Six years ago I visited Amsterdam for the first time and Frank was my tour guide for several bike tours. He was so knowledgeable, so attentive, so well organized, so interesting, and so pleasant to be with, along with having a wonderful manner and sense of humor that when I visited Amsterdam again earlier this month this year, I made sure to book my tours with Frank. On this recent trip, I took my nephew with me and he and Frank got along famously. Frank is the best tour guide I've ever had.

He knew we wanted to see the highlights of Amsterdam with the focus on Rembrandt and his works on display throughout the city. He met and exceeded our requests and expectations.

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.

We can not say enough good things about Frank. He made our entire day a delight. We started early at the flower auction. Which we highly recommend. It was our 10 year old's favorite part of the day. From there we enjoyed Kuekenhof where Frank guided us through the garden. On to the seaside village of Marken for lunch and see wooden shoes being made. And we ended the day at a cheese farm. Frank is an excellent guide. Book him if you can.

My wife and I booked this tour as an introduction to Amsterdam on the first full day in the Netherlands. Frank greeted us at our hotel promptly. He had layed out an itinerary for a 3.5 to 4 hour walk. We covered a great deal of area because we said that we could walk as quickly as he would like. Frank provided a comprehensive narrative of the history (geographic, artistic, cultural, hydrological, religious, social) of this fascinating city. Tram riding and pedestrian/bike safety included. A great tour.

Frank led our group for a tour of key sites in the city the first day we arrived in Amsterdam. He was very informative about the various sites, and had a deep knowledgeable without coming across as having "programmed" answers. We had a group of 11 travelers who peppered him with questions, and he always had thoughtful answers, and with a bit of humor. His English is excellent. It was a perfect way to get oriented to Amsterdam, which helped as we had free time over the next few days to explore on our own.

Frank provided an interesting and in-depth walking tour of Amsterdam for our group of 6. The overview he gave in the Rijksmuseum provided most of us with what we needed to see, but as he took us there near the end of the day, those who wanted more had additional time to explore on their own. We learned many new things, and Frank was more than able to answer all the varied questions we threw at him. The pace was just right.

He emailed me the day the Anne Frank tickets went on sale because he knew my family wanted to do that (not on his tour) and it was the only reason we were able to obtain advance tickets.

He gave us enough time to walk around, eat good Dutch delicacy ( the fresh herring was yummy), and take lots of pictures.

We just had a fantastic full day tour of Amsterdam with Frank. We give the highest rating, 5 out of 5 stars. He is extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with. He used our time together incredible well and had great suggestions for lunch and dinner. He gave us great advice for the rest of our time in the city: day trips, choice of transportation, places to eat. We highly recommend Frank as a tour guide. Elizabeth and Joel Baker

Awesome tour....would do again. We took a tour from Frank in 2011 and liked it so much, we used him again when we were in Amsterdam again. Frank is very knowledgable, but also knows how to make it fun. He was great with our teenage boys and also my parents, so any age would love him.

Frank picked us up at the hotel at the agreed upon time with water and OJ. He had the day completely planned according to what we decided at time of booking. He was very informative. 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!!!!

Frank provided us with an exceptional experience while in Amsterdam. We were a group of 6 ranging in age from 28-64 and he kept us ALL engaged and enlightened about this wonderful city. Additionally, Frank communicated with me on several occasions prior to our trip regarding museum recommendations and requirements and he was kind enough to make reservations at two outstanding restaurants. It was obvious he loves his city and his job. He also gave us tips on canal cruises, tram usage and markets.

Frank did such a great job with our ancestor tour words cannot truly provide a just description. Frank's research, planning and organizing skills provided a day filled with truly picturesque sites, history some adventure and intrigue, with the outcome extending my family's historical knowledge much farther than I could have done on my own. Fantastic tour!!!

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.

Frank was our guide for four full days in the Netherlands and Belgium. It is not possible to do justice to the excellence of Frank's expertise, perfect driving, kindness, and professionalism balanced with warmth and humor. Every person in our group of 8 would say he is simply the best guide imaginable! To book a guide for this extended period is taking a chance, and how thankful we are to have taken this chance and had Frank guide us! William and Mary, Knoxville, TN

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.

When you only have a few hours of layover and wish to explore a local city, the absolute best way to do this is by booking the services of a local guide. Our guide met us at the airport escorted us into the city (Amsterdam) and gave us a knowledgeable and well thought out tour. His love for his city shone through and he was so personable and fun to be with - highly recommend

We took a Dutch Ancestor tour by car with Frank. He was truly amazing! He is personable, kind and fun! Frank took us to several villages connected to my family history including Akersloot, Uitgeest and Enkhuizen including an open air history museum. We visited several church cemeteries and talked with locals about where to search for a house my grandmother was born in. He is a great driver! He has so much history and information to share with you! He really does his research on your family before touring.

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.

He educated, charmed, guided and befriended us and his enthusiastic love and passion of his country, its history and its people were infectious. He made our experience so much more meaningful, informative and unique that we are truly indebted to him. We strongly recommend him for any of his tours.

You could not imagine a better tour guide than Frank K. He is extremely knowledgeable, has a great sense of humor, understands his clients and tailors the tours to meet their needs and interests. He was full of surprises for us with gifts to help us remember the Netherlands. I have had many, many tour guides over the past 25 years and Frank is now at the top of my list as the best that you can have. I feel as if I have made a friend as well. Frank is a winner!!!!
