Peter, private guide for Unique Tours Factory

Born in Rotterdam, I lived in Amsterdam with my family between 2 and 12 years old, moving then to Aalsmeer, the flower-capital of Holland where the Floriculture is very developed. As an important part of my family was involved in the flower-industry, it was not a coincidence that I went to horticultural school and horticultural college. After college I left Holland to live in England for 6 months to work in floriculture. I also worked and lived in France for 2 months. When I came back to Holland, I started working at a breeding-company in Gerbera-cut flowers and, as a hobby, I started breeding cut flower-roses. After a few years, I started my own company specializing in Gerbera-cut flowers and developed many well-known new varieties. Many years later, I decided to change my career a little, driving tourists to floricultural destinations amongst other destinations, before I started my own business guiding visitors through Holland's booming floriculture in flower auctions and flower parks such as Keukenhof. I also organise tours to some small old towns like Marken, Volendam, and Edam, and to some cheese markets. I always try to give my guests a good and enjoyable time as most of them are in Holland just for a few days and want to have a memorable experience.
