Full description

Get into the Christmas spirit as you explore Amsterdam with a local guide. Stroll through the charming narrow streets and along the canals as they twinkle with festive lights.

Follow the unique route of the Amsterdam Light Festival to see the stunning art installations made of colorful lights that are draped over the canals, lighting up the water with beautiful colors.

Browse a Christmas market, indulging in some local foodie treats, warming up with a mulled wine or hot chocolate and maybe buying some unique Christmas gifts to take home.

Visit one of the city’s well-loved ice-rinks - and enjoy Amsterdam’s classic Christmas scene. Get tips and tricks from your local guide about other Christmasy things to do in the city, and let them recommend places to eat where you can try traditional festive cuisine. The hosts are not tour guides by profession, instead, they are local people who have a passion for showing off the bests of Amsterdam.

After booking, the team will contact you within 24 hours and ask you questions about your preferences and interests, so they can match you with the right profile and assign a like-minded Amsterdam local.

Keeping in mind your personal answers, your local host will put together a bespoke itinerary just for you. Please note that this will be outlined but flexible. Your host will arrange the most convenient meeting place for you.

If you feel like changing direction during the meet-up, or if your local host believes that you'd enjoy a sight or different experience, they will suggest and discuss changes to the itinerary.
