Get to know the person behind the tour

Eric N.

Leiden, ZH, Netherlands

Hi, I am Eric. Born (1965) and raised in the western coastal region of the Netherlands, historically named "Holland".

So you have decided to come to the Netherlands and you want your visit to be nothing less than an unforgettable experience?
You have come to the right person! An experienced knowledgeable traveler myself, with a passion for history, arts, architecture and great food, I will be delighted and honoured to be your private guide and driver.

Whether you have just a few hours 'stop-over time', a full day or even several days at your disposal, I will be happy to prepare a fully tailor made itinerary for you in order to make your stay memorable. Have a look at my various tours, get inspired and let me know your specific wishes!

Strolling through the streets of old towns and cities with their ancient churches, townhalls, monumental houses and marketplaces. Where time seems to have stand still for centuries.

Going from city to city we will, wherever possible, be driving through the Dutch countryside, through green meadows and over winding river dikes: To your left, a few meters below the road, breathtaking views over the lowland 'polders' populated by grazing cattle, to your right the lazy wide river…We will see old farmhouses, windmills, canals, old locks and ditches, proof of the dutchmen's watermanagement skills throughout the ages.

On the horizon we can already see the looming contours of yet another interesting old city which may be our next stop…!

You will see, feel, experience Holland in it's pure essence. We will go off the beaten path. To experience the real Netherlands and see the things that can't be seen when travelling on a tour bus.

Please note I offer maximum flexibility in all my tours. If, for any reason, you wish to change program, this is always possible. Even during the day itself. This is your tour!

Transportation in a premium luxury sedan is included in all tour prices. You will travel in sheer comfort in my airconditioned Lexus LS460. In your own pace, with plenty of time to absorb the overwhelming and fascinating beauty of the Netherlands. For groups of 4-8 passengers I can rent a Mercedes van at additional charge. Please contact me for a quotation.

I can hardly wait to be at your service!


A Recent Review of this guide

Eric was an outstanding guide. We communicated in advance so he was aware of my mom's age (88) and mobility issues. He designed a 4-hr tour to accommodate her abilities and limitations, and she told him it was "perfect". Especially interesting was a short visit to the apartment building where Anne Frank lived with her family before they went into hiding. And a drive out to the countryside to see the windmills was delightful and so informative. Eric is a wonderful guide; his love of Amsterdam is evident
