 Gerben

Hey, I’m Gerben and I would love to show you around in Utrecht!

Utrecht is a very beautiful place, it is one of the biggest cities in the Netherlands. Yet it is a lot quieter than Amsterdam. I was born in the east of the Netherlands, but I moved here because of my studies. I never regretted this decision; it is a wonderful city with a rich history. In Utrecht you will never be bored.

I hope you will join me in one of my tours around Utrecht, and maybe you will fall in love with this great city as well. In my opinion following a free walking tour is the best way to discover a city. Even as a local, you can learn a lot from the tours I give.

 Tim

When I studied I choose Utrecht as my student town. Utrecht is a great city for students it has lots of bars, festivals and other options for students. I have moved out of Utrecht afterward bud am still always in love with the city.

I became a tour guide in Utrecht two years ago and am one of the first guides of Free Walking tour Utrecht. I really love to show people around Utrecht because of the unique stories that this town has.

Also, a local guide is a great way to discover the many hidden gems this town has. A lot of people make a one-day trip to Utrecht witch I think is not enough there is a way to mutch to discover. Utrecht is a very Dutch town. Way more as for example Amsterdam.

 Froukje

Dear all, My name is Froukje. Froukje is probably the most Dutch name you will hear during your stay here in the Netherlands! Originally my name comes from the North, but I was raised in a town in between Amsterdam and Utrecht. I fell in love with Utrecht and I decided Utrecht was going to be the city, where I wanted to study law. I have now been living here for a few years and I am still very enthusiastic about all the nice courts and squares that Utrecht has to offer. I would love to tell you stories about some of the events that took place in Utrecht and some crazy things that happened here.

After spending the full afternoon with me, hopefully, you will start loving Utrecht as much as I do!
