Did you know that the tower of the Grote Kerk is leaner than the tower of Pisa? And that Vincent van Gogh lived in Dordrecht for a while? Enthusiastic guides surprise visitors from outside the city as well as Dordrecht residents with the juiciest stories and most beautiful spots during their city walks. Patricia Hoornaar, who is responsible at Dordrecht Marketing & Partners for group day trips and city walks, can recommend it to anyone to come along for a walk.
A world opens up for you.
The one-and-a-half-hour entry walks start and end at the VVV tourist information office at Spuiboulevard 99. Because of Corona, the walks have been halted for a long time. They only restarted in July. Individual visitors can participate in the walks from Wednesday to Sunday. This is possible from as little as € 6 per person. See the Walking Tours Dordrecht page for information and reservations. Upon return, the staff behind the counter often receive immediate feedback on the walk. "We often hear that people didn't expect it to be so much fun."
Do you already have a group and do you want to discover Dordrecht in a special way? Then you can also contact Patricia. Every year, she puts together various packages that often include a cup of coffee, lunch or a sailing trip. "We also have themed tours, such as the 'Tasty Food Tour' where the starter, main course and dessert are in different restaurants. The participants walk with a guide from one restaurant to another. We have a photo workshop, a walk where a photographer immediately tells you how you can capture our photogenic city in an original and creative way with your smartphone. Every year, I try to add something new. This year, it's supping in the inner harbours. In addition, I make tailor-made day trips, entirely according to the wishes of the customer. This could be for a birthday, a company outing, a family celebration, or anything at all. I make arrangements for this with Dordt entrepreneurs such as Den Witten Haen, Rutte, Het Magazijn, Osteria Luca, Dordts Genoegen, Merz, lunchroom Hartje Stad, museums, De Dordtevaar and DRIJF Dordrecht."
"It's also fun to discover the city through a game. Via an app, you can solve a murder, hunt for an escaped gangster or solve a hack. In the meantime, you pass the most beautiful highlights in the city centre. Fun for children, but definitely for adults too." A good overview of all the possibilities can (soon) be found on the brand new website www.dagtochtendordrecht.nl, you can also register here. Are you planning an unforgettable day and would you like some support? Then Patricia is always there to think along with you.
