About the tour

Explore a truly local market in Amsterdam East with Lee. This is her home turf and a vibrant, multicultural neighbourhood street market called the Dapper Market. It lies just outside the famous historic city center and its products truly reflect the diversity of the local residents. Pass by stalls, learn about local Dutch as well as exotic delights: think poffertjes, stroopwafels, strange French fry toppings and Surinamese kitchen, the original fusion food. To finish off, you head to one of the tallest and photogenic of the country's urban windmills to hear about Amsterdam's favourite craft beer.

Meet your local guide


Lee was born into a Dutch family but grew up mainly in Toronto Canada. Trained as a ballet dancer, she left the stage to travel and work around the world, having visited over 100 countries so far. She has been working as a professional Amsterdam guide and boat captain since 2009, and loves to share her knowledge of Dutch history, fun anecdotes, and importantly, of where the best food is!

Lee has been guiding since Aug 2009

Lee’s voice is so pleasant that it made a great tour a delight! The interaction with the vendors was lots of fun, and Lee wove in very interesting information as she walked about. I’m looking forward to taking more tours with Lee!

We liked the way Lee explained about each of the stalls on the market, it was like we were standing next to her. It was very interesting to see round a less touristy area of Amsterdam. Thank you.

Really nice and informative tour! She has a very sympathetic talking voice which makes it easy to follow along and soak up all the info she's giving. I also liked the interaction with the viewers, especially the answering of questions. It's so much better than watching some video on YouTube because it's live, it's real and you get all your questions answered right away. Keep it up!
