Vincent A.

Haarlem, Netherlands

History, World war II, van Gogh, Jewish history of Holland, city geography and polders below sealevel.

Born and raised in Amsterdam. Tours by car and walking.

Besides my 20 years experience in tourism, I am one of the few guides in the Netherlands officially qualified 'With Honor' for the only valid diploma 'National Guide'. Besides, but not less important, I am one of the few guides in The Netherlands with a vehicle that is officially registered and approved for tours. This all means that your guide, the vehicle and its passengers meet all mandatory requirements concerning quality and insurances.

I would be honoured to have the opportunity to show you the places in the Netherlands that you want to see. Therefore, please tell me what you are interested in and I will propose you a tour. This can be a tour along the highlights of Amsterdam, or a specific interest tour like Dutch art, sport, local culture, the history of Holland, the life of Anne Frank in Amsterdam, the Royal family, Vincent van Gogh, Dutch golden age painters, Jewish heritage in the Netherlands or any other theme.
On my page you can find some tour programs but all my tours can be tailormade. We can do the tour by (very good and clean) car, walking, public transport or a combination. I can pick you up from any point and bring you back to your hotel, or cruise ship when you are looking for a shore excursion during your cruise. We can do a half day tour, a full day, a multi-day tour or just a short tour of two hours.

The tours will be done with a Volkswagen Transporter 8 seater minibus from 2014. The vehicle is registered officially for commercial use, hence the blue liscence plate. Thereby you as a traveller are completely assured that your tour will be done by a vehicle (and driver) that meets all mandatory liscences concerning Insurances and quality.

It all starts with sending me a message. I look foward to meeting you!

A Recent Review of this guide

GREAT tour...very personalized and a great pace. Vincent took us to three little villages, each with its own history. We saw a nice cheese and clog making demonstration (which was not so "touristy" and the pace was exactly what we wanted. Very worthwhile and totally individualized. Highly recommended if you want a nice, intimate tour of the Dutch countryside.
