Jeroen van Rijn gave us a tour of two museums, Van Gogh and Rijks. It was fabulous. I’ve lived in art museums my whole life so knew the art, but Jeroen provided a context to the art that I had missed. History, the culture swirling behind the masters art. I highly recommend. By the end of the day my legs were shot but I had new knowledge about the art of Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Vermeer, along with all the lesser known masters who influenced their art.

Really enjoyed our few hour private tour with Tom. We had arrived from the states that morning and met with Tom late am. Didn't want anything too fast paced or technical. Tom gave us a nice lay of the land, we got our bearings and he took us to some memorable spots. We highly recommend Tom!

We booked two tours with Tom. The first was a four hour walking tour of Amsterdam with Jacky. She took us through the Jordaan neighborhood, to the local market and some back streets. Jacky was very knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. The experience highlighted things we might have missed on our own. Then, we spent five hours with Tom, touring the countryside. We visited a windmill, rode bikes to a lighthouse and saw some charming country villages. Tom was very informative and interesting. We gained a lot of perspective about a country mostly below sea level. The two tours really made our trip much more enjoyable and memorable. Highly recommend!

We spent an entire day with Tom on a tour of the countryside. Tom was extremely responsive throughout the booking process and successfully selected destinations that he thought would appeal to my family. He's knowledgeable, friendly and energetic. I highly recommend his guide service. In addition, Tom himself takes photographs during the expedition and sends a link to them afterward.
