Our guide, Steven Atterson, treated us to a wonderful day in Geithoorn and Hasselt. The trip gave us a new experience in the Netherlands, combined with interesting history and discussion along the way. He took us to a local restaurant, with the best pea soup I have ever had. The entirety of the day felt like a traditional and local Netherlands experience. Steven is knowledgeable and easy to be with for the day. I highly recommend him as your guide for any Netherlands tour you desire to take.

We had the pleasure of traveling with Steve for not only one day- but two! First found Private Day Tours Amsterdam from a quick google search and after a look at the website, prices, and trip advisor we called and booked the Dutch Countryside & Windmills Tour for the following day. The website was not showing availability but upon calling we were delighted to find that it was in fact available so be sure to call and check if showing no availability. We started our day visiting Zaanse Schanns and Steve was fantastic. He took us to all the highlights and routes that avoided the tourist crowd but still providing the full experience. He is so knowledgeable and we had a great time exploring the inside and climbing up and into the windmill with him. Even though it was paid entry Steve still accompanied us and it was so nice to have him and is expansive knowledge there with us- made us appreciate the experience that much more and of course helped us get some great photos we wouldn’t have been able to ourselves! From there we went to a local Dairy to enjoy some delicious cheese followed by lunch in Volendam at a local restaurant that specialized in Eel, a local delicacy and it did not disappoint. Ventured around the fishing village of Volendam and then to Monnickendam before heading back to Amsterdam. The best part of the day is that it was entirely customizable and Steve encouraged it to be so. Would highly recommend Private Day Tours Amsterdam over and over again as we did ourselves and were so excited Steve was available the following day for a spontaneous trip to Goethoorn. Be sure to look up (insert co name here) when in Amsterdam for a fantastic tour, service, and an experience you will never forget!

We had a great day on our private tour with Steve. He was very knowledgeable regarding the history of the Netherlands and all the interesting places we visited. Steve worked with us to customise a full day day which included the lovely village of Giethoorn, Zaanse Schans, a cheese factory and wooden shoe factory. We all felt at ease with his style and sense of humour. We would highly recommend his services and special thanks to Marlou for her prompt email responses.
