Yvonne is a delightful guide. Her introduction to Amsterdam on my first short visit was very interesting and thoughtfully tailored to my interests and the time available. She introduced me to many small details and hidden treasures that I would not have found on my own. We had a thoroughly enjoyable walk around the city - in spite of the bad weather!

Our tour with Yvonne was outstanding! Yvonne met us at the airport and took us by train to Amsterdam (that in itself would have taking us ten times longer to figure out!) Yvonne's tour was informative, interesting, and personalized. We were able to see all the major highlights during our walking tour and stop for a snack/coffee when needed. Yvonne is warm, charming, professional and speaks perfect English. We highly recommend Yvonne for any type of tour. ~Lisa & John T., Seattle, WA

Yvonne met us at the airport and we went by train to downtown Amsterdam for a very nice informative and knowledgeable walking tour. We saw many interesting buildings, areas, and businesses. Yvonne was very personable and a pleasure to have as a guide. We stopped for coffee because it was so cold, and we were a little slow walking and taking pictures. I know she had more to show us, but time was a limiting factor (back to catch a plane). I would certainly do it again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Judy! I admire you did this tour after an overnight flight and as I told you: take as many pictures as you like. We did the route I had planned and together we adapted the tour to the cold weather with a coffee stop and we got to see a Delft Blue painter at work. There is always more to show and to experience in Amsterdam, so I hope to see you again in future. Best regards, Yvonne

Yvonne did an excellent tour for us in Amsterdam! We enjoyed the sights and the afternoon...wish we had seen the Anne Frank house...but the tickets were sold out...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I have also enjoyed doing a tour with you, Dough, Sheryl, Tim and Joe. I was surprised and impressed by receiving the magazine of Mother Teresa because you had read in my profile that I had worked in one of her houses. Thank you for booking a tour with me. Hope to see you again in Amsterdam for visiting the Anne Frank house outside the holiday season.

We discovered ToursByLocals and were we ever fortunate to have Yvonne as our guide. We stressed that we didn't really want the typical touristy stuff. The entire tour was as if we met a long time friend who was taking us to see her favourite parts of the city. We can't express enough, how relaxed and comfortable we were the entire time. We got to see all that we wanted to see and then some, we had an enjoyable visit over lunch and the open boat canal cruise was the perfect end to the day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Shirley and Rand, I have also spent a very enjoyable and relaxed afternoon with you. For me a tour is successful if you have had a good time. I hope to meet you again in future to show you more of Amsterdam! Best regards, Yvonne
Matthew WrightUnited States
We had a wonderful tour with Yvonne. She informed us of problems with the trains and gave us an alternate transportation option and meeting point. She was very flexible with our needs as we had two kids that were jet lagged, and werent up to walking as much as we had planned. Yvonne gave us a tour that was interesting both for the adults and the kids, and was very warm and friendly. Thank you, Yvonne!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am happy that you have had a wonderful tour with me, thank you for your beautiful review Matthew! I have enjoyed spending time with you, Laura, Diego and Lucas. Hope to see you back in future!

Well thought and planed to satisfy customer's needs. What special of Yvonne is that she has very good human touch. We are very happy of her tour, and will recommend to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the nice review Weizhen! For me it was special to do a bilingual tour, I liked it. Nice you wanted to taste so many different types of our local food! All the best, Yvonne
Andrea GluckUnited States
Yvonne was good. Very nice and knowledgeable and willing to show us whatever we wanted to see. Flexible. I would definitely recommend her to others.

I had a three hour tour of Amsterdam while I had a layover on the way to Russia. Yvonne was perfect. By the time it was all over, I felt like I had made a friend. She was so personable and knowledgeable about the city. She made the best of my limited time in a city I had always wanted to visit and certainly knew her way around. She tailored the tour to meet my time table. It was an awesome experience and If I am ever in Amsterdam again, I will try to get her. Thanks for a great time! Very educational.
