Owner description: Hi everybody! I am a genuine guide for Amsterdam and the Netherlands, I have been living here for the past 20 years and I will love to show you around in a fun and relaxed way. I have my own car as well so we can take a trip to the Beautiful Country Side and see the Windmills as well

The perfect guide!
Mariya will talk (inform) you as much, or as little, as you wish... and she could even answer my "crazy history questions".
The weather was so clear that day, that I suddenly asked if we could also visit Zaanse Schans, the Windmill area (45 mins away); she had a guy with a van at the ready, within 30minutes!
The following day, Mariya even arranged a private boat for me to cruise the waterways on my own for an hour.
All very professional (... besides, if you are going to spend 6-hours with someone, it might as well be the most beautiful guide in town, right?).

Mariya was excellent! Easy to adapt to our requests. Always full of information but not overbearing unlike some typical Russian tour guides. Knows anecdotes, not just the dry history. We were very happy with essentially all of her restaurant recommendations. Communication was super easy in English or Russian.

We wanted to see the 19 century Dutch paintings. Mariya took us to three museums: Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, The Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo and The Mesdag Collection in The Hague. We saw an amazing collection of Dutch, French and Italian paintings among the others. Thanks to Mariya’s clear and short explanation we had enough time and opportunity to ask questions. Next to Van Gogh’s work and life story, Dutch landscapes was striking to me above all, as the works by The Hague School master like J. Israel.
Our three days of museum visit became also a kind of city tours with culinary highlights, because of Mariya's choice of restaurants and cafes which we visited before or after the museum visits.
As The Kröller-Müller Museum is in the dunes (wild and mountainous Dutch countryside;)) Mariya managed bikes for us to cycle in the dunes, around the museum. Which eventually became an exceptional day, also thanks to the nice weather. It was funny to see Mariya with her elegant dress on the bike, cycling like a really Dutch;))
So, if you are jealous of our this experience with Mariya, just call her.
