This was the best museum...
Wjg51, Oct 2023
This was the best museum tour I ever took. Our guide, Monique, really brought Van Gogh to life. She was excellent.
Experience of a lifetime
Joseph_C, Sept 2023
The whole experience was wonderful but what made it a 5+ was our guide Romy. Her insight and knowledge gave us a perspective that we could not have learned on our own
Just the best
Suzanne_D, Sept 2023
Our guide Romy was one of the best guides we have ever had! Knowledge, professional, tuned paced. Just the best. Give her a very big raise. We have traveled extensively and she is our favorite
Our guide Anna was exceptional!
David_V, Sept 2023
Our guide Anna was excellent at managing our group of eight guests through the highlights of both museums. Anna shared several insights and the back story behind the pieces of art. Very enjoyable and informative.
Beautiful museums, bad guide
joshua_g, Sept 2023
The museums were interesting with beautiful work but our guide wasn't great. Her name was Jo and she was combative with other people in the museum. Instead of talking about the history of the art, she kept talking about her interpretation. She was dismissive of anyone who didn't agree with her. This tour was really expensive and she kind of ruined it for my wife and me.
Great tour!
Madeleine_G, Sept 2023
Great tour, learned a lot, our tour guide was very knowledgeable! Both museums were definitely worth seeing!
Great tour!!
Anita_R, Sept 2023

Victoria was a wonderful...
Nathan_B, Sept 2023
Victoria was a wonderful guide! She was extremely knowledgeable about Rembrandt and Van Gogh and kept us engaged through the entire tour. She even got excited when we asked questions about other exhibits in the museum! It's quite a long tour but absolutely worth it if you want the highlights of the museums.
Take this tour! The best way to see both museums.
Helen_S, Aug 2023
This was the most amazing tour of both museums! Our tour guide Monique was beyond amazing! I visited with my 2 teenage children and Monique kept them both interested and engaged. We all saw and learnt a lot at both museums that we would not have managed visiting alone. Thank you Monique! Highly recommend!
What a fantastic way to...
Cyndi_M, Aug 2023
What a fantastic way to spend the day!!! We had one day to see both museums. I have little to no experience in art-so the vast knowledge our tour guide had was so educational and entertaining. I would recommend this tour to anyone-
Great tour!
Steven_M, Aug 2023

Great tour with plenty of history and culture
John_S, July 2023
A must do tour for anyone that enjoys history, art and culture - our tour guide Monique was awesome providing a great tour of both museums helping us to learn so much about this great art work and all of the history of the famous artists. Doing a tour like this helps you to keep engaged with everything around you and really appreciate the art work and artists.
Awesome Tour
Benjamin_B, July 2023
What a wonderful tour. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and patient. I would recommend this to everyone.
Art Day
Elaine_P, July 2023
We were looking forward to the two museums. The guide made the tour excellent. We were on our feet most of time, and she kept asking if we were doing ok. She was kind, friendly, and knowledgeable.
Excellent way to see the Dutch Masters
Robert_G, July 2023
This tour was just as advertised -- very thorough walk through both museums, close-up views of the work of the Dutch Masters, and an incredibly rich experience. Due to the crowded nature of a popular museum on a Sunday, it was hard to hear our guide at times, even in our small group of 8. But she was certainly very knowledgable and answered all our questions.
Truly a wonderful experience
Punita_G, June 2023
We loved our tour guide Victoria. She gave us some wonderful insights to the life of Rembrandt and Van Gogh and explained many details about the various paintings and the timeline for each artist.
What a fabulous day
Georgette_D, May 2023
A truly knowledgeable guide with the ability to add a touch of humour and make the time so inclusive
Best tour to see Amsterdam's museums
Inessa_W, May 2023
Our tour guide Jacopo was amazing , an art major who presented the best art pieces to us in a very professional way. Museums were crowded but he managed to navigate our small group through the crowds and secure a spot for us . I would highly recommend to book this tour ! Request Jacopo as your guide! 😀 Inessa Weintraub from California.
Judy_S, May 2023
our guide Monique was awesome, professional and loved all her tidbits of history . Don't do both museums on same day Makes for a very long day. Better to do on different days. Both museums are absolutely worth it
Great way to visit Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum
Donald_S, Apr 2023
Frank was a wonderful guide: very informative and able to pace things well. It was a long day with the two museums, but he kept my interest throughout. Thank you very much!!
