My 16 year old son and I just returned from an 11 day tour to Europe. This was our first time -- and we must say it was an experience of a lifetime. We joined a travel club at his high school and the trip was arranged through EF tours. We really hit the jackpot with a local guide in... More

Absolutely loved this city. So much to do and see. Just didn't want to leave. Shopping, Museums, great eating places, markets, canals, Red Light District, Tours, House of Anne Frank etc. all in just walking distance. Can't wait to go back!!!

Because we traveled in early October we had Larae to ourselves for a private three hour tour. She met us at our hotel and we proceeded from there. She is a wealth of knowlege about Amsterdam and her love of the city comes through. She will recommend restaurants or any other interesting things you might wish to do while in... More

I asked Larae to take my family of 3 generations on a tour of Amsterdam. Everyone loved it, Larae went at a pace that everyone could keep up with and had many anecdotes up her sleeve. She offered us insider tips for the rest of our stay and we can only recommend her tour!!

I have been on many private and small group tours over the years in various parts of Europe. This tour conducted by Larae was exceptional. Many tour guides know the information but Larae made the tour very interesting, detailed with complex knowledge in a variety of fields including architecture, history, social dynamics and epicure. The information was conveyed in a... More

This was my first tour with Trafalgar and i can honestly say I didn't know what to expect. It was amazing. It was a great way to travel and our tour guide, Larae, made the trip amazing! She is so knowledgable and gave us the best experience in all of our countries. She went above and beyond my expectation of... More

The tour bus took us around town in the morning and we stopped at one of the diamond factories to have a look around.The tour takes off from Damrak. Then we had to go back at 2 for the ride out to Vollendam and Marken. Luis was our guide... More

I had no idea what to expect when I went to Amsterdam, but now, thanks to Larae, I can't wait to go back! She's so knowledgeable and friendly-- she makes you feel like you're visiting an old friend. She took us around all the different parts of Amsterdam, sharing both its cultural history and her own personal experiences there. I... More

This trip almost exceeded our expectations -- the weather was the only disappointment. Larae was a wonderful tour director, knowledgeable about each city we visited over ten days. She made all 48 of the travellers on the Trafalgar Bus Tour feel welcome, and created an atmosphere of camaraderie for all of us, despite our different ages, genders and backgrounds. She... More

We met Larae at Dam Square for our Quintessential Amsterdam tour. She spent 4 hours taking us through Amsterdam. This is one of the best walking tours we have ever taken. (The canal tour we took in Amsterdam did not even come close.) We learned and saw so much. When we got hungry, Larae suggested a quick stop which worked... More
