We had only booked a semi private tour as we hadn't realised booking a normal ticket had to be done well in advance. Wow, it was definitely worth the money. Victoria our guide was amazing and so passionate about Vincent Van Gogh. She really brought the painter to life and in turn his paintings. We learnt so much and nothing was rushed. We could have asked questions but didn't need to as her information was so full and she covered everything. I would definitely recommend Viator tours as we have also had ones in Rome which again were very informative. The people who are employed to do these tours obviously love their job as they have a font of information on their particular subject. Once again, we would like to thank Victoria for a wonderful afternoon at the Van Gogh Museum!!
The "Private" tour changed to "Simi Private" once the time came for the event. It was still a great tour of the museum, the guide was excellent. I think there were six or seven in our final group. I was just by my self for this visit.
I originally bought tickets for the tour because the online tickets from the museum were sold out. I'm so glad I was "forced" to get this tour. Our guide, Victoria, was really excellent. She was informative and clearly loved describing van Gogh's work. So pleased to take this tour with Victoria.
The private, guided tour of the Van Gogh museum was awesome! The museum is great and our guide (Ilaria) was absolutely wonderful! She guided us skillfully through the museum for 2.5 hours and made sure we learned as much as possible about Van Gogh, his paintings and his life. Highly recommend this tour!
We thank Babylon Tours' chief, Tom Dolan, for assigning Victoria to our family. She is an incredible, electrifying guide- truly knowledgable and passionate about Art, especially about Van Gogh. Throughout the several hours we spent with her, pouring over most of the significant art works at the very well laid out and organized museum, she systematically brought to life the tortured soul that was Van Gogh.
Victoria made us see how much of Van Gogh's emotions, experiences and madness is reflected in his work, she also showed us works of other great painters who influenced him. Victoria had an in depth knowledge of his family, friends and acquaintances. She knew of his complex relationships with almost everyone. She also told us in detail about Van Gogh's tragic demise and the mystery surrounding it. Everytime she would bring us towards a masterpiece she would allow us my husband and I and our young daughters time to analyse it, before giving her expert opinion about it.
The Van Gogh Museum, the brain child of the late painter's nephew, is in itself a marvel- every floor one ascends takes one into one part of the artist's mind and to one stage of his life. By the time we reached the top level, we felt we were looking at everything through his tortured eyes. The Museum shop too has merchandise that is worth purchasing, catering to all age groups and budgets.
Touring the Van Gogh Museum on your own is possible, but it's a whole different experience having a spectacular guide bring the artist, his life and masterpieces alive for you.
