Your Experience will take you on a ferry ride North from the old classic Amsterdam to the hip industrial docklands where you will view and capture a vast contrasting and spectacular view of the city.

I am a photography addict and a working photographer and tour guide living in picturesque Amsterdam for over 7 years. Providing this Experience is a calling more than anything else to provide a special and memorable experience for all visitors to Amsterdam, and help them capture and share unique photos of their visit to Instagram.
As they say, it’s not a job if you love what you do, and that sums me up as a host of this experience.

Where you'll be

We’ll get acquainted as we Instawalk our way into the infamous Red Light District in the oldest part of Amsterdam with classic, winding canals and narrow 17th century architecture that Amsterdam is famous for. From here, we will make our way to a ferry across the IJ river to the Northern docklands where you will discover a vastly contrasting and progressive Amsterdam for you to create memorable photos to post to your Instagram account.

Jimmy offers a category defining world class experience through his Insta walks. What I appreciate most: ✅ Personalized, white glove service ✅ Learn some history of Amsterdam ✅ See parts of Amsterdam that tourists (and maybe even locals) don’t realize is there ✅ Learn how to take professional looking photos to share on Instagram and other social channels Jimmy is the real deal and this was a memorable experience. If he has room for you I encourage you to book immediately. This was a great experience! I’ve been to Amsterdam about seven times, but I learned so much new information during this experience. I recommend this tour with Amsterdam veterans or first time visitors.

To say this experience was amazing is an understatement! First, Jimmy as a person is incredible. We immediately felt comfortable with him, and felt as if we had known him forever. It was as if we were just hanging out with a great friend. He is patient, kind, humble and very smart! He is knowledgeable about photography and I walked away feeling more confident about taking pictures that don’t suck. My husband and I have been to Amsterdam about 6 times and it was as if we were seeing it for the first time! We walked through parts of Amsterdam we had never seen, we discovered areas we didn’t even know existed and there were great photo opps along the way. The experience is personalized and we come away knowing more about the history of the city, and how to great pictures. Jimmy also got some great shots of us along the way too! At the moment, he is the only one who provides this service in Amsterdam, and it is worth every penny and a whole lot more. I highly recommend it!

This is the tour you want if you are planning a walking tour in Amsterdam! Not only does Jimmy take you through the city showing its beauty, he also takes you to the cool, lesser known parts, ending up at a really cool bar/restaurant, he is also super friendly and has a passion for photography he shares with you. During our walk he taught me to take amazing photos, helping me with the issues I struggled with and I can now take much better pics than before. We also had a really nice conversation. So I highly recommend this tour!

What a brilliant concept!! We were drawn to this tour based on reviews as well as how simplistic and relevant the tour objective is. Jimmy was prompt with communication and even accepted us on a day a tour wasn’t planned since our flight prohibited us from attending on a scheduled day. We really appreciated this. We had a great experience!! Jimmy was very friendly, timely and was helpful in providing tips and tricks for Instagram photos and also shared information about Amsterdam and the landscape. His direction was very clear and something I’ve already implemented in photos I’ve taken since the tour. The time flew by and we got some really great photos from our time with Jimmy. I’d definitely recommend this tour and will look him up again if I return to Amsterdam!!

You won't regret it!!
