My name is Edwin van den Berg. Having studied history, which has always remained a great passion of mine. Working as a tour guide since 2012, I have been able to share this passion with many guests both foreign and Dutch. I live in Amersfoort, a modern city with a medieval heart in the centre of the Netherlands but my guidework extends to many parts of the country, including its biggest cities, like Amsterdam. There’s a lot of beautiful or intriguing things -historical and otherwise- in the landscape and cities of our country that I would like to show you and tell you about!
