My wife and I spent the day with Jolijn and found her to be highly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about showing us her country. We had a great ride out into the countryside, then to Harlam. We found her to be a delight to be with and would recommend her to anyone.

Jolijn was wonderful. She picked us up from the ship we were disembarking and took us to the town of Harlem where I had specifically asked to go to the Corrie Ten Boom museum. She had pre arranged a tour for us and her timing was great and the experience unforgettable. At the end of our tour with her she took us to a houseboat we had rented for a few days and even waited with us until the owner came to let us in.

I was fortunate to spend an afternoon with Jolijn in Haarlem. She is an outstanding guide, lives in Haarlem and has enormous (and well deserved) enthusiasm for her home city. In just one afternoon, Jolijn did an outstanding tour of the Church of St. Bavo and the Frans Hals and Teylers Museums, helped orient me to the Central Station and train system and recommended fabulous restaurants. Haarlem was a terrific place to stay to visit Holland. Jolijn was key to how much I enjoyed this beautiful city.

Jolijn is an exceptional guide who presents her beloved Haarlem with pride and delight. She has made our tour special by doing a lot of research to link our experience to places of interest (re our heritage). Her approach is professional, yet caring - she seems to be always aware of the needs of every person in the group. Thank you for creating special and happy memories for us (Mimi and Stephanie).

Jolijn planned a special tour of Haarlem; however, we wanted to see the Corrie Ten Boom museum -- which took over an hour out of the Haarlem tour. The museum was worth our time, and Jolijn accommodated our wishes with ease. She showed us some key areas of Haarlem and then drove us north to see a little more of the countryside. Jolijn is an excellent guide who does her best to ensure the customer is happy.

I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to have Jolijn as our guide. My friend Mireille has had two operations and doesn't see well and I need a cane after knee surgery so we are quite a handful. But it was clear at EVERY turn that Jolijn had only one thought in mind. She must have been thinking what can I do to make sure these people have a good time and enjoy themselves. And we truly did. I know some of my friends will say this was a waste of money but it isn't because we overcame our limitations!

Jolijn is a tourist's dream: friendly, informed, an excellent observer of the needs of the group. We really had a wonderful day in Haarlem, so much so that we plan to returrn next year with some of our friends.
