Vincent A.

Haarlem, Netherlands

History, art, World war II, 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'.

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.

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

A Recent Review of this guide

Vincent was excellent. The tour we requested was outside Amsterdam and a place personal to us, not one usually visited by visitors to the area. We had a wonderful time and would not have learned anywhere near the history of the area without Vincent's help. To make our day even more enjoyable, he also took us to the former fishing village of Marken.
