I heartily welcome travelers from all countries of the world.My walking tours in Amsterdam often depart from the usual tourist routes, showing you the medieval city. Driving through the countryside I usually take the small scenic roads, thus giving you a better sense of Holland's rural environment.Professionalism, care and fun, plus my friendship are the cornerstones of my tours.Raymond Vandenburg, private driver/guide. « less

Private Tours Holland was a wonderful experience for us! Ray was an incredible guide. He picked us up at 9:00am in our hotel lobby and spent the entire day with us - we learned so much and just really enjoyed his company along the way. Not only will we use his services again, we will recommend him to everyone going... More

Ray picked us up on time at our hotel and provided an excellent day long tour of northern Holland. Lots of local history, humor and small villages. When we stopped for morning coffee and the wait was too long, he quickly moved us a few doors down to another shop for better service. He knows the territory! We would highly... More

Ray was most enjoyable to spend the day with. He was prompt to pick us up for our full day tour of the Waterland area and his pleasant personality made us immediately we feel comfortable with him. The small quaint villages of Marken, Monnickendam and Edam were the highlights of the tour for all of us. As he drove he... More

We had a great trip with Ray. He picked us up right at our hotel and navigated all the bikes and the traffic. We went on a tour of the famous tulip fields at Keukenhof. There was no waiting in line as Ray knew exactly where to go and had our passes ready to go. After experiencing Keukenhof, we went... More

My family and I traveled to The Netherlands for two weeks this May. One day, Ray picked us up from our hotel in Amsterdam and drove us to Keukenhof. He told us history and stories the entire trip and was very entertaining. He walked us through the gardens and helped us avoid the crowds. After our trip to the gardens... More

We booked a trip with Ray to go through the greenheart and he definitely delivered. He planned a route according to some specific items we wished to see (The Bonte Koe in Leiden), he was on time and was engaging throughout the entire trip. We did go on a Sunday and Leiden was quite lively. Gouda and Oudewater were still... More

In Ray you get much more than a guide. He more a knowledgeable traveling companion with a keen interest in what you think and like and less the guide who spews out the well digested tour guide fare. For us he was perfect but if you prefer the standard by the book guide who will give you well digested guide... More

We hired Ray for full day tour of the Keukenhof and Windmills at Zaanse Schans. I'm happy to say that Ray exceeded our expectations. He was friendly, knowledgeable, entertaining and patient with our two young girls, making the effort to present information on their level, show them things that are interesting to kids and stopping to take time to let...

I had hired Holland Tours on April 30,2014 and May 1. The first day was with Raymond Vandenburg, the second day with his son Leo. It is certain that neither of them had training to be tour guides. They knew virtually nothing about Amsterdam and their country, and sometimes I had the feeling that even elementary school children would give... More
