What you'll do

Discover the streets & buildings in the Old Westhood with me

I'm a big fan of Old West since 2005; from the beginning it always amazed me that there’s a great diversity in streets & buildings on such a very small surface.

That’s why I will take you on a walking tour to show you the fantastic variety in this neighborhood. You will discover the hidden gems and you'll be surprised that all be found on such a short walking distance.

What to expect? We’ll pass by several historical buildings that had been renovated and gained a new purpose, like the WG-terrain (former hospital), Lab111 (former anatomical laboratorium) and a former tramdepot. Well 'go from a church to a mosque, from a busy shopping street to a quiet street with ‘village’ vibe next to a local market. We’ll end the walk at my favorite bar where we can share what impressed us the most!

My name is Willem, 43 years, Dutch, born & raised in a small Dutch village called Beesd, big fan of Amsterdam since 1998, working in tourism. I believe you will enjoy more if you discover the hidden gems & the ‘off the beaten track’ in Amsterdam and the rest of the Netherlands. For this reason I have started a local platform called Mister Local, which enables you to go where the locals go!

Willem was a friendly guide and he was accommodating with our scheduling needs. The tour itself however was mediocre and lacked the unique experience I usually come to AirBnB experiences for.

Willem was at the meeting place and ready before I arrived. He was clear in his communications and friendly. He gave me a map of the city before we started the tour and pointed out for me our trip. He is a local and has been living in Amsterdam for a long time and that showed in his knowledge about the beautiful historical buildings and streets that I wouldn’t be able to see if it weren’t for this tour.In addition, he gave me a lot of helpful suggestions of things to do that I didn’t find when I was looking up things to do. I highly recommend it!

An absolutely great experience with a lovely guide who made me discovered Amsterdam as a Charmant little village and a fantastique location. But I let you discover this with him i do not want to reveal the secret
