I would recommend this tour to all of my friends. The tour guide we had was excellent.
This is an excellent way to see two museums in one day. Our tour guide had a microphone, and we had radio ear pieces. She was extremely knowledgeable about both Van Gogh and the artists housed in the Rijksmuseum. The lunch cruise was a valuable break between museums. I had the wonderful fortune of learning so much more about Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Vermeer, etc than I have ever learned on one tour.
Bravo...this is a real winner. Our guide's name was Evelyn. After the Rijksmuseum, we stopped in the lovely café for a cheese plate and a few glasses of wine. The perfect day. RDP
Excellent guide. Personable, knowledgeable. Was very good time allotment for each segment and the box lunch on the canal tour was quite tasty and sufficient.
Our guide, Christina, was fantastic. We could not have had a better guide. Her knowledge of art was wonderful and we were fortunate to have her and her great personality. She was a joy to be with. It also helped that we were a small group, but the size could not dimish her patience and caring for us. Thank you so much!!!
Our guide was (or is) a teacher and her descriptions and organization allowed us to see the highlights and recognize the importance of some lesser familiar works. She was placed in the awkward position of conducting the tour in Spanish and English which she did quite skillfully. (I understood another Spanish speaking guide was unexpectedly unavailable.) I did not let the dual language tour upset me and took a little extra time to see the art we would have passed by quickly in a single language tour.
The tour guide was excellent. She was very thoughtful and had a great style as she discussed all of the art and history surrounding Van Gogh and the Rijksmuseum. It is a MUST day when in Amsterdam, a high light of our short trip to Amsterdam.
Very proffecional and great time saving skipping the lines. All we expected and more.
We enjoyed this tour very much. It was a great way to spend a day in Amsterdam. Our guide was very knowledgeable about both museums. Even though this was her first time to guide a tour through the Van Gogh Museum she was very familiar with the artist and had done her homework on the exhibits. The Rijksmuseum is very large and would take a long time to see it all, probably too much for one trip to the museum. Our guide took us through the 1600's exhibit floor and was very informed on that period. The mid-day canal cruise was a nice break to give the feet a rest in between the two museum tours. It was a great way to see the highlights of the old downtown Amsterdam area. The included box lunch was very good. Money well spent, and no line-ups!
The group was quite small and a lovely mixture of people. Our tour guide was very informative, helpful, and interesting. A complete star! We all learnt so much! We had a fun day, but it was exteremely full and comprehensive.
