Discover the fascinating story of Haarlem in a relaxed small group with a local native English speaking guide. Haarlem has a long and colourful history. Originally famous for Beer, Linen and Tulips, the city has been repeatedly besieged, fought over, burnt down and rebuilt many times over. This tour has a little bit of everything from Art and Architecture, Life, Death and High Culture in Late Medieval and Renaissance times. The tour will also help you to make the most of your time in Haarlem with sightseeing tips, the best things to do and places to eat pointed out along the way. We finish the tour at a beautiful rooftop terrace or if everyone fancies it a local craft brewery depending on the mood. If you are going elsewhere in the Low Countries after visiting Haarlem you will enjoy it much more after taking this tour as you will be able to recognise the famous architecture styles, know what the buildings were for and a little more about the people behind them.
