The highlight of our 3 day visit to Amsterdam. We booked the 21 Dec tour which happened to be a Sunday. The tour guide was very knowledgable about art and the artists in general. The vivid description of the artists' background and their every day lives helped to put colour and perspective while we strolled along the two museums. Managed to view most of the renowned paintings and the cruise and lunch were a welcome break. The guide was very helpful and always glad to answer our questions..she even allowed extra time to explain other interesting items on show.
Excellent tour from beginning to end. We had only two days to spend in Amsterdam and wanted to see as much of the city as possible. The Skip the Line tour provided us with the opportunity to visit Amsterdam's two main museums plus a scenic cruise of the city's canals. The tour guide was excellent-personable, knowledgeable, patient and had a true love for art and her city. You will not be disappointed in this tour, it's first class. Bruce C from Ontario
Great experience made much better by having a very knowledgable guide. Lovely light lunch on the boat, just right and altogether a great tour.
Excellent tour guide! Marianne was entertaining and very informative.
This was an excellent tour. Everything it said it would be. The guide was outstanding--giving enough info without getting bogged down. I had to be in a wheelchair for the day and she was professional and guided us quickly to elevators. She knew her stuff. Gave a great recommendation for dinner.
We absolutely loved everything about this tour! Especially our guide, tall pretty blonde...first initial T? Rats can't recall, but she was amazing...so knowledgeable with a fabulous sense of humor. The skip the line feature was terrific as was the lunch cruise through the canals. I only wish we were in Amsterdam longer, I would tour with Viatour all the time and can't wait to go abroad again and load up!
Extremely pleased with our group of nine people! Very nice group and perfectly small!
Thank you for a fantastic day in Amsterdam.
I like to take a local guide and again we were right! She was amazing: in Van Gogh Museum she guided us trough all most important paintings, she gave us perfect overview regarding his work and his life. In Rijksmuseum again we saw in short time the most important and powerful things with very professional and funny guide!
Excellent Tour. Guide was very knowlegable and a very interesting person to spend the day with. Her social skills and English were exceptional. Time managment was excellent with the right amount of time at both museums and the lunch canal cruise. The two museums are very different but equally excellent. The pick up point was clearly designated. Throughly recommend this tour and special thanks to our guide
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.
