Hans L.

Amsterdam, NH, Netherlands

My main interest is to give you a wider view of Holland than that of only tulips, clogs and cheese.

As an independent guide, I do not come with any kind of 'must-see' plan.
Of course, it is important to have knowledge about the culture, the museums and history, but I prefer to show my visitors how the Dutch live.
The nicest comment I ever had about my tours was that it felt like having a friend taking you sightseeing.
My tours have been awarded with a 'Certificate of Excellence'.
