Nous avons passé un délicieux we à Amsterdam, merci.
La visite du Rijksmuseum avec Giullia fut excellente : elle a bcp de connaissances, maitrise parfaitement son sujet et la langue. Elle a des références, de l’expérience et n’hésite pas à nous apporter des explications ou des anecdotes supplémentaires.
Très bonne fin de journée et à bientôt,

We just wanted to write and say how much we enjoyed the tour on Saturday. We learned a lot and it was a great way to access Van Gogh and the gallery. Our guide was great – she managed the three generations very well.

Thank you and best wishes,

Dear Marianne, dear Peter, thank you very much for being there and organising an hour for us at the museum. We very very thoroughly enjoyed it. My father actually claims „that was really interesting“. My mother had to concede that Peter really knows his stuff and she learned something (that’s a first in 15 years!). And I actually enjoyed it as well a lot – very interesting and very well done. Thank you so much. I’ll recommend you for anything and to everybody!

Best wishes

Dear Marianne, We had a wonderful stay in Amsterdam! We worked many 16 hour days, so we were quite exhausted by the end, but the event went very well, and we were all very happy with the pre-forum activity of our ARTTRA tour. Your guides were both excellent!

Thank you so much. All the best to you.

Hello, we are a Group from Denmark who travelled to Amsterdam recently.
 On Sunday May 24th we visited the Van Gogh museum with one of your guides Peter and on Monday May 25th, your guide Wilma took 3 of the party on a guided bicycle tour through the city focusing on modern architecture and facades.

On both occasions we had a Unique experience, and your guides really contributed to giving us a really fantastic insight in 2 aspects of your beautiful Capital.
Both days, we wished we had set aside more time – we wanted to learn more and see more and we will give our warmest recommendations to anyone if we are in the future asked what to do in Amsterdam.

Best regards to you all – and especially to Peter and Wilma

Dear Marianne. I haven’t stopped for one day off since I saw you in your office in Amsterdam that afternoon in early October. I just completed my last tour of the fall season, and so please forgive the delay in sending you this thank you note. I am so appreciative of the quality guides that you assigned to us for the art tour in the Netherlands. Both Peter and Karla were excellent. Both are so well versed in art, and at home in the many museums throughout the Netherlands. Karla was with us for longer and in many cities, and her command of the places we visited and the art housed in the collections was really quite extraordinary. She really helped make the trip a huge success.

All of the specialized guides that you arranged for us in the various museums were excellent, and I thank you for that. It is always difficult for me, being based in the U.S, to know the quality of the guides in Europe. Your expertise and the fact that your company handles this so well is most helpful to me. I am most grateful for your expertise in this area. It all worked seamlessly.

I am sure that my assistant Kathryn is in touch with you for future groups. Thank you again, and I look forward to seeing you in beautiful Amsterdam next year.

Best wishes, Lisa

Dear Renate, “ARTTRA a su nous faire découvrir et apprécier Amsterdam, une ville magnifique. Loin des clichés et en seulement 2 petites demi-journées, accompagnés par des guides français passionnés et amoureux de cette ville, nous avons pu découvrir toutes ses belles facettes : canaux, musées, ruelles, restaurants. Bravo pour l’organisation « minutée », qui nous a laissé d’inoubliables souvenirs. Nous reviendrons !

Thank you for all Renate,
Y hasta luego.

I apologize for the slow response. I went on holiday while I was in Europe.

We were very satisfied by our entire event. We received very nice compliments from our guests for both activities – the tasting and the boat cruise. The tasting was a fun and the drinks were wonderful. Our guests repeatedly told us how delicious the food was on the boat. Everything was lovely.

If you would like, you are welcome to provide my contact name as a reference to other US companies looking to plan a similar event through your company. We were very happy with the everything.
