ROCKSTAR! Walda IS the Rolls-Royce of guides. Curating a museum requires a mix of acting, knowledge, and teaching skills. Walda was able to captivate my family and make us want to learn more. She loves her job and has an art history background that she is willing to share with other people. If you plan to visit museums, (or just like to have everything done flawlessly) then treat yourself to the best experience you can and utilize her services .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks and greetings from your personal Rolls-Royce Rockstar, Walda

Walda became like a member of our extended family. By having on multiple tours on successive days allowed she and to meld as a team
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul, great to hear that you consider me a member of your family. We have one more day and I'm sure I'm going to miss you after our three tours! Walda

A tranquil and personal canal cruise on a beautiful saloon boat. Walter was very friendly and we had terrific views of beautiful Amsterdam. Thank you Walda and Walter.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Everyone loves the private canal cruise on the 1922 salon boat, best way to see Amsterdam! Glad you liked it, Walda
Annette LipkinUnited States
Walda was my first experience with tours by locals. She was friendly, helpful, accommodating, and informative. I informed Walda of the things I wanted to do and she planned the day for me. Being with Walda was like being with a friend, it was a very enjoyable and comfortable experience. She walked with me at my pace and made an unfamiliar city like Amsterdam enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear Annette, you are a brave lady, travelling all by yourself. I was happy to share my love for classical music and art and culture with you and to help you getting around in Amsterdam. The lunch concert was great, wasn't it? Your friend Walda
Stan SalusUnited States
Walda is wonderful. She is a true art historian and we can't say enough good things about her, as a general tour guide of Amsterdam and a very knowledgeable art historian. We learned a lot from her and enjoyed her explanations of art and Amsterdam history. Her English is excellent and her demeanor is warm, engaging and charming. We couldn't have asked for more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stan and Caryn, you make me blush! Thank you for your kind words. It was my pleasure doing two museum tours with you in Amsterdam. Happy to hear you appreciate my expertise. Warmly, Walda
Eric WallioenUnited States
Walda made the museum tour fun for the family by telling us all the secret stories many paintings have. It was like a Dan Brown novel! We would surely call her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Eric, I knew you would like my stories! Come again and I'll tell you some more secrets. But facts only, promissed! Hopefully Dan Brown's next novel is about the Rijksmuseum, wouldn't that be fun? Warm regards, Walda
Ann Elise S.United States
Walda was a great guide! She was a wonderful addition to our project while I was in Amsterdam, and, she went way beyond what was asked of her. She knows her facts and is a fantastic people person. Highly recommended :-)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Dana, it was wonderful working with you and to be part of Brian's art project. Hopefully we can meet again, maybe when the kickoff of all this starts? Love your work, especially your people and architecture photography! Regards, Walda
James SinnemaUnited States
Nice safe and informative ride on the canals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sinnema family! Thank you for your 5 star reviews! Glad that EVERYONE, young and old, enjoyed the tour in the Anne Frank House, our private canal cruise on the saloon boat and the Rijksmuseum. Good luck finding your Dutch roots in Holland! Warm regards, Walda
Walda was patient and kind with our dinner arrangements on the busy, and hectic, King's Day holiday. She was on-time to our meeting point, knowledgable of the local culture and wonderful to have an evening of conversation with during our stay in Amsterdam. It was a lovely evening during our short holiday in Holland and I would highly recommend this opportunity to spend some time getting to know, personally, the people of Holland!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Jean, for your kind comment. It was a lovely evening, I enjoyed talking to you and your parents, all dressed up for King's Day. Glad that I could give you some insight information, in a restaurant close to my mother's birthplace and your hotel. My best to you and your parents, Walda

We had the pleasure of having Walda as our guide for two days in Amsterdam with an open itinerary. She is a teacher specializing in art history. So if you want to experience the museums (especially the Van Gogh exhibit) in a way that is both enlightening and fun, don't hesitate to hire Walda. She is also a perfect driver and with a rental car can show you the countryside. She is witty, speaks perfect English and was a delight to have accompanying us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yes, we had two lovely days together, I agree! You were perfect 'students' and we did have some laughs, didn't we? Thanks for the mustard soup (made with mustard by the local windmill) and the 5 star ratings! Hugs, Walda
