The #1 Private Day Tours in Amsterdam!

Look no further. Steven Attersol is the best !

He is a certified expert and experienced VIP tour guide and it shows. I learned more in the first 30 at the van Gough museum than I ever known before. The back story of the artist that Steven provided by was so compelling that my wife Debbie and I were hanging on every word. He guided us through the crowed museum in a way that we never felt rushed or pressured. His knowledge of van Gogh and art in general is encyclopaedic. .After our tour we relaxed at the De Gooyer windmill enjoying a snack and a delicious beer. We can’t wait to come back to Amsterdam and enjoy some of the countryside tours offered by Steven.

If you want to create unbelievable memories, look no further!

What can we say about Steven and Private Day Tours Amsterdam?? In one word, AMAZING! Went with my husband and 2 young girls (5 and 8) and spent 3 FANTASTIC DAYS. We loved that we could take things at our own pace - when the girls wanted to stop to pet a baby lamb or feed ducks there was no sense of rushing us - it made it feel so relaxed and natural, like Steven was part of the family...a very knowledgeable part of the family! :) He read our cues effortlessly, and each suggestion was perfect - when to stop for hot cocoa or a snack, and the best place to do it on top of that. Steven is an amazing tour guide, and he aims to please. Everything was amazing, and he was a great driver - that's an important one for me as I usually get motion sick if I'm not driving but not with Steven!

Perfect day tour, unique and off the beaten track!

This was absolutely my favourite day in the Netherlands. We were picked up right on time, if not slightly early, by our tour guide Steve. This was our second private tour with Steve this week, so we knew it would be great. We went to Gouda, and we were so lucky that it was market day! Music playing, wheels of cheese, and stroopwafle! The Gouda town hall is stunning. After walking around Gouda we were off to a REAL cheese farm! Then we were off to Oudewater. This magical little city was breathtaking, I swear we were the only tourists there. We went to the weighing station, turns out I’m not a witch and have the certificate to prove it. This tour was one of the best day tours we’ve ever been on!

A Wonderful Day

We had a wonderful day with Steve. First an enjoyable and informative walking tour of Delft. Then a visit to the Mauritshuis Museum in The Hague to see some beautiful paintings (including Vermeer's View on Delft, which we were able to compare to the city we had just seen). Finally a nice walking tour of The Hague. Steve is personable, knowledgeable, interesting, and professional, and it made for a great fully-packed day. Thanks, Steve!

Wonderful 3 days touring with Steve!

We enjoyed THREE DAYS with Steve while visiting Amsterdam. He was an excellent, knowledgeable guide and catered to all our wishes. I highly recommend and will definitely use him again when we return to Amsterdam.

VERY insightful guide - learn more about the history while enjoying the countryside.

I would highly recommend this tour. Steve gave us more in our tour than we could ask for. We got the story behind the story. Not only did we get to enjoy the countryside of the Netherlands - we learned about the history of how it was developed, etc. We drove by the home that Anne frank lived in before going into hiding, her bookstore then took a day trip to Zaanse Schans, Edam, Volendam, Marken. Steve was amazing. We spent about 9 hours with him. He took us to places away from the tourists - we had a delightful lunch and our 17 year old DEVOURED the smoked eel. THANK you Steve for a trip we will treasure for a lifetime.

Fabulous Tour of Giethoorn.

SEVEN absolutely fabulous day’s with Steve as our guide! We saw windmills, fishing villages, clog making, cheese farm and so much more all while Steve told us the history behind it all. He also translated as we stopped to talk to locals and really get a feel for each area we visited. When you’re ready for a break, you decide if you want to sit and eat or just stop at local eateries or breweries and Steve will take you to the tastiest places. He sensed when we were ready to move on and if something interested us or just happened as we walked by, we stopped to enjoy. Thank you Captain Steve for the wonderful time we had with you.

Awesome day with fabulous guide

Our guide Steve was one of the best guides we have ever had. He continually asked us what was important to us to see and learn about so he could customize the day to our desires. Having been a guide for several years, he was very knowledgeable about the area and its history and was very. He is very personable and speaks excellent English. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this trip and this guide.

Amazing tour of Amsterdam!

Steve led us on a terrific tour through Amsterdam. He was very knowledgeable and showed us places that connected us to the history of Amsterdam. This walking tour gave us an in-depth knowledge to the Jewish quarter, a subject he was very passionate about. I highly recommend experiencing a tour with Steve!

Custom Tour: Unique Dutch Experience

Steve is an excellent guide. We learned a lot about the Netherlands and the places we went to. He customized the trip to suit our needs/taste. For example, he noticed that my niece was fond of cows so he took us to the cheese farm that tended them. In Volendam, we had lunch at a lake-side restaurant that was more frequented by locals than tourists. A truly one-of-a-kind experience!
