Amsterdam City Center
Marion Baumgarten was born in New York City, and grew up there, in the Netherlands, and in other parts of the world, studying French Language & Literature at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, and Library Science in Geneva, followed by Business and Tourism in New York City. After her studies she continued to live in New York City for many years; first working at UN Headquarters, followed by a career in the travel industry – initially in tour operations supervising flight check-ins at airports and planning tour departures – later in group sales, and eventually starting her own company accompanying groups through and from New York City (where she is a licensed guide) to other areas of the United States and Canada, especially the East Coast.
In 2009 she decided to return to the country of her youth, and make her home in Amsterdam, where she is again doing what she likes best, enthusiastically sharing her love of the city where she now lives!
