Definitely 5 stars! I love Tours by Locals because of tour guides like Eric. He was so flexible. I say, "I've always wanted to see a castle" and BOMB! He pulls up to a REAL medieval castle. Loved loved our time with him, his knowledge. My hubby's favorite were the windmills dating 400 years. Such unique history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you MaryAnn, Hope you are having a great time in Italy!

Eric did an outstanding job of communicating and making our tour fantastic. He connected by email before we arrived, so he had idea of what we would want to see. During the tour, he was also able to deviate from our initial plan when we had interests in the North Sea, we traveled to several spots not regularly visited by tourists. This made our tour exceptional. He was so easy to talk to and had such great insight into the community and culture. I highly recommend his talents. Great guide and person.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much William, it has been a pleasure to me!
Maria J WrightUnited States
Eric was wonderful! Because of Hurricane Irma disrupting family travel plans we were four instead of the original two. Eric could not have been nicer and most accommodating. He changed the order of the tour and did everything he could to make sure we enjoyed it. His car was very comfortable and he was informed and spoke very good English. He didn't charge us extra for the additional two passengers and was a most charming and delightful guide. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Maria, it was a pleasure to be your guide!

THe best of our European Tour. Eric is reliable & knowledgeable. He arrived earlier at the designated place. In our short stay of 8 hours, we had unforgettable tour of the city of Rotterdam, he arranged a private River Canal tour for 10 in an authentic 100-year-old Vintage boat (Excellent!), City Tour of Amsterdam and Museum (Beautiful!), Visit the 375 year old Windmills (Unforgettable!) , Visit Leidschemdam, Rembrandt's Office, and the beautiful Bridge(Awesome). Champagne at the end was Big Suprise!

A world of thanks to Eric N. for a fantastic tour of Amsterdam and its surroundings. He considered my email requests prior to our visit and incorporated everything beautifully into our tour. His Lexus was luxurious and very comfortable for our 5+ hour tour. Eric was totally engaging in conversation ranging from The Netherlands' history to current political/social/economic issues. I highly recommend Eric's tours to anyone visiting Amsterdam/The Netherlands. Thanks! Terri & Howard Fuhrman
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your positive feedback, Terri and Howard!!

Jodi ChuUnited States
We spent two full days with Eric on our recent trip to Amsterdam and couldn't have been happier with our tours. Eric was very flexible with a last minute schedule change and even offered to pick us up at the airport so we could arrive on time to a museum tour. He went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and happy. He created two very informative and interesting days for us and his insights were great. Would highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, I have enjoyed your company tremendously, you have been great guests!
Gayle WennUnited States
Eric: Is an awesome tour guide. He met us quite promptly at our ship and we sped off in his luxury car to see Rotterdam. His knowledge is very good and he is quite the gentleman and is always ready to accommodate. He will make sure that you have the tour you expected. We spent time in Delft visiting the Old Church, Neuwe Church, Old Eastern Gate, canals, Delft City Hall, The Hague and just walking around different parts of the city... lovely day ending in Delfshaven for lunch. Thanks, Eric for A+
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Barry and Gayle, you where great company!
Susan TalfordUnited States
Outstanding day! Eric was the consummate host in our 8-hour tour with highlights of the Netherlands. The Keukenhof Gardens were beautiful...and Eric's commentary throughout the day was informative, personable and enthusiastic. We only wish we could have a guide like Eric wherever we went. Eric was especially patient with my 90-year parents and was extremely helpful with their special needs. Thank you Eric for a day that will have lots of special memories!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, you have been great company and I have enjoyed the day as much as you did!

Thank you so much for taking us on a tulip tour. Your knowledge of the area and your ability to work with our time restraints was excellent. We will definitely recommend you for anyone coming to Amsterdam Thanks again Gwen and Neil
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gwen and Neil, It was a pleasure to have you 'aboard'. Thank you again for choosing me as your guide! Eric
Michael FontaineUnited States
Superlatives are not adequate to describe how outstanding Eric is and how excellent this tour was. Eric anticipated all our needs including pre-booking busy sites so we did not have to wait in line. Additionally, he planned our visits to arrive prior to the tour buses avoiding the crowds. And miraculously, he was able to find a glove that was thought to be "lost". Amazing! Whenever we're back in the Netherlands, we shall indeed retain his services again He's brilliant.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Michael and Rebecca!
