In Greek mythology, Odysseus’ adventurous journey led him to various new places and brought him multiple unexpected encounters. That’s what we aim to do with you too. Don’t worry: we won’t let you fight with gods and cyclopes (although, Zeus or no Zeus, Dutch weather can also be quite unpredictable!).
We invite everyone who is interested in Amsterdam to join us on a discovering journey into the heart and soul of our city. We offer customised tours through all the parts of the city where daily life and history meet. Needless to say, we stay off the beaten tracks of mass tourism.

Hello, I’m Hanneke, film scholar and teacher of art history. In 2006 I started giving guided museum tours in several museums in Amsterdam and dove into the history of the city where I was born and raised. Working in the restaurant business made me realize that I love making people feel at home.
I love the concept of Amsterdam Odyssey because it offers people a chance to get to know and enjoy the city like I do. The fact that we always create our tours based on the wishes and interest of our participants, ensures that my job as a guide will always be about discovering and connecting with people in a meaningful way.

Hi, I’m Eva, anthropologist and teacher of social sciences. Since 2010 I have been involved in several projects around sustainability and social development. Once I realized I prefer going beyond ‘ready-made jobs’, I started creating my own variations, one of them being Amsterdam Odyssey.
What I love about Amsterdam Odyssey is that everything I value, comes together. I have a passion for the city I was born and raised in. I enjoy sharing my extensive knowledge and enthusiasm with others, and I love involving people in the society around them, connecting them with each other and their surroundings.
Hi, I’m Huibert, I studied history and graphic design. I walk, cycle, boat and canoe people through Amsterdam since 2003, telling tales from beyond the obvious about everything connected with Amsterdam. I like surprising people and Amsterdam is full of surprises. Storytelling is a great way to make a connection between people and places.
Amsterdam is unique and so is Amsterdam Odyssey. Eva and Hanneke started this great concept and it suits me like a glove. By creating custom based tours you never stop exploring!
