Other ways to help you discover the Netherlands.
A bicycle trip and a guided walk remain the most thorough ways to see for yourself what makes this country special. But for an introduction to Dutch history and culture, there are more possibilities.
- Educational programmes..
More day programs for groups or schools. Content flexible.
See page Educational.
- Lecture or presentation.
Especially at the beginning of your stay, an introduction to the history and culture of the Netherlands can be very valuable. It will most certainly put your visit in a new perspective. And it is of course also an information and planning opportunity.
Can take place informally over a drink in or somewhere near your accommodation. Count about 1 ½ - 2 hours.
See page Lecture.
- Historical Research.
for the media, film, documentary, TV. Publications, also content for tourism.
See page Research.
- Layover - Stopover.
If you have a stopover or layover of a couple of hours at Schiphol Amsterdam, more is possible than you may think.
See page Layover - Stopover.
Cook your own traditional or historical Dutch meal. And eat it.
See page Cooking and Baking.
Introduction to the Netherlands for people who plan to stay here longer.

If you have one or two simple questions in my field, that's for free. Don't hesitate to send a mail.
Also, there's the small informative free newsletter I make occasionally. If you send me your mail address, I'll gladly put you on the mailing list.
For more extensive information, travel preparation and advice, I can help you as well, and charge the time it takes me by the hour.
This also applies to research for travel programs, trade and business.
Keep the tips and resources sections of this website in mind too. New pages are regularly added, so a visit now and then may be rewarding.
- Private car.
For some destinations, cycling or walking and public transport may not be so practical.
See examples in Private car tours.
In those cases inviting you for a ride in my private car (max 4 passengers) may be an option. NOT as some form of taxi service, but with a guided tour and as a courtesy.
Also, if your cycling or walking possibilities are limited, my car could be a part of the solution. But NOT for visiting the centre of Amsterdam or other major towns. Extremely unpractical, also because of parking problems.
All options above are bound to be different and specific. So please send a mail with your wishes, and I'll make you a proposal.
