We booked Rudy's Taxi Company for two days of private touring based on very favorable TripAdvisor reviews. We arrived in AMS airport after flying nonstop from Texas at 9 AM in the morning. We were met at a designated place in the airport by our tour guide Guillermo. His English was perfect, his Mercedes van parked nearby was impeccable inside and out. He was in a professional appearing suit which we told him he could lose after that first day, but he didn't! He saw we were pretty wiped out but his recommendation was to stay at it for 6-7 hours that day in order to get us somewhat on local time before checking into our hotel; a technique I had used several times in the past. We spent the day seeing some of the areas in this beautiful country, especially during the peak of tulip season.
The next morning, Guillermo was there to pick us up at 9 AM as wwe had asked, and we spent the day going through big cities and small towns - lunch at a small but excellent restaurant, a Gouda cheese factory, and much more. We were fully awake and enjoying that very full and wonderful day.
We had contracted Rudy's to shuttle us to our river cruise boat the next day, and Guillermo was there at 9:30 as requested and took charge of all our luggage, shuttled us to the specific spot where our ship was docked, got our luggage handled in conjunction with the people from the boat. We said goodbye to our new found friend and went on board.
Little did we know that we would end up back in the Netherlands two days before our departing flight. We contacted Rudy's, and the next morning Guillermo showed up on time and in his pristine Mercedes van! We were thrilled, especially after he took us on another day of touring Holland, then a day through parts of Belgium! Bruges is a fascinating city!
You can pick other guide services or just shuttle services in the Netherlands, but our group of two couples was so impressed with Rudy's, and specifically Guillermo, that if we ever get back to the Netherlands, we know who we will contact first after coordinating our air travel!
