Rating 4.8 based on 32 reviews

Fascinating and informative guided tour
Fascinating and informative guided tour about the history of the old Amsterdam neighbourhood ‘De Jordaan’. Guide Breklyn takes you to places tourists would not normally find by themselves, and some other hidden gems. Interesting places: the corridors of Willemstreet, Johnny Jordaan Square, Begijnhof (former Béguinage), Westerchurch, Homomonument, and so much more.
Historical Jordaan Walking Tour
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.

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.

I had 2 days in Amsterdam and would very much like to see the WHOLE of Amsterdam! There were so many Must Dos and such limited time. Thus, i decided to get myself a guide. I found Rolf on Tripadvisor, and true to the recommendations! Rolf was SUPERD, right from my 1st email. He was very responsive, providing me with many details, suggestions on how to structure my trip. I bombarded him with MANY emails, on the places i want to see etc and he never fails to patiently reply them. After the many emails, he truely feels like a long time friend!!

I finally settled on Red light district tour and a 5hr bike tour into the countryside as seeing the windmills were also one of my must-dos! Rolf picked me up for the RLD tour at my hotel. The tour was not only informative, but he also shared many fun stories on the RLD. On top of the RLD, he also made extra efforts to point out some little hidden "gems" of Amsterdam! Interesting little places, totally hidden from the main streets!.. I am sure MANY will MISS it.. if not for Rolf!!

The next day, i went on a bike tour around Amsterdam and into greater Amsterdam! Of course i got the picture of my windmill! Rolf definitely has a vast knowledge of architecture. Along the bike tour, he never fails to point out not only places of attractions, but also the different interesting architecture of Amsterdam. As a tourist, i find that very informative, and helps me remember places better! Rolf have that personal touch, easy going, always having a story in place. There was not one awkward silence given there were just him and me on the trip! In fact, as some reviews said, Rolf feels more like a long time buddy than a tour guide!

For anyone who wants to see Amsterdam, Rolf definitely the one!!! To me, the tour was beyond expectations. I wanted to see Amsterdam, he showed me the REAL Amsterdam and on top of that, i felt he also gave me a glimpse of the culture, history and even the lifestyle of the Dutch. Kudos to Rolf!

We arranged for a private guide through the Rijkesmuseum. We met Caspar at the appointed time and then proceeded to weave and wend our way through the Great Masters collection. It is amazing that you can get so close to these masterpieces and having Caspar quietly explaining them to you was magical. I can't imagine trying to do this on your own, with limited time and knowledge - why not let an expert take you through. We are so glad we found him on Trip Advisor, so much so, we booked him for the Van Gogh. Again, fabulous tour, wonderful explanations - very thought provoking. Do yourself a favor and book a tour - his prices are so reasonable, you will be thankful you did.

Localgrapher Got it Right!
I have used Localgrapher twice now in two different countries and I am very impressed with the professionalism that I was shown, from the reservation agent to the photographers they have arranged. We all know that it can be intimidating to use a fairly new technique of booking a photography session online without any knowledge of what could happen (not knowing if the booking agent will arrange a courteous and kind photographer or not having met the photographer before the session). At both times, everyone has been wonderful and the communication line was open. I highly recommend Localgrapher to everyone who would love to have wonderful memories of their travel.

absolutely amazing! the whole service is excellent and i would never have been able to pull this off without them. i would pay the price just to be able to discuss possible proposal locations!
the photographers we were assigned spent over a week travelling around Amsterdam trying to find locations perfect for me and my partner. they sent pictures back and forth with lots of information about the location, how to get to the location and how populated it tended to be at the time of the day we planned to be there.
i literally couldn't give this service anymore praise and if you are reading this review and are still on the fence....don't be...its amazing!

