Private Holland Tours is specialized in affordable private guided tours for active singles, couples, families and small groups. I heartily welcome travelers from all countries of the world.My walking tours in Amsterdam often depart from the usual tourist routes, showing you the medieval city. Driving through the countryside I usually take the small scenic roads, thus giving you a better sense of Holland's rural environment.Professionalism, care and fun, plus my friendship are the cornerstones of my tours.Raymond Vandenburg, private driver/guide.

Ray was easy to communicate with via email and he was willing to do whatever we wished, if possible. He was prompt, had a great car, and was a talkative, genial host. Lots of laughing and very informative. We are proud of our Dutch heritage, and the day spent with Ray was fun to share with our daughter and granddaughter.... More

I booked this tour with Ray several months in advance and was so glad I did! It was more than just a tour, as Ray told us about the culture, knew the best place for lunch in addition to taking us through Kuekenhof! Loved the Cheese Farm and Windmill photo stop also. The van was very comfortable and it was... More

Leo picked us up at the Conservatorium hotel and was there waiting when we came down. Visited the tulip fields, Keukenhof, and Gouda. Also stopped a really nice spot for lunch. Keukenhof was breath taking, and I wouldn't do it any other way. We got right in, parked near the front, and explored the gardens. A lot of the buses... More

We had a wonderful day with Ray on Easter Monday taking in the Keukenhof and the surrounding area. Ray is punctual, charming and great company. He was great fun and informative and very happy to go with our flow. We were a mixed family group: two in our early 40s and two in our early 70s. Ray was extremely attentive... More

We had Ray for two tours last week. He did a great job showing us around Keukenhoff and then on a countryside and lakes tour. We loved the flowers and he also took us to a great lunch! He was also great with our two small children!

Ray led us through a fantastic day from beginning to end. The flowers, windmills, wooden shoes, cheese, and pottery were all fantastic. We also enjoyed the people of Holland that Ray introduced us to. We highly recommend Ray and his private Holland tours. A truly enjoyable day.

Our family of 4 (2 kids under 13) spent the day with Ray touring the countryside around Amsterdam. Ray picked us up right at our hotel in central Amsterdam in his clean and comfortable vehicle. Then we visited a series of sights, from small villages (interesting architecture), to a functioning windmill (far more interactive and fascinating than expected), to a... More

We had no issue leaving Schiphol and reentering Schiphol , though you have to clear customs and security. We showed our boarding passes and... More

Dear John & Scott, Thank you very much for the outstanding review. It was a pleasure to tour you along the engineering sites, narrating the story about creating land and how we try to save our souls from the atrocious sea. I'm hoping to meeting you again in the nearby future. Regards, Ray Vandenburg, PRIVATE HOLLAND TOURS. More

We recently visited Amsterdam in Nov. 2016 It was a last minute trip and luckily Ray had time to assist us. It was just 2 adults (age 50ish). Ray was personable AND knowledgeable. We did the airport pick up and tour, so got a good overview upon arrival from USA. Next day we did museums/Ann Frank (we secured own tickets,... More
