About Us

That Dam Guide began providing small group tours in December of 2013, inspired to provide a more personalized tour service. Amsterdam has an abundance of charm and beauty and we show you the city’s character in a conversational way, matching it to your personal interests.


Here is an introduction to our guides:


Hi, I’m now Dutch but originally from South Africa and came to Amsterdam in 1991. Amsterdam was amazing then too and I loved it so much that I stayed for 4 years. Next was a stint in England where I studied law, worked in property development. I chucked it all in 2009 and came back to Amsterdam and became a tour guide. I’ve always loved the city and the sense of community in the neighborhoods here.

Sinking roots here is the happiest thing I’ve done. I started ‘That Dam Guide’ in 2013. Guiding has been so much fun, doing what I love best, showing visitors around beautiful Amsterdam and constantly ferreting out new places to go and things to do. I provide small group and private tours in and around Amsterdam.

Please get in touch if you have any questions:


Hi, I’m from the Netherlands but grew up in Toronto, Canada. Until age 22, I was immersed in the ballet world, before reluctantly discovering there was a whole universe outside the studio.

After traveling extensively to study, teach, and explore other careers, I eventually found my way back to Amsterdam, where I have been giving tours since 2009. My work allows me to share my passion for my favorite city while getting enough exercise to eat as much apple pie as I like.


Hi, I’m from New Jersey but have lived in the Netherlands since 2003. I love the good quality of life here and the really strong sense of community and people are connected.

The best thing about being a tour guide is meeting people from different countries and walks of life and sharing my passion for Amsterdam with them. Oh, and getting on my bike is instant happiness.
