>Members of the Circle of Academic Tour Guides of the Netherlands, Flanders and German speaking lands (CATON) can meet their clients in The Netherlands, Germany, Austria and in Flanders for a personalized guided tour of art museums and historic centers. During these tours we express our fascination and our enthusiasm for history.
Back to the CATON welcome page.
The circle was founded unofficially on April 13, 1998, and has opened its public web site in 2008, ten years later. Our primary aim is to "Promote and stimulate the highest quality in academic level tour guide activity in The Netherlands, Flanders and German speaking lands." In practice, the Circle strives to enhance the professional quality and the communicative skills of tour guides, by organizing meetings and master classes in didactic matters and in communication techniques, marketing skills, and in some cases through giving its support, financial and otherwise, for relevant activities . Members of the Circle are kept informed of these activities through announcements through emails.
The Circle of Academic Tour Guides of the Netherlands, Flanders and German speaking lands (CATON) considers a great tour guide a person who is a deeply knowledgeable expert in the field of history, art history, archaeology, architecture, or another field of related expertise, and who is able to express this knowledge in an articulate, multi-faceted, enticing, exhilaring and fun way. In the day-to-day work our tour guides express both a lust for life and an enthusiasm for all of these artistic fields of human endeavour.
Enjoy yourself and learn about history while strolling and discussing the country's history, art and culture. In doing so, we may touch many bases - spanning not only fine art and architecture but also the city's history and current social issues.
