Frank's tour was fantastic, taking us out into the countryside of the Netherlands for experiences that were most worthwhile. Frank was very friendly and professional and we very much enjoyed the entire day. Highly recommended.

Frank is an amazing tour guide, he is very knowledgeable and personable. The Dutch Icons tour gives you a great overview of the Dutch countryside, you will see the charming waterfront towns of Volendam and Marken (where you get to see wooden shoes being made) as well as a visit to a cheese maker and some very well maintained windmills. We also had a delicious lunch outdoors overlooking the water in Marken. Everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed this tour and talked about it for the rest of our trip.

We have never used tours by locals, but we only had one day to tour outside of Amsterdam and I decided on trying a personal guide. Frank was very knowledgeable, but most importantly he listened to what I wanted to accomplish and tailored the day to my wishes. We had planned on taking a walking tour of Amsterdam, but didn't. We learned a lot about the Netherlands history and current situation with Frank. I would definitely use him again and highly recommend him.

Wow! I don't know how we could ever say enough compliments about Frank and the tour. Frank took us to Freisland to see relatives in a very nice van that we were able to include them to show us the local sites. Frank is so very kind and very well versed on every subject to do with Amsterdam or the countryside or Dutch history. What a nice guy to stay with us to have lunch at a relative's home of one of the tour members.....and sincerely enjoy the time we had in Freisland as much as we did! Todd,Kent &Jack

A really great tour with a great guide. Frank showed us a good piece of the countryside outside of Amsterdam and a part of the city as well. He provided a wealth of information about the Netherlands, its history and how it developed. We enjoyed this tour to the utmost and would highly recommend it.
Jackie PrawUnited States
One of the best days of our entire trip was the day visiting the countryside with Frank. He is knowledgeable, kind, patient and immediately keys into what's important to the visitor and makes sure to focus attention to that. I HIGHLY recommend Frank and will recommend him to anyone I know visiting Amsterdam.
Sue WeiermanUnited States
Since we had gone on a tour with Frank to Bruges already, we knew we had the best tour guide ever, and just allowed him to plan our day. It was a soaking rainy day, but my sister and I had a super time seeing the villages, riding the ferry, going to the cheese factory, and climbing a windmill. Frank is prompt, fun, informative,and courteous. We learned tons about the Dutch and the dams, and we enjoyed our experiences immensely. If you are fortunate, you will hire Frank!

Frank did an excellent job. We had basically 7 hours to see the Netherlands Countryside. We saw all we wanted to see. He was prompt, extremely knowledgeable and just very nice. He knows this area. It was a great private tour and a wonderful day full of surprises. It was beyond what we expected. Would take a tour with Frank /Tours by Locals again
Peter BrautigamUnited States
Frank is wonderful. We had 8 hours with him and he showed us so much and exactly what we wanted to see. My wife and I highly recommend him for his knowledge and interest in showing the beautiful villages north of Amsterdam.

He took us to the flower auction, to see windmills, two fishing villages, had a great place picked out for lunch, wooden shoes, cheese and more. We were so happy at the end of the day - he did an amazing job!!! Would totally use him again. I could of never seen or planned what he showed us in one day!!!!
Richard BinfordUnited States
Our guide Frank was wonderful. He showed up early each day, took us to interesting places in addition to those we asked to see, and answered our questions with a great deal of knowledge. He also paced the tours so as not to tire us 70 pluses. Excellent, 5 out of 5.
Michael WongHonolulu, HI, United States
Frank was an excellent tour guide. He was friendly and very easy to work with. The 6 members in our group throughly enjoyed the 8 hour tour of Amsterdam, Valendam, Markem and the country side. Frank was very knowledgeable and provided us with a pleasant excursion that gave us some history and insight in the Dutch way of living. He was flexible and adjusted our tour schedule to accommodate a last minute request from the group. I would recommend Frank to my friends and acquaintances with no reservations.
Michael McCluskeyUnited States
This was a fun tour and great way to see the lovely countryside in the Netherlands. Frank is a great guide and he has a very easy going way about him, which works well for a guide. You will get to see wind mills, smaller villages, beautiful farms, wooden shoes being made (they are very comfortable!), and a boat ride. I highly recommend.

Samir PatelUnited States
Frank really made our trip to Amsterdam. He was informative, accommodating and fun. The Dutch Icons tour is a great way to thoroughly understand the unique culture of the Netherlands. Frank made sure that after the tour you could be able to explain the rich history, from windmills to dikes, as well as have an appreciation for the beautiful countryside. We would highly recommend Frank and the Dutch Icons tour! There are not many tour guides as outstanding as he is.
Frank is perfect and friendly tour guide. He gives us a complete overview of places we were visitng. Greaf flexibility for our new change and time. A very easy to work with to meet our needs. He makes our trip very impressive and excellently organized our plan。 We enjoyed our time in Netherland with his tour . We were able to visit places within our limited short time at Netherlands. He is also helpful and giving us hands eg taking pictures and taking care of our belongings well. Professional and flexibl

Frank was on time at our hotel. We drove in a nice car from Amsterdam and had a quick tour of the big city on our way out. We saw how wooden shoes were made at Zaanse Schans, and also learned about Dutch cheese. Drove through the scenic Beemster polder. Saw a windmill's inner workings at Schermerhorn...very interesting! Visited Edam-Volendam area and then took a boat on the (old) Zuiderzee. Pancake lunch at Marken...delicious! Later, had Dutch apple pie and cappuccino at Broek. Outstanding tour by Frank!!
Nancy CameronUnited States
Frank's tour north of Amsterdam was wonderful. It was well planned and left plenty of time for eating, shopping and discussion. Frank sets the standard for a quality tour. We will be reconnecting with him next spring to see the tulips!! Thanks frank.
Harriet LifshutzUnited States
Frank was well informed, got a lot of area covered in the time we had, and was a pleasure to spend time with. He gave the necessary information plus much more and showed us some areas off the beaten track which gave us a good overview of Holland. We highly recommend him as a tour guide.

Frank was excellent in every way!!!
Douglas Allison (Al) MacLeanCanada
This was our first of several tours booked with ToursByLocals. It was a great start to our vacation. On a scale of 1-10, Frank is a 10. He is detailed in his approach yet very relaxed and composed from start to finish. He gave us a great overview of life in Amsterdam and area. Frank was especially adept at answering the various questions fom our group of 4. It was more like having a friend being your tour guide. The group felt up-lifted upon arrival back at our hotel. We would recommend him to any one!
Frank was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. We were a party of 9 with the oldest being 84 and he was very accommodating. He went out of his way to make sure our tour was enjoyable. He even went to the trouble of making sure we knew what pier our river cruise was leaving from the next day. We would not hesitate to use his services again and recommend him highly. Thanks again Frank for all your services. We had a wonderful day out with you. Brent & Linda
