Travelling to Leiden and The Hague with Dina was like being on holiday with an old friend -- who happened to know all the places we visited. Dina was responsive, flexible, knowledgeable, and very organised. It poured rain all day and I still thoroughly enjoyed myself. We covered much more ground than I could have by myself and although we had a very complicated itinerary, it was still very relaxed. Many thanks!

An amazing food walking journey with Dina. The best that I have ever experienced in all my travels. She brings loads of passion, energy and plenty of stories so there is never a dull moment. A genuinely warm and friendly person who tries to create an experience through your eyes as a visitor. You will find gems that you’ll want to come back to during the rest of your trip :) You won’t go wrong picking Dina as your guide.

Dina was absolutely wonderful and made sure our tour was exactly what we wanted. Dina and I communicated through email so decide what to do. Emails where answered quickly and with detail. Dina was a blast to be with all day. She made sure we send everything we wanted to and recommended some places to us. Everything about the tour was perfect and we got exactly what we requested. I would recommend Dina to anyone!

Date: Oct 2/19

Dina is a most pleasant and friendly guide with great insight into to history and social fabric of this region. This trip into Holland's past was most pleasant. It gave us a much better understanding of how the country was claimed from underwater, and all of the different ways Dutch people have used windmills throughout their history. As beautiful as Amsterdam is, it was also nice to get outside the city for a little while.

Dina is a very personable, and most knowledgeable guide to the life and works of Vincent Van Gogh. Tickets for this museum must be purchased in advance for a specific time slot. Dina took care of all of this, so it was quite convenient.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the VanGogh Museum with Dina. Two hours is a short amount of time in this museum but she made it count. Her knowledge of the periods of VanGogh's development was impressive & helped us to have a greater understanding of his genius. Would highly recommend her.

I had an absolutely wonderful, fabulous time with Dina. She took me to the places I wanted to go to. For example, The Corrie Ten Boom Museum. Places that are not well known. Places outside of Amsterdam. She answered every question I asked. Dina took me to the restaurants that serve authentic Holland food. Delicious! She also had a good sense of humor. I highly recommend Dina. If I ever have the chance to go back I would definitely choose her again. Thank you Dina! :)

Dina stepped in on short notice. She was very knowledgeable and quite fun. She did her best to keep the original tour on track but there were some weather challenges that did not allow for the tour as planned. Dina added an additional stop and took us on a bit of a walking tour. We truly appreciated the time spent with Dina.

Dina picked us up from our cruise ship in Rotterdam and drove us round trip to Amsterdam, so we could tour that city. During the drive, she explained the country's history, government, economy, etc. Once we arrived, we had a walking tour and took a canal boat tour, which I highly recommend. Dina is pleasant and extremely knowledgeable. She kept track of the time to ensure we got back to the ship in plenty of time. Thanks Dina!

The tour was even better than described! We visited windmills dedicated to peanut oil production, clogs, cheese, chocolate, and spices. The scenery could not have been more beautiful! Gina was a doll, and very patient and accommodating to what we wanted! We even had a city tour as we travelled to and from! Would do it again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tracy, thank you so much for your review! I'm very glad you found the tour even better than words;) Having a good pace, gave us a good opportunity for a little bit extra experience! Warm Regards!

Our experience in Amsterdam could not have been MORE perfect. Dina completely customized a wonderful culinary/sightseeing tour for four of us in Amsterdam. She met us at our hotel and we began our tour at an exclusive hotel for a "high wine" tasting menu with wine pairings -- it was absolutely terrific! Dina has a delightful, warm and friendly personality and is full of knowledge about her City. She tailored the entire tour to our wishes and it was fantastic. Do yourself a favor and choose Dina!!

Dina met us at our hotel, right on time. We walked for 4 hours through many areas of Amsterdam. Red light district, down to the palace area, up to Anne Frank's house, and then to a neat little bar which made customized drinks for us. Dina has a remarkable knowledge of Holland history, and knows the City of Amsterdam wonderfully. She also recommended which canal tours to take, and referenced us to a fine restaurant for dinner. Great guided day in Amsterdam !!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dennis, thank you so much for this great review! I thoroughly enjoy our time together, loved your questions and how much you love history; Hope you enjoyed my further recommendations and the yarn's store;) Have always amazing travels and looking forward to seeing you again in Amsterdam!

Dina is an exceptional guide. She knows Amsterdam well and she is very flexible. She is so personable and was very kind to us. We had a 13 year old with us, and she made sure he was involved and seeing sites that he enjoyed as well. The walking tour was tailored just for us. The canal boat ride was wonderful! The cheese tasting was fun, and the chocolate cookie was the best! We loved spending the day with her!

We are a family of 5 and my children can't stop talking about Dina. Her light heartedness and enthusiastic nature made the kids not want to leave her. They joke "they miss her already." Her tour of the muiderslot and her inside knowledge of local places to visit was very helpful. When we come back she will be our go to guide.. the kids won't have it any other way. Get ready Dina!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Julie, thank you so very much! For the great review, but also for the great company touring with your family; was a blasted day, kids are so much fun, great humour, kindness and cheeky smiles;) Can't wait to have you back for some more fun!! Warmest regards to all!!!

Dina was Great! She showed up on time and we started our adventure at a wooden shoes/cheese farm. It was off the beaten path, not your typical tourist spots (with 100's of people). We (there were 8 of us) received a prior tour and demonstration. We then headed to the Windmill. She also made a spur of the moment stop at a Licorice Candy store for us. We laughed and had a great time with Dina. Highly recommend her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Donna, thank you for your great review! I do enjoy myself these hidden treasures of the Dutch countryside and is an honour to show to my guests! Warm regards!

My wife and I were delayed by 2 hours on our flight to Amsterdam. We contacted Dina as soon as we landed. She was very accommodating and pushed back the start time to our tour by two hours. Dina was a great guide. We booked the city highlight tour. She made us feel like we were touring with an old friend. She was very passionate and informative about her city's culture, food and diversity. 4 hours went by very quickly. I would highly recommend her as a guide.

She showed us some real gems that only a local would know and we are most grateful. We were able to see a lot of the city in an easy relaxed pace that was most enjoyable. I can't wait to return as one day just wasn't enough! Thank you Dina for your time, knowledge and for giving us such a wonderful memories of our time in Amsterdam.
