Tour: #234607, Stoutenberg, Amsterdam, Netherlands    
Date: Nov 2/18

Vincent was excellent. The tour we requested was outside Amsterdam and a place personal to us, not one usually visited by visitors to the area. We had a wonderful time and would not have learned anywhere near the history of the area without Vincent's help. To make our day even more enjoyable, he also took us to the former fishing village of Marken.

We had an excellent tour for our group of 12. The pace was as we requested; the vehicle was very comfortable; we saw and did just the right things based on our interests. Vincent arranged all of this, plus a very nice lunch in a very local place off the usual tourist path. Vincent also went well beyond expectations by calling ahead to make sure everything was on time. He also made a personal recommendation for a dinner location in Amsterdam and even called to book it for us. That was very appreciated

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Robert. Kind regards Vincent

My husband and I had travelled from Toronto during the night and Vincent met us at the airport and took us directly to the Holten Canadian War Cemetery. He was knowledgeable about the second world war and took a genuine interest in our reason for visiting the cemetery. We also know just how difficult it was for him to navigate the Amsterdam streets to get us to our hotel in the afternoon. Thanks Vincent, Truly a day to remember. Kim and Diane Bickle

The day with Vincent was quite enjoyable, a perfectly paced and relaxing day spent exploring the villages. He's very knowledgeable and articulate. And, wonderfully dependable ... even though his car broke down, he was able to rent a car and pick us up right on time! You won't regret spending a day with Vincent!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Judith!

He has a great personality, I would highly recommend Vincent as a guide. Thank you, Vincent

Vincent is a knowledgeable and professional guide. He took us north of Amsterdam for a tour of early Dutch infrastructure, notably polders and windmills. It was an informative and eye-opening tour. Thank you for a wonderful tour!

Our 5-star rating (my wife, two fellow companions and me) is based on what Vincent A., did for us both before our eight hours with him and on the day of our tour. Thru e-mails he asked about our interests. He then designed an itinerary influenced by our responses and enriched by his knowledge of the area and asked for our reactions and revisions. We got the tour we worked out that way, and it was really terrific. Vincent's a very amusing, but deeply knowledgeable guy, a sure bet.

My mom and I LOVED Vincent!! He took us on a private full day tour of the Keukenhof, windmills, and tulip fields. He made every dream of ours come true! Seeing the tulip fields in Holland were a huge bucket list item and he made sure we saw them in all of their glory. He also tailored the trip as the day went on to visit a working cheese factory. All in all he is extremely passionate about Holland and listens to his clients' needs. We would highly recommend Vincent to anyone traveling to Amsterdam!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Steph! Thank you for your kind words. It was really nice to meet you and your mum and I enjoyed seeing you playing in the tulpfields! Did you manage to get to that Anne Frank bookshop on your way to the airport ? Hope you had a good flight back to Florida and New York and please tell your mother, again, you were my best group ever...I know she wants to hear that. Take care! Vincent

Over a week has passed since we left & as people enquire into our trip I find I'm pulling frequently from our day with Vincent. He was courteous, prompt & drove us efficiently along our Volendam Beemster polder itinerary. But those points, although good by themselves, truly don't offer much to brag on. What does was his local knowledge he willingly shared, his professional adaptation to our interests, the geographical awareness Vincent had to reroute us out of sight of those huge bus tours. Thank you!

We had a wonderful day touring the countryside with Vincent! Vincent is knowledgable, friendly and informative. Our memories of the day we spent touring Volendam, Marken and Edam stand out. We would have missed seeing a wonderful slice of Holland had we not toured with Vincent.

My family of five had Vincent A take us to the countryside around Amsterdam. We visited Zaanse Schans, Edam, Marken, Volendam, the Beemster Polder. Vincent was terrific, he has an encyclopedic knowledge of the area and imparted lots of interesting facts about life in The Netherlands throughout history. We gained an appreciation for the ingenuity of people living in suboptimal conditions. Vincent was on time, his vehicle is large and comfortable and he was very flexible with the schedule and itinerary.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jeff. Thank you for your comments! Happy new year to you and your family. Hope you had a great time in Bruges. Kind regards Vincent
