Rene was an incredible tour guide for my grandparents and I. He took us from Amsterdam to Bolsward and another day to Delft, stopping all along the way at points of interest for us. My great grandfather, Cornelis Andringa, was a Frieslander, so the amount of research Rene did before the tour on our behalf really made the trip special for us. He found the port that my grandfathers father left from to sail to Ellis Island, something we could never have done without him.

We were a group of 6 who had the pleasure of spending an entire day with Rene as he guided us to and through some of the Netherlands most historical, famous, architecturally beautiful plazas, buildings, cities, and cultural sites. He is a consummate professional, with an amazing depth of knowledge, coupled with a personal style that made each of us feel at ease and most welcomed to ask questions and make the most of Rene's presence.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Maryann, we had a nice day together, tell your friends!

Can't complain about what we saw on the tour & he was a good driver however he wasn't engaging as a guide & just seemed to be going through the motions as if he was bored.

A great tour by Rene. He was very knowledgeable, relaxed and calm through terrible traffic. It was a full day and we saw many interesting sights. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wanted to see so much in just one long day!

(Two senior couples adding this tour to a cruise starting in Amsterdam). Could not have been more enjoyable. Rene is relaxed, a great conversationalist and managed to squeeze an amazing amount of info and detail in the short time we had with him Only disappointment was the how fast the hours passed! Loved the Hague and Delft. Would book with Rene again in a heartbeat!

Excellent English, Excellent vehicle, Prompt, Professional, not strong in art knowledge, could have done more homework in advance on the route to avoid some wrong turns.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Phillip, My GPS told me to take that particular route, blame it on the machine! You are right, I am not a specialist in modern art. My expertise is 17th century Dutch paintings. I'll be glad to give you a guided tour of our Rijksmuseum the next time you come to Amsterdam. Best regards, Rene

We really enjoyed our tour with Rene - he did a great job finding the lesser known and less touristy places that were still very interesting and gave us a great overview of the area. Highly recommend.

Rene was very informative and pleasant. He took us on a History tour as well as the City of Delft tour we had requested. He had us eating raw herring, which was a lovely new experience. We visited a cheese farm and had lunch on a boat in one of the canals. It was a wonderful experience. It was well worth the personalized tour for the cost. Thank you, Rene. The Dawkins Family

Rene not only met us at our boat, he came on board to assist us with our timely departure in his comfortable sedan. Rene has a wealth of knowledge and answered questions before we even asked. Delft was a highlight of our entire trip. Since Delft is his home town, he knew many interesting stories to add to our pleasure. Kinderdike was another favorite stop. I wholeheartedly recommend this trip and especially this personable guide to any travelers hoping to get the inside scoop about the Netherlands.

It was such a pleasure to have Rene as our tour guide of South Holland. Thanks to him we were able to see lots of different sights in just one day. The trip to Kinderdijk was like taking a step back in time; the Mesdag panorama was an unexpected treasure; enjoyed hearing stories of The Hague and the role it plays in the world; can't wait to get our souvenirs from the Delft factory. We would highly recommend Rene as your guide!

We would rate the tour 5 stars. Renee was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable. We changes his itinerary a bit and he did it with great skill and understanding. We wanted to see a bit of Amsterdam before heading to the countryside and by the time we were ready to leave Amsterdam, he had given us the lay of the land. We saw Rotterdam and Delft, did some simple shopping and talked the whole way back. A really good day os seeing and learning. If you can book him, do so.

René was both polite & helpful. He was an excellent guide. With him, we managed to cover many of the high points near Amsterdan, like Kinderjik, Delft , Hague & Rotterdam ,we saw many lovely areas that were historically significant. He did an excellent job and I would strongly recommend him. He has a great vehicle which made our 9hours journey so comfortable. The day was great not only because of the sites but also because of René. Ligia Occhini

We are extremely please with Rene. Not only is he knowledgeable on matters of Dutch history and culture, he is widely read and has an excellent knowledge of American culture and social issues. our conversations during the car ride are as interesting as the tours. We recommend him without reservations.

An EXCELLENT tour! We had a most pleasant day with Rene. He accommodated our wishes to visit Madurodam and still completed all of the tour itinerary. We enjoyed all of the venues chosen, particularly the Panorama Mesdaq and Madurodam. Delft, for lunch, was ideal. Rene's pleasant demeanour and wealth of knowledge made for a most memorable day. It was definitely one of the highlights of our vacation. Even the clouds and showers couldn't dampen our enjoyment of this day. Thank you Rene!

Rene was terrific. Because of changes in other aspects of our trip, we made changes in the tour with Rene several times. He was responsive and flexible. He accommodated a last minute wish list item in Amsterdam and gave us an excellent tour of Kinderdjik, The Hague, Delft and Rotterdam. I highly recommend this tour and this guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Shelley, tell your friends. I hope to see you again sometime in The Netherlands. Best regards, Rene

As a first time visitor to the Netherlands and a first time Tours by Local user I was not sure what to expect, but the day of our tour couldn't ask for much more beautiful weather, a great personable/intelligent/accommodating tour guide!

Rene was thoughtful and considerate. He kept us on track so we could see everything possible, but never made us feel rushed. He gave us plenty of time to absorb what we were seeing and we were never hurried to make a decision while shopping for souvenirs. His commentary of the sights always provided insight and little known facts. I highly recommend a tour with Rene.

Excellent tour. Loved every second of it. My fault, a little too short. Would have liked to have seen a little more of Amsterdam, which I thought was to replace Rotterdam?
