About the tour

Amsterdam is a beautiful city, but after the sun goes down it turns into a fairytale. Join Mark on some of the most beautiful canals, alongside the wonderful Amsterdam canal houses and see the beautifully lit bridges and the typical houseboats. During this trip, your guide will tell you about the history of the canals and how important they are for Amsterdam now and in the past. It also provides a nice insight into a number of typical Dutch customs that we only see during the evenings. Are you going to get lost in Amsterdam with Mark?

Meet your local guide


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

Stephan is a fun tour guide with a unique take on guiding...on a bicycle . It is a very quick way to cover ground and probably safer than walking and getting run over by cyclist! It appears to be a unique way of life, both fun and serious at the same time. Because of the pandemic and curfew, there were few people out and about! I plan to travel with S

Windy, wobbly and stressful. I am glad you did not get a ticket.

Stephan...Was so looking forward to your bike tours as well as your other tours. BUT the motion just didn’t sit right with me. I’m sure it was stunning at night.
