Private tour from Amsterdam

Best excursion we have ever had. Rudy's Taxi Service is conscientious and thoughtful and keep in touch. Our tour guide was fantastic. Knowledgeable, fun and took us to visit all of the best spots in Amsterdam.
We had a great day touring the countryside with Rene. He showed us the windmills, Volendam, and dairy cows. We wanted to see out of the way sites and he obliged. Had a great lunch in a small harbor town, a drive down a lane with country homes, and a castle in Muiderslot. Rene is a wonderful guide and we got a great taste of country life in the Netherlands. He even arranged a car to take us to airport the next day.

Renate, our guide, was very friendly, informative, and considerate. She took her time to explain the history and show us around Amsterdam in a way only a local can. We had just landed a couple of hours prior and were pretty jet lagged, but she still took her time to show us everything she could that interested us. She even took us to an amazing local cheese shop and dessert shop. I highly recommend booking this tour. You will not be disappointed. Unless you go often or are with a local, it would be difficult to see or know the places she took us too. Do not hesitate to book this tour.
Danny gave us a great 4-hour tour of Amsterdam. We're able to see all of the major sites and get a great history and perspective of how Amsterdam has developed over many many years. We especially appreciated having prepaid tickets and going on a houseboat,that was a unique experience. Great job, thank you.

Paola was a wonderful guide. Her enthusiasm for the artist and his works was so evident and she really made each piece come alive. She answered our questions so thoughtfully. I would certainly recommend her. The museum was a great addition to our vacation.

We loved this tour!! Our guide, Ray, was lovely and a local to Zaanse Schans! She knew all about the area, the history and everything really! She was wonderful, great person to spend a few hours with exploring a new area. We took the private tour and had full control over the day, pace and where we wanted to stop in and such. The little town of Zaanse Schans was really interesting and beautiful! We went in mid September and there weren’t too many people, quite peaceful actually. We got great photos too, with less people! We got to climb to the top of a windmill which I wasn’t expecting on this tour and was a real treat!! The tour could also start and stop where we wanted, pick up and drop off in Amsterdam could be where we please and the company was very communicative about it. I even had to change our pickup location the day before and all was well.
I’ll have memories made from this day for life and would highly recommend to anyone! :)
Absolutely fantastic tour. Our host, Ingrid, was brilliant and made the visit into something special. It was a perfect way to spend the morning and I would recommend the tour and in particular the guide to everybody. Ingrid's knowledge of Dutch history was second to none.

Private tour to Rotterdam,The Hague and Delft From Amsterdam
From $700.28 per group
, Oct 2019
Our guide was named Mike. If you get him, you will be very lucky. Mike was friendly, knowledgeable, well informed, courteous, and flexible with regard to where went, when we went there, and what we saw. We got to see everything we hoped to see; and Mike made sure that we got every minute of the tour to which we were entitled. He was even kind enough to wait for us at our hotel after the tour so we could do a quick change and then he took us to the restaurant where we had dinner reservations. One day is not enough to see all three cities; as each one had something special to offer. If given the opportunity, I would take the tour all over again and we could see different things in each city. We were surprised by The Hague (much more than the international court) and by Delft (what a gem). Take this tour. You will not be disappointed. It was a great experience.
Mike was very personable and knowledgeable. He tried very hard to make my wife and I happy throughout the long day on the road. We went to Haarlem, Leiden, Delft, The Hague, The Black Sea and Rotterdam. Lots of places to see and enjoy! The hightlights included a stop at a Delft factory and the museum displaying Vermeer's "The Girl With The Pearl Earing". We had a chance to see what life is like outside of Amsterdam. In addition, Mike is an accomplished musician and we enjoyed discussing our mutual preferred musicial artists. We highly recommend this tour with Mike.
Pedro, our guide, was excellent..he was very knowledgeable and personable. Our driver, Ibrahim, was also very helpful getting us in and out of the van. It was a very hot day and, unfortunately, the vehicle had no air conditioning, but we made the best of it. Would highly recommend.

What a way to see the city! Our guide was so awesome. We were 45 min late (I got my times mixed up) and then we had to cut the tour a bit short because we had last minute tickets to the Anne Frank Museum but the guide was really cool about it and made it work. And I was not an easy tourist to work with - I could barely ride a bike but he was so understanding about it, making me feel at ease.

From $269.02 (Price varies by group size )
, Oct 2019
We booked this private tour with high expectations. The transportation was superb. Our guide was good but not great. Of the 7 windmills at the same place, only one was available without addition 5 Euro charge for each. The demonstration of making wooden shoes by machine was interesting and set a stage for the next stop where we saw them made by hand. There we were also given a talk about how cheese is made in this small factory. Very interesting, We drove to another town and had a delicious lunch. After that, we went to a terribly tacky tourist trap of a town where there was nothing but junk. This was a total waste of time in our opinion.

Wonderful tour with our guide Tony! Tony is really the best, it felt like doing a tour with a friend. From the start we had so much fun. With this tour you learn so much about the history of the Red Light District and the legalization of prostitution. The tour is at your own pace and Tony was great at answering all of our questions. Highly recommended!
We were expecting a tour of the red light district and museum. We spent ages walking around what was not the red light district and our guide referred to our tour as one with a 'coffee shop' visit (we don't do drugs and did not book a drug tour!) On the whole, disappointed.
