What you'll do

We're going to walk trough the historical centre of Gouda. I will show you the most interesting spots and tell you all I know about the monumental buildings, the people and the history of the city. I don't sugarcoat things, so I will not only tell you about the beautiful but also about the bad or weird things that happened here. This tour is also very beautiful in the evening.

Meet your host, Germien

I am Foor Broer, a local and history buff. My family has lived here since the 1600's and I know Gouda like the palm of my hand. I am told I'm a pretty good story teller with a decent sense of humour. My goal is to show you how Gouda’s unique history shaped this great city, as well as to give you a personal feel for the place, the way only a local can.

Where you'll be

I'll plan a route that will show you the city as it really is, and I'll take you to all the right places and people. If you have any specific questions or interests, I am flexible and can alter the tour. No prior knowledge of the Netherlands or Gouda is required. If you have any specific interests, just tell me and I'll try to customize your tour. My goal is to give you the best, and most personal experience possible.

This local guide will give you the non-conventionnal tour of Gouda. His tour is sprinkled with personal anecdote and stories about Gouda that usual touring company will likely hide, out of pride. He is lovely and joyful, and his passion for the city is contagious. I think this kind of tour is what Airbnb experience is made for.

Met zijn tweeen een erg leuke stadswandeling gehad. Wat wist de gids veel te vertellen over Gouda! Leuke weetjes, achtergronden en historische information. Leuke plekjes gezien in Gouda. De tijd was zo om. Aanrader!

Geweldige tour door de straatjes rondom het centrale plein. Niet een ingestudeerd stukje maar echt een gepassioneerd verhaal. 👍🏻 Ik had het ‘lastminute’ geboekt en niet goed gelezen en per abuis verkeerde tijdslot aangeklikt. Germien heeft het toen echt last minute voor ons opgelost: super service! We kregen toch de tour op het tijdslot wat we bedoeld hadden.

Great to experience Gouda with a local whose love of the town and historical qualifications were much to the fore throughout the tour.

We had a great tour through Gouda with Foor! He was on time and waited a couple of minutes before we arrived. Foor’s English was perfect and he cracked up a few good jokes here and there. We learned stuff about Gouda which we did not know before and got ourselves nice cheese to remember the day. He also personalized his tour with an artistic touch, because my fiancé is an artist. Which made is special and unique. Thanks Foor for a wonderful tour and to show my American fiancé what Gouda is all about!
