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!!
