Hand-Crafted Tour

The bricks and cobbles of the Amsterdam streets and canals exude history and make you wish you knew the background story of every building and bridge. Wouldn't it be nice to have your own cicerone walking you through the secrets of the neighbourhood, based on your own preferences and interests? Once again, we've got you covered with a package from the Neighbourhood Experiences collection!

The Tailored Odyssey package, which we created in collaboration with our long-term neighbours Amsterdam Odyssey, is your opportunity to get a tailor-made tour of the neighbourhood: over a two-hour walking tour, you will get under the skin of the city and beyond ready-made itineraries, while learning about the aspects that most tickle your fancy as a traveller.

Our neighbours Eva (an anthropologist) and Hanneke (an art historian) are not your usual tour guides. They founded Amsterdam Odyssey to take travellers beyond the usual highlights, to inspire, inform and entertain them with tours that can be adjusted to best satisfy their personal preferences and interests.

Their guides - all real and passionate Amsterdammers - have a minimum level of Master's degree in History, Social Sciences and/or Art History, and only work with small groups of curious travellers. This allows them to give travellers the most personalised and memorable experience possible.

Once you book your Tailored Odyssey package, we will refer you to Amsterdam Odyssey to reserve your time slot for the walking tour. If you wish to upgrade to a cycling tour, you can take advantage of a very special offer included in the package and get 75% off our regular bike rental fee. Either way, one of their awesome guides will pick you up at Yays to take you on an unforgettable journey.

The Tailored Odyssey Experience includes:

  • A minimum stay of 2 nights at Yays
  • Welcome drinks in the apartment
  • Two-hour private walking tour (for max. 6 guests) customisable to your preference
  • A gift voucher to spend in the neighbourhood
  • Special price on Yays Bike rental: 5 EUR /bike/day instead of 20 EUR (subject to availability, only for guests above 14 years of age)
  • Free parking at some of our locations, subject to availability
