What a wonderful experience! Walda was professional and knowledgeable and designed a tour specific to our family. She helped us visit places we had frequented 45 years ago when we lived in Nijmegen, and she provided fascinating historical information as we toured City Centre. She was flexible as well: When we learned we could eat lunch in Germany, fulfilling one family member's wishes, Walda easily found a lunch spot for us and translated for the servers. Our tour was special and memorable.
