5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

We took this tour about two months ago and found the sites we visited very well chosen as they fully met our interests and curiosity. We would like to put special emphasis on the exceptional competence of our guide, Maya SP, who every step of the way provided surplus information and commentary on Amsterdam, which otherwise we suspect would have been impossible to have. So, we would highly recommend both the tour and the guide. Moreover, we would recommend, and we ourselves would take, every tour with Maya as a guide.

Never thought much about Rembrandt until this tour. Our guide brought him to life from the house where he lived to his paintings in the Rijksmuseum. Ours was a private tour, just 4 of us. It was a great experience and I recommend it to everyone who visits Amsterdam.

Wonderful walking tour with Willem! Best tour we have ever taken! Very knowledgeable and thoughtful. He gave us lots of info on Rembrandt for 4 hrs as well as giving us wonderful information on Amsterdam the city, people and historical times. He spent at least an hour in the museum giving a wealth of information not only on Rembrandt but on the Rijksmuseum and how it had been built and remodeled!

We have learned many new and interested facts about Rembrandt, his master piece Night Watch, his artistic style, his contemporaries eg. Vermeer, from Daphne Duyne, our tour guide. Daphne is so passionate and knowledgeable about Rembrandt and other Dutch painting artist. It was a very nice and leisure walking from Rembrandt house to Rijksmuseum, we have also learned Dutch history along the way.

Guide was knowledgeable and had very good stories to share. We walked 15,000 steps he was tireless and always enthusiastic. Definitely recommend guide and the tour


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

We really enjoyed our tour and the ability to walk as fast or as slow as we wished or to linger when something interested us. Derek was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and the interesting little architectural items we never would have noticed on our own. I expected more of Rembrandt-focused tour, but Derek's information was much broader than that, encompassing the descriptions and history of each of the stops along the way, regardless of its association with Rembrandt. We found that very enlightening, since it was our first visit to Amsterdam.

A wonderful historical guided tour through Amsterdam by one of the best guides we have ever had. We were initially almost an hour late for our tour because it was our first day in Amsterdam and the starting location was confusing to us. Our guide waited patiently for and was wonderful.
