This tour got off to a rough start, as my first tour guide didn't show up, which was a Context Tour first. It was also my first experience with a private tour, which I got as a Christmas present. Ultimately, the tour was great! The weather was awful, but I still got to see parts of Amsterdam with Belina I definitely wouldn't have either seen or noticed by myself --and I was able to make suggestions about what I wanted to see, while Belina gave everything a story and a setting (trying not to use the word "context"). Since I'm now a veteran of one private tour, my comment would be to give more information about how much customization is possible. There was a church I really wanted to see and Belina worked it into the itinerary. I think everyone was feeling badly about the no-show in the morning, so my "replacement" tour went long--which I appreciated but I wasn't sure if I should have been concerned about the time. We started the tour immediately, but I would have appreciated some sort of itinerary, so I knew what to expect. Overall, since I was traveling alone, the Context Tours allowed me to meet some really interesting people and have some really interesting dialogue. That was a bonus that I didn't think too much about when I was deciding on a tour.
We learned a lot about Rembrandt's life. We had lots of questions and Eve was able to provide a lot of insights.
Lora gave us a great understanding of Rembrandt and his times. The time went really fast! She has also provided great recommendations for our next day travels that we enjoyed.
