The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and managed time well. Even though we had seen these works before we felt we had a new understanding of them. There was enough time to enjoy the highlights and to take in the lowlights as well since the tour ended mid-afternoon. We had time to continue looking at the other exhibits.
Very knowledgeable guide. Lots of information.
The down side was only 20 minutes for lunch/coffee.
Absolutely loved this tour. Victoria was the best guide and she made the tour interesting and informative. We were able to get up very close to the paintings. Having lunch with her was even amazing.
One of the best tours I've ever been on. Our guide, Victoria, was incredible. She had so much knowledge and a passion for the art of Van Gogh and the works in the Rijksmuseum, that it set our tour way ahead of what we could've possibly appreciated on our own. Highly recommended!
Our tour guide was fantastic. She is an art historian and provided us with much background information about the artists and each work we visited. She was enthusiastic and very interesting.
We were met punctually at the designated location by our guide Paola Pirovano. She provided very interesting background information about each artist and the art forms we viewed. She was very fluent and well prepared and made the tour fun with her warm and humorous personality. We rate our experience 5 stars.
This small group, skip the line tour of both museums is the only way to go for a well informed, pleasurable experience. The guide was superb in giving even the least knowledgeable among us insights into the artists and their works.
Our tour was great. Our guide, an art student, was very knowledgeable and very helpful. We were very pleased. In one day we saw the highlights of both museums. The Rijksmuseum was much too large to see everything, so we were very pleased to have someone to direct us to the major attractions.
Our tour guide, Victoria, was terrific. We were with her for over 5 hours and learned so much. She was very informative and was a pleasure to be with. I would recommend this tour to everyone who visits Amsterdam.
Unbelievably great! Victoria was fantastic. Five hours just flew by. We learned so much My teenage daughters loved it!. So much to learn, see and experience. Victoria, our tour guide, was so knowledgeable. She loved talking about these wonderful museums and answered all our questions. Highly recommend this tour. Probably the best we've ever been on.
we had a wonderful guide she was there to greet us right on time and gave us lots of insights we would not have otherwise known about. Fascinating!
We had an extraordinary experience and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our wonderful guide was an art history major and extended herself to insure we were satisfied with our tour. I could not have asked for a more enjoyable and educational experience.
This tour was amazing and worth every penny! Victoria will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the Rijksmuseum, its architecture, and its collection of Dutch masters. She is a Vincent VanGough groupie and has amazing insight and perspective on the works on display at the Van Gough Museum. If you want to spend most of the day immersed in beautiful art complimented with intelligent commentary, then look no further than this tour.
Great guide. Just wish that Van Gogh's Potato Eaters painting had not been on loan so that we could have seen it too.

The tour guide was amazing. Victoria knew her history, gave us a lot of details, and we thoroughly enjoyed this tour.
Great guide! Fun, informative. A full day.
Our guide discussed history, the politics, the renovations...made the art come to life.
Impossible to see as much, with this much depth, on our own.
We had the best guide, Victoria...we became good friends....however, the other tour of the Anne Frank house started in a diamond factory where they were very unhappy when no one bought a diamond.....we did not have to go there and no where was it written that we would do that.....but our guide had no alternative.....and she was truly wonderful and very knowledgeable
Excellent! Great experience to see numerous artworks and have our guide provide a personlised tour. Victoria was very knowledgable and the five hours flew by with ease and all too quickly.... Would definitely recommend.
Our guide was wonderful! She provided pertinent background information that put the Dutch masterpieces in the Rijksmuseum into the context of the life and times of seventeenth century Amsterdam. Besides the paintings, she showed us other museum highlights, like the beautiful library and fantastic dollhouses.
At the Van Goth Museum, we walked past the huge line of about 200 people and right into the museum. Our guide gave us an insight into Van Goth's turmoil and explained his artistic development. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it.
Museums are both great. It's a bit of a long day, with a 40-minute break for lunch. Recommend either bringing lunch with you or asking for a bit more time in-between as the museum in the Rijksmusem is quite expensive and crowded during lunch time. Van Gogh museum was fantastic. Our tour guide was very kind, a bit hard to understand at times over the noise of the museums during the busy period. Overall, highly recommend visiting both of the museums either with a guide or taking the self-guided tour, but picking a tour that skips the long entry line.
Good walk ! Informative and Knowledgeable guide ! Great Communication skills and a good sense of humour. Kept it fun ! :
