She has been working as a professional Amsterdam guide and boat captain since 2009, and loves to share her knowledge of Dutch history, fun anecdotes, and importantly, of where the best food is!

Lee has been guiding since Aug 2009

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.