Surprise Wedding Proposal
We visited Amsterdam last week and I avail tripshooter "1hr. surprise wedding proposal" photo shoot. Everything went well according to plan and it was a great experience. They're very helpful in answering every questions I had and discussing every details of our plan. Elena our photographer was very professional, and really helps me a lot in coordinating everything. She's very kind and patient in guiding us during the photo shoot ( we're not that comfortable in front of the camera) and it was really a fun and enjoyable experience. The final photos looks amazing and very impressive, easy to download with very good quality. Thanks Tripshooter.

While I had seen a number of these paintings in art books, Caspar was able to provide history and nuance to the paintings. He compared the paintings to others being done at the same time. He also provided information about the painter's life which added meaning to the paintings. We did a group tour with him through the Rijk's museum and were so impressed that we requested a private tour with him through the Van Gogh museum. If you have any interest in art, you would find Caspar very helpful in understanding the various paintings in these museums.

We met up with 2 friends in Amsterdam who had pre-arranged a guided tour of the Van Gough Gallery with Casper. I arrived knowing nothing about Van Gough or his paintings and left feeling that I knew the artist personally and could interpret his mood in his works. That was the effect that Casper had on our tour. Casper knew which pictures to stop and talk about and which to pass by. His knowledge of his subject is excellent but he also has that gift of being able to communicate his passion to his patrons. He is highly recommended.
Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam Guided Tour
Wonderful!
Caspar was our guide for the Rijksmuseum a few days ago. He inquired as to what we wanted to see, and we were open for the experience as he liked. I was so impressed with the history and interpretations he provided us at many painting and several objects. Most importantly, there was time to reflect on the the possibilities present when the artist/master created the work. Caspar is also a working artist, and it is obvious that he enjoys what he’s doing. It was a fascinating tour. Excellent experience. Thank you, Caspar!

If you want to visit the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum and come away with a rewarding experience, I highly recommend Karolina. We only had one day to see both. She showed us all the highlights and provided just the right amount of in-depth details without information overload. We are not art buffs but we felt like ones after the tour. Then she took us for a lovely hands-on street tour of some of the Amsterdam neighborhoods. Very knowledgeable, great personality, and a real pro. Thanks Karolina.

Details of the Masters
Our guide, Casper, did exactly what we asked for, we saw a few paintings but were taught to look at them with new eyes.
I have a herniated disk which doesn’t allow me to stand in one place very long without my back paining me . This tour allowed me to sit on my sport seat in front of a painting (while others could look over my head) and listen carefully while the guide taught us to look st paintings differently.
It is important to be perfectly clear what your needs and limitations are.

I just wanted to take a minute to thank Rolf for THE BEST walking tour I have ever had - In Europe or anywhere. I am a 44 year old man and had my 14 year old daughter with me. He was fun, so knowledgeable, understood his audience, and made the journey personal. What a wonderful day! I would recommend Rolf to ANYONE seeking a greater understanding of the city, how and when it was founded, and where to go for fun. We had a blast, and my 14 year old still talks about it. Thank you Rolf!

Surprise Engagement Shoot
Hired a Melanie through trip shooter to capture the moment i proposed to my fiance on the first night of our trip to Amsterdam. Melanie went out in advance and came back with a location, time and plan to capture our perfect moment. She picked the perfect spot on a route from our hotel to where we were having dinner so it was still a surprise. She then walked us around a little and suggested some other nice spots to complete our shoot. The photos turned out great!

If Dr Karlonia isn't already a national treasure, she needs to be. Superlatives do not begin to paint the picture. she is all of that and more. Great communicator. Steeped in historical and local knowledge. Worldly in triangulating history (art, literature, architecture, social, political) and the human stories. a rare treat and worth sharing with others. two enthusiastic thumbs up for karolina !

Perfect
My experience with Localgrapher could not have been more seamless and pleasant. They were extremely responsive, even up to the day before when I asked to change the location of our shoot! The photographer was friendly and professional and the shoot went great. I would recommend Localgrapher to anyone looking to get really high quality photos on their vacation.
