Tour Reviews

  • Utrecht is a really nice city but this walking tour really made it interesting. They tell you about old history and new stories as well. It was a nice way of getting to see some other parts in the city you might not walk to if you are only there on a short visit. Plus it’s free and the tour guides are really enthusiastic about what they do.

  • Great way to see and learn about the city! We came with a group of 10, which wasn’t a problem at all. Very informative with a little humour, one of the best free tours so far 🙂

Tour Guide

For a South American living in The Netherlands for 8 years, came to Utrecht not knowing what to expect and the result was this magical city that keeps surprising me with its pretty spots, small alleys, gorgeous architecture and very rich history… It’s hard not to fall in love.

I want to share my love for this city with the Free Walking Tours and walk visitors from all over, tell great stories and a much of the Dutch Culture in one of its prettiest places: Utrecht.

Love meeting people and share experiences with travellers and as one I’ve been a huge fan of this type of “tip based” tours because is my way to start my trip to new (and already known) places when I visit, first activity: find this walking tours and get lost.

Originally form Harderwijk, and when I had the chance I directly chose to study in Utrecht. I fell in love with the city! There is so much to tell, the long history, the biking culture, Nijntje or Miffy, and a lot more great stories and that all combined with the bursting nightlife of this student capital from the Netherlands. Utrecht is my town!
Utrecht is also great for a Free walking tour, because of all history and the small hidden gems that are around the city centre. The wharf cellars (will explain at the tour) and the best and small bars that you can only find with a local friend.

Join me on your next visit to Utrecht and I will share my love for the city with you!

So go ahead book a tour and we will discover de best sights and stories of, Utrecht!

Tour Guide

I grew up in a small town called Ermelo which is 30 min. from Utrecht, when I went to college I decided to live in Utrecht and I forgot to leave. About 12 years later I gained a lot of knowledge about Utrecht and would love to take you on a tour! I can show you the canals, wharfcellars and ofcourse the famous domtower. Ofcourse experiencing the history of the city is important but I would also show you where you can get the best cheese, rent a canoe and how we locals spend our time in this beautifull city!
