See the best of Haarlem with your own private art historian, private tour


Haarlem is the capital of the Province of North Holland and its historic buildings, museums and the best shops and restaurants in the area are a joy to visit. Since it was the centre of the Tulip Mania the city bears the nickname 'Bloemenstad' (flower city).

Come and see Haarlem with me and visit the Frans Hals Museum or the Teyler's museum, the oldest museum of the Netherlands. We can study the St. Bavo Cathedral or wander around in one of the many 'hofjes'; almshouses built around courtyards.

We can combine this visit with a canal cruise, a visit to the Corrie ten Boom House and/or the Zaanse Schans windmills.

PLEASE NOTE: all my tours are CUSTOM MADE. We can add more hours (or do a shorter tour), private transportation, extra places to visit, whatever you would like to see, eat, or do. Please tell me your preferences and I'll prepare the perfect tour for you.

I'm a Private Guide that offers Private tours.

IT'S YOUR TOUR!!

Don't just follow just any guide; have your own private art historian!!!

A Recent Review of this tour

Day 3 and again Walda met me on the dot, to take me off to Haarlem for a walking tour with explanations and historical detail ,on the go then visited the Frans Hals Museum where Walda continued to educate. We drove in the country and visited old windmills, still in use, in a very pretty village of historic wood houses. Drove along dykes and through very pretty villages and wound our way back to Amsterdam. I enjoyed full days, with good soup lunches and coffee and treats and learned a lot from Walda. JS
