We're going to walk trough the historical centre of Gouda. I will show you the most interesting spots and tell you all I know about the monumental buildings, the people and the history of the city. I don't sugarcoat things, so I will not only tell you about the beautiful but also about the bad or weird things that happened here. This tour is also very beautiful in the evening.
I am Foor Broer, a local and history buff. My family has lived here since the 1600's and I know Gouda like the palm of my hand. I am told I'm a pretty good story teller with a decent sense of humour. My goal is to show you how Gouda’s unique history shaped this great city, as well as to give you a personal feel for the place, the way only a local can.
I'll plan a route that will show you the city as it really is, and I'll take you to all the right places and people. If you have any specific questions or interests, I am flexible and can alter the tour. No prior knowledge of the Netherlands or Gouda is required. If you have any specific interests, just tell me and I'll try to customize your tour. My goal is to give you the best, and most personal experience possible.
A bottle of water and an umbrella if it is rainy. I also recomend proper walking shoes and advise against heels, since the streets are rarely flat and level. shoes and advise against heels, since the streets are rarely flat and leve
