I’m Sarah
The owner of Sarah’s Tours. During my studies, I worked in the hospitality industry and as a private tour guide. After graduating in the field of cultural communication, I founded Sarah’s Tours.

Connecting with people from all over the world and showing them a great time is my true passion. I grew up with a Scottish mum and Moroccan dad. A lot of people ask me how they met. Well, they fell in love in (and with) Amsterdam, so here I am! That’s what makes Amsterdam so special to me: it’s a melting pot of cultures.



I’m Aglaya.
I’m born in Amsterdam, from a Russian family. I studied Anthropology and I am interested in culture and different angles to look at it. I’m active and spontaneous.

Anything interests me, so we will have a great time for sure! I will show you Amsterdam from a locals perspective.



Selina is a New Zealander who now call the Netherlands home. Her background is in Art History, and as fate would have it, her dissertation was on Rembrandt at University. Fast-forward 10 years, and she is now living amongst the art and architecture that has inspired her since school. With a background in Museum and Gallery Education at the Auckland Art Gallery, bringing artworks and buildings to life through storytelling, and connecting them to our own lives, is what she loves to do.

Since establishing a charity in New Zealand with her best friend, that engages older people living with dementia through art and creativity, Selina has seen how these experiences can become transformative moments for people. While she is passionate about history and art history, equally important to her is that you have a personal connection through your experience, and maybe have your own transformative moment while exploring something new.
