Saundra Andringa-MeuerUnited States
Rene was an incredible tour guide for my grandparents and I. 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. He also found our family's crest dating back from the 1800's, another irreplaceable memory. He had a wealth of knowledge on any topic we were curious about.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Saundra, your granddad really liked to come back to where your family came from, that was obvious. Tell your friends and family and come back again with more relatives! Best regards, Rene

A knowledgeable guide who adapts tour to your requests. Great info on history and medicine in the 18th century but also great at picking lunch spots. I'd do another tour with Rene...oh, I just did...next time I'm in the neighborhood.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Albert, come again some time.

What a fantastic day we had with Rene. We saw things that I doubt we would have seen otherwise. He customized the tour for us, including items that we wanted to see. He even stopped so I could take a picture of a Friesian mare and her foal. Our friends loved the tour as well. What a delight and so good for my husband who is hard of hearing.

René was great. He took us out of Amsterdam and showed us the countryside of the neighboring region in Freeseland. We even went on a canal boat ride. Our service by ToursByLocals was fabulous and will definitely use on our next trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Carol, this boatride in Giet hoorn was real special, eh ?
