We will meet at my house where we first drink a cup of coffee or tea and you can tell me your wishes. Starting point of the tour is Amsterdam south ‘la Riviera’, where I will take you to the most amazing vintage and second hand shops. From there we go to the historical house where ANNE FRANK and her family lived for nine years before going into hiding, we will see the memorial stones, statue and historical bookstore where she got the diary. We will move up to the district ‘de Pijp’. This area is similar to the Paris quartier latin and has it all. From used or vintage shops to hipster cool and of course the Albert Cuyp market with its many local food stands and restaurant. There we can rest a bit before we proceed on our shopping spree. Meanwhile I will tell you all the in- and outsides and some history of the neighbourhood. At the end I will give you some tips of some more stores in other parts of Amsterdam and what to do and where to go to in Amsterdam during your stay.
As a film director I may say that I have developed an excellent knowledge of styling and locations. For 30 years I have been doing my own styling and I like vintage and second hand clothing because each piece is unique. This is something what I portray in my films and also in my own style. For this reason I am always looking in second hand/vintage shops and I found some hidden gems in my search. I would like to share these with you and tell you all about Amsterdam, my city which I love and know much about. I am also a Superhost, search for: "Garden room ground floor 4p near Rai & centre".
During our shopping tour I will tell you also about the history of the neighbourhoods we will be in and visit some icons like: De Rivierenbuurt known for the birthplace of Anne Frank and the architect Berlage De Pijp district is often compared with Paris Quartier Latin. In this district you also find the Europeans biggest market. Here you can try local food. If you know your way in De pijp, the district got it all

the route which we will take is full of history, so during our walk there is enough time to tell you about the neighbourhood which is filled with historic aspects
