When you are ready to confirm your Holland Private Tour:
Stefka knew that we had already spent a few days in Amsterdam and hence had seen most of its popular highlights, she took us on an 'off the beaten path' walking tour of parts of the city and sights that we hadn't seen and didn't even know existed. It was eye opening and fascinating. After the Tour, we were dropped back to our Hotel, very happy that Stefka had given us an unforgettable day!
This was a great tour. Niels, our tour guide, truly made it a great experience. He was both knowledgeable, personable, and engaging. We did a delightful walking tour of the city and then traveled out into the country for a windmill visit, a seaside lunch, and a trip to a cheese maker's shop. I would highly recommend this tour and would specifically ask for Niels!
We had a great experience exploring Amsterdam and its surroundings. Our guide Stefka perfectly fit the tour to our needs and made sure we all had a wonderful time from my 80 year old parents to my inquisitive 13 year old son. With my 16 year old in a wheelchair travel is always more challenging, but Stefka took care of all the special arrangements he requires and made this vacation memorable for all of us. I can highly recommend her to anyone who seeks a deeper understanding of the Netherlands and its people.
We had a wonderful day with Stefka. She was very personal and flexible. We had asked to be shown places in Amsterdam that she usually does not cover, but she read up on these places and was very informative. She was able to fit in everything we wanted to see in a very relaxing and enjoyable day.
