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.

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!

Only if you want the best of the best!
Amsterdam is crazy popular town and so there are many tour agencies to choose from.
Most of the them are run-of-the-mill. “Your Own Holland” is *completely* different. Anastasia is in love with that town and knows more about it that (I suspect:) most natives. She will take you to cute little streets you would have never found yourself and answer questions you secretly wondered, but were afraid to ask (why so many buildings look like they are titling forward and how do you get a piano up the Dutch stairs?).
Not only she is super knowledgeable, she has a lovely personality and great organizational skills.
We’ve had three tours with her so far and every one was as different as it was amazing.
Pick this one.
You won’t be sorry.

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.

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.

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!

Fantastic quality time in Amsterdam
I visited many tours with Your Own Holland (Amsterdam highlights, Amsterdam Jordan area, Jewish Amsterdam, Haarlem, Leiden, tours in farms) and every time I get so much positivity, knowledge, exciting facts, stories to remember, stories to share with friends and family and most importantly, their team is just fantastic! Each guide is extremely knowledgeable, very warm and pleasant person.

Happy to visit again and again!

My husband and I had an amazing time in Amsterdam and it would not have been possible without our guide: kind, wise and great. Not only did he showed us the city, but he truly described every part of it with both information and anecdotes. Our experience was definitely heightened by him.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Karla. Her approach to our tour of the Rijksmusuem was unique, personal and illuminating. So many interesting details shared with warmth and charm. Our appreciation of the Masters has increased immensely. Be sure to ask for Karla!!

Very good tour and helpful guide
Karla arranged getting our tickets and met us at the Rijksmuseum for a 2 hour overview tour. All worked smoothly. Karla has an excellent background/education and was very clear and articulate in discussing the art, history and architecture of the museum. She also started in the ship section of the museum which was fascinating and area we likely would have not spent time on ourselves. She was quite helpful at the end of the tour and gave us suggestions for the rest of our stay in Amsterdam. I highly recommend taking an overview tour like this as the museum is large and can be overwhelming!

The pictures are very good quality and beautiful!

Disappointed
Karolina was unable to make an appointment at our requested time. I asked if she knew anyone else. She was gracious and found someone for us, however he was not very knowledgeable on the art. We would have been better off taking the self tour. He was very nice and friendly, but it was not what we expected, nor was it worth the price. Probably won't try this site again. :(
