Jolijn was the best guide ever.... On time- easy to talk to- very knowledgeable in the Amsterdam and surrounding area. After an hour with her you fell like you have known her forever. She goes way out of her way to make sure you are enjoying yourself and seeing the sights you want to see. She is always asking if the pace of travel is ok and will change the tour to meet you abilities. I liked her so much she has an open invitiaion to visit me in the USA for her own personal tour anytime. Great lady.

Absolutely wonderful tour of the countryside outside of Amsterdam. Jolijn was a wonderful guide. We enjoyed her commentary of the beautiful sites we saw. We highly recommend her.

The Keukenhof Gardens are spectacular and Jolijn made our experience even more interesting by adding unique facts about the Gardens and the tulip industry. She was able to help us avoid the crowds and see some of the more unique parts of the gardens. We were traveling with my cousin and her husband from Minnesota-she is a gardener so she expected this to be the highlight of her trip and Jolijn made sure that was the case!

Jolijn was an outstanding guide. We learned about Dutch history, geography, and culture while seeing the beautiful countryside and Keukenhof Gardens. It was a highlight of our trip.

Jolijn is an exceptional tour guide. She is knowledgable, friendly and fun! Jolijn graciously picked us and our luggage up at our apartment and at the the end of a delightful tour of spectacular Keukenhof Gardens dropped us off at the train station. Just couldn't have been easier!

What a spectacular tour. Jolijn was knowledgeable about the Keukenhof gardens and the surrounding areas. She was also very accommodating as she waited for me to take pictures. She also drove me around to see beautiful fields of tulips.Thank you!!!!!!!!
Paula DavisUnited States
Jolijn was incredible. She was friendly, punctual, and extremely accommodating. In addition to showing us the places on our tour, she went out of her way to show us a tulip field in bloom. My husband commented that she was the best driver he has ever seen. We had a wonderful day! Thank you for the memorable experience.

We had a beautiful tour of the Keukenhof flower fields, followed by a drive through some small villages north of Amsterdam. Jolijn was engaging and informative. Our conversations ranged from the financial bubble in tulip bulbs in the 1600's to the history and methods employed in the Netherlands to claim land lying below sea level, with some of the history of founding of the Netherlands by merchants instead of royalty thrown into the mix. Jolijn speaks very clear English and did a terrific job.

We are avid photographers and wanted more than a run of the mill half day visit to the Kuekenof Gardens. Jolijn is a delightful person who shared an incredible amount of information about Amsterdam and Holland from both a historical and contemporary perspective. We appreciated her patience and warm hospitality which made us feel welcome. We will definitely seek out her services when we return to the Netherlands.

We truly enjoyed our tour of Keukenhof with Jolijn. Not only did she provide insightful details about the garden, she also told us more about the Dutch culture. We also took a short tour of Haarlem and found it so charming we asked her to drop us off there instead of returning us to Amsterdam. What a great place to have lunch on the plaza and tour the church. It was a very memorable day. We would highly recommend Jolijn as your guide to Holland!!

Jolijn was a wonderful guide for the Keukenhof trip. Her car was clean and spacious and she is a safe driver. She rated her English as "advanced", but I would say she is fluent. We talked about a lot more than flowers and the Netherlands and never had any difficulty communicating. She even stopped at our request at a small cafe for a bite before we returned to the hotel. It was a wonderful visit with new friend in Holland.

Jolijn is amazing! She is knowledgable, fun, and made our tour to the Keukenhof flower fields soooo much better than a large group tour. She accommodated our early morning start and picked us up in her roomy, clean car. She drove on a lovely side route that avoided a traffic jam, took us to a less-busy entrance and let us go at our own easy pace (which is not very fast, given that we have a 2-year old.) Jolijn was generous with her time and even added a small town tour. Book with her!
