"Amsterdam Underground has shown me a side of Amsterdam that you normally do not know about".

Our Mission

Amsterdam Underground is a cooperative. The guides are all owners and earn their income with their work. The guides often had to live as homeless and deal with the consequences of substance use. In these difficult circumstances they have developed knowledge and skills that they now use positively while guiding the city walks. Through their own experiences, the guides give an insight into the lives of people with a bit differently life path. The walk provides more understanding for (ex) addicts and fights the stigma that they experience on a daily basis. The work as a guide contributes to self-confidence, self-esteem and increasing self-reliance.

The Regenboog Groep (Rainbow)

Amsterdam Underground is an initiative of De Regenboog Groep. De Regenboog Groep wants Amsterdam to be a place where everyone feels at home. De Regenboog encourages everyone who wants to get the best out of themselves. Whether you have psychological problems, are homeless, use drugs or have debts.
