Our Early Morning Canal Tour with Rocco was wonderful. It was so peaceful to be on the canals and seeing the city of Amsterdam before most people were up and about. He was considerate to accommodate us in this way. Very memorable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Julie, it was my pleasure to be with you all at this peaceful time of day. I'm so happy you found the tour memorable.

A most wonderful tour - a beautiful way to see Amsterdam. Our tour guide and boat captain was a super host - he provided drinks and bites to eat which made the experience even more enjoyable. We learned much while experiencing the canals and the vibes of Amsterdam. All our needs were met. We highly recommend this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Debra, it is so wonderful for me that you enjoyed the tour so completely and that the atmosphere of Amsterdam was transmitted by our time together. Thank you again

Rocco was terrific!This was an amazing tour!He's very knowledgeable, personable and passionate about Amsterdam.We loved seeing a part of Amsterdam that most people don't get to see.He kept us at a good pace and stopped or even back tracked to pick up stragglers in the group.He stopped along the route so he could give us information and take pictures.Toward the end of the tour we stopped at a cute little place on the water to have a beverage and snacks.I highly recommend this tour and Rocco as your guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeanine for your lovely recommendation, it was really a pleasure to guide you all through the beautiful countryside around Amsterdam.

Rocco was an amazing tour guide.for the Romantic Canal Tour. Rocco's canal boat was comfortable and romantically set with yummy Dutch delights. His commentary was filled with beautiful, romantic stories and Amsterdam history. Throughout the tour he played soft romantic music that lent ambiance to the soft canal lighting. We definitely recommend Rocco as YOUR Amsterdam tour guide. Until we meet again,Rocco!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a true pleasure to spend two days with you showing the best of the city. It fills me with joy knowing that you had such a wonderful time. Your description of the tour is identical to how I intend it to be. Thank you so much and until we meet again, with love Rocco

Rocco was a charming and low-key host on our three-hour walking tour through the Centrium district. The tour offered windows on each of several eras in Amsterdam's development, as well as tasteful and candid guidance as to coffee shops and the Red Light district. Rocco offered a fascinating perspective on the city and was a pleasure to meet.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Keith, it was a pleasure sharing the sight, sounds and stories Amsterdam with you.

We had a great 3-hour tour with Rocco. He was punctual, friendly, informative, patient with our questions, and easy to talk with. His pace was steady but never rushed, and he showed us places in Amsterdam that we would never have found on our own. We've hired a number of Tours By Locals guides throughout the world in recent years, and we've never had a better tour than the one we had with Rocco. We highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn about this very fascinating city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dick and Dave. It was really great to show you around and thank you for your kind words. Have a lovely travel and untill we meet again. Warm greetings Rocco

He was punctual, knowable and fun to spend the day with. He made it all very easy. It was a day in Amsterdam that we will never forget.

Rocco was a wonderful guide. He is a great performer and a skilled group wrangler. He is also very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Amsterdam. He shared this with our group during a very pleasant two hour tour. The Red Light district is a busy and congested area with lots to see. A great guide like Rocco really gives you an understanding of how the place came to be and where it might be headed. I recommend the tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bridget, It was lovely to have you on the tour and I am really please you enjoyed my Raw Romance Tour. The Red Light district is a fascinating district and changes so quickly all the time. Thank you and have a lovely cruise. Rocco

Our group of three couples recently took the Raw Romance tour with Rocco. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. Rocco was a wonderful guide! Besides the Red Light district tour, he gave us a lot of information and history about the industry. He also was very informative on some of the buildings and architecture we passed, along with the canals. We would highly recommend this tour, and Rocco as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Debra, It was a great pleasure to show you around and let you discover the depths of the Red Light District. I hope you had a wonderful time in Amsterdam. Rocco

We enjoyed the beautiful countryside, the great biking route system, the canals network, the old earthen dam, the opened bridge, the historical windmill.

We had a great time in Amsterdam. Rocco is a real local , knows all the good spots to visit and is passionate about the city. We had a great walking tour and Rocco kindly invited us to join his Romantic Amsterdam boat tour. I was with my 10year old son but its the type of tour that can be enjoyed by anyone. Highly recommend him for his knowledge of the city as well as his passion. He even spent some extra time helping us find a restaurant. Ask him about his boat tour and list of favorite restaurants.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Vivian, Thank you for your kind words. It was really wonderful to show you around. See you next time. Rocco
