I have walked with guests for over 200 tours in my favorite city. I walk in any kind of weather but I can tell you all over a hot cup of coffee to wait out the rain if we choose to. I made sure that I know a lot about the history and the cultures that live in Amsterdam. I can tell you about daily life, and the mentality of Amsterdammers but I am willing to take you to The Hague or Utrecht and tell you about life and history there too. I have accompanied guests to visit museums and take canal rides on many boat tour. I'm great with young kids on family trips and I know the best places to eat. It's pretty much like meeting up with a friend that knows her way around while you get to see all you want to see while you are in the Netherlands. I do predefined tours if you choose them but I am always up for customizing to your wishes so you will get to experience the best bits of your bucket list.
A Recent Review of this guide
Louke was great! She offered a variety of food samples to get a taste of traditional Dutch seafood, dessert/snacks, as well as dishes from former Dutch colonies and current immigrant communities. With coffee, to boot! My husband, my sister, and my cousin-in-law all had a great time. It was our first time in Amsterdam. Much love from the US and Canada!
I have the certificate of the city of Amsterdam for guiding tours with 4-20 persons in the Red Light District. I usually walk with no more than 4 guests but I feel it is better to be prepared.
