I have been working as a tour guide for small groups in Rotterdam for years. It is my passion and enthusiasm for my home town that I would like to share with my guests.
I studied political science and history at Erasmus University in Rotterdam. My interests and expertise cover a wide range of subjects, but architecture, history, art and sports are my favorites.
In addition to showing the most famous sights, I like to wander off the beaten track and show the visitor lesser known and surprising spots and aspects of the city. I am well traveled and have seen a lot of the world already. My broad experience in dealing with both Dutch and international guests will help me in making your visit a memorable one.
Rotterdam is close to both Delft and the Hague. Both these historic Dutch cities can be included in a longer tour.
My tours can be carried out in English, German, French, Swedish or Dutch. The set up of my tours is flexible and can be customized to meet your needs and interests as much as possible. When your group is larger than the indicated maximum for a specific tour this can be customized as well. Please let me know.
A Recent Review of this guide
Our visit to Kinderdijk with Eddy was highly informative. We learned about the history and function of the site and about the operation of the local water boards which are unique to the Netherlands. Only one windmill was open because of maintenance activities. We were fortunate that the Miller joined us and added to our visit. I have no doubt that the additional information the gained will be incorporated into Eddy's future tours. Eddy is an excellent tour guide and I highly recommend him.
