About the tour

Situated deep in the heart of our tulip growing country, you can find a herd of friendly alpacas. They spend their days munching away on the lush greenery that grows all around, thanks to the fertile soil of the region. Originally from South America, alpacas are sweet and friendly creatures. Naturally curious and friendly animals, alpacas enjoy the company of people and make a great addition to a modern farm. On this tour, I will be getting up close and cuddly with the alpacas of Alpacahoeve. As I feed these mild-mannered mammals, there should hopefully be plenty of opportunities to take postcards and get to know them a little better. As they are individual creatures, with their own personalities, there is no guarantee that they’ll pose for the camera though. 🙂

Meet Stephan


Stephan is a real Dutchie, he was born in Delft (the city of Vermeer), grown up in Gouda (the cheese city), studied in Leiden (city of Rembrandt) and he lived in Rotterdam (the harbour city) before moving to our capital Amsterdam in 2006. After a career in technology as an Online Strategist, he decided to leave behind the corporate world to start guiding visitors of Amsterdam and started his own private tour agency, Amsterdam Experiences. That’s when he discovered that walking and cycling around the city with international visitors is a lot more fun than a desk job! As a guide, Stephan loves to show his virtual guests the hidden gems of Amsterdam through the eyes of a local. He has a passion for telling stories about Dutch history and culture. Stephan is very enthusiastic about the Netherlands and also guides tours in Delft, Utrecht, Rotterdam, Gouda, Leiden and Den Hague. Stephan’s tours cover a wide range of topics, whether that be sensitively tackling difficult subjects, such as Anne Frank and Jewish history of Amsterdam. However, he is equally comfortable being spontaneous, whether visiting goats in a goat farm to riding his orange flowerbike around with the flowerbike man himself. Stephan also now has tours in Belgium, covering Antwerp, Bruges and Ghent. So join him on the bike or by foot, and see the highlights of the Netherlands or even perhaps Belgium.

I love Alpaca's after going to South America to the mountains Inca territory, Bolivia and now they are here at the farm site. I joined late, but got your friends in the postcard with you enjoying it.
