Explore Amsterdam's historical center on your own, with a little help from us. This self-guided tour experience uses audio, images, maps, and text to introduce you to the women, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and Jewish people who made Amsterdam what it is. Why not let you choose what people you want to learn about? We set the direction and the stops along the way, providing a snapshot of the city. Then at each stop, choose from four unique badasses to learn about, thereby curating your own experience. (We even have a recommended story if you need help choosing.) Learn about as many as you want at each stop, getting a perspective on Amsterdam like never before. This self-curated tour meets the needs of travelers and locals alike who want to explore in their own way. Go at your own pace. Take breaks in between and do something else. Explore the city at 3am. Return to stops to uncover more badasses or to rediscover your favorites. Bonus: Need a tour in French, German, Italian, or another language? Use your preferred auto-translate browser or plug-in, and all text will be translated! Want a little taste of the stories we have for you? Dirkje Kuik, who paved the way for trans people around the world, shares a stage with Mina Kruseman, a 19th-century actress who first promoted anticolonial writer Multatuli and then went to war with him. A single site covers Indonesian hero Surapati, the financial backer of the Dutch invasion of England, and a group of women whose names are as lost as their cause was. A 17th-century interfaith relationship rubs shoulders with 20th-century protests that brought down a homophobic law.
