Touristless Tour

In March I was hired to take two visitors from the United States on a tour of Amsterdam, taking in some of the city centre sights, along with some of its history and culture.

Unfortunately, two days before the planned meet-up, the Covid-19 pandemic threatened air travel back to the States, so my clients were forced to leave Europe on the first available flight.

Disappointed by cutting their European vacation short, I was asked by the travelers if I could still conduct the tour on my own and send them documentation of the things they would have seen.

Here is a link to the resulting photographic record of a circular city hike around the center of Amsterdam at the beginning of the 2020 corona virus outbreak:


Later posts on that blog also show the city in the following weeks, when all is deserted.

This link shows documentation of a walk through deserted Amsterdam, taking in the sights of the former most visited places of the city:
