Ingrid Marsman and her team of local experts, take you back in time. Discover history, get in touch with the Dutch and hear annecdotes. Ingrid started as a local guide and tour leader after finishing the University for Tourism. Over the years, she has visited the most beautiful places on earth with her groups. But Amsterdam and the Zaanse Schans stole her heart. 15 years ago she started to combine guiding with theatre to make your visit an unforgettable experience. As princess Beatrix, Rembrandt’s wife, auntie Sjaan from the Jordaan, a brothel owner of the Golden Age and a Mayor’s wife from Westzaan she moulds her guide stories into entertaining theatre plays, with the Dutch villages as the decor.
She lives at the Zaanse Schans, in her dream house, where she invites her groups for a tour inside her Mayor’s Mansion.
