Celebrate spring and take a look in Amsterdam's largest park (Amsterdamse Bos) for the annual flowering of the Japanese cherry trees. It is a magnificent sight to see the 400 Cherry trees donated by the Japan Women's Club in full bloom. This is a place that is important to the large Japanese community in Amsterdam, but more and more Amsterdammers are also coming to see the flowers. But there is much more to see in the Amsterdamse Bos. We take a short trip through the Amsterdamse Bos, see the famous rowing course and enjoy spring with fresh green leaves, beautiful flowers (tulips) and blooming cherry and other trees.
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

Granted that Cherry blossoms are very nice to observe , it was a rather narrow subject to command the amount of time spend , in my opinion ! Stephan did an outstanding monolog with the subject at hand . Thank you for your effort . Nick B.

He gave a very good history of the Blossom Park and other parks. The cherry trees were lovely and he gave lots of opportunity to take photos. Time well spent despite the fact it was raining.
