Denis_C, Sept 2023
The driver did not show up. We waited in 15 minutes in the rain for the driver and we got no call from him and he never showed up.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Dear Denis, I am so sorry that this happened to you. When we spoke on the phone I had no idea what had happened to your driver/ guide either, and I (like you) also couldn't get in touch with him. Very strange! When I spoke to you on the phone that morning, I first apologized and tried to get you another guide, but unfortunately wasn't able to solve this on such short notice, and I gave you a full refund. I totally understand your disappointment and although this is not your problem or your concern, I still want to inform you that the reason that your driver didn't show that day, was because he had a stroke that morning and was hospitalized for it That being the reason none of us could reach him at that time. Again, not to make an excuse, merely to inform you what happened so that you maybe understand that it was a case of bad luck..and not of bad intention. I hope you still had a nice time in Amsterdam and I wish you all the best. Kind regards, Rudy
It cover all our expectaciones and even more
margarita_c, Sept 2023
It was impreso e to see the windmills, how were the tradicional dhows were and are made. The downtown Ámsterdam and the delicioso cheeses we bought
Layover Tour , excellent with Geert.
Ivonne_O, Sept 2023
Wow what a tour! Geert was amazing, our flight delayed going into Amsterdam and what was suppose to be a 7 hour layover turned into 5 hours. Yet still, this tour was filled with amazing sights. Geert did everything possible to show us all around , he was an excellent host. Made sure we truly enjoyed some memorable locations in the heart of Amsterdam. And took us back to airport with enough time to catch a flight out! Just let him know what interests you and he will make it happen. Definitely recommend for a layover there is lots to see and do!
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Dear Ivonne, Thank you for your kind review. I will forward this also to Geert. Thank you. All the best, Rudy
Amazing Tour, Classy Service!

Darlene_T, July 2023
Our driver, Jerry was wonderful. He showed us all the things we wanted to see and was very courteous. We had a wonderful day. He met us at the cruise terminal and dropped us off with plenty of time at the end. Recommend without reservation.
Response from Host, July 2023
Dear Darlene, Thank you for your review. I will forward this to Jerry also. All the best, Rudy
Amsterdam at its best
Bruce_K, July 2023
We did a 5hour tour in Amsterdam with our driver Jerry. I had suggested we were interested in some WWII sites or locations and we were pleasantly surprised by the information and locations available. Jerry was superb. His knowledge of the city and the locations we visited was a huge part of our satisfaction with the time we spent. Our thanks to Viator and Jerry for a wonderful visit.
Response from Host, July 2023
Dear Bruce, Thank you for your review. I have send this also to Jerry and also he was glad to read this. Kind regards, Rudy

Perfect way to spend a long layover. We are really glad we booked this tour. We saw so much, in a few hours.
Response from Host, July 2023
Dear Abbey, thank you for your review. Kind regards, Rudy
Wonderful way to spend first day after long flight!
Sheryl_H, June 2023
We had a wonderful time. Our driver was respectful, helpful, and took us on a driving tour of the city, that we had not expected. I currently have mobility issues, and our driver was very considerate and helpful. Would definitely recommend this to others.
Response from Host, July 2023
Dear Sheryl, Thank you for your review. I have forward this also to your driver/guude for that day, Geert. All the best, Rudy
Not recommended.
Joe_C, June 2023
While our guide was polite, he was not sure what was to be done during this tour. He did a quick drive by all the sights. It was not by any means a comprehensive tour. More like a glorified Uber drive from our cruise ship to the hotel. When I asked him to stop at Zaanse Schans so we can get out and actually see the village, he said he doesn't usually do that as there is a 15 Euro parking fee which is not included. So if we did not insist on getting out, we would have seen the windmills in a 30 second drive by and called it a day. I do not recommend this tour as it is not worth the cost.
Response from Host, June 2023
Dear Joe, Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you are disappointed in the tour you've done with us, although I don't completely understand why. Your driver/guide went with you to see downtown Amsterdam, you made a walking tour with him on the island of Marken, did fish tasting in Volendam, visit a cheese farm to see the stable with the cows and he took you to the windmills of Zaanse Schans. I have understand from your driver that you where disappointed in the first place because the tulip fields where not "included" in the tour. But the tulip fields are only open from the end of March till beginning of May. Robin parked opposite Zaanse Schans to avoid the crowd and parking fee and he went with you to visit the windmills. The comparison with a glorified Uber driver I find a little strange, as you had a very experienced driver/guide with you. I am not sure what you where expecting to see during a 5 hour tour, but I think he managed to show you a lot of sites during the available time frame. With kind regards, Rudy

Sunny our tour guide has a wealth of knowledge to tell the history of the windmills. He is awesome and we had a lot of fun with him. If you need a tour in Amsterdam he is the guy to take you to interesting places.
Response from Host, June 2023
Dear Michael, Thank you for your review. Always good to hear..:) I will forward this review also to Sunny. Kind regards, Rudy
Excellent guide!
Deborah_B, Feb 2023
Peter was an excellent guide! He understood our interests and took us to the best spots, allowing us to use our time efficiently to maximize our sightseeing. He also provided breaks for hot chocolate, cheese and “pancakes”. Peter was also an excellent driver and very informative on the system of dikes used to re-claim land and prevent flooding. Peter was a delightful person to spend an afternoon with and he enhanced our knowledge and enjoyment of the windmills and the area around Amsterdam.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Dear Debora, thank you for your kind review. Good to hear this, I have forward your compliments also to Peter. All the best, kind regards, Rudy
Layover tour! :))

Response from Host, Feb 2022
Dear Katrina, thank you for your review. Enjoy your further holiday and I hope to welcome you some other day to show you the tulip fields!
