Electric cars wanted for high-end tourism in Amsterdam

The 5 most luxurious hotels of Amsterdam house guests that are sometimes interested in private tours by car through the city. Driving around, in a luxurious car interior while looking at the sites.

Normally the hotels hire limousine services for this. The downside of these car-rides are that the guides aren't really involved in the historical, cultural and social fabric of the city ànd the car itself is never electric, making this more polluting than it should be.

Amsterdam Odyssey stands for a different kind of tourism: sustainable, local and meaningful. Therefor we never do these kind of car-ride excursions.

But, what if.... we could partner up with a company that promotes the use of electric cars, offering high-end chauffeured electric cars for us to use as a means of transport? We work together with Taxi Electric off course, but we are hoping to get in touch with other companies as well, maybe to help them in a start-up phase or to promote a new business model. To get in touch, please send an email to tours@amsterdamodyssey.com

@hermanvandenbosch2 het mooie is dat wij 99% van de tijd lopen, met soms een elektrisch bootje erbij, soms op de fiets. De wegen zijn inderdaad vol, een auto is onzinnig in Amsterdam. Maar: feit is dat sommige high-end touristen ècht in een auto door de stad willen touren. Als die in een elektrische auto klimmen scheelt dat inderdaad géén blik op de weg maar wel fijnstof.

Alexandra Belicova en Fred Cats, thank you for your suggestions! We have to keep the gap between the limousine the guests are used to and the electric alternative so small that even Donald Trump would take the leap ;)

Wouldn't the best solution be small but convenient boats in combination with some walking? It appears to me that Amsterdam city roads are more then crowded.

Any chance scooters would work? Felyx is a startup that lets people rent electric scooters to commute around Amsterdam.

Hi Fred, Thanks for your comment, but no, this market requires another type of vehicle. Something comparable to a limousine.

@hannekevroegindeweij Are you interested in Segway?
