This was the best tour by far we have ever taken. Our guide Pieter was passionate about the art of Rembrandt and Van Gogh and shared that with our group. I wish I had an art teacher in college that made art come alive as well as he did. The Canal Cruise was great and a good break between the museums. We had lunch in the Van Gogh museum which was simple but ample and delicious. Although the Van Gogh museum only has about 35 of his works they do have Sunflowers and Potato Eaters which are two of the greatest. this is not to be missed and gives very high value for the price.
The tour was conducted by an art historian who was very knowledgable! He was able to maximise our time yet do so with depth that greatly enhanced our experience! We would highly recommend this tour. Well organised and on schedule!
Tour guide very knowledgeable, take this tour only if you love art....cause this is what this all about...
Our guide was amazing and provided so much insight at both museums. She was extremely knowledgeable but also provided very accessible commentary. It was a wonderful way to make the most of our time and be sure to see all the highlights. We especially enjoyed her chronological approach to the Van Gogh museum. We would highly recommend this tour!
When in Amsterdam, never miss these two places. It's all about history and art and more art, great souvenirs at the end of the museum tour. The canal cruise provided a fantastic way to see and feel the life around the canals....pretty and posh boat houses, al-fresco dining, locals and tourist alike in a restful mood near the water, and bridges just about everywhere. Totally cool to see a beautiful old town from a different angle and view. Would love to return and see more.
This was a great tour of both museums, and our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. Also, a very nice lunch at the Van Gogh museum. I would recommend this experience to anyone with a limited time to see Amsterdam's cultural sites. Thank you!
We had the best tour guide. So knowledgeable and pleasant. Will definitely recommend to others who visit Amsterdam. Lunch was good, better than expected.
This was the most incredible tour - the guide was passionate and knowledgeable. We felt like we were on a field trip w/a college professor who clearly loved his job.
Museums were fabulous. Canal tour was scenic and relaxing. Lunch at the Van Gogh museum was great. Pieter was an excellent guide...very knowledgeable and especially passionate about Vincent. Was a great day!!
My guide was so knowledgeable and so willing to answer any questions I had. She was fun to be with for the entire day.
This was a very fun tour! One of the best things was that our guide had a very good audio system and she was easy to understand. Often on these types of tours the guide is almost impossible to hear and/or understand. The museums were spectacular and the canal cruise was beautiful. Nice job!
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour with our guide Pieter. He was extremely knowledgeable about all the art
we were viewing and answered questions well. He had a great sense of humour ! He kept the tour moving and didn't get bogged down in either museum. He made the whole day very pleasurable ! Ask for Pieter if you are going on this tour - you will also enjoy your tour as much as we did. Thanks Pieter for increasing our knowledge of art and the artists.

The art was amazing! The tour guide, Eric was wonderful. Knowledgeable, funny and full of information. Loved him! Have used Viator before in other countries. Would highly recommend.
Great tour to learn about and enjoy masterful works of art and the history of famous painters. Our guide was charming and amazingly informative.
What a fabulas day. If you want to pack a lot in in one day then this tour is great. It is fast paced but well organised and very informative. Our very professional guide for the day was Pieter from Keytours Excursions office at Museum Square. We were each given headphones so we could hear him from a distance. We kick started the day at the Rijksmuseum which had a fabulous collection of the old masters such as Frans Hals, Vermeer and of course Rembrandt and many more. It was fantastic to hear all about the challenges of Rembrandts life and how he made it from riches to poor and to hear the details about the individual paintings. Next was the canal trip was also great which gave us detailed information on the different areas within the canals. Aboard the cruise Pieter served us coffee/tea and also offered to take our photo. Following that which took about an hour we made our way to have lunch at the Van Gogh museum. The table was reserved for us and the service and staff there were very friendly too. After a nice lunch we returned to our group and set off on the fantastic tour of the Van Gogh museum. Pieter again was so knowledgeable about all the facts about the paintings and Van Goghs life which was amazing to hear. Even some people who were not on the tour were trying to elbow in beside our group to listen to him. Overall the whole day was a well organised and very informative. With a special thanks to Pieter who made the day, my niece and I enjoyed the day immensely.
Our guide Tininkie ? was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She was assisted by Pieter who went out of his way to help us with local transport. Nothing was too much trouble for either of them. Touring the museum was informative and fascinating and being up close and personal to works by Rembrandt and van Gogh a real honour and privilege. The canal cruise and lunch at the van Gogh Museum was most enjoyable and bathed in sunlight the cherry on top! The museum staff were equally helpful and friendly so we say a huge thank you for making this such a superb experience.
Great tour but tour agency did not have a record of our purchase from viator! They let us take the tour anyways.
The tour guide was great and very knowledgeable. Guided us to important pieces of art, gave a wonderful narrative and moved us on to next area. had we been on our own, we would've taken much longer and not seen the all of the critical pieces of art. Kept us on schedule for art viewing, canal tour, and lunch. Well done!!
