Amsterdam off the beaten tracks

bord1_0You know it’s there: the real Amsterdam, behind the tourist highlights. You want to get to know it, but how? Searching through travellers blogs will help, in a way. But in fact you want to experience Amsterdam the way locals do and preferably meet up with one or two locals.
If you do want that, Gidsy might be what you need. It’s a (new) online marketplace offering activities like tours and workshops by locals. They offer bike rides, walking tours, visits to a cafĂ© or museum, or invite you for dinner in their house and much more. And of course all kind of combinations are possible. Usually it’s just you and the guide, no big groups, so the host can create a tailor made activity based on your interests.
This might be tourism of the future!
