It's hard to hit the highlights of the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum in a 3 1/2 hour tour, but Roland did an excellent job! Roland knows the physical layout, artwork, and artist histories in depth. We could have spent many more hours on our own and not gained the appreciation of these museums that we experienced with Roland. Roland's English was excellent and we were able to communicate easily. We would highly recommend him if you want to experience the best of these museums in a short amount of time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Arnold, Thank you so much for the wonderful time we spent together and this review. It was a big pleasure showing you around in both museums.... Enjoy your weekend and see you soon!!! Roland.
Roland gave us an excellent tour of the Van Gogh and Rijks museums. Roland knew where to take us in the museums ands to show us the important highlights of each museum. His knowledge of the works of art was very good and I would highly recommend his tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mark, Dave, Jo and Sally, for the wonderful day we spent together. Enjoy your stay in Amsterdam!!

Roland was a very pleasant and knowledgeable guide. He took us through the Van Gough and Rijks museums and shared with us his wealth of knowledge. He was also very patient with three ladies who needed a coffee break and shopping time. After our tour he made certain we knew how to get to the flower market and back to our hotel using the tram. It was a wonderful tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kathryn, Thank you for the wonderful time we spent together. It was a big pleasure showing you the art of Van Gogh, Rembrandt and other Dutch masters. I am glad to hear you found the flower market and enjoyed the dinner at Savini. All the best to your travel friends and I look forward to meet you soon! Warm regards from Amsterdam, Roland.

We have done several guided tour in various cities and I have to say that Roland is among the best guides we've had. He took us to the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and both his depth and breadth of knowledge in those places is remarkable. He quickly bonded with our small group and at times it was like being guided by friend. I would highly recommend Roland as a tour guide any time you're in Amsterdam.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul, Thank you very much for this great review. It was a big pleasure being your private guide in the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum. Enjoy Amsterdam, your upcoming river cruise and also your stay in Switzerland. Can you send my best regards to your travel friends? Best regards, Roland.
Gary StephensonUnited States
Roland did a wonderful job in showing us the highlights in both museums. His knowledge of the artists and art history created the most meaningful museum experience we have ever had. As we only had a half day, he allowed us to cover the most famous and noted pieces of art in each museum. His friendly manner made us feel like we were touring with a long time friend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gary, It was a great pleasure guiding you in the van Gogh and the Rijksmuseum. We definitely will make it to Chicago one day! I'd love to see the architecture from Frank Lloyd Wright. And regarding to my homework at the van Gogh museum: the book Isaiah talks about the Redeemer (or Saviour). This is what Vincent tried to say in this painting. Enjoy ancient Europe and warm regards from Amsterdam! Roland.
Nancy ChamblessUnited States
