Rene was prompt and showed us things we had not seen before. We had our granddaughters on their first trip to Europe and he gave them a great introduction. Do be firm about the about of walking you want to do. Due to parking problems in Amsterdam, things can be quite far away. Overall, he was a wonderful guide!!

Tour: #5424, Amsterdam layover tour with Mercedes van and private guide., Amsterdam, Netherlands    
Date: Apr 30/17

Our riverboat cruise ended at a remote dock, quite a distance from the usual riverboat docking area. Rene was right there to meet us in a nice, clean Mercedes-Benz van. He provided an excellent city tour, dropping us for a 1 hour canal boat ride, and delivered us at the airport for our afternoon flight out of Amsterdam. All went smoothly for a pleasant experience. Recommended!

Rene was very accommodating towards my disabilities. Besides driving me around the city he was able to take me for a short walk to very interesting places and told me stories that I will find useful to know about the art, the politics and history of past times. I felt I had a successful short visit to Amsterdam. He took me to a canal tour boat that I also very much enjoyed. He even took me to a cafe for a cup of tea to show me the inside of a building.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ruth, tell your friends !

The guide was ready, waiting on us as planned and drove us around town in his nice, spacious car. He was most informative and jovial. We enjoyed seeing and experiencing many highlights of this lovely city. By far a great tour beats sitting around the airport during our long layover!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Donna, Thanks for enduring the snow and your nice comment. Tell your friends ! Rene

We covered a lot of ground with Rene in the short amount of time we had available to visit. Rene is very knowledgeable about everything from the country's history to the inner workings of windmills and he patiently answered all of our questions and indeed taught us a great deal. We enjoyed the local fare and had a pleasant drive through the city and the countryside. Thank you for also looking up my family's hometown!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Bonnie, we had a lovely day together, tell your friends !

We arrived from Miami, and met our guide Rene S who took us on a delightful tour of Amsterdam and the countryside. We saw the city from A to Z..... the flower mart, the Red Light District. (yes! the windows were open, and girls were there waiting for business...... at 9:30 in the morning!). After an intense, auto, walking tour, we went on a canal ride, which gave a totally different perspective of this lovely city. Rene delivered what he promised and more. There is no doubt that this tour was FIVE Stars.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Eugene, tell your friends !

This tour was absolutely fantastic! Rene was wonderful!!!!! He was fun and full of information and stories that made Amersterdam come alive for us. We had a very limited amount of time to spend but Rene made the most of every minute, giving us a fabulous cross section so at least we got a good idea of the city, its history and some of the highlights. We are so glad we did this and would recommend the tour and Rene highly to anyone considering it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Linda, it was a nice way of spending a Sunday morning.

Rene was very professional but also relaxed, and able to answer all our questions clearly. We really enjoyed our tour and saw parts of Amsterdam we would never have seen otherwise, during our short stay. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Very limited information was given during the tour

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm sorry Julia did not enjoy my tour - I've done the same tour with other travellers who gave me a 5 star rating. Since her husband slept most of the tour, I wasn't sure about how much to talk. On top of that she changed hotels without letting me know, so I was waiting on the wrong address.

Disappointing tour...Rene seemed bored and was not enthusiastic.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: 2 ladies, arriving 2 hours late, talking Farsi continuously, paying no attention to my explanations, wanting to see tulips in the winter, etc.etc and than this comment ?

Rene was wonderful. Efficient but not rushed, he adopted well to the interests and abilities of my family (my mother recently broke her leg, and so has limited mobility). He's very knowledgeable. When he didn't know something, he was willing to speculate, which made things fun and conversational. He sensed when to let us look at things ourselves, and when to point something out.
