Cycling through Groningen with Alexander was perfect.

Our guide, Alexander, did an incredible job. He knew the city inside and out and happily honored our request to see neighborhoods instead of tourist spots. This was Alexander’s first tour but he seemed like a well seasoned pro. He was gracious, polite, open to requests, and extremely easy going. He knew local history and how the city functioned and easily navigated us around while offering insights and anecdotes about life in Groningen. My wife and I are considering retiring in The Netherlands and seeing how and where people live in Groningen was very important to me during this tour. During our two hours together, Alexander showed us multiple neighborhoods as well as beautiful parks and lovely views of the city. It was definitely time well spent. If we do retire in The Netherlands, and choose Groningen as our destination, Alexander’s tour will have played a huge part in the choice we made.

We took a wonderful walk through Groningen with Celine. We especially liked that you have reported shortly before to ask for our requests. The tour did not design them in the form that the tourist highlights were ticked off, but we experienced many small hidden places garnished with interesting facts, nice story and anecdotes. In the process, historical, cultural and private matters were combined in a pleasant way. In the end, we had a very interesting conversation about differences and differences between Dutch, Germans and Swiss - Celine is Swiss. Likewise, we imagine such an offer. Thank you so much!

Meine Tour in Groningen war super und empfehlenswert. Obwohl ich die Stadt schon kannte hat mir Leonard, mein guide, noch neue für mich unbekannte Seiten Groningens gezeigt. So habe ich jetzt auch die Universität Groningens gesehen, umgeben von tollen Cafés, die wir für eine Pause nutzten. Er war sehr gut vorbereitet und ging auf meinen Wunsch mehr über die künstlerische Gestaltung des Bahnhofes zu erfahren ein. Die Führung war in einem sehr guten Englisch. Ich kann sie absolut weiterempfehlen.
