We really enjoyed the day Vincent took us to a small village outside of Amsterdam, saw the windmills, and to a cheese farm; then later to the Van Gogh museum. He is very knowledgeable. He gave us time alone to grab a bite to eat which we really did appreciate and he gave us time to buy gifts when we were at the cheese farm (the best place to purchase all types of gift items besides cheese).

Based on past experience we again utilized the services of Tours by Locals. To date we have never been disappointed and this was another positive outcome. Vincent (our guide) exchanged numerous emails with us as we worked out the details of our visit. He tailored our tour to address the things we wanted to see and took into consideration our mobility limitations. On the day of our tour he arrived at our hotel ahead of our planned departure time. His vehicle was clean and spacious; he provided bottled

Vincent was a WEALTH of information both during our 3 hour walking tour of downtown Amsterdam and then when we continued into the Dutch countryside to visit windmills at Schemmerhorn and the old fishing village of Ript. His choice of restaurant for lunch was charming and overall just delightful. It was a very full, fun and informative day We highly recommend Vincent Arend as a guide.

Vincent was a pleasure to be with and he did a terrific job helping us to get a flavor for Amsterdam and the surrounding countryside. He met our flight at the airport and we spent the entire day touring the countryside and city of Amsterdam. We have used Tours By Locals in many other European cities and Vincent rates among the best in our experience.

Vincent was a great guide. We went to all the places i wanted to see. He was patient while my wife wanted to poke her head into shops. My wife's pedometer showed we walked 6.2 miles with him. He had great knowledge of the history and geography of the Amsterdam area. I highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind words Ralph! It was great. Hope you had a good trip back home. Kind regards Vincent
Robert CaplanUnited States
A great tour guide and tour! Vincent was waiting right outside the terminal with a large sign with my name on it and we were able to get started immediately. As we had discussed our plans via email, Vincent had booked our tickets to the Anne Frank museum and we were able to first tour her original neighborhood and see her home before going. Everything else that we had asked to do was taken care of and we had a great time. An additional last minute request was easily dealt with by him! A great guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Robert. Also my best regards to the others. Vincent

What a wonderful way to spend our first day in Amsterdam exploring the quaint villages, learning about how the land was reclaimed and climbing the windmill. Cheese factory was interesting and very tasty. We finished with a tour of the city.

Kent ChilcotUnited States
A private walking tour beyond comparison! Vincent was so casual, comfortable, knowledgeable and kind as he took us to the "off the beaten track" sights we might never never had seen on any other (or on a group) tour. We had already been to the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, and Anne Frank House, so walking and talking about the canals, explaining the varied types of architecture, and his especially narration ( e.g. Begijnhof, Burgerweeshuis, Old Church) all made for a very special and memorable day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kent!
