About me

Although 45 years ago i was born in neighbor city Schiedam, i live and work in Rotterdam for 22 years now. Those were turbulent times, i can tell you. The basis of rebuilding of our beautiful city was finished but we were thereby not ready yet. I lived in the nineties in a city which was looking fot itself. I saw the city growing to a city were new architects a lot of modern building produced. I saw new restaurants open there doors, whith cuisines from all over the world, nice winebars and café's shoot up like mushrooms. I was happely surprised that old building and old area's were appreciated again and were repaired. This city has pulled it self out from the ashes and made so many new area's that i am often still surprised. This all makes Rotterdam an unique city in the Netherlands. A city with guts, trying new things, supporting small projects but also to be bold to pick magnificent things. A City which dares and acts!!

This is how i have seen Rotterdam grow.This is what i want to show the people who book a trip at Mik Tours. The special places, the food and the stories you don't find in books. I will let you experience this dynamic city!
