We were absolutely delighted with Hans. Right from the initial contact, he was extremely helpful, He always answered my questions promptly, and put a great deal of thought to his answers. Hans was interested in all my requests and made many very helpful suggestions. He drew up an itinerary, altered it several times to fit in my wishes then right before we were due to start he ammended it again as our daughter in London wished to join us but not for the entire time. Hans put a lot of research into all the ... view more places we visited, and was a very knowledgeable guide. He has an excellent relationship with the staff at the various places and made sure we were not kept waiting for any tours etc. and took care that we were at the right places at the right times for various events. He was able to answer our questions and made it his business to find out more information if needed. He had contingency plans for wet weather and every long day was well planned.
We have no complaints at all, and we know we saw as much of Holland as we possibly could have. Hans went beyond what was expected, and arranged accommodation etc for the days before and after the tour. It was great being able to do all this from home knowing that once we left New Zealand and were ready for the Holland part of our holiday, we could just look forward to him meeting us at the airport. Hans and his wife have become dear friends. Without doubt I give him 10 for all catergories and would not hesitate to recommend him.
