Private Tours

Enjoy the Guide all to yourself. Select from our normal tour offer or customize to your needs!

A walking tour is the very best way to get a detailed understanding of Amsterdam. Private tours are booked by email so that we can discuss your requirements and specific interests and come up with the right tour for you.

Please e-mail [email protected] for more info and bookings.

You can call, too (+31 6272 69604) but I often cannot answer if I am giving a tour or in a meeting.

  • Chevron down Private Tulip Tour (6 hours)
  • 1 to 4 people = 525€ (vehicle is a comfortable car, with 3 in the back seat)

    4 to 8 people = 575€ (vehicle is a Mercedes Vito Tourer minivan)


    We spend 2 to 3 hours with you at Keukenhof Gardens and show you the best of the gardens. When there are flower fields in bloom, which is most of the season, we find places to stop so we can take photos of the fields and of you in the fields. The tour can also include a lunch/snacks stop at the gardens or at the lovely local pancake restaurant that we visit on the scheduled group tour.

    This package includes driving, guiding and transport, but does not include lunch/snacks or Keukenhof Gardens admission. The ticket selling at Keukenhof is incredibly quick and efficient and there is never much of a line.

    • Keukenhof entrance tickets cost 18€ per person for adults, 8€ for under 17s.

    If you would like to add in a walk around Haarlem, then add 100€ to the prices above and the trip will take about 8 hours.

  • Chevron down Amsterdam Walking Tour (3 hours)
  • Group of between 1 and 10 people = 175€ in total.

    A group of up to 20 is sometimes possible, please e-mail me at [email protected] with details for a price.

    Our most booked private tour follows the itinerary of our Amsterdam Walking Tour which gives you a great overview of the city’s 800 year old history, right up to current social policy and an insight into what it is like being a local and living in this iconic old town. Private tours are completely flexible and you decide the pace. If you enjoy a quick walk, we can do that and cover more ground and topics. If you have an particular area of interest we can focus on that and drill down in detail about any topic. We can also start from anywhere central and still tell a coherent and interesting story of the city.

  • Chevron down Red Light District Tour (1.5 hours)
  • Group of between 1 and 10 people = €150 in total – start time not after 5pm

    From April 1st, 2019 Amsterdam City Council  has banned larger groups from 7pm onwards.

    Groups of between 1 and 4 people can still tour the area with a guide after 7pm. The cost of that is €150. Our suggested starting time is 8:30pm.

    We offer educational and detailed 90 minute red light district tours, starting at 8:30pm or 9pm. Our tours are respectful of the area and the people working there and you learn about all aspects of the district and the industry. Tours are banned after 7pm in the red light district for reasons that we will discuss when we show you around. But that restriction only applies to larger groups. We can still take you there at night as long as there are no more than 4 people in your group (plus 1 guide makes 5 people). Red Light Tours are definitely better at night!

  • Chevron down Amsterdam Windmill Tour (6 hours)
  • 1 to 4 people = 525€ (vehicle is a comfortable car, with 3 in the back seat)

    4 to 8 people =575€ (vehicle is a Mercedes Vito Tourer minivan)


    This includes driving, guiding and transport, but does not include food or windmill admission. Pricing it this way allows you the flexibility to diverge from our curated itinerary and not pay unnecessary costs. Most private groups are happy to follow our curated itinerary, and in that case, the following costs should be expected:

    • Coffee and pie – 5€ pp (though you can always order more, less, or different items)
    • Picnic supplies – we’ll stop at a lovely deli in Monnickendam and you can choose your own ingredients. 5 – 10€ pp is plenty. The guide can bring utensils
    • Windmill – 4.50€ pp from April to the end of October. In winter and spring, we visit a different windmill and the fee will either be a total of 15€ or €65 (depending on whether they have to open especially for us)

    And just so there’s absolute clarity, we’re happy to diverge from this plan at your request. For example, you might want a proper sit-down lunch in a restaurant or no lunch if you’re all full of apple pie. No problem either way.
