Marie G LudwigUnited Kingdom
Stefka, in the Netherlands, gave us great historical and social background to the places we visited and answered all our many questions very thoroughly. She took us to wonderful restaurants for marvellous lunches. Amazingly, she located our relatives which enabled us to meet them in a very special reunion. I would definitely request her services again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marie, it was lovely meeting you finally :) Happy to hear you had such a good time in the Netherlands and my services contributed to that. Say hello to all your sisters for me.
Lindsay GilstrapUnited States
My tour guide throughout the Netherlands and Belgium was Stefka and she is amazing! She is very professional and knowledgeable about all the areas we visited. We went to Brugge and Brussels in Belgium and we visited some traditional Netherlands scenery. All of it was lovely and Stefka answered all my questions quickly. She speaks excellent English. I would highly recommend Stefka and Tours By Locals!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure Lindsay. Loved showing you Netherlands and Belgium as my new friend!
Nitin NarangUnited States
Very personalized, very flexible and I would say without any second thought we will come back to her again and again. Awesome Stefka. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nitin! It has been a pleasure showing your family my lovely country for a few days. Hopefully we meet again. :)
Joy BrottDallas, TX, United States
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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Joy!
Stefka was wonderful. She was cheerful, respectful, and helpful. Extremely knowledgeable about the country and put together a 3-day excursion that had us experience a delightful part of the country. She was mindful of our physical limitations (one in our party has a slight disability) and worked to make the experience great for all of us. I would book her again in a heartbeat!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kathy it has been my pleasure!
Carol RiddleUnited States
Stefka exceeded our expectations throughout our 4- day best of Holland tour. Each day was carefully planned to meet our interests in looking into my Dutch heritage. Stefka shared her deep local knowledge with her fine command of English as she professionally drove us around the country. She researched my family history and led us to my great grandfather's home and grave. Always on time and prepared, she knows her history and her people. We are grateful we had her as our guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I truly enjoyed taking you on this 4-day trip through (un)discovered highlights of the Netherlands. Thank you for your personal gift and hart warming postcard. Stefka
Andy BleggiUnited States

Robert StewartUnited States
She was delightful to spend the day with. She was very knowledgeable with the city, history and almost everything we had questions about. We would recommend her to everyone.
Chris WaddenUnited States
Steph was very professional, knowledgeable, and customer focused. The day was well planned and paced. She answered every question we asked with logical and well thought out perspective On a personal level chemistry was lacking with us ( could be cultural) but a minor point compared to her overall performance.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review Chris. Enjoy your travels.
Susan KnepplerUnited States
Our family had an amazing day today with Stefka. We toured all over the city of Amsterdam as well as the countryside. Stefka made sure the day was planned around what we truly wanted to see. She picked a quaint restaurant in a small village for lunch. We went places that the large tours don't go so we never waited in a line or felt rushed. This tour made our last day in the Netherlands perfect! Thank you Stefka!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Your welcome Susan! It was nice meeting you and your family. Have a safe flight home and maybe until next time!
William FordUnited States
Stefka was an amazing tour guide. She is knowledgable, friendly, and very accommodating. We learn a great deal about the history, architecture, and culture -- past and present -- of Amsterdam and also of the countryside that we visited with her for an afternoon. We also spent a full day in Belgium, visiting Antwerp and Brugges. She gave us lots of helpful information and recommendations for dining, etc. Stefka is a 5-star tour guide and we highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Bill and Freddy. It was a pleasure to show you the highlights of the Netherlands and Belgium!
Nancy HallUnited States
Stefka made great suggestions of how to spend our two days in the countryside with her. She was willing to advise on how we could make the most of our time traveling on our own as well.
Cynthia PladziewiczUnited States
Stefka was an excellent guide. She came well prepared with a great itinerary and helpful information. Being able to go out into the countryside in her car was invaluable. We loved the farm tour, windmills and seeing the tulips at Keukenhof Gardens.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Cynthia! It was a pleasure to share my beautiful country with you. Warm regards, Stefka
Martin MayoUnited States
We booked two days of touring with Stefka. Mrs. and I had a wonderful time visiting sites selected to resonate with our interests. The windmills pumping and many small towns visited filled our brains and sd cards with many lasting memories. Thanks, Stefka for a great time!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Martin! It was a great pleasure to show you my beautiful country. I wish for you to enjoy the memories a long time! Stefka
