Elke is a true 5-star guide! We had a wonderful visit to the types of areas we requested and especially enjoyed the local windmill visit and talk with the miller. Elke is a superior guide. Thanks to her for a terrific day!

Elke was everything we could have wanted : informed, kind, articulate, prompt and well organized. The car was quiet, comfortable and I could hear everything in the back seat while traveling.

Off the beaten track - and it was perfect. We did to want to join thousands of people amongst the tens of thousands of tourists and we did want to hear more and experience more about Netherlands without the 'tourist traps". Elke knew the authentic and quiet places to take us - and her tour was a highlight of our trip. It was worth the day and the cost!

Elke exceeded our family's expectations by going well beyond the call of duty. She was responsive, accommodating of our special requests, and ensured that we did everything and more in Amsterdam. Elke is a rock star tour guide, and one that we would highly recommend without any reservation. You could not be in any better hands.

Elke provided us with a tour in the countryside near Amsterdam! We saw flowers, polders, windmills, lovely villages, a beautiful church and enjoyed a superior dinner in a country restaurant. It was a side of The Netherlands so very different from the city of Amsterdam. Thank you Elke for the unforgettable tour you gave us!

Tour: Customized tour to the North Holland, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Date: Apr 28/17

Elke was an outstanding tour guide. For one and a half days, she guided us around the area North of Amsterdam. She expertly explained detailed information about all of the places we visited from magnificent fields of tulips, small towns, the North Sea area, and much more. It was lovely to visit an area where there were fewer tourist crowds than we experienced in other areas before touring with her. We thoroughly enjoyed our tours and she made our experience really memorable. We'd recommend her to others.

Elke did a great job finding just what we were looking for. We saw things we would never have found on our own, and we must have asked Elke 200 questions (she had the answers)! Elke really knew her history of the country as well, and it was a very fun day spent with a very nice person!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Charles and Debb. Thank you very much! I can really use some good rating since i am still rather new to toursbylocals. I had a lovely time with you and learnd a lot as well. I hope you have a very nice time the rest of your vacation. Gr Elke

The four of us loved our day with Elke. Her tour was exactly what we hoped for. We wanted to see the vast bright flower fields and charming villages that were "off the beaten path." She is Dutch by birth and knew exactly where to take us. We were delighted with the vistas of blossoms and old windmills. Elke is easy to be with, pleasant, knowledgeable, and a safe driver. She brought along snacks, plus hot and cold drinks for us. The restaurants she suggested were excellent. Thank you, Elke!

Tour: Transit tour. Van Gogh and Highlights, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Date: Nov 12/16

Though this was a lighting tour it was delightful due to our wonderful guide Elke. Despite the short notice she planned a very good tour of Amsterdam for us. Elke assisted in getting us the Van Gog Museum tickets so there was hardly any waiting. She also made a special effort in arranging for some cookies and drinks when we landed in Amsterdam. This was wonderful as we had not had lunch. Such extra effort is what makes Elke a preferred guide. I recommend her to anyone interested in a tour of Amsterdam.
