A superb art museum tour of Rijksmuseum and Stedelijk Museum. Walda is friendly and knowledgeable - she knew how to focus the tour so that we got a deep sense of Rembrandt, his followers and environment and Netherlands' Golden Age. Then after a quick lunch in the public garden outside the museums, we enjoyed her guiding us through the development and movements in contemporary art. She is easy to talk to and learn from.

As Marianne breezed through the door with a smile and air of confidence, I knew our family (two 20something daughters, sister & husband) was in for a great adventure on our first day in Amsterdam. Marianne met us at our hotel and provided training on riding the tram and avoiding bicycles. She was charming and knowledgeable about her city. She began our tour with a map and a suggestion on how to proceed making sure she was attentive to our needs as travelers. Marianne was a delightful and professional guide. I was sad when we parted company. I would highly recommend Marianne as a local guide on a first day to understand the uniqueness of Amsterdam.

We had a great time with Gert in Amsterdam. He planned a custom tour for our layover that included a canal tour on his boat. We truly felt like locals and I highly recommend reserving a tour with Gert.

We spent a lovely day and a half with Yvonne and a pace that suited us all. My two teenage daughters were very comfortable with Yvonne and she listened when they chattered on. It was delightful to learn about the history of Amsterdam and the architecture of the drunk buildings while walking or on the boat. She was very knowledgeable. Even nicer is that Yvonne organized a little cheese and chocolate tasting with delightful vendors off the beaten track. It felt like meeting a friend every morning sharing experiences and made the whole trip relaxed.

tefka is a fantastic guide who speaks perfect English, very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. She made our trip to Keukenhof Gardens so wonderful and fun. She took us to see tulip fields, windmills and a cheese shop prior to our visit to the gardens. Stefka took us too a wonderful restaurant for lunch. We have traveled Europe extensively over the last 10 years and we take mostly private tours and Stefka ranks as one of the best. She provided us transportation in a very confortable van.
