Wir waren zu viert auf einem Wochenendbesuch in Amsterdam und haben mit Roland die schöne Altstadt von Amsterdam kennenlernen dürfen. Roland besitzt ein profundes Wissen. Geschichtlich, kulturell und gesellschaftlich immer interessant und kurzweilig erzählt und bei seiner charmanten und freundlichen Art - und perfektem deutsch - machte es auch einfach Spaß zuzuhören. Prima Tipps für Restaurants etc. rundeten das Bild ab. Danke Roland!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sehr geehrter Herr Wegener, Vielen Dank für den schönen Morgen und diese gute Bewertung. Es hat mich richtig spaß gemacht euch in Amsterdam zu führen und bin froh das Sie die Führung auch genossen hatten. Vielen Dank und bis bald! Roland

Our day in Delft and The Hague with Roland was awesome! He met us at our flat and guided us via subway and train to Delft and then to The Hague where he shared lots of very interesting information and highlights. His pacing was perfect! He has a fantastic insight into the area and brought both cities alive for us. We learned so much from Roland and were sad when our day with him was over. My husband and I both decided that he is without a doubt, the best guide we have ever experienced!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kathy, Thank you so much for the wonderful day and this great review! I get a smile on my face remembering the daytrip to Delft and the Hague. I hope you managed to find the way to the airport on time... We bought our wedding rings and my fiancee's wedding dress this week and are counting the days… All the best Roland

Roland customised the day trip for us. Not only was he very informative about several near by rural communities (which had been inhabited by family members for generations,) he was also a great help in teaching us about the subway, bus, and ferries that were available for public transit. Because of our initial day with Roland, we were comfortable exploring the metropolitan area on our own (with his suggestions) on day two.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Flavel and Diane, Thank you so much for the wonderful review and review. It was a big pleasure to be your guide in Marken, Volendam, Edam and Amsterdam. I look forward to see you soon! Best regards, Roland

Highly recommend this tour, sadly Roland was not well, lucky he arranged for Adrie Boerefijn to take over. Superb trip, Adrie has done his research, is well informed, entertaining and flexible. Our tour was customised to accommodate our specific interests and Adrie also added his suggestions. So pleased we agreed to check out the Planetarium in Franeker, it is amazing and much more than we expected, also great little town. We learned a lot about the polders and dikes, also Dutch history. A must do tour !

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Maria, Thank you very much for your feedback and great review! I am happy for you that you had a great day with Adrie. I was not sick that day, I asked Adrie to do the tour as I am not a driver! You can also read this in my Tours By Locals profile. Would it be possible to change that in the review you wrote? I would really appreciate that. Thank you and I will inform Adrie about your feedback. Best regards, Roland

Roland was an excellent walking tour guide. He showed us wonderful sites, and shared interesting and funny stories. He is very friendly and personable. We highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Steven, It was a big pleasure showing Amsterdam to you and your wife. The rain arrived rather late today, so hopefully both of you had another great afternoon in sunny Amsterdam. Have a good visit to the Anne Frank House and have a wonderful visit to Europe. Warm regards, Roland.

Roland did a wonderful job in showing us the highlights in both museums. His knowledge of the artists and art history created the most meaningful museum experience we have ever had. As we only had a half day, he allowed us to cover the most famous and noted pieces of art in each museum. His friendly manner made us feel like we were touring with a long time friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gary, It was a great pleasure guiding you in the van Gogh and the Rijksmuseum. We definitely will make it to Chicago one day! I'd love to see the architecture from Frank Lloyd Wright. And regarding to my homework at the van Gogh museum: the book Isaiah talks about the Redeemer (or Saviour). This is what Vincent tried to say in this painting. Enjoy ancient Europe and warm regards from Amsterdam! Roland.

Roland was extremely knowledgable and had us at the museum quite early to avoid the holiday crowds. Instead of an exhaustive tour of each painting, he moved us through the museum touching on a few pieces and explained the significance of the painting and where it fit into Dutch history. It was great as a parent to put some focus into the tour without it being overwhelming. We had the opportunity in the afternoon to go back and explore more of the museum on our own. It was a great tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jim, Thank you very much for your great review. It was a great pleasure to be your private guide in the Rijksmuseum for your family. Best regards from Amsterdam, Roland
