Worth every penny! Pieter was an incredible guide for information, subject matter, passion about his city, knowledge about the art and artists, and entertaining as well. We gathered at the 'Tours and Tickets' signs you see around the city. Follow the voucher directions - easy to find starting point. Started the day buy leaving backpack at the desk at the meeting point. Security measures will make taking bags into museums difficult, so we opted to lighten the load and follow his suggestion. They provide a whisper phone earpiece so you can hear the guide in the museum setting without being too close to others. We learned about the history of the Rijksmuseum, the architecture, the plaza, and some of the politics of allowing bicycles to pass through. All very, very interesting. The art highlights in both musuems were just right, especially as a first time visitor. You couldn't see everything, so having Pieter made our visit efficient and purposeful. His storytelling is dynamic and so very interesting, His passion comes through and added value to the tour. The walk to the boat ride is brief. It was an interesting cruise through the canals. You listen to a prerecorded tour guide, and Pieter serves a little snack and drink. It was a nice break sitting and viewing the city. The lunch was fresh and delicious in the Van Gogh museum. We had a community table all set for our group as we arrived from our walk back from the boat cruise. Not rushed at all, pacing was pleasant. I would highly recommend this tour and the high cost does have value. We learned a great deal and were so happy with our experience, it was one of the tours we talked most about when we returned home.
Our tour guide was wonderful. Extremely well informed and with a wonderful sense of humor.
Tour was outstanding our guide Pieter was extremely knowledgeable, accessible, and entertaining the amount of time and each of the museums was about right and we saw and learned about the most important artworks would not of changed a thing we will use your services on future trips
It was very enjoyable for our whole family. Our tour guide kept it moving and she was very flexible in the crowded galleries. We appreciated her knowledge and her sense of humor.
THE Amsterdam Skip the Line Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum tour including Amserdam Cruise was excellent. Our guide unfortunately can't remember her name was ver personable and had a passion for the art in the museums. The cruise was a perfect break between museums. Would recommend this tour highly.
Excellent day . Tour guide Peter was excellent , certainly knew all there is to know about Van Gogh.
Trina was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. While it was a long day, it went quickly and had perfectly timed rest stops. Trinka not Trina.

This tour was fantastic! Pieter was our guide and he was extremely knowledgable, personable and funny. We learned so much about art history on this tour. It was just perfect for our group of 6 active American women in our 50s. The Canal tour part is a nice way to have a seat for a short respite. The lunch from the cafe in the Van Gogh museum is ok, but you're there for the art. Your lucky if you get Pieter as your guide!
The guide, Pieter, was fabulous. He truly had a passion for his subject. We thoroughly enjoyed his narrative. Great experience!!
Had a great tour with Pieter, who took us through the Rijksmuseum and made it seem manageable in size, and then took us through the Van Gogh museum with a very well-done narrative about Vincent Van Gogh's life. Would recommend definitely!
Our guide Pieter was wonderful and very informative...a wonderful day.
Pieter was an excellent tour guide - top notch - very professional and really knows in depth information, Perfect tour for one day. Saw it all!
Great tour!!! Guide was an art major. She was very knowledgeable! It was a 7 hour tour that was perfect. Rijksmuseum 1st, then canal ride, lunch and Van Gogh last. Our 9 year old grandson loved it! Until the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower a week later on our final day, the Rijksmuseum seeing Nights Watch was his favorite part of Amsterdam, Antwerp, Brugge and Paris. A definite must went in Amsterdam!
We really enjoyed this tour! Our guide was fantastic--so knowledgeable and clearly loving her job. She did an excellent job of leading our multilingual group and her excitement about the artworks and the architecture of the museums and city really enhanced our experience. Though it was a long day with a full schedule, we were left wanting more! We will definitely be back for more tours in Amsterdam.

An efficient way to pack these three attractions into one day. Our guide Pieter had a delightful sense of humor and kept a quick pace through the day.
This trip was outstanding. The guide was so knowledgeable, passionate and just a wonderful personality...would strongly recommend the tour.
It was a great tour. It condensed the museums and boat ride into just the one day that I was in Amsterdam. No museum lines and wasted time! Lunch in the Van Gogh museum was just enough. Our guide Pieter was very knowledgable and informative. A good guide!! Zoe Treaster, California
