“A piece of Dutch that we can bring back home”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We took Dutch traditional clothing picture in the Foto de Boer ,seems that this shop is recommended by our tour operator.Huge Dutch traditional clothing and wooden shoes comes in all sizes for men and women.A bit hectic inside because a small shop packed with almost 40 tourists.We liked the picture very much ,and its something new to us.Instant printing available.A piece of Dutch you can bring back home ,nice memory of our visit to the Netherlands.Worthed to try

“Nice but be careful”
Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

The first thing in my mind when l visit Holland was l had to take picture with Dutch traditional clothing. A friend of mine recommended De Broer as one of the oldest foto shop. I read some of the reviews here and there, so l chose this place to take pictures with my family.

Besides photo outlet, De Broer has a souvenir shop on the first floor. The price is OK, even cheaper compare to some other shops. The process of getting a picture is also well-organized.

However, one thing that really needs to be carefully considered by both the owner and the customers is the security. On our visit, my sister lost her bag with all her valuables. Fortunately, she kept her passport with her body bag. She put her bag in the locker, but there was no key available. But we felt safe, so we just put all of our bags in 2 separate lockers. One with key and the other one without key. After the photo session, all of our bags were there but her bag was missing.

Since the place is perhaps always pretty much crowded, the owner should make sure that the key for every locker is always available, so that the customer can safely keep their belongings in the locker. Also, perhaps having Recorded CCTVs would also be a good idea, in case there's something wrong happen during the photo session and also for the sake of security.

For the customers, you will be asked to keep your belongings in the provided lockers. Make sure that the locker has a key for your own safety.
