Hi! I’m Sarah
I founded Sarah’s Tours. I have a degree in International Communication and Media. After working in the hospitality and service industry for more than 10 years, and working as an Amsterdam private guide for an extensive period, I started Sarah’s Tours. Connecting with people from all over the world and showing them a great 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. This has inspired me to live abroad, in London and Dublin, but I always come home to Amsterdam.
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 perspectieve.

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 amoungst 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 tranformative moment while exploring something new.
My name is Max. I am 25 years old, Dutch and always in a for a good chat.
I love travelling and meeting up with people from all over the world and exchanging cultures.
I love Amsterdam. There is no better feeling in the world than biking next to the Amstel river and feeling the fresh Amsterdam air.
I like the fact that the city has so much to offer in every season.
I was born in the city of Utrecht, the smaller, less know neighbouring city of Amsterdam.
If you are interested, I know this city by heart so a tour in Utrecht with me is also a guaranteed success!

I promise you, a day with me is never boring!
