Gerk was a very knowledgeable and thoughtful tour guide. Met us promptly at our hotel in Amsterdam. He was prepared for various contingencies; Umbrellas, water, snacks. Lunch and... read more admissions were included. We did his 6 hour tour to the north of Amsterdam. Loved seeing the countryside and learning about Dutch history through the eyes of a native away from the crowds and tour buses. Highly recommended. …

What a wonderful day with Gerk, absolute gentleman, interesting , safe driving and best of all visits to beautiful places away from the crowds. Delicious lunch with a view over... read more farmland and a canal. He even managed to pick the wind up enough to start the blades of the windmill!
One of our best tours on holidays and just what we needed after the torturous flight from Australia, relaxing, informative and spectacular scenery. Highly recommend.

Gerk was an excellent tour guide! Personable, so very knowledgeable, always exactly on time and we were never in a rush. He took us away from the crowds... read more - which are maddening in Amsterdam - and educated us about the history of his country. We visited a working windmill not frequented by tourists and travelled around The Netherlands with ease. 5 days we were together walking, in the car, touring little villages and big cities. We could not have asked for anything more! Well worth every minute! …
