Jolijn guided us through the Van Gogh museum. She was on time, very enthusiastic and really knowledgeable. She was engaging and really passionate when she explained things to us. We really learned a lot from her. I've been on lot of private tours. I've had some great ones and some duds. She was one of the great ones.

On this six country tour we had seven ToursByLocals guides, our first but not our last experience with this company. It is hard I think to go wrong with their guides who are extremely knowledgable, experienced, affable, and engaging . Jolyn was superb--met us at our hotel and took us to the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum as well as nearby sites which took most of the day. She is an art critic and I believe dealer. Her insights added a dimension we have note had before. Highly recommended.

Jolijn is Terrific. She is quite knowledgeable about the history and style of Dutch Art. Jolijn was helpful, accommodating, and considerate. We would definitely book again with Jolijn.

Jolijn was terrific. We toured the Van Gogh. She got us in ahead of the line, was very knowledgable about the artist, his work and his life. We had planned the Anne frank Museum after her tour and, as an extra, she walked us to Anne Frank which was quite a distance away. Very helpful and pleasant. Very nice job!

Joiljn is a superb guide. Her love for the arts and the telling of the Van Gogh life through painting made all the works so relevant. The hour tour was just enough to get the complete story and see the art. If I could, she would get 10 stars!!!
Margaret BerryUnited States
Jolijn was a terrific guide to the Rijksmuseum. She covered all the highlights in 2 hours with emphasis on the most important works. She was able to engage my teenagers and include them in the discussions and was open to questions at any time. It was perfect for us as an introduction to the museum and one I can highly recommmend.

We spent two half days with Jolijn walking the city of Amsterdam and seeing museums. Jolijn is a pleasure to be with; open, engaging and well informed. We came to know the city intimately through her eyes. Her knowledge of the Rijk Museum and Van Gogh exhibit was outstanding . She made us feel welcomed and right at home. We recommend her highly.
Sharon DolanUnited States
Jolijn was a great tour guide. She got us through the Riksmuseum in less than two hours making sure we saw and understood the highlights. I would definitely book her again and will the next time we get to Amsterdam. I wish I would have booked more than two hours.

Jolijn met us at the museum with a big smile- we so enjoyed being with her. We learned so much and saw treasures that we would have never found on our on. What a delightful learning experience!
James HalperinUnited States
This could possibly be the best tour I have ever had. She was remarkable and one of the nicest persons I have ever met. I would recommend her highly to everyone. Anyone not using her would be foolish.
Michael McCluskeyUnited States
Probably my favorite of an art museum. Jolijn was very informative and gave some great insights without ever being boring. She also had the challenge of having 2 teenagers on the tour, and she also kept them interested. The Rijksmuseum is a great museum and highly recommended. Plan on staying in the museum after the tour. (Make sure you get the tickets from Jolijn.)
Martin BaumUnited States
Jolijn was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, professional, and pleasure to be with. She made our tour of the museums quite meaningful and enjoyable. We would lightly recommend her to others.

Vacation Upgrade - We retained Jolijn for her knowledge of art, and viewed the Dutch masters in the Rijksmusuem. We were a group of 3. She adapted to our pace, explaining the elements, answering all of our many questions. She does a wonderful job of imparting her in-depth knowledge Jolijn is low key and gracious; not the type that herds you around. We also appreciated the passion for her country's history .
Jane CasavantUnited States
Jolijn was a fabulous guide for our visit to the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. Her knowledge of the art we saw was wonderful and added so much to our visit---I can't imagine what our museum visits would have been without her. She gave us so much history and stories that made everything come alive. Highly recommend. Thank you, Jolijn!
Passionate about art and made us see things we would not have noticed otherwise. We appreciated our time with her and would recomend her
Samir PatelUnited States
Jolijn was extremely informative and you could tell that she was passionate about the artwork and her job. She gave a great summary of the most famous artists as well as connecting the artwork with the history of Amsterdam. We would highly recommend her! She also went over our tour three hours ad gratis because we wanted to see the Van Gogh Museum- this really proves how wonderful she is!
Elizabeth ForrestalUnited States
Our tour with Jolijn on Jul 4, 2014 at 10:00 AM. Was excellent. We will most certainly recommend Jolijn and your company to our friends and colleagues. In the future when we travel, we look for potential guides in other cities as well.
Jolijn was fantastic!
Mrs. Betsy RollsUnited States
Jolijn was excellent...she obviously loves her job and has many ideas and insights that are so helpful. We wish her well and will recommend her to any of our friends who may travel to Amsterdam. Very Sincerely, John and Betsy Rolls
Jolijn was a super guide. She was full of interesting information and went at a pace perfect for our family. She showed us the highlights of the Rijksmuseum as well as several very interesting but lesser known pieces. There was always a story or an insightful comment for each piece. Also, her comments of Amsterdam while we were walking to the museum we're very interesting too. We would highly recommend her!

I have the privilege of joining Jolijn's tour for a full-day. She is a knowledgeable, friendly and dedicated tour guide with strong sense of responsibility. I just regret not having more time with her! Unreservedly recommend Jolijn.
