We lead the way.
You choose the stories.
This self-guided tour experience uses audio, images, maps, and text to introduce you to the women, BIPOC, LGBT+, and Jewish people who made Amsterdam what it is. On your own. On your phone.
Who are Elyzabeth & Shea?
Elyzabeth is a writer and research junkie with a passion for details. Originally from the US, she’s an award-winning theatre director and dramaturg, as well as a compelling storyteller. Her focus? Stories about the history of women, the LGBTQ population, and other marginalized groups.
Shea built a career in New York as an international producer with Blue Man Group. When he moved to Amsterdam, he pivoted to user-centered performances and technology. As a leader and designer, he aims to engage and empower people, to surprise and inspire them. They end up doing just the same for him.
What's This Experience About?
One of the best things to do in Amsterdam is explore it. We’ve created a different approach than a normal tour – a wonderful way to discover Amsterdam and the incredible people who made the city what it is. You get to choose one or several themes at every location. WHY?
A guided tour isn’t for everyone
For those who want to discover in their own pace and avoid difficulties of being part of a group tour. Sometimes you simply prefer to explore on your own. After booking our Tour, you have access to our online environment for two weeks to take it all in.
Each location starts with an overview. Then you can choose stories from our four badass themes from Amsterdam’s hidden history. Read as many as you like at each location – we even have a recommended story if you need help choosing. Just follow your interest!
