Ravil is an excellent guide. He tailored his tour to our interests and was very flexible with his timing. Ravil's English is very good and he's very knowledgeable. We could tell he was passionate about history and his work! He's also a good driver so we felt safe at all times. And he's a very nice guy! We would highly recommend him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for a great review!

I can not say enough wonderful things about our guide, Ravil! We were on a 21 day river sojourn culminating in Amsterdam. We had 1 full day to tour and had never been to the city. Ravil customized our day to include a walking tour and canal hop off tour. It was fabulous. He insured we saw every part of the city. Aside from being thoroughly knowledgeable regarding the history and culture of Amsterdam, Ravil took care of us like we were family. I can not give higher praise to Ravil and Tours by Locals!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for such a warm review.!!!! I really appreciate that and it was such a pleasure to work with you guys!

We loved the walking tour of Amsterdam with Ravil. He showed us many places only a local would know. He was very articulate and his stories about the city made the history of the city come alive. He truly loves Amsterdam and has great knowledge about the history and the present of this amazing city. Ravil also gave us many great recommendations for other things to do in our time here.

I booked a last minute private walking tour with Ravil as we only had one day in Amsterdam. A bit slow to start as there was a bit more talking and explaining than we were interested in, but then things got going great. Ravil has a great sense of humor; was able to converse with my 17 and 19 year old sons easily; took us to some spots we asked about. His focus was more on the history side of things and he is very knowledgeable. Professional and courteous. Def recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for a great review, I really appreciate it.

Wonderful day spent with Ravil!. He was kind to meet us at our hotel and start the tour from there. He pointed out many sights that we would never have stumbled upon as well as being very informative. Would certainly recommend Ravil to anyone who is planning to visit Amsterdam.

Ravil is an excellent guide! He worked with us ahead of time to figure out a plan for my mom with mobility problems, and then made sure our every need was met throughout the day. We saw so much, and Ravil had lots of interesting information to share about everything we saw. This tour was a highlight of our trip. I highly recommend booking a tour with Ravil!

Ravil did an amazing job for our family of four. Three generations and 3 cities in one day starting and ending in Amsterdam. We visited Brussels, Gent and Antwerp. An ambitious day but Ravil's knowledge of the area and history was quite impressive. We would definitely recommend Ravil !

Ravil was just a wonderful guide. He's very friendly, personable, and easy to be around. We spent eight hours together on a countryside tour and his vast knowledge of the country and the culture was fascinating. He had a lot of unique insights regarding the past and present of this wonderful country. He went out of his way to make us happy and comfortable. He's an asset to not only Tours by Locals but the tour industry in general. We recommend him very highly! Come to California Rav!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for a great review here. It was such a pleasure to work with you guys. Please come back again. Will be happy to create another customized tour for you! Thank you for the invitation as well, maybe one day I'll visit California.

Ravi was an excellent guide with great local knowledge and also historical knowledge. He showed us in 41/2 hours the Amsterdam that would have taken us a couple of days to cover. I would highly recommend Ravi if you are interested in seeing a lot of the Central district of Amsterdam in a very efficient time period. Ravi was a very personable individual and appears to really showing off his City.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your great review. It was such a pleasure to work with you. Hopefully, you are having a great time on vacation in Europe.

Ravil's knowledge and appreciation of Amsterdam is apparent as soon as introductions are over. His ability to address history, architecture and cultural context as one accompanies him throughout Amsterdam was excellent. Ravil earns 5 of 5 stars.

We spent a wonderful day in the Dutch countryside with Ravil touring Zaanse Schans, Katwoude & Volendam. Ravil was extremely helpful in helping us figure out the schedule and transportation for King's Day so we could get out of the noisy, crowded city for several hours that day. He was very accommodating, fun and knowledgeable.

Ravil was incredible. He was prompt and s-o-o-o accommodating when one of our family members had to be in a wheelchair unexpectedly. He is one of the best, enjoys what he does, and showed us the best of Amsterdam in a comfortable pace. I highly recommend his tours.
