As a tourguide and ANVR-certified tourmanager, I guide bike tours, boat cruises, bus excursions, segway tours and walking tours. I have been living in the vibrant city of Amsterdam for almost 20 years, and do everything by bike. So I know almost every corner of not only my beloved city, but also the surrounding areas of Amsterdam Noord, Abcoude, IJburg en De Aker. Amsterdam is a city that makes me proud, and I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm and knowledge with visitors.
Momentarily, I cooperate with a couple of local tour companies that organize private excursions, bike tours, boat cruises and city walks in and around Amsterdam and in the provinces Noord-Holland, Zuid-Holland and in Belgium. I execute tours for Bestdam, Amsterdam Travelcafé, Get your Guide, HTG Services and Original Tours, among others. As a freelancer, I am also available for direct bookings and personalized tours. Please feel free to contact me!
After completing my Masters in Business Economics, I have worked in Marketing & Communication for many years. In 2018 I decided to follow my passion and change my career to become a tourguide since I have always been very interested in history and culture. Telling stories and showing guests the best of my beautiful city and country is what makes me happy and what I do best. I completed the Incoming Tourism Training of the renowned Dutch travel education institute IVOR, and have been trained in storytelling, presentation techniques, intercultural communication, group management and leadership.

I am currently working as a guide in the Dutch, English and German language, and I have a permit for guiding tours in the Wallen area. As a freelancer, I am registered at the Dutch Chamber of Commerce under KVK 74343408.
