About myself

I'm a tour guide with a great drive to extend my knowledge in order to offer you the best. I fulfill your wishes and I organize interesting tours for small groups up to 6 people. 

You get a highly customized tour with all the information you need to make your day trip succesfull. Book with me and you get a well specified program with a time schedule. You know exactly what to expect, with the prices. All the prices mentioned are prices for groups, VAT included.  

Being a little bit older as a guide has many advantages. I'm familiar with a lot of common things in Holland, like taxes, social life, Dutch habits, farming, economics, stock exchange, nature conservation etc. Just general information. And I am specialized in watermanagement (including mills, polders, dikes, lakes, floods etc.) and it has my great interest. I inform you about (the history) of mills, pumping stations, how a dike is built, why the sails of a mill turn the way they do, how many water levels a polder has, etc.

My other great interest is Dutch and Amsterdam history. You learn why the mills were so important for Holland, how long it took 400 years ago to sail to Batavia (=Jakarta) and which were the dangers. You learn about the the Dutch fleet, the herring fishing and the trade on the Baltic States and Russia, which made us rich. And you learn about religion and how important that was for the Dutch independance.
