I was amazed how much we saw in one day. We could never have done it on our own, yet it wasn't rushed, . Tina was a fantastic guide- enthusiastic, knowledgeable and entertaining. .
Our guide was great!!! He really knew the history of Amsterdam and all of the museums and the contents. The price for the experience was a little bit pricey, but overall it was worth it to skip the line and literally save hours on line.
Our tour guide Steven did an outstanding job of sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm for his city and it's art. We were able to quickly enter the museums and he was able to show us the highlights of both the Van Gogh and the Rijksmuseum. He was able to keep the group together and engaged and we were able to move right up front to get the best view of each masterpiece. The canal tour with lunch was a great break in the middle of the museum tours and the lunch was lovely and the canal cruise a delight. Great Tour!!
What a lovely day! Even if there had not been any lines, getting this tour for the guide and the canal cruise alone would have been totally worth it. Our guide Marta, an art student, was able to give us otherwise unknown insights into the paintings, the artists' lives, and the ways to read a painting. We had a wonderful time!
The very friendly and knowledgeable guide made this a great experience.
Steve was a fantastic tour guide. Our entire family from 14 to 45 totally enjoyed the day and he had our 3 boys laughing and really taking in the entire experience. I would highly recommend this tour. Great history and exposure to art. It gave us a great little mini tour on the boat so we could plan out our next days adventure and Steve was a great help in pointing things out.
Our tour guide, Steven, was very knowledgeable and informative.
Our tour director, Steve, was very knowledgable and he did a terrific job.
Our tour guide, Elsa, was wonderful - great knowledge about the two museums including the art, but also a life long resident of Amsterdam who gave us a perspective that was invaluable. She also took the time to walk us to the Canal Cruise and stood waiting with us until the boat arrived. A great day!
Canal cruise was fun. Museums were wonderful. Tour guide very knowledgeable
The guide was great and we thoroughly enjoyed his explanations at the 2 museums and found that part of the tour really worthwhile. The cruise was disappointing. The boat was crowded and the box lunch could have been better. However, the disappointing part was that if you wanted to stand on the outside deck of the boat in order to see much better, you couldn't hear the taped narration so you didn't know what you were looking at. I still highly recommend the tour because the museum part was excellent-very interesting and informative.

Very good tour guide. She was very friendly. The group bypassed the long line to the Van Gogh Museum. Definitely worth the extra cost not to waste part of my holiday standing in line.

We had a wonderful tour guide and the museums were awesome.
Outstanding guide! Two museums were fantastic and the guide maneuvered our group through all the lines to see the most important works of art without a problem. Best tour guide we have ever had!
Fantastic to skip the line. Wow, you must do this tour, our guide was great, she had fantastic knowledge. Would do again.
This was a great tour. Steve, our guide, was knowledgeable, interesting, informative and patient! The stories he told about the artwork we saw in both museums were excellent. To be in the museum and see the amazing artwork is one thing, to have Steve there telling you the story behind the painting or sculpture and providing the artists perspective and history was quite wonderful. We are so glad we took this tour. Very excellent--Thanks to Steve!! August 7, 2015

Absolutely great. Steven, our guide was really passionate about the museums we visited, and extremely helpful in answering questions and giving advice on general things to do and ways to get around in Amsterdam. We take a Viator Tour again in a heartbeat.
Excellent!! The best tour you could do. And a brilliant tour company conducting the tour. Lunch on the canal was great. The tour company, after we were caught in a dreadful storm, shouted the tour tea/coffee at the American Hotel lovely and organised buses to take us to Rijksmuseum. They did not have to do this. We were extremely impressed. The guide was brilliant, knew her stuff, and conducted the tour in the most time efficient way to get the most out of the two museums. We had a wonderful day.
Great from start to finish. Those who greeted us were friendly and very professional. The guide Yoyo was outstanding.
Great tour. Not waiting in line and the guide was great. It would be impossible to do on your own.
This trip was outstanding! The guide was the best ever! Good pacing through the museum and onto the boat for lunch. The smaller group make this a great experience.
