We really enjoyed having Rob as our guide in both the Van Gogh and the Rijks Museums. In the Van Gogh, he walked us though the main paints in a chronological order pointing out what was happening in his life, influences and location of each one - great insight into Van Gogh life and helped us interpret and admire each work. In the Rijks, Rob, focused our visit in the works of the masters of the Golden Age (Rembrandt and Vermeer) with great explanations about the period and the paintings. Great Guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Monica and Sergio, thank you for this nice review. Regards, Rob

Rob is really a fantastic tour guide. We enjoyed the Van Gogh Museum with him, because he had a wealth of information about Van Gogh, which made the tour so much more enjoyable and delightful. Understanding what Van Gogh was going through in his life while painting brings an intimacy to the experience that you couldn't get by just viewing the paintings. It was wonderful!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kathy for your nice review. Looking forward to a rainless tour today!

Rob served as an excellent guide for the Van Gogh Museum and maintained the interest of our teenager for the entire tour. I highly recommend him, as we spent two hours in the museum in a meaningful way. We gained a good overview of Van Gogh's life as we viewed the periods of his artwork from his early life to his death. Rob is a good historian and storyteller. Thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Leah, Thank you for your nice feedback. It was a pleasure! Best regards, Rob

Rob is a very knowledgeable and interesting guide. We felt like we got a great overview of Amsterdam. Rob went above and beyond and took us on the train to the marketplace before leaving us at the end of the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Christine and Bob for your nice review. Enjoy the rest of your stay in the Netherlands. Kind regards, Rob

Rob was a terrific asset on our tour of the museums! He shared interesting facts about the artists and their works and he showed us so many cool, small details in the paintings that we never would have noticed on our own. Seeing the highlights of the two major museums was just what we had in mind. Rob was cheerful, friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. I'd definitely recommend him, as well as Toursbylocals in general, to my friends and family! Thanks Rob for a fun and memorable day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Brenda, thanks a lot for your nice feedback! Best regards from the Netherlands, Rob
