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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bobbe and Collins, it is such a pleasure to meet people who have your enthusiasm and interests. You picked great places to visit and it was a delight to show you around in the Netherlands and Belgium. Thank you for having me as your private guide for six full days! Miss you, Walda

Walda was perfect. She is very easy to understand and very knowledgeable. She was exactly on time, patient as I wanted to take photographs, and very thorough with all the plans, directions, and ticket purchase to save time. I am glad I had scheduled a private tour and would highly recommend ToursbyLocals, and especially Walda. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Betsy! We had a wonderful time together. I was happy to show you the Flower Auction, take you to the Keukenhof and find some beautiful tulip fields for your phototour. Thank you so much for the flower pictures calendar that you made for me! Ciao, Walda

The "flower tour" by Walda was a great experience for me. I had wanted to see flowers and opted to spend time in Amsterdam before my river cruise. I was delighted to find her Alsmeer and Keukenhof tour on the Tours website. Walda arrived at my hotel early and was patient while I finished my breakfast. This is her usual procedure. She is highly intelligent, well informed and a good driver! Wanda is a lovely young lady and I would be proud to call her my daughter. Marlys Nickisch - St. George, UT
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow, Marlys! Thank you for your kind words and thank you very much for the lovely gifts. My daughters were so happy with the necklaces! Lots of love, Walda

This was a private tour of the Aalsmeer flower auction, Keukenhof Gardens and Delft. The auction and gardens do not actually require a guide. But we did not want to go on a bus with 50 other people and have a preset amount of time to enjoy the gardens. She obtained tickets to the Keukenhof early, which allowed us to skip lines. In Delft she guided us around the town hall, old church, and the pottery factory. She was excellent in putting things in historical perspective made the day quite enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Alan! I'm glad you appreciate my professional services as your personal guide and driver. I enjoyed our day at the Keukenhof and Delft. Thanks for the waffle and "12 uurtje" lunch. Best regards, Walda
