Follow Rembrandt's footsteps during this walking tour through Amsterdam, guided by his artwork. We will go back in time and relive the Golden Age while following the great painter in his neighborhood. I will introduce you to some of his friends, his relatives and his family. Discover the secrets of his love life and how his most famous painting would become to be the beginning of his end. Explore the Amsterdam canals that were constructed during his lifetime. Listen to the church bells of the Zuiderkerk like he did centuries ago. On the way we will make a stop where we will enjoy a drink and a traditional Dutch 'gevulde koek'.
Amsterdam has been my home for the last seventeen years. I just love my city and its beauty and I can not wait to show you how unique and thrilling this place is! I have been working as an actor and tour guide at the world-renowned Rijksmuseum for the last seven years. There, I discovered my passion for Rembrandt and the Golden Age. Living in Hong Kong for three years made me realize the value of a city's hidden stories. As an enthusiastic traveller, I like to show people my city through the eyes of a local.
