Hello, my name is Alexandra. I'm the owner and founder of Who Is Amsterdam Tours

I was born in Poland, I grew up in Germany, and for the last 11 years, I have been living in Amsterdam. My home. I feel very blessed that I was able to grow up internationally. Learning from different cultures and people makes me feel rich. This is why I created Who Is Amsterdam Tours. To help you connect to my home city through something we all have in common: our humanity.

My background lies in Sales and Marketing. I worked for several corporates, like Beiersdorf and Heineken. In 2017 I left the corporate world and I founded Who Is Amsterdam. In my free time I always loved to do improv theatre, stand-up comedy or poetry slams. 

The idea: 

 

To keep travelling real. To create a platform where every topic Amsterdam is famous for can be explored through the eyes of the people who live here. Real life with all its beauty and challenges. 

Who Is Amsterdam Tours is my Love Letter, my Thank You to the city which gives me space to simply be me. 

Collaboration with Mezrab,

School of storytelling

To bring the stories to life, we collaborated with the Mezrab storytelling school. The amazing Raphael Rodan, co-owner of the storytelling school, has put his whole heart into co-writing the stories with us. 

Together, we went on a creative journey to find the heart and soul of every story.  To help you walk in the shoes of an Amsterdammer for a day. So you can feel what it's really like to live in our beautiful city. 

Partner in Crime

Rachael

Sometimes things happen for a reason. Meeting Rachael was definitly meant to be. 

We met on a tram, only to find that we share the same passion for the city, the art of storytelling and standup comedy. Fast forward 12 months and we are partners in crime. Rachael guides the tours and she has also been of tremendous help with copywriting and almost everything else.
