Introducing GANYC guide Pim Zeegers of his own company: Pim Philip Experiences
What types of tours do you offer? (Walking, Biking, Bus, etc...) Could you describe them for us?
I offer tours on foot, by bike, rollerskates, subway, bus, whatever you want.
Do you offer Niche Tours? (Knitting, Food Tours, etc) If so could you describe them for us a little bit.
My niche is 'off the beaten path' and I love to connect my clients to local people and businesses in the city. From street art and artists, urban farms, interesting businesses, cool places. Visit places and have a look behind the scenes. I can do this for a private tour but I also set it up for businesses and create custom programs in their field of business. Inspirational journeys or retail safaris, you name it. And in the mix I combine it with the history of NYC and it's landmarks. I organize this in both Brooklyn as Manhattan.
What time of year would you consider your busy season?
I have been featured in an inflight magazine Holland Herald (KLM) september last year: LINK
Besides that I host videos for a company called Hatched. The videos are called First Look and we visit restaurants, bars, coffee places, new businesses that just opened their doors in NYC. It's a great way for me to be in the know about openings in NYC and I love to spread the news afterwards. If you want to check out some videos, check out the YouTube channel of Hatched.
Some Dutch celebrities that most readers will not know. But even Dutch Celebs get ambushed here! I think it's very important is to stay discreet in these cases.
