Every year I enjoy my trips to faraway destinations. The introduction to different cultures, traditions and customs has broadened my view of the world. I would like to give tourists in my own country the same experience. That is why I founded ‘StadsgidsDelft’ in 2010. My aim is to provide programs that are a good mix of history and culture. As National Guide and Cruise Director, it is a pleasure to guide tourists through the Netherlands and let them enjoy our country … even when it rains, because that is part of our culture! In my spare time I enjoy reading, music and gardening. As a vegetarian, nothing tastes better to me than the cultivated fruit and vegetables from my own garden. Hope to welcome you soon in Delft!

local guide / tour leader
LANGUAGES: NL / ENG / SPA
I studied Tourism and Spanish and worked in various positions in Tourism and as a subject teacher, study coach and internship coordinator at various colleges. Traveling is my elixir of life and I like to share my knowledge and experience about long journeys and foreign cultures with other people. Currently I supervise group tours in Africa, Latin America and walking and city trips in Europe. When I am in the Netherlands, I show people from home and abroad my “own” country and then work as a city guide in the cities of Leiden, Delft and The Hague. My other hobbies are reading, outdoor sports, running and football and I am also a passionate film and jazz fan.
LANGIAGES: NL / ENG / FR / SPA
In 2004 I actually accidentally rolled into guiding work. In the beginning with city walks through the center of Delft. But soon also guided tours in the Old & New Church and the former Army Museum. Since 2010 I work as a tour guide and museum teacher in the Museum Prinsenhof Delft, where can hear and learn about William the Silent and the Dutch Revolt. I received so many requests for guiding in other cities that I registered for the National Guide course in Amsterdam, with The Hague as my final exam assignment. Many cities, museums and attractions are now familiar terrain.

Since 2010 I am working as a local guide in beautiful Delft. What started as a hobby grown into a job as a full-time city guide. Delft is my hometown and as a real ‘Delvenaar’ I like to tell you about the history and life in the city. I like to walk, cycle, step or sail with you through the beautiful historic center of Delft. Besides Delft, I also give guided tours in The Hague and Rotterdam. My hobby is not only history, but I also like fitness and sailing, which you can do perfectly in Delfland. Hope to welcome you in my city soon.
I want to be a Guide
LANGUAGES: MINIMUM NL & ENG
We have a small, close-knit team of local guides, who can talk about their city with a lot of passion. They know how to handle different types of groups and invest in expanding their knowledge. We therefore do not offer training, because experience is a requirement and we are not looking for guides, who only quote a standard story from a walking booklet. So are you active in Delft, Rotterdam, The Hague or Leiden? Then send us an email and tell us why you want to join our team.
