Stan

Frankfurt, Hessen, Germany

Experience Germany with a dedicated INSIDER. Walking fabulous cities, wine lover experiences, multi-city and multi-country trips.

Let's get AMAZED together!

Forget about the coach tours where you're packed in with complete strangers, you can put away the pocket guide book and the map. Let me be your personal guide who can show you places, reveal sights and sounds, engage in talks about history, society and culture or simply hang-out with. It would be my absolute pleasure.

CUSTOMIZE EVERYTHING
I love creating bespoke tours together with you. It's always a fun process to work with a client's idea and turn it into a memorable experience. Together with you we have created some truly inspiring journeys. I am very thankful for all the wonderful customer reviews over the years. If you have an idea, as crazy as it may seem, drop me a line and we'll make it work.

INSIDER CITY TOURS
Whether you want to see the most famous landmarks, the oldest parts of town or go off the beaten track, I have a tour for you. European cities are best seen on foot. If walking for three hours is a bit too much for you, we can always use the great public transport take us places.

RHINE FOCUS SHORE EXCURSIONS
I have made it my specialty area - The Rhine throughout years of study, fascination and interaction with history, customs, flavors and minds from Amsterdam, Cologne area, Koblenz area, Rudesheim, Mannheim/Heidelberg, Strasbourg and Alsace.

WINE LOVERS TOURS
It would be my utmost pleasure to reveal to you the gorgeous wines of Germany - From the crisp and sophisticated Rieslings of The Rheingau and The Mosel to the fine Pinot Noirs of Ahr.

EXPLORE EUROPE TOURS
It is another specialty of mine to organise multi-day, multi-country private, private family or small group tours in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France, Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. Let me know and we'll craft a memorable itinerary together.
- Germany, Switzerland and Austria (very popular)

From company trips, international cultural adventures for schools to a medieval castle wedding - I've got you covered! Full Travel Assistance all around Germany and The Netherlands including event/travel management, planning and coordination.

***

I have 20 years of experience working for and with travel industry leaders and I pledge to make your experience memorable. I have been guiding small groups and individuals in Europe, focusing on Germany, Netherlands/The Lower Countries and The Rhine for 10 years now.

I hope you'll choose me as your personal guide and tour organizer.

NOTE: I usually respond same day or within 24 hours but in certain cases such as weekends (Friday afternoon through Monday morning) please expect my response first working day (Monday). My time zone is GMT+1.
