Adrie was an amazing guide! We were a family of five and Adrie picked us up in his van from our hotel and drove us to the countryside outside of Amsterdam. He was extremely knowledgeable and had so many interesting facts and stories. He was able to take us to places that were away from all the tourists, and we felt like we got a true local experience . Highly recommend Adrie!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, Mrs. Borofsky! It was my pleasure to spend the day with you, your husband and children. And to see you have a good time in spite of the cold. And to be able to offer you a positive experience!
Our group of 4 had an absolute great tour of Amsterdam and Marken as well as tour of original windmill. Adrie was very informative and also shared a lot of interesting aspects of the dike and canal system and the constant threat that the Netherlands face with climate change. Despite rain and chilly weather our city tour was just as interesting. Lunch on the run was a great idea Adrie and you were very accomadating fitting as much into tour as possible. Adrie this was best tour of our trip! Brenda
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your friendly comment Brenda! With this tour is try to give as much as an overview as is possible in one day of both the city of Amsterdam and the country of The Netherlands as a whole. I'm happy to hear that it worked out for you. Please give my regards to your friends!

Adrie was a font of knowledge. He provided an extraordinary amount of detail and information about the history, society, politics, and people of Holland, as well as of the sights we encountered. Our group peppered him with many questions, and he answered all of them with patience, good humor, and detail. Even though one of our party was disabled, he made every effort to make sure that that person experienced as much as everyone else and did not miss anything.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your friendly comment, and for being such pleasant guests!

Adrie review: Adrie is an awesome tour guide. He picked us up punctually & provided an interesting talk on our hour drive to Rotterdam. He is very knowledgeable & answered all our questions about life in Holland. We appreciated his sense of humour & preparedness with umbrellas. The 3 city tour with Adrie is a must if you want to see more than Amsterdam.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the compliment! Your group of friends were in such good spirits that the day just flew by for me. I had a great time just like you!

Our full day with Adrie was absolutely perfect! He took the time to find out what we really wanted to do and then created exactly what we wanted. He was very knowledgeable, informative, fun, creative and a true ambassador to the Netherlands. The day flew by and at the end my wife and I were both sad to see it end, but happy we saw and learned so much. Adrie is "The man in Amsterdam"!

Adrie provided us with a most memorable day touring three of The Netherland's more impressive cities. He picked us up at our hotel in a very nice and comfortably van and then,as we went, provided informative narrative about the county side we were traveling through. We had provided him with some things we wished to see and he planned our day so that we were able to get to all. But maybe the best thing was, he is an extremely knowledgeable and pleasant person to spend a day with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the compliment!

I spent my entire day with Adrie. The best tour I have ever taken in my life. Between historical data and places off the beaten path he took me to, he is the best. I recommend him highly. You won't do any better.

Really enjoyed this tour. Adrie was great and very knowledgeable. He Evan sat with my 89 year old aunt while we went into some of the shops. Adrie picked us up at the airport. We were able to tour the gardens, drive through a beautiful village and tour the red light district before being taken to our cruise ship. A great time.

Adrie was an outstanding professional guide. He was great with history but also current events. He made our tour very informative and spent time showing us sites of special interest to us. You will not be disappointed if you tour with Adrie.
Keith PontoUnited States
Adrie was a wonderful guide. He was very informative of the country on our drive to Keukenhof. We were able to stop by some flower fields and get out and take pictures. At the garden he continued with valuable information and was very, very patient with us stopping for flower pictures. After a guided tour of about an hour, he let us wonder and explore on our own. His tour will be a highlight of the Netherlands. Adrie is highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice comment, and for being such nice customers! I would most gladly do another tour with you ;-)

I booked ADRIE for a day trip outside of Amsterdam to Utrech and nearby canal villages in the country. What a lovely day. So scenic, delightful and very informative. ADRIE is very knowledgable and communicates in a way that makes history and information come alive. A wonderful day with a wonderful man.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a wonderful day for me also! Customers like you make my job look easy ;-)

We loved our tour with Adrie Boerefijn today at Keukenhof Gardens, etc. He was very knowledgeable about everything Amsterdam and delighted us with stories and explanations of things along the way as we drove to the gardens. He was interesting, always considerate of our comfort level with walking and time spent in the various portions of the gardens. We highly HIGHLY recommend him as a tour guide. I wish we had even more time with this lovely man but sadly we leave tomorrow for home.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I always do my utter best to have my clients enjoy their tour with me, but coming from such pleasant people as you and your wife I really feel privileged with this comment! Thank you!
