Meet Lee

Lee

Lee is a Dutch-Canadian who's worked as a professional guide and boat captain since 2009. Originally trained as a ballet dancer, she left the stage to travel the world, having visited over 100 countries so far, dancing, teaching and volunteering along the way. Among her most memorable experience was an extended tour through North Korea! As much as she loves exploring different cultures around the globe, she's just as happy at home in her favourite city, and can't wait to share with Heygoers all the reasons why Amsterdam is so amazing! Having joined countless tours along her travels and having led over 3,500 tours of her own, Lee has learned what makes a tour unforgettable . Her tours are carefully researched and not only cover detailed Dutch history and culture, but also fun facts, hidden gems, and tips on where to find the best shops, markets and food!

My very first tour, Lee was a treat to listen to her accounts of the history in Amsterdam. I would definitely do another tour with Lee!

Lee focussed on the impact of the Germans on Amsterdam during WWII and I learned horrible facts about the treatment of citizens I never knew about. She gave us titles of books to read about the Dutch resistance. While she spoke we viewed the streets and buildings she walked by and she showed photos from the war to illustrate what we were looking at. It was a very memorable tour. I will definitely look for her other tours.
