This was a great tour for the money. Having the guide who was very knowledgeable, as well as being able to skip the lines, was great. The Van Gogh was good, but the Rijksmuseum was wonderful. The tour doesn't give you more than a snap shot of the Rijksmuseum, but that is understandable considering the amount of art there is. The canal cruise was nice and the lunch was good too. Nice sandwiches. No cold drink which would have been welcomed on the warm day. I would do this again, but next time I'd only the tour of the Rijksmuseum.

Actually, 4 1/2 stars. The gathering point was near both our hotel and the museums so was very convenient. Our guide Tall Christina was very, very good. She negotiated through the crowds in both museums and got us to the major paintings with ease. Her knowledge of the a. Trusts and their paintings was very extensive. Both the Van Gogh and Rijks were spectacular. The Van Gogh was entirely doable on this tour, but the Rijks is too big. Must visit the Rijks again! The canal tour was OK with a decent box lunch, but did not see too much since we were talking to two fellow tourists most of the time. The canal tour longer than I expected.

I wanted to say thank You for being accommodating and flexible with us. We got to our meeting point late, but you gave us vouchers to do part of the tour on our own and then meet with the rest of the group at a later time. The tour guide was excellent very well informed and funny!

There were more than 20 on our tour, like 28, which was interesting. Both at the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum we were stopped numerous times because of the size of our group. Other than that, I have no complaint. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable, she didn't stop talking which was great, I felt like we saw and learned so much.

We had a great guide Tina who was knowledgeable, courteous, humorous and efficient. We highly recommend the skip the line process since the line ups for both museums were huge from early morning to late afternoon. The canal ride was pleasant and the lunch was good.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. She was able to paint pictures in our minds about the lives of Van Gogh and Rembrandt. We went on a Friday. The lines were out the doors. When we passed by on Saturday, the lines had tripled and were a block long. The skip the line feature was wonderful. No waiting!

Knowledgeable guide made this tour very interesting. Small groups made it easy to stay together and earphones enabled us to hear all she had to say. Relaxing canal cruise with a generous lunch was a nice break between museums.

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
