What you can expect

Hello there! My name is Roelof and I have been a tour guide in cities like Berlin, Warsaw, Moscow and Sint Petersburg. Now I am ready to show you the Netherlands!

I would love to tell you the story of Dutch history and the windmills as the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in a completely private tour which we can personalize according to your wishes.

See the typical Dutch countryside houses and explore the city, while I'm giving you local insights. After wandering around this beautiful village, you'll have the opportunity to step inside a factory and see a local shoemaker crafting them.

As a professional photographer I will show you how to make the most beautiful pictures of the Dutch scenery like Rembrandt and Vermeer did. I'll bring my camera along and send a selection of pictures via WeTransfer after editing!

Windmills are one of the most iconic things when talking about The Netherlands, so why not see them yourself? I'll make sure to share lots of historical facts and fun Dutch stories while we're there. Are you ready?

This tour is extendable with other high lights of Dutch towns, like Volendam, Delft, The Haque and Rotterdam. Personalize your own favourite tour.
