Anne McKillipsUnited States
If you are looking for a guide in the Amsterdam, Delft or The Hague, Rene is excellent. This one to outside Amsterdam to the windmills, fishing villages and some of the other most quaint little villages you have ever seen. And he knew the complete history of all them. My husband and I found him professional, responsive and very easy to work with. And most of all just pleasant to be with. Highly recommend him!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Anne, come again to see the tulips in the spring!

Sharon DolanUnited States
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour by Rene. He was timely, personable and extremely well informed. We now have an understanding of the Netherlands because Rene was able to field any question we asked. Rene's commentary added so much to our tour of windmills, the countryside and charming villages.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Don and Sharon, tell your friends !
Kristin W.United States
Rene was great - knowledgeable and caring. He really did a good job of telling us many interesting things about the Netherlands without making it dry or academic, I learned sooo much and enjoyed myself meanwhile. My father is in a wheelchair and he was very accommodating of our needs. I highly recommend Rene for any tour he offers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kristin, tell your friends !

Kim LaudenslagerUnited States
Both the tour and Rene exceeded our expectations. Rene was gracious and professional. I was traveling with friends (six of us total) and his van was very clean and comfortable. Rene clearly knows his stuff!! He shared his knowledge of the country and the areas/towns we visited with ease. We enjoyed his easygoing manner and appreciated the personal touches he added to the tour. The church bells, the drawbridges, the canals, the windmills, ALL of it!! Thank you Rene!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kim, hope to see your friends from Colorado !
Aron LorenzUnited States
Rene was a very well informed and nice private guide. He made some modifications to the tour for us and was very fair with the extra charge for extending the tour. We highly recommend this tour and his services. His recommendation to dine at Brasserie Keyzer was an excellent recommendation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Aron, tell your friends !

Robert EkedahlBoise, ID, United States
Rene was outstanding. Highly professional. He made every part of our day live! I'm so sorry it took over a year to make this evaluation but I felt I really shouldn't miss the chance. (I only hope for the sake of the traveling pubic that he's still doing tours)
Sharon SmithUnited States
Rene's expérience with tourists and this specific tour was evident from the start. Clean, comfy transportation and punctual pick-up were just the first signs of a good tour. :) This tour of the countryside near Amsterdam was a perfect choice for us.. because we were raised in the middle of the USA in farm country. This was unique, interesting, informative. The visit to the mill and our tour with Peter were highlights. Lovely break at the old hotel's cafe. I highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Sharon, tell your friends !
Jan WellUnited States
A very knowledgeable guide who made us feel very comfortable during our trip. Rene answered our questions and would expand on the idea. We were so happy to get out of the city to visit many villages along our route. He was a great person to lead us. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jan, tell your friends!

This was our second Tour with Rene and again we found it a great experience.Our grandson Rhys  related well to Rene and absorbed our guides fantastic knowledge of the areas we visited.The tour was relaxed, informative and a great way to see parts of outer Amsterdam that you would normally miss out on. I hope Rene enjoyed our company as much as we his! Let's hope Rene is around and doing what he does well when we return in two years with our next grandchild. Frank en Rhys Australia.
Sarita VernekoffUnited States
All seven of us enjoyed our day with Rene touring from Amsterdam into the countryside and villages. With so many people to accommodate, we asked him to vary his usual itinerary and he willingly did so. For lunch, he took us to a charming restaurant for delicious and reasonably priced traditional food. Rene offered interesting commentary about Dutch history and answered our questions about life there today. We would definitely recommend his services.
Paul WoodallBirmingham, AL, United States
René is very knowledgable, enjoyable to be with and knows the delightful small towns in the Netherlands to take people to if that is what they want. It was a wonderful day to be guided around by René, and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is from Delft, which is a charming town in every respect, and if anyone wants a guide just in Delft, René would be a superb choice.
Joan RalphUnited States
We were a group of 10 friends that went on this tour with Renee. The motor coach that he hired was very comfortable, clean, and new. The driver was terrific. Renee showed us the Dutch countryside as well as taking us to to small villages where we experienced Dutch life and learned about Dutch traditions. We lunched in a lovely restaurant. Renee went above and beyond what we were expecting. All 10 of us would highly recommend him and getting 10 people to agree is quite a feat!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Joan, I hope to see you and your group again sometime, we had a lovely day.
