Nice to let more people enjoy Amsterdam during a private tour. As a guide. | Via Dutch people and Flemish people who know French groups for example.

I would like to guide even more tours in Amsterdam in the upcoming months. :) For example, private tours in French. Because of my history as a tour guide, tourism student and guide in France, the French-speaking market is my language specialization here in Amsterdam. 

Except for individuals and groups I have indirect customers. That can also be a Dutch company that has foreign colleagues left over. Or an event agency. Of course also a DMC. Maybe a bicycle tour provider. Or a tour for the guests of a hotel. Guides for a tour operator. A colleague guide can also look for an enthusiastic guide because his or her group is too large for themselves.

In addition to tourist groups, I also like company outings, staff outings or a tour for a school or university. (And I have a lot of private tour guide experience in the city. ) The role of tour manager suits me too.

In the following paragraphs you will read about my motivation and passion, 25 years of experience in Amsterdam and Paris and the international tourism courses that I have completed and completed in France, England and the Netherlands.


 

Experience as a sporty tourist guide in Amsterdam | International training in tourism | 4 languages

Lex van Buuren, lokale toeristische gids van Lex and the City in Amsterdam-Oost, hier in kerstsfeer bij het West-Indisch huis.

Lex prior to an expat event at the West Indian House; wonderful place to be for a tourist guide. Dec-2018 

In addition to English, I also speak French and German.
I have my international tourism management diplomas in both the Netherlands (NHTV Breda) and then also in England and France . (DESS Tourisme Bac + 5, at the Université de Savoie in Chambéry.)

Experience? Yes. For the past 25 years, I have regularly been both a local private tour guide and (often sporty) guide.
“Lexperiences” ahead as a tour guide and guide in Cahors, Canet Plage, Mimizan, Nice, Saint-Jean de Luz and Paris.

I have accompanied hundreds of guided tours in Paris and in Amsterdam. (Lex has been living in both towns.)
I have been guiding in Amsterdam since 2005.
Now I give an example of a French group in Amsterdam; a whole weekend. Including accommodation that I arranged; including reviews in French and photos.

In Paris I guide and tell stories on the street since 1998. On skate, bike and walking. In the city of lights I have hired boats on the river Seine for mainly company events & teambuilding outings. For French local tourism companies, Lexposure, the online marketing part of Lex and the City, also has 2 (online) storyteller services: SEO copywriting and social media creation in Dutch.

This French family from Limoges sent Lex the photo by MMS afterwards. Accompanied by the short review below of the guided tour that started at their 5* Pestana Hotel in the Pijp and ended at the Waag on the Nieuwmarkt. (As well a place where Rembrandt played a role in history.)

Now for the review text that was attached to the picture MMS : Avec nos remerciements pour cette agréable visite. Bonne journée. Famille Mxxxx.

Amsterdam East as my area specialty |
Sporty local city guide Lex van Buuren in front of the camera in the Indische Buurt

My 2nd specialty, if you like my 2nd USP, in addition to the French language, are private guided tours in East Amsterdam. Lex van Buuren is a local; he lives in Amsterdam East,
Google also knows that, because Lex and the City is very easy to find concerning search terms with “Amsterdam East” included.
The storyteller of Amsterdam-East is telling stories on the web as well; as a blogger and for local companies being their online content marketer.

 

The 3rd Unique Selling Point as a private tour guide and storyteller in Amsterdam: footbiking / scooter tours | activity specialty

Step mee in Amsterdam-Noord met Lex and the City

Lex and the City organized the event” footbiking on heels and in suits “for an Amsterdam business club. In the Vondelpark. June-2011.

The big child with the international tourism management diploma and great love for moving in the city is fond about footbiking.

And this private tour guide has now shared that passion with many people on the street in Amsterdam. (Even with known ones.);

Biketours in Amsterdam as well.

(The 4th USP for outings in Mokum is, by the way, is a Private inline skating lesson in Amsterdam . It does not fit completely within the format of this page, so we count it halfway.
