Our story

Creating a lifelong Amsterdam experience in a few hours

LocalLayover.com was founded in November 2016 by Peter-Jan (PJ) Plasmans. PJ grew up in Amsterdam and has lived in different parts of the city. During his student time he was hosting many couch surfers from all different kind of countries, religions and cultures. It is in this period that he discovered his endless love for the city. He loves the canals and that’s why he likes to spend his days riding his bike over the little bridges or on his boat on the canal belt. He figured to pass on his love for Amsterdam by giving tours, tours with a local touch. PJ is passionate about travelling and getting in touch with different cultures.

I hope to meet you in person soon!
