Brussels is the city of chocolate and lace, of frites with mayonnaise and beers, and of comics and politics. However, there is so much more to this Belgian capital… Let me take you around the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the ornate Grand Place, with its collection of medieval buildings and intricate archways. We will see the extravagant Stadhuis (cityhall), the heavily decorated baroque halls of the guilds of Brussels, and just off the square, an interesting little boy with a rather extensive collection of clothes who needs to go to the toilet. As we walk around the fairytale centre, we will discover who Everard t’ Serclaes was and why he has such a shiny monument. We will also take some time to enjoy the tranquility of the Mont des Arts and its a delightful turn of the 19th-century gardens with one of the most magnificent views of the whole city, providing ample opportunity for some remarkable postcards (weather permitting).
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.
