Terrific day in Amsterdam with knowledgeable Renee. Second tour with him, as good as the first. Either tell him what you want to see and he will plan tour or simply ask what are the best things to do and see.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Paul, tell your friends and come again sometime !

Rene took us on a tour of The Hague and Delft. He was very informative and interesting and very knowledgeable about the area and the sights we visited. He was also very kind to my husband who has some mobility issues. I would highly recommend Rene. You will have a great day and a lot of fun!

We booked a custom 8 hour day tour from Amsterdam to Rotterdam, Delft and The Hague in early May with Rene. Although the weather was a bit rainy, we had a wonderful day and a great tour! Rene was a very knowledgeable guide, we enjoyed our day so much we were sorry to see it end. I would highly recommend Rene if you are planning a tour in the Netherlands.

The Tulip gardens were spectacular.... certainly the best time to be there. The convenience of being in a private vehicle rather than a tour bus certainly enhanced our day.

We had a lovely tour of Amsterdam with René yesterday. We were on a stopover for one night on our way to South Africa and René picked us up from our airport hotel which made things so easy for us. He took us to see the outskirts of Amsterdam first and we saw some amazing houses and traditional windmills. We then went in to the city and the tour included a canal trip too. We had our 12 year old daughter with us and René really took the time to explain all the local history to her. Thank you René.

We toured Kinderdijk and Delft with Rene (it was our choice to limit the itinerary). He picked us up at the Cruise Ship terminal in Amsterdam, and is an excellent driver in heavy weekend traffic. He handled all of the details (tickets, lunch) with ease. He's relaxed, easy to be with, and is exceptionally knowledgable. Delft is such a beautiful town, and as a resident, he knows everything. Rene has a great way of explaining what you're seeing, always with good humor and no rush. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Bruce for your comment and especially for the pictures you have send me. Tell your friends! Best regards, Rene

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.

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

We booked this tour with René because of the high ratings and positive comments we read on-line. We were not disappointed! The two hours we spent with him on the drive to and from Amsterdam to Otterlo—to visit the marvelous Kröller Müller museum and sculpture garden— were delightful. His English is perfect, and he impressed us with his wide-ranging knowledge of not only art but of the world in general; and he willingly shared his own experiences as a world traveler. We cannot recommend him highly enough!
