Private tour guide Matthijs

Matthijs H.

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Thanks for looking at my public profile! My name is Matthijs (the Dutch version of Matthew).

I am 37 year old and I have a wife and a 2 year old daughter, Emma.

For 8 years I have lived in Amsterdam and I have been showing people around in Amsterdam for my profession. Last year we moved to Rotterdam, my hometown. I love these to biggest cities of the Netherlands.

I originally studied to be a teacher at primary school. I love educating and telling stories. But my strongest point is to connect with people. I especially love families with children. It makes me happy to make people feel comfortable and see them enjoy their tours. So please feel free to ask anything you want.

I can take you with my car (fits 3 passengers) anywhere you like. Another strong point of my tours is that I like headlines with an eye for detail. Experience has taught me to point out the things that are interesting to people in a way they feel enriched. More than just a guide I see myself as a host.

I really look forward to meeting you in Holland!

A Recent Review of this guide

Matthijs is a gem, he took my daughter and I for a cycle tour around Amsterdam, and it was superb, he is knowledgeable and considerate and I will not hesitate to tour with him again. If you are considering Amsterdam, you will also find that Matthijs has some serious added value when (if) you can get him to tell you about his day job. Thank you Matthijs, we sincerely appreciated your time and enthusiasm.
