Your private guide meets you at your hotel, river cruise ship, or the Hoorn train station at either 10am or 2pm.
Begin your walking tour with your private guide and group, stepping back in time to the 17th century, the Dutch Golden Age when Holland was one of the world's most influential countries.
As you stroll past the lively shopping street and harbor, hear how native-born Jan Pietersz Coen founded the Indonesian city Batavia (now Jakarta). Pass landmarks including the Main Tower, Saint John Hospice (touch the facade for good luck), and visit the love chapel — a hidden place where a Catholic and Protestant couple could be married at a time when that was forbidden.
Your guide also shares favorite restaurants, activities, shops, and tips for public transport that contribute to your visit to Hoorn.
