I emigrated to New York City from The Netherlands in my early 20's.  I have worked on large cruise ships, such as Royal Viking, Costa and Paquet Lines as an associate cruise director.  In the early years of my residency in America, I worked as a flight purser for Northwest Orient Airlines flying out of Seattle to Tokyo, Manilla, Seoul and Saigon.

Travel has always been a big part of my life and I am still and avid traveler.  I know how important it is to find the right tour guide.  I would love the opportunity to make your stay in New York special. 

Tours & Services Offered

Special Tours: 

I also do tours in English (of course), French, Flemish and German.

I conduct tours to New York's environs.  My knowledge of the Hudson River Valley, Lake Waramaug, Litchfield Area in Connecticut, Sands Point, Sea Cliff on the North Shore of Long Island and the Hamptons and Shelter Island on the Eastern End of Long Island is plentiful and have made many tourists' holiday more fulfilling.  These excursions out of New York, with their rich history and local color, take visitors to places not seen by most tourists.
