Become a guide

In 2012 we were the first to offer free tours in Utrecht, because we felt the tourist industry didn’t match the needs of younger travellers. And because we wished the great historical wealth of this city would be better accessible to locals and visitors alike. Some of us are history graduates, work in tourism, or are professional guides elsewhere, but running the Utrecht Free Tours has always remained our hobby! That’s why we regard tips as an optional way for guests to show their gratitude, not as a means for us to make money. This is what sets us apart from most other ‘free tour’ operators.

Our tours take around 2.5 hours. We’ll evade busy shopping streets and visit quiet, authentic parts of the old city that remain undiscovered by most visitors.

“I’ve taken now three tours with this association (all the guides are volunteers and the tours are really free, if you want you can leave a tip or a high five, your choice!). You can easily feel the passion these guys have for Utrecht and they let you enter inside its secrets in a funny and instructive way. Can’t wait for another tour!”

“The relaxed pace of the walk provides you ample time to gaze about and take in Utrecht’s lovely architecture. The well explained historical tidbits shed a new light on the beautiful city. Our guide’s passion for Utrecht was palpable and really the secret sauce which made the walk such a lovely day out.”

“It was very informative, entertaining and complex. I appreciated the pleasant atmosphere, natural speech and personal approach. If any of you hesitate about taking this tour, just don’t! You will have a great time and hear stories you can’t find in any ‘official’ tourist guide.”
