Walking excursion Eastern Docklands

Come and see modern Amsterdam! During the excursion we’ll tell you all about the rich history of the Eastern Docklands, as well as the new architecture on KNSM and Java island, Borneo and Sporenburg. We will take you along cultivated warehouses, the old Lloyd hotel and impressive residential buildings on Borneo and Sporenburg.

Walking excursion Eastern Docklands

On KNSM island old and new ways of building fit beautifully together. The architects took into account the old port character of this island, which led to architecture of international élan.
Java island shows a completely different site, with its gardens, small canals, bridges and special fronts.

Many interesting stories
The guide told us many interesting stories. Everybody was very enthusiastic and I only got positive reviews from the group. Thank you for this! G. Schuiling
Just right for our group!
The reactions of the participants were unanimous; they all loved it. Especially the amusing way in which the information was brought was appreciated very much. I consider this a great compliment! After the boattrip we had a nice dinner. Just right for our group! Thanks very much and maybe till some other time...... Mw. Meinders
Interesting for everybody!
We really enjoyed the architecture excursion through the Eastern Docklands. Our group of architects, urban planners, traffic experts and engineers had an informative but also very pleasant afternoon. According to us this excursion is not just for experts but is also very nice and interesting for everybody else.T. Douma / Gemeente Sneek
You get to parts of Amsterdam you wouldn't normally go to
More than two interesting, entertaining and informative hours!! You get to parts of Amsterdam that you wouldn't normally walk to. It was very relaxed walking and listening to the guide. Also the organization by Local Experts was spotless, to the point without surprises. Don't hesitate to book a guide for say 2 hours and you really experience the city in a completely different way!

A great day!
We had a really good time! You made it a great day. Roel knew how to strike the exact right note and his distinct interest in and knowledge of (the history of) Amsterdam are a relief compared with the average city guide. T. van Zwet
