I am passionate about showing you our beautiful country and I love to share my knowledge about the Netherlands with you. If you are looking for a private guide who offers private tours in Amsterdam, the Dutch countryside or to other cities in the Netherlands and Belgium, then please contact me. I would be more than happy to help!
Come and join me on one of my tours. You can choose from my general tours below or ask me to create YOUR OWN HOLLAND EXPERIENCE, a customized tour based on your own wishes just for your own group.
The listed tours do start in Amsterdam but all cities, airports (e. g. Schiphol) and seaports (e. g. Rotterdam, IJmuiden) in the Netherlands can be the starting point of our tour.
Transfers to/from Belgium combined with tours to Antwerp, Bruges and/or Brussels are possible too.
If you need a customized tour than please send me a message with the requested date, number of guests and your wishes regarding the tour.
See the Netherlands, a very modern country built on the rich heritage of the 17th century. Admire Amsterdam, the beautiful and cosmopolitan capital of this country with its World Heritage city center full of romantic canals and gable houses, fancy shops and markets, nice restaurants, world famous museums and modern architecture.
Visit The Hague, the residence of the Royal family and governmental institutions with its beautiful beaches. Discover Rotterdam, main port of Europe with its endless docks and waterways. Stroll through charming Delft, city of the House of Orange, Vermeer and Delft's blue pottery. Explore the countryside with its canals, windmills and neat villages, see man made polders and learn how impressive waterworks protect the low land. Don't miss the Keukenhof, a spring garden with an explosion of tulips from March to May.
This little country is packed with things to do and places to go. There is so much more still to discover!

A Recent Review of this guide
Thank you Frank for the wonderful tour of Amsterdam. It was one of the best in all our travels of Europe. You were very informative about the historical significance of the various areas we visited and about the culture of each section and you even cracked a few jokes along the way. You were very kind, friendly, considerate and fun to be with. It was a very leisurely tour and at a great pace for us, that made it even more enjoyable. Thank you for a fantastic tour and I highly recommend your services.
