I am a Dutch artist and teacher. As a genuine local I have lived in Amsterdam for more than 25 years and I know my way around in the beautiful vicinity. I still enjoy this magic every single day. Beauty is all around in the landscape, the villages, the windmills, the enchanting wooden houses and the ever changing skies. Let me share my passion for beauty, history and fun with you. As an experienced guide I offer high quality tours to small groups only. This approach ensures an intimate and optimal personal experience for all. With my good sense of humor, we'll have plenty of laughs... A guest wrote : ‘’WONDERFUL experience!!! Herman’s tour rates 10 gold stars! He is personable, knowledgeable and patient.

Where you'll be
De Zaanse Schans will take us back to the times when all things were simple, pure and untouched. It is the Holland the way it used to be, with its many windmills and romantic wooden houses. It is the Holland we know from the famous Dutch 17th century painters. We will get in touch with this past and get a feel for the polder landscape, the many dikes and the magnificent Dutch skies. And most of all... We will get an impression to last...
