This is an excellent tour and we had a most wonderful guide in Stefka. We were able to go to a working dairy/cheese farm where most all bought the most delicious cheeses and the staff was very accommodating. We drove to Giethoorn where we had a delightful lunch on the canal before taking a boat tour through the canals to see the homes. It would've been most beautiful in the summer but was still a joy to see the houses and learn the history and a short stop at a windmill. Stefka is a great driver in rain
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are all lovely positive ladies! It was a pleasure to show you the country.

Stefka listened to our thoughts and wishes and put together a great full-day experience in the Dutch countryside. Giethoorn is a village that no one should miss when traveling to the Netherlands. The intimacy, quaintness and feel of the village were only heightened by Stefka's knowledge and passion for the village and her country. Then going to Muiderslot and Muiden Castle was the perfect way to end a great day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Neil. I enjoyed our conversations. You are a lovely couple and it was my pleasure to show you my country.

Stefka is an amazing resource of information as well as a fun person to spend the day with! We had a terrific time in Geithoorn as well as the drive along the way. Stefka suggested great places to stop for photos and had so much knowledge of the area, she was able to answer all our questions about Holland, tulips, restaurants- everything! My only regret is not hiring Stefka for a full 3 day tour, as she is a delight and I know it would be spectacular! I'm definitely recommending her to family and friends
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this heart warming review Brenda. I was so sorry to hear you missed the flower floats the previous day. Happy to be able to adjust the itinerary so you could still see them in Haarlem before going to Giethoorn. It was lovely to spend the day with you.

Stefka provided a customized day tour for our group, visiting a personal location in Zwolle and scenic surrounding areas. We had agreed to visiting three locations, the Zwolle, Geithoorn and Muiderslot Castle. Muiderslot Castle was missed in the tour due to time allocation. We were generally disappointed in the quality of Stefka's services. She was disengaged at times and generally not prepared. We were also put in a position to pay for her lunch? A more thoughtful and focused structure was expected.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Geoffrey, sorry to hear you are dissapointed in my services. I’m surprised as well as I didn’t get that impression. It has been a busy summer and I might not have been 100% fit and could have done a better job on time management. I wish you would have told me during the tour so I could have acted on it immediately. Stefka

We wanted a tour where we could see the country side north of Amsterdam - we found Stefka! We had the experience of a life time. Giethoorn is just what it says....a little town not to be missed if you want something quaint and really beautiful! We went on a little boat on the canals of Giethoorn. O yes...on the way there we stopped at a dispensing machine for STRAWBERRIES! The wind turbine visit was amazing. A 'fish lunch', eating herring 'like the Dutch' do with ice cream on the harbour. Thanks Stefka
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Corlia!

Stefka met me and my husband at the airport after a red-eye flight and whisked us away to Geithoorn. She is so personable and knowledgeable about all things Dutch, we thoroughly enjoyed our day with her. This was a perfect way to spend our extra day in the Netherlands before a river cruise. We learned so much without ever feeling like we were being lectured. Stefka dropped us off at our Amsterdam hotel at the end of the day, jet-lagged but so happy with our first day of vacation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Giny! It was my pleasure showing you a bit of the country side. Hope you have enjoyed your river cruise! Stefka

Stefka customized the tour for 6 of us as we had a free day post cruise and had already visited Amsterdam extensively. We could not have been happier with her choices, the pacing of the tour and the guiding services. She arrived promptly at our meeting point with a van large enough to accommodate all our luggage and ample room for the 6 of us. Throughout the day she was mindful of our needs and demonstrated provided extensive information during the tour.

Mrs. Stefka Waaijer developed a wonderful day long tour for us to Geithoorn, Netherlands, also known as the Venice of the north. Just gorgeous! Stefka picked us up at the pier our Royal Caribbean cruise ship docked at with a van large enough for our group of 4 adults and all our luggage, very painless! We also visited a very old windmill as well as a beautiful orchid grower, that is a must see! We also had a nice local lunch in Giethoorn. We would highly recommend this guide & tour! Rick / USA ����
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rick! It was a pleasure to show your party these Dutch treasures :)

I heartily recommend Stefka as a tour guide. My wife and I spent three delightful and informative days with her touring towns and interesting sights outside Amsterdam. Stefka is very knowledgeable and has an engaging personality which we appreciated. She was happy to modify the itineraries of her published tours to include additional sights that we wanted to see.
Kent BradleyUnited States
What a great day! I worked with her by e-mail ahead of my arrival and was able to create the custom tour I desired. The car was great and she managed everything wonderfully. I was able to get out of the city and see everything I had hoped to see. It was a delight to spend the day with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kent. It was a pleasure getting to know you and show you the sites in the country.
