Chloe was wonderful, and we enjoyed her presentation of the Dutch characteristics that has developed the country: trade, pragmatism, and tolerance. She has great recommendations for things to do and see, and we really enjoyed hearing the other participants ask questions. Great tour!

Super nice to have a native endorsement for our guides. Really helps them to further appreciate what they are doing as ministers of another culture. Which we as citizens are part of. But being an immigrant yourself you might understand. Your comments are much appreciated.

We did not find it a strenuous tour at all. The walking is on basically flat streets with frequent breaks for when the tour guide talks about an area, and we had a break in the middle of it for snacks (and using a bathroom... More
