Van Gough museum
Karla was amazing, her knowledge made the tour highly entertaining.
She is a wonderful lady and also gave some insights of the city on the way to the Museum which was a real bonus.
Highly recommend booking Kala.
Fantastic and very informative tour. We loved sharing our time with Karla
Karla provided our group with a historical walking tour of Amsterdam as well as a guided tour of the Van Gogh and Rijks museums. Her knowledge is only surpassed by her wonderful personality. The background information that she provided was at the right level i.e. not too little but not too much. She was absolutely OUTSTANDING!

A master class taught by an expert.
Karla was remarkable. She spent three hours with us. First setting the stage in the museum cellar, then ascending into the rest of the building. She got us through crowds and positioned us to enable getting a senses not just of the art but if the historical context. Karla is outstanding.
Fantastic tour - made the entire experience more interesting
Dutch hospitality at its best!
Can not say enough about how friendly and knowledgeable Rolf was during our time together. We now have much deeper insight into Dutch history, government, and lifestyle. The visit to the cheese factory was incredible, not a tourist in sight other than us. No lines, no crowds, and prices the locals pay.

We were never hurried and his goal was to provide a customized day based on our interests, not his.

Rolf deserves 10 stars and we will remember our time with him forever.
