Private Holland Tours is specialized in affordable private guided tours for active singles, couples, families and small groups. 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.

It was a beautiful day and the gardens were so pretty, even though it was the end of the 'season'. Ray encouraged us to go on to Delft and we were not sorry. It is a beautiful small town that looks a bit like Amsterdam...More

I simply posted a review of Tours by Locals. I do not myself provide tours and therefore cannot provide a private tour. Go to the tours by locals website.
