Hi, I am Chris :-) Besides being a theater-actor, I have developed a big passion passion for Dutch History, which has grown over the years, and love to share that with you. It’s amazing to realize how deceptive simple things from the 16th century have shaped the whole history of Holland! I have been giving private tours for over 5 years now and my extensive knowledge about this wonderful historic 17th Century little village of Zaanse Schans is still expanding. And love to bring you to Marken Fisherman’s Island and Amsterdam Castle Muiderslot, which can be a nice addition to the tour. I am a very open, enthusiastic guide and always try to make you feel as comfortable as possible. This is a family friendly tour for ages 6 and up. If you are looking for an intimate and personal tour, I wanna be your Dutchman ;-).
