Mark will show Amsterdam's iconic and important buildings and focus on one or two buildings per tour. Because they are not always next to each other he will zip you through town either by bicycle or on his scooter to get from one building to the next. The first tour will introduce 'Amsterdam School' architecture. This is an unusual mix of Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Mackintosh, Arts & Crafts, but rooted in Brick Expressionism and has a look all of its own. At present, the tours will be from outside the buildings until measures are lifted and Mark can arrange interior access. The two buildings that will be shown and explained in detail on the first tour are the Scheepvaarthuis, now the Grand Hotel Amrath, and the wonderful Tuschinski Theatre. Both of these buildings are exceptionally detailed with the Tuschinski being completely over the top!
Mark has been sharing places and stories about Amsterdam, his adopted home, for 10 years now and he is still smitten by the place! He absolutely loves distilling chunks of history into bite-sized bits of fun. The vibrancy of the city takes his breath away, and he loves finding odd little details to share. Live-streaming tours are an exciting adventure as it is possible to open places and areas that are not accessible on in-person tours!
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Amsterdam with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Amsterdam. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
The majority of your tip goes directly to support the channel, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
Reserve your spot by selecting a time to book. Once done, you’ll be able to see your reservations on your Trips page and we’ll send you an email confirmation with a link to join the tour.
