Walking with a Homeless guy in Amsterdam

Take a tour in Amsterdam with a homeless person. Mokum Events' special tourguide will show you how some unfortunate people actually live, but get along.

You might think it's scary, but it's actually a great way to experience the creativity and perseverance of people and to catch a glimpse of their lifestory!

Have you ever thought what would happen if you suddenly lost your job, your income and your home? It looks like a dreadful scenario, but unfortunately, it happens virtually every day.

Mokum Events has found a homeless person in Amsterdam who experienced it all. He would like to tell you how it happened and how his daily life changed.

Take a walk with this very interesting person and experience what it's like to live on the streets, to depend on the generosity of other people, to eat what you and I think not to be healthy anymore and to sleep at the Salvation Army or at worst, to sleep in a cardboard box in the open air!

Yet, your homeless person is not unhappy! He will tell you with pleasure his story and the adventures of his drifting friends. He will show you his Mokum; from the homeless shelter at the Wallen to the abandoned houses where many spend a night. He will point to the rubbish bins of restaurants, where at times a royal meal can be made from hearty scraps.

This man understands the art of showing you two parallel worlds: a neighbourhood which on the one side is sad, but on the other is carefree and very happy!

Including:
  • Professional guide (a real A'dam resident with years of experience)
  • Can be booked for the day and time you prefer!

You can book this arrangement with fewer participants than stated on this page, if you are willing to pay for the required number!

Does ‘Mokum Events’ only speak and guide the events in Dutch, or are other languages also available?
Our guides speak several languages, so almost all trips, excursions, guided tours and arrangements can also be followed in various languages.
Our group is smaller than the minimum number of participants, can I still join the event?
Yes, you can. However, since we commit ourselves for a minimum number of participants, we request you to pay this minimum rate. Please, contact us in advance!
Where in Amsterdam do the arrangements start?
Many trips start in the vicinity of the Amsterdam Central Railway Station (CS), but this depends completely on the chosen arrangement. Our employees will advise you in advance about the right point of departure.
Is my requested date available?
Through our systems, we can immediately check if your requested arrangement is available on the planned date. If so, we’ll advise you to make a reservation as soon as possible in order to avoid disappointments.
At what time can I start the event?
You can specify this entirely according to you wishes! This will however partly depend on the chosen arrangement, but in principle the events start whenever you want them to start!
an we also join guided tours or workshops made by other groups?
No, unfortunately you can not. “Mokum Events” organises trips and arrangements exclusively for groups, completely tailored to specific desires. It’s for that reason other persons can’t join arrangements made by other groups of people.
Do the trips also take place in bad weather?
Definitely! If it rains, we also go into town! We can arrange rain ponchos and umbrellas if necessary and can stay in the pub a bit longer. Amsterdam is also beautiful if the weather is not soo nice, you can take our word for it!
How will we go from place “a” to place “b”?
Our guides will take you from one point to the other (unless you only have to cover for example 100 meters). You will always receive an itinerary so you will know where you have to go.
Are company trips and arrangements tax-deductible?
In general, all costs of a company trip are tax-deductible. However, only if these costs are reasonable according to the tax authorities. The treasury also states that 75% of all employees must be able to join the event. These 75% may however also consist of a certain part or division of the company.
Can you send us a brochure or price list?
Mokum Events does not use brochures or price lists. We love to involve you in designing the ideal arrangement. Custom-made trips, remember? That’s why we can’t quote fixed rates. After all, everything depends on your wishes and ideas! Our offer is a personal offer, based on all your choices.
When do we have to pay our custom-made trip or event?
We will send you an invoice in advance, which has to be paid in full, not later than 14 days after you have received the invoice at the latest.
