Rob: We returned home last night, and wanted to take a moment to sincerely thank you for providing a great tour for the six of us prior to boarding the ship for our cruise. It was obvious to all of us even before we began the tour how much you know about Amsterdam and the Jewish aspect of the history. It is a shame that timing prevented us from spending more time with you. Also, it was a really nice touch that you came to say goodbye to us as we left the ship and departed to the airport. I am sure that the six of us will have the opportunity to recommend you and Elly to friends in the future. We wish you the best in continuing you career in guiding tourist and you other studies, and hope that we will be able to cross-paths in the future.
