Peter was so friendly and helpful. We were late and he had no problem with it, which we appreciated. He picked us up and a Mercedes Benz sedan. the vehicle was so comfortable and he was a good driver. We had a great time on the Canal cruise with only four other people in it, we had an hour to explore the village on our own. We loved the Village It was so magical and surreal.

Bram was excellent as he shared his knowledge of the Dutch history and countryside with us. We had a lovely ride through the countryside as we made our way to Giethorn. He arranged a great canal and nature reserve boat tour for us. It was great to hear about his life in the Netherlands. We would definitely book another tour with Bramsterdam.

We had a great day with Simon and Keto. Two of the best tour guides you could ever ask for!! As I have told my kids since they were little; it is not the places we visit but the people we meet along the way. Thanks for making the day with our family so enjoyable!!

This tour was very interesting and my family truly enjoyed our time in Giethoorn. It is worth the day trip out of Amsterdam.

Perfect tour, excellent driver and tour guide - Yohan was very, very customer-centric.
