Patty has worked for major tourist attractions in Rotterdam for years. She hosted groups, took care of bookings and guided tours through the city, sometimes on a Segway! Her voice could be heard as audio guide on board of Splashtours. She switched to being an IATA agent for nearly 5 years before she decided to finally go back to her passion: Taking people on an adventure in her favorite city.
“Hi! I’m looking forward to take you to my favorite places in the city. At 33 years old, I have studied, worked and lived in Rotterdam for most of my life. Even after all this time the city never ceased to amaze me. I’m in love with the skyline, the urban feel and the art that can be found on every streetcorner.
My grandparents were born and raised in Rotterdam. I always loved listening to their stories (full of dark humor) about the history of the city. I’m grateful for their stories and I’d love to share theirs -and mine!- with you!”
