Overview

A pedicab tour is a very unique service that allows you to see a lot of highlights in a very short time. In just a couple of hours we can cover an area that would likely take multiple days with a walking guide. It doesn't mean we will rush past the different sights though. We will make plenty of stops and I love to go in depth on topics that have played a significant part in the history of the city as well as those relevant today. My tours are focused on the history of Amsterdam from the very beginning, through the centuries till present day. Not only will i talk about the sights we can still see nowadays, but also about those that disappeared but played a significant role in the history of the city, like for example parts of the jewish neighberhood. Being a native-born local, I can share also the changes I have personally witnessed in the last 4 decades and put everything into a bigger perspective. If you have any specific wishes for the tour or like to extend it, just let me know.
