Ravil is a fine guide with an excellent fund of knowledge. He speaks English with a Russian accent (he is from Moscow) but he is very understandable. He took us on a tour of the highlights of Amsterdam and walked at a comfortable pace. Midway through the tour he stopped so that we could rest and get a drink and use the bathroom. We used a Tram to get from our hotel ( the Amsterdam Hilton) to the city center. It was a convenient way to travel but warm and stuffy. All in all we enjoyed his tour.

Ravil was unbievably informed about Amsterdam and it's history. We felt te points of interest he took us to we're all worth while and his knowledge of each of them was excellent. We agreed we would love to have him guide us again on our next trip!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your response and for your feedback. I really appreciated.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bill, I'm sorry to hear that you haven't enjoyed the tour so much. I would really appreciate if you could more specific and give me some tips which I can use in the future. I have struggled with finding a balance between delivering a tour as described and your wife's ability to walk longer distances. On the other hand, I have asked you on the several occasions if everything was alright and if we have to adjust something. I also gave your group an extra hour for free, in order to get full impressions.

The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable of history however he was not very attentive to the customers meaning is a part of the tour is dragging and they look bored, move onto to something else. The drive around the city was very pleasant and nice to see many beautiful and interesting things.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm very disappointed to learn that you felt parts of the tour were not so interesting. Nice to know that you appreciated my knowledge and capability to give as much information as possible. The guide can always cut shorter the story if will get any signs from the visitors. Apparently, there were no noticeable signs. I saw the signs of the jet lag. Perhaps it was not such a good idea to book such a complex tour after your night flight from the US to Amsterdam. But again I appreciate your feedback.

Tour: Private Rotterdam and Kinderdijk, Rotterdam, Netherlands
Date: Dec 28/17

Ravil picked us up promptly in his nice clean car and we headed on a custom tour of Rotterdam which was epic. His knowledge of architectural detail was very crisp as he had not only studied but had recently guided a group of architects and was able to share wonderful back stories of the buildings we were seeing. We walked almost 10 miles had a wonderful lunch . We then toured working Windmills, then he dropped us back at our suite after pointing out shopping/dining recommendations. Highly recommend!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for both of your reviews!

We had a fantastic tour today, even in rainy weather it was perfect. Loved Ravil, prompt, knowledgeable, flexible, and excellant with details, history and local knowledge. The private canal tour arranged on a small but elligant boat was perfect! Lunch at a local spot, and his recommendation and help booking an evening canal light tour on our own was wonderful. We are looking forward to our tour of Rotterdam etc with him tomorrow! Michael and Sandra Martindale

Ravil was a great guide and very accommodating to our schedule. He met us at our boat hotel which was away from the normal city hotels. He adjusted and slightly extended the tour to take advantage of our location. He is very knowledgeable about the history and architecture of Amsterdam. We walked about 4 miles during our tour and the pace was quite comfortable. Overall, we had a great tour and would recommend Ravil to our friends and family.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review, I really appreciate it. I wish you and your family a sparkling New Year. Kind regards Ravil

Ravil was extremely flexible and provided multiple options to help with our schedule and interests. He is a man of history. Besides the top class information he provides about the various parts of the city he shows during his tour, he also provides a window into the socio-economics of the local people and culture in the present days. Highly recommend this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Vik, Thank you very much for leaving a review. I wish you and your family a great New Year. Kind regards Ravil
