About the tour

This trip is all about art and culture! The Museum Quarter is the cultural center of Amsterdam and it’s filled with museums, churches, and beautiful green parks. The center of the museum quarter is Museum Square. On this square, which is almost more like a park as it’s a long stretch of grass, you’ll find three of the most visited museums in the Netherlands: The Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, and Stedelijk Museum – all amazing places in their own right. So put on your learning glasses, grab your notebook and let’s take a virtual walk around! We will go around and under the Rijksmuseum, will learn about Rembrandt and some other Dutch Masters, see the beautiful facade of the Rijksmuseum and explore the Museum Square in the heart of Amsterdam.


Meet your local guide

Stephan

Stephan is a real Dutchie, he was born in Delft (the city of Vermeer), grown up in Gouda (the cheese city), studied in Leiden (city of Rembrandt) and he lived in Rotterdam (the harbour city) before moving to our capital Amsterdam in 2006. After a career in technology as an Online Strategist, he decided to leave behind the corporate world to start guiding visitors of Amsterdam and started his own private tour agency, Amsterdam Experiences. He found out that walking and cycling around the city with international visitors is a lot more fun than a desk job! As a host, Stephan loves to show his virtual guests, the hidden gems in Amsterdam through the eyes of a local. He has a passion for telling stories about Dutch history and culture. So join him on the bike or by foot, and see the highlights of Amsterdam.

Stephan has been guiding since Jul 2016
