Hilversum, in the province of North Holland, is situated 20 KM to the southeast of Amsterdam. I can take you there in my car seating 3 to 4 adults. Hilversum boasts good examples of town planning, neighborhoods full of villas, great school buildings and a fabulous town hall designed by Dudok. During a very costly renovation, each and every outside brick of this town hall has been replaced. The original yellow bricks from the IJssel river turned out not to be weatherproof.

Dudok, student of the famous architect Berlage, has worked here in Hilversum for many decades in the city planning office. His architectural imprint is all over. A dozen excellent school buildings are still around and the villa areas are also breathtaking. City walk can be combined with a visit to the aan het Pinetum, the secons modt important collection of pine trees in the world (the prime one is in Kew gardens, England). The Pinetum is open Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.

As an art historian based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, I can meet you in Hilversum for a personalized guided tours of art museums and the historic center. Together we will experience the beauty and history and we will visit enclosed courtyards, called 'hofjes' mostly for the benefit of the old age men and women.

Enjoy yourself and learn about history while strolling and discussing the country's history, art and culture. In doing so, we may touch many bases - spanning not only fine art and architecture but also the city's history and current social issues. You may also arrange this VIP treatment for business contacts or friends. Our cultural tour organisation office will take care of a unique and memorable experience.

As a high-level international tour guide, I offer pleasant tailor-made private tours for small groups. Having an academic background in Art History and teaching, my presentation is both in-depth and very communicative, thus open to a wide audience. I prefer to guide small and select groups to museum visits and to walks...
