Date: Jul 3/18

Walda was so pleasant and very knowledgeable about all the art we saw in the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum. She navigated us through the museums so that we could get a good understanding of the artist and the period that they lived in. Our treat afterwards was a canal ride in a small 1922 cabin boat for just us and cocktails of our choice. It was a wonderful experience and we recommend it highly. You can't go wrong with Walda she has all the best contacts.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Scott and Judy, You are such lovely people! Thank you for your kind comments, I appreciate it very much. All the best, Walda

Walda was amazing. Full of knowledge. As she is a teacher of art appreciation, she made the Van Goah museum come to life. We took a wonderful private boat tour on the canal, Anne Frank House , Jewish Quarters and the theatre where the Jews waited for deportation. We then visited the area in which Anne Frank grew up. Truly a wonderful day filled sith knowledge by an interesting and terrific tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Felice! Yes, it was a wonderful and full day, custom made for you, very happy you enjoyed it! Thanks for lunch and the little breaks. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Holland and Denmark! Hugs, Walda

My wife, children (20 & 17) and I scheduled a tour of the Rijks and Van Gogh museums with Walda and she was fantastic! Met us at our hotel, walked us through the city, had all of our passes ready to go and most importantly was very knowledgeable of Rembrandt and Van Gogh. We spent 5 hours together and it could not have been better - Walda is lovely and we recommend her highly!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear Carradine family, thank you for your wonderful comments. Glad you enjoyed our day in the museums, I did too! It was nice talking to you and sharing our love for art. Thank you for the coffee break and I hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Amsterdam. All the best, Walda

A superb art museum tour of Rijksmuseum and Stedelijk Museum. Walda is friendly and knowledgeable - she knew how to focus the tour so that we got a deep sense of Rembrandt, his followers and environment and Netherlands' Golden Age. Then after a quick lunch in the public garden outside the museums, we enjoyed her guiding us through the development and movements in contemporary art. She is easy to talk to and learn from.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael, it was my pleasure! Glad I could show you the Old Masters AND the work of modern and contemporary artists, it was a great combination. Thanks for lunch, it was great being with you, Walda

A++++ Walda did a stellar job coordinating a phenomenal day in Amsterdam with my son (11y) wife, and governess. My son said Walda is the "best guide EVER!" The private dinner cruise was stellar! She was flexible, professional, highly knowledgable, and dynamic. She provided a highly customized experience for us and anticipated our unexpressed wishes - WOW - LUXURY guiding at its finest! We felt insulated from the summer crowds and navigated though the most mobbed "must-do" sights like VIP's!

Walda was everything one could ask for in a tour guide. To begin the tour began on time and ended on time. Her knowledge of the subject matter was first rate and explained in a manner that was easy to comprehend. We moved at a good pace, not too fast nor to slow. Time for a snack break was provided and appreciated as 4 hours straight of museum touring can be a bit much. All in all would heartily recommend Walda.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul, Janet, Jack and Ann, Thank you for choosing me as your private guide. It was my pleasure showing you around in the museums. Thank you for your lovely comments here and in your private message. Take care, Walda

Along with Rembrandt's house, excellent, and something you could do on you own but you would be missing a lot of great stories and fun explanations that makes the home and the neighborhood come alive without her expertise. The best part thought was she arranged a private canal tour on one of the most beautiful boats on the canal. We felt pretty special when the boat picked us up right next to Rembrandt's house and took us around the canals with everywhere we went people taking pictures of the boat,

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andy, Thank you for 3 five star reviews for our 3 tours in Amsterdam. It was delightful to guide your family in the museums, do a city walk and ofcourse the private canal cruise. Happy that you enjoyed it all! Hope to meet you again one day, all the best, Walda

Date: Mar 11/18

Walda arranged for a beautifully restored antique, saloon boat to meet us at the canal across from the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, to take us on a tour for an hour through small canals, where the large tour boats cannot go. It was a perfect, quiet Sunday at noon made even more perfect due to the boat's silent, electric engine. An absolutely sublime way to arrive at the Rijksmuseum, or other location of your choice. From the dock Walda guided me to the Rijksmuseum entrance and arranged for my quick entry. JS

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jane, it was great being with you and do three tours: a private canal cruise in Amsterdam, museums and churches in Delft and The Hague and a combination of Haarlem and Zaanse schans windmills. I loved our talks about art, Tefaf, our lives and culture and I hope to see you again in October. Sincerely, Walda

Walda was on time (actually early) to meet us and greeted us with warm enthusiasm. She was friendly and understanding, giving us occasional rest periods. Most important, of course, she was very informative and gave us an informed view of both the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum. As an art history professor, she is quite knowledgeable; as a tour guide, she uses that knowledge in an enjoyable narrative that gives context as well as detail. Excellent guide whom I recommend without reservation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, Wayne! Good to hear that you enjoyed our visit to the museums at Museum Square. Amsterdam has many more interesting museums; please come back one day! Regards, Walda

Short version: We were absolutely delighted. Long version: Communications ahead of time were promptly and clearly handled. Walda meet us a few minutes ahead of schedule, took us through the museums and gave usfar more background than anything we could have gotten from the printed descriptions. Her art history teaching background came through clearly--she taught us how paintings were understood by the patterns of that time. I could go on for several more paragraphs but don't have any more room to write.

Walda created a custom art tour for the Rijksmuseum and Van Gough museum. Her art history background, easy conversational style, and gentle manner made for a truly first class experience! Unquestionably, her knowledge and expertise helped the art come alive in front of our eyes. Our group was large (13 people) yet she easily made sure everyone felt included and answered all of their questions. To a person, we all considered her one of the best guides we had ever had. Thank you Walda!
