We had a great guide to the Hague and Delft with my family (two young boys 11 and 12 years) with Gerk who was a great storyteller. We highly recommend him

Gerk is a great storyteller and fantastic guide! We've learned so much about Amsterdam! We only spent 3 days in Amsterdam, so it was important to us to have a qualified and knowledgeable guide, who could give us an impressive private tour. It was a wonderful experience. We highly recommend him!

We had free time in Amsterdam before boarding our river boat and decided to have a private tour guide show us the Dutch countryside.

Gerk picked us up early in the morning from our accommodation as arranged some months prior to our tour of Europe. He was informative and very knowledgeable without overpowering us with too much information.

We decided to experience the northern countryside of the Netherlands with a private tour guide and Gerk was perfect!

Gerk picked us up in his car and took us to the Keukenhof Gardens. He let us wander around seeing the tulips on our own, but his experience getting us there and into the gardens made it much easier and faster than any other method.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
