About the tour

We start the tour in the city's entertainment district before exploring Amsterdam’s largest urban park, the Vondelpark. Learn how it developed from a stuffy private garden to wild stamping ground of the flower power movement. Find hidden gems and famous artworks including a Picasso, all surrounded by some of the city’s most elegant architecture.

Meet Lee


Lee is a Dutch-Canadian who's worked as a professional guide and boat captain since 2009. Originally trained as a ballet dancer, she left the stage to travel the world, having visited over 100 countries so far, dancing, teaching and volunteering along the way. Among her most memorable experience was an extended tour through North Korea! As much as she loves exploring different cultures around the globe, she's just as happy at home in her favourite city, and can't wait to share with Heygoers all the reasons why Amsterdam is so amazing! Having joined countless tours along her travels and having led over 3,500 tours of her own, Lee has learned what makes a tour unforgettable . Her tours are carefully researched and not only cover detailed Dutch history and culture, but also fun facts, hidden gems, and tips on where to find the best shops, markets and food!
