Wilfred P.

Amsterdam, North holland, Netherlands

Hi, I am Wilfred. I am living on a houseboat in Amsterdam and I love this city.

It is a world city and a small place together. It is a metropolis but it doesn't have a million people. Everything is within bicycle distance. Water is everywhere. It is a city to discover by foot or by boat. Its history has everything to do with the sea and its nautical past is amazing. That's what fascinates me about Amsterdam.

I finished my studies as Master of Architecture at Delft University of Technology in 1995 and started to work in the Netherlands as a building manager.

After 10 years working in the Netherlands, I chose to follow my heart and started to work as a tour leader with Dutch tour groups in Asia and Central America. In 2015 I returned home and started to work as a local guide in Amsterdam and the Netherlands, next to my work as a tour leader.

Because of my background in Architecture and my love for Amsterdam I like to show my city through the eyes of an architect. I love to tell you the real story.
