Gerk was a perfect tour guide for our family. Our group included an 85 year old and a Type 1 Diabetic so he had to stop more than usual and... read more spent extra time with us. The tour was just as I hoped it would be. He took us to the countryside on a 6 plus hour tour on 06/29/19. We had a working windmill all to ourselves and stopped for coffee and lunch at two separate quiet local places. The next day he walked with us in Amsterdam and again avoided crowds while tailoring the tour to our needs. The whole family enjoyed him and I would highly recommend him over any other tour guide.
We so enjoyed our day tour spent with Gerk in Friesland. One of our group's family was originally from the Friesland area and he took us to cemeteries to see... read more her relatives headstones. He was so knowledgeable of the area and we learned so much. Highly recommend Gerk...he went above and beyond on his tour for us.
Our family spent two days with Gerk. The first day he picked us up promptly in our hotel lobby and took us around Amsterdam. It was a wonderful way to... read more see the city on foot and Gerk was full of information about the history and culture of the areas. He brought us to places we would never have found on our own. The second day he picked us up from our hotel lobby again and took us via his comfortable car to see some small towns and a working windmill. Once again he demonstrated great knowledge and was very patient with all of our questions. We enjoyed the tour of the windmill and the small towns as well as the wonderful lunch in a charming cafe. I would highly recommend Gerk and this company - the time spent with him was one of our favorite parts of our time in Amsterdam.
