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!
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

I gladly give Walda a 5 for each tour. She is an excellent guide, very knowledgeable in European art history and a very pleasant person to spend time with. My girlfriend and I enjoyed her company and the knowledge she shared with us regarding Bosch, Bruegel, and many other great painters. I strongly recommend her for anyone who has an interest in these artists. Thank you Walda!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jerry, it was fun touring with you both in Den Bosch, The Hague, Rotterdam, Antwerp, Brussels and back to The Hague and Amsterdam again. It was my pleasure to prepare custom made itineraries for you, based on your favorite painters. Please come back another time and we can see some more places and museums related to your interests. Kind regards, Walda

Randa GilesUnited States
Walda knows everything you would ever want to have explained about art. This is 4 Stars because you can not hear in the back of her Citroen.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Randa, Thank you for your 4 star rating. I'm sorry that you couldn't hear well in the back of the car. I wish you had told me so; I could have spoken more loudly or you could have switched places. Glad to know that you appreciated my expertise. Let's do a canal cruise on a private salon boat next time: it's electrical and very quiet! Kind regards, Walda
Thanks for providing the transport Walda, much better you negotiating the crazy traffic than us! Kind regards, Sacha & Craig
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad you liked my little car and driving skills, Sacha and Craig! Kind regards, Walda
Cynthia HickmanUnited States
If it accommodates the size of your group, no more than three, I highly recommend Walda's personal car. Small cars go where larger cars can't!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Cynthia, I knew you would like my small car! Wasn't it great to drive through small picturesque villages north of Amsterdam, where the buses can't go? Thank you for your 5 star review, Walda
Jim DonovanUnited States
We had a great day with Walda in the Dutch countryside. She was very flexible with the schedule, personable, and a very knowlegable guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Jim and Bev! I enjoyed it too! It was a great day in the Keukenhof, The Hague and Delft. Go Pats! Walda
Marti SantoroUnited States
Walda met us at our hotel at the appointed time and from that point on we enjoyed our tour of The Haag very much. She was highly knowledgeable about the locations we visited, personable, friendly and efficient. We couldn't have asked for more and would recommend her to anyone interested in touring the area where we visited. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend with her touring in other locations. SIncerely, Richard and Marti Santoro
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for another 5 star rating! Let's meet again and I'll drive you around and show you some more in other locations! Sincerely, Walda
Maggie MontgomeryUnited States
We had a wonderful time with Walda. We did Anne Frank House.. She went online and got time slotted tickets and that made all the difference.. after the Anne Frank house we crossed the street and there was our private Saloon boat with our Captain Yuri to take us on a beautiful hour cruise on the canals. His boat was amazing and just the 8 of us on it. Everyone should do the canals that way. we drove to where Anne Frank lived before going into hiding .. we finished with windmills. a Great day, a great guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Maggie and group, It WAS a great day! Glad that you enjoyed our private canal cruise on Yuri's beautiful saloon boat from 1922, a custom made Anne Frank tour by minivan and a walking tour in the windmill area. Thank you for your 5 star rating, Walda
Diana SetzerUnited States
Walda was very prompt. She was very accommodating and informative. She created a relaxed atmosphere with her positive personality. She made very good use of our time, creating many wonderful memories.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Diana! It was a great day, driving around in the countryside, visiting the Zaanse Schans windmills before it was too crowded, having lunch in Edam and strolling in Marken on a sunny day, wasn't it? I appreciate the fact that you (Amy especially) wanted to give me a seven star rating!!! Makes me blush... All the best, Walda
Walda was our guide for four days when we went to different places throughout the Netherlands. When planning our trip, she gave us great tips on things we shouldn't miss--we fortunately caught a VERY important and rare exhibition of Hieronymus Bosch based on her advice, which we would have missed were it not for her suggestion. She is VERY organized, prompt, good at planning, very flexible, a great driver and a very nice person to travel with! Our group of six people loved her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Patrick and family, I enjoyed travelling with you from Schiphol Airport to Den Bosch, Maastricht, Delft, Gouda, Oudewater, Woerden, Keukenhof, Zaanse schans windmills and Amsterdam. It was my pleasure, you were a great group! Thank you very much for your 5 star rating. Hope to see you again one day. Hugs, Walda
