Private Tour Guide Recommendations, London, Paris, Amsterdam

I am traveling to London, Paris and Amsterdam late this year and would like a recommendation for a private tour guide in each city.

Thank you

I would check your hotel concierge in each city. They usually have recommendations of excellent local guides.

Is Michael Osman still guiding in Paris?
If so, he's excellent. We had him 2003.

I think that in France, most of the tour guides are working in supermarkets now or delivering meals with Deliveroo or one of the other companies. Will it be possible to lure them back from these dream jobs?

If you want to stop over in Antwerp on your way to Amsterdam I'd be happy to show you around. My fees are very reasonable
And there are some fantastic restaurants waiting to open, or opened just before the pandemic. I'll wave my fee for lunch at Zilte or Le Pristine..

More details please -- what are you actually looking for? Are you just looking for guides to take you around for a day, or do you want someone to organize all your activities? Is this for a group or just you? What sort of budget?

There are great walking tours, most museums and major sites have in-house free or inexpensive tours, and all three cities are definitely easy to do on your own
