Tour: #281086, Giethoorn - Customized Private Tour, Amsterdam, Netherlands    view tour
Date: Dec 6/19

This is an excellent tour and we had a most wonderful guide in Stefka. We were able to go to a working dairy/cheese farm where most all bought the most delicious cheeses and the staff was very accommodating. We drove to Giethoorn where we had a delightful lunch on the canal before taking a boat tour through the canals to see the homes. It would've been most beautiful in the summer but was still a joy to see the houses and learn the history and a short stop at a windmill. Stefka is a great driver in rain

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are all lovely positive ladies! It was a pleasure to show you the country.

Stefka listened to our thoughts and wishes and put together a great full-day experience in the Dutch countryside. Giethoorn is a village that no one should miss when traveling to the Netherlands. The intimacy, quaintness and feel of the village were only heightened by Stefka's knowledge and passion for the village and her country. Then going to Muiderslot and Muiden Castle was the perfect way to end a great day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Neil. I enjoyed our conversations. You are a lovely couple and it was my pleasure to show you my country.

What a fantastic tour it could not have been better. Stefka was very knowledgeable about everything and did a fabulous job of planning the perfect tour for us exactly what we were looking for outside of the city of Amsterdam. She took us to Delft to see the making of the pottery then on to see some working windmills and final stop a beautiful Castle. If I am ever in the city again I will again engage her to see some different sights.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nicolette! Hope to see you again some day. Enjoy traveling!

If you want to see, experience and taste The Netherlands outside of the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam, then you need to spend time with Stefka. Her intimate knowledge of her country, its history and its people is unsurpassed. This isn't anything like a commercialized clogs and cheese tour. There is a working farm, real Dutch wooden shoe craftsman and real windmill all mixed with intimate Dutch towns. If you want to learn about the Netherlands and get a taste of the country this is the tour for you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review, Neil. I enjoyed taking you and Janet to these typical Dutch sights which I love to visit myself :)

It was fabulous! Picked up on time in AMS then drove to the farm. My husband had never been up close to a cow before and he petted and feed the cow. Then had a cheese making demo and a clog demo. Oh and then we shopped and they shipped which made life easy. She picked a perfect little town for lunch and then a tour of the windmill. We learned so much today and the tour was worth every penny. We arrived at our hotel in Brussels refreshed and ready to go. Thank you for a wonderful day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow your fast ;) Thank you for this wonderful review. The town we had lunch was ‘Woudrichem’. Have a great time in Brussels and keep enjoying your travels. Will check out your blog!

We spent a glorious day in the countryside with Stefka. She arranged a visit to a farm (complete with 1.5 day old calves and tiny chicks!). Our grandson got to make a wooden shoe. We sampled delicious cheese and saw how it was made. We toured a beautiful old pumping station and climbed to the top of an old windmill. Stefka even got on stilts with our grandson. Everything was perfect!

Stefka was wonderful. We had some special requests, liking finding some addresses where some of our group once lived, a well as making the day meaningful for all - ages 7-77. Our desire was to see the sites of The Hague and give the children meaningful experiences. She provided us with options for everything - climbing a windmill, options to try some traditional childhood games, a Delft factory, Madurodam, as well as the International Court of Justice. Couldn't have been better. Thanks, Stefka.

You want Stefka for your guide. She is highly professional, personable, and extremely knowledgeable about The Netherlands. She went above and beyond to make our tour comfortable and entertaining. Our party of 6 learned so much and we always felt like we were with a savvy guide whose company was very pleasant. She provided bottled water which was great as the tour day was bright and sunny and almost approaching "hot". The lunch stop was a big surprise in the area of the sand dunes on the North Sea.

Stefka is an amazing resource of information as well as a fun person to spend the day with! We had a terrific time in Geithoorn as well as the drive along the way. Stefka suggested great places to stop for photos and had so much knowledge of the area, she was able to answer all our questions about Holland, tulips, restaurants- everything! My only regret is not hiring Stefka for a full 3 day tour, as she is a delight and I know it would be spectacular! I'm definitely recommending her to family and friends

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this heart warming review Brenda. I was so sorry to hear you missed the flower floats the previous day. Happy to be able to adjust the itinerary so you could still see them in Haarlem before going to Giethoorn. It was lovely to spend the day with you.

Stefka provided a customized day tour for our group, visiting a personal location in Zwolle and scenic surrounding areas. We had agreed to visiting three locations, the Zwolle, Geithoorn and Muiderslot Castle. Muiderslot Castle was missed in the tour due to time allocation. We were generally disappointed in the quality of Stefka's services. She was disengaged at times and generally not prepared. We were also put in a position to pay for her lunch? A more thoughtful and focused structure was expected.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Geoffrey, sorry to hear you are dissapointed in my services. I’m surprised as well as I didn’t get that impression. It has been a busy summer and I might not have been 100% fit and could have done a better job on time management. I wish you would have told me during the tour so I could have acted on it immediately. Stefka

We used Stefka for 2 of our 3 days in Amsterdam since she specialized in tours in the surrounding areas. She was totally open to anything we wanted to do, but not knowing anything of the country we left it up to her. The only exception was the Louwman car museum which she was happy to add and seemed to enjoy her first experience there as did we! She and our other Amsterdam guide, Eric, coordinated well so that there were no duplications. I thoroughly recommend getting out of the city with Stefka!

We had lunch in a local sea side resort as a nice treat. She knew the area well and took us to several beautiful fields of flowers. She kept her "cool" when we were caught in awful traffic. Thank you for a wonderful tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your lovely review!

Stefka went above and beyond in meeting our expectation for this tour. She worked with us ahead of time to arrange a plan to meet the highlights we wanted to see throughout the area. She was extremely pleasant to spend the day with. Highly recommend Stefka for anyone wanting to get to know more about the Netherlands and see sites outside of Amsterdam.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your amazing review! I enjoyed meeting you as well.

Stefka met me and my husband at the airport after a red-eye flight and whisked us away to Geithoorn. She is so personable and knowledgeable about all things Dutch, we thoroughly enjoyed our day with her. This was a perfect way to spend our extra day in the Netherlands before a river cruise. We learned so much without ever feeling like we were being lectured. Stefka dropped us off at our Amsterdam hotel at the end of the day, jet-lagged but so happy with our first day of vacation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Giny! It was my pleasure showing you a bit of the country side. Hope you have enjoyed your river cruise! Stefka

Stefka modeled the tour to our specifications and added her personal touch because she knew the area so well. We were picked up at the airport, visited tulip farms, Keukenhof Gardens, ate lunch by the sea, saw local windmills, and a local dairy farm. We ended with Stefka delivering us to our ship. It was an excellent tour, very informative. Highly recommend Stefka.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Joann! I enjoyed spending the day with you. Hope will meet again.

Stefka is super. The only problem is the cost was too high for the value to be there. Should be priced hundreds lower...she is worth more than the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Joe & Connie. It was truly lovely to meet you again! Sorry to hear you found the tour overpriced. Thank you for elaborating on this directly by email with me. Enjoy your travels! Warm regards, Stefka
