I am Chris, theatre-actor and since a few years I love to give tours for small groups (Max 6 or private ) . I have expert knowledge about the history of windmills/castles/islands in this beautiful area close to Amsterdam. I enjoy to explain about life in Holland, back then and now. You can ask me anything you like about this beautiful area around Amsterdam. I am very open and enthousiastic and like the intimacy of a small group.

Chris was absolutely wonderful. From the bottle of water at the start of the trip, to the chocolate brownie, the windmill picture taking, to the in depth discussion! Not only did he provide friendly knowledgable information on the tour, wherever we went the locals took time to greet him and share a smile with me. A truly once in a lifetime and amazing experience.

If you want to see windmills in the Netherlands, go with Chris. His knowledge and flexibility made this tour infinitely better than a big cookie cutter tour through the same area. Cannot recommend it more.

I think once Chris heard my friend and I crack a few lewd jokes he felt more comfortable being his real self without having to be so professional, which was great for us. Didn't even really feel like he was our host. Felt more like he was a friend who just knew a lot about what we were doing. Happy to recommend. I hope our paths cross again one day.
