We had an absolute amazing tour of the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum with Walda. We had done the Rhine riverboat (Uniworld) tour and then decided to go it alone in Amsterdam. We are not the best at art museums and wanted someone who knew what they were talking about to accompany us through them. After being on two riverboat cruises and all their tours I can say without a doubt that Wanda stood out as one of the best tour guides we have ever had. Worth every penny.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow, I'm one of the best tour guides you ever had? You make me blush!!! Thanks Mark! Kisses, Walda

Walda was amazing! She was extremely knowledgeable. She helped plan the perfect day for us from museum tours to a gorgeous canal boat ride. Her stories behind various works of art and her detailed account of historic events in the Netherlands were fascinating. She was cheerful and energetic, keeping us entertained all day. Walda offered insights and great advice for our entire stay in Amsterdam (including great dining and other sights to see on our own).

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Good to hear you found a nice restaurant after our tour! Thank you for your 5 star review and your kind words. It was my pleasure to show you around in the Anne Frank House, Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lena, thank you for your review. Glad you liked our 6 hours VIP tour with a luxury van and private driver who picked us up after our visit to the Anne Frank House and drove us to the Zaanse Schans windmills and into the countryside. Sorry to hear three weeks later that you felt that the VIP private transportation was a bit pricey; I could have offered another solution before you booked. I hope you remember our tour as pleasant and informative. Sincerely, Walda

This tour was probably my favorite of my entire vacation to Europe. How fortunate we were to have Walda to guide us through two magnificent museums. As an art historian she was interesting, knowledgeable and was able to fast track us through the crowds. Walda also picked the highlights for us at the Rijksmuseum when we were running low on time. The best part of the day was the private canal boat ride with gourmet lunch that she planned. Walda was friendly and personable. We enjoyed every minute with her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Shana, I'm blushing! Thank you for your kind words, you made my day! I also enjoyed being with you today, hope you can come again and I'll show your other daughters the beauty of Amsterdam. Best, Walda

Walda was a pleasure to meet. She was very knowledgeable not only about the art, but also the most efficient way to access the shortcuts to tickets and lines. In addition to her art expertise, she also recommended and hired on our behalf, a "Monument" boat! We toured the canals in a 1922 wooden boat! Money very well spent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Catherine! Good to hear that your money was well spent, as you know I HATE tourist traps and always do my very best to provide the best possible tour: one I would enjoy myself when on vacation.

On the last day of our visit, we paid a visit to the Onze Lieve Vrouwe Church to view the Madonna by Michelangelo. She will stand out as one of the highlights of our entire tour. On our return drive to Amsterdam, we were able to visit the Royal Delft Factory and also the Maurithuis Museum in The Hague.

Tour: Day 5 of 6 custom made tour to Ghent and Bruges in Belgium 2019 April 28 with your own private art historian, private guide, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Date: Apr 28/19

Our drive from Amsterdam was filled with interesting conversation about the Dutch countryside and history. Our arrival in Ghent, Belgium, was a bit like traveling back in time. The medieval city center, which we saw both walking and from the canal boat, was picturesque, and viewing the Ghent Altarpiece at St. Bavo's was a highlight. Bruges was a continuation of our back-in-time experience. We were so glad Walda was able to guide us in these lovely, romantic Belgian cities. And there was chocolate!

When we were planning our visit, we had no idea what King's Day was. Turns out, it was a great day to go see the gardens at Keukenhof, explore the windmills at Zaanse Schans, and check out the cheese farm in Edam. The weather was a bit unsettled, but our visit went as planned, including seeing the Jersey cows--and newborn calves--at the cheese farm. The cheese, of course, was delicious. By the way, in addition to her extensive knowledge of the area attractions, Walda is an excellent driver!

Our visit to the Rietveld-Schroder House in Utrecht was of particular interest to me because of its unique approach to residential architecture and design. And our visits to the historical sites related to World War II brought memories of my father and his military service in Europe during WWII. Walda is excellent at making history come alive in the present day, and that adds so much to our travel experience. This kind of personal connection to the places we visited is exactly what I want.

This was the first of six wonderful days of touring for me and my son Collins. Starting with the Anne Frank House, cruising the canals on a private 1922 salon boat (with a delicious lunch onboard!), and finishing with a city walk that included Rembrandt House, churches, historical sites--our introduction to the Netherlands could not have been better. Working with Walda was like finding a long-lost cousin and coming for a visit. We felt immediately welcome and comfortable in the Netherlands.

Fantastic tour with an enthusiastic art historian. Walda is fantastic!! We got so much more information than we would have on our own. Due to the efficiency of the tour we were able to see a lot in a short period of time. The private canal tour was well worth it. Thank you Walda for a great day in Amsterdam.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Such a great review, thank you Denise! I appreciate it, thank you very much! Hope to meet again for another great day in Amsterdam, or Delft, The Hague, Haarlem, Rotterdam.... Sincerely, Walda

Walda arrived right on time at our Amsterdam hotel to drive us to The Hague & Delft. Our visit to the Mauritshuis was so enjoyable. Her art history knowledge added so much to our understanding of the museum's outstanding collection. One can view paintings on your own but the history behind them is where an art historian such as Walda provides true value. In Delft, Walda's Dutch history knowledge took center stage on our walking tour of the city, church & on The Royal Delft Factory tour. Book with Walda.

The first part of the tour was what we had hoped for. The second part tour to Delft could have been skipped leaving more time for the morning activities.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul, sorry to hear that you believe we could have deleted Delft. I noticed you were tired already and therefore I suggested to skip the Delft city walk; you wanted a shorter tour to be able to reach the airport on time.

Walda was amazing. I loved my tour of the Rijks Museum and the Van Gough Museum. I had the best boat in Amsterdam to tour the canals. She also planned a lunch at a Michelin star restaurant. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Karen, for your kind words! We had three days together, it was wonderful sharing our love for art and culture together. Hope to meet again one day, all the best, Walda

We visited Rembrandt House, the Royal Palace, the Rijksmuseum, and the Van Gogh Museum with Walda. She is an excellent tour guide; extremely knowledgeable, efficient in planning the tour, good company, and delivers the tour in an engaging way. I thoroughly recommend using her services.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Nick! It was my honour to guide the sponsors of the Britten Sinfonia. Hope to see you again one day in the Concertgebouw! Sincerely, Walda
