 who is amsterdam? experience


The Red Light District. Coffee shops. Bicycles. Canals. Entrepreneurship. Free thinking. The happiest children in the world! Oh, and beer.  Amsterdam is famous for many things. But how do we really live? Let us take you into the living room of our city to experience the real Amsterdam. Skip your guide books and enter the minds and lives of iconic Amsterdammers!

From a sex worker, a bike mechanic, local pirate, to a cannabis connoisseur. We interviewed a bunch of interesting locals to bring you real-life stories you can't hear elsewhere. You'll even meet two of them! Follow us to iconic local places that locals love and enjoy some local food and drinks (Did we mention Amsterdam's favourite apple pie?) to keep you going. Trust us, this is one epic Amsterdam adventure you'll never forget.

How does this experience work?

We start off with a warm welcome! Then our adventure begins. We take you to 8 stops where we share stories of 8 unique locals. We don't wanna spoil the fun, but it's good to know that some places we go to include a cannabis cafe, a brothel, an epic local business with a hidden secret, and Amsterdam's most special microbrewery. Halfway, we also stop at a 200 year old brown cafe to enjoy Amsterdam's best apple pie and a beverage. Sounds good, right?

Why is called Who is Amsterdam?

We believe the heart of a city are the people. That's why we choose to share real-life stories instead of facts and figures of iconic Amsterdam topics. Stories stick. Facts fade.

What is the minimum/maximum group size?

To keep things intimate, the biggest group size is 8 persons tops and 2 to get started.

Can I book an experience outside of the times and days as stated?

Availability is dependent on the featured Amsterdammers. Email us at least a week in advance to inquire.

Is this experience alright for teens?

We talk about cannabis and sex work, but nothing too explicit. We see this as an educational and informative experience, so if you don't mind, we won't say no!
