This was a wonderful tour! I had been to the Van Gogh museum twice before and had done their audio/headphone tour, but this personalized tour from an art historian added so much more insight and meaning! I had not been to the Rijksmuseum tour, and it was wonderful, too. It's great when you can get relatable insight no matter what level you go in with. The guide was superb!

I am terribly late at posting this review, but I have to say that I still talk about it and recommend it highly. We had the best guide who brought new understanding to the Van Gogh paintings and the art in the Reiksmuseum. It was a long tour and tiring but the canal boat ride and lunch made a wonderful break and was also entertaining. The guides suggestions and assistance in finding the right tram back to our hotel was greatly appreciated. Sometimes visiting museums in a foreign country can be confusing and so crowded with lines and such. Viator tour got us directly into museum, coat room and restrooms with no lines or confusion. We could never have seen and learned about these wonderful collections so thoroughly in one day without Viator.

Amazing experience! Magnificent tour package! We visited two must-see museums and more, with an educated, passionate tour guide. He was informative and humorous, and added a personal touch to our tour, which made it even more delightful. Well worth the price. Highly recommend.

This was such an amazing tour! Pieter was our wonderful guide. He was full of information on not only the artists, but also on Amsterdam in general. Pieter oozed passion for The Netherlands and all of its glory! I would highly recommend this tour to everyone!
Being able to see the art at the Van Gogh and Rijks Museums up close while listening to someone who is passionate about the art is a wonderful experience. The canal cruise was a good way to break up the day and to see Amsterdam from another angle.

This was awesome. Definitley worth the money, well orgainised and informative and also we got right upfront and close to everything. The guide is excellent. There were a few nodding heads during the canal cruise, but you have to do it right - you are in Amsterdam and water has that effect on people.

We were more than satisfied with this tour. Steve, our tour guide, was so knowledgeable and professional and knew all the tricks to afford us the opportunity to see as much as we could during the tours of the museums. His knowledge of the art and presentation was fabulous. He pointed out and explained things we would have never looked for or seen on our own. He also knew the layout of the museums which helped to maximize that which we were able to see. You would be remiss if you got to Amsterdam and did not take this tour. We took this tour with Steve on October 28, 2017.

The Vab Gogh is a must. Poor soul. But thank you for leaving us this beauty.

The cruise was great! Ouch, not so much.

The Rijksmuseum is stunning. A treasure. An opportunity to see a culture evolve into a power house. Wow.

Lunch was so so.

The cruise was great.

We had a great day. Everything was so well organised. The museum visits were spaced with a lovely lunch and canal cruise between visits. Our guide Peter was brilliant and made the experience worthwhile-animated, funny and so knowledgeable. Would definitely take another Viator tour.

Steven Attersol was a superb tour guide: knowledgeable, enthusiastic, charming, and committed. He shared many stories behind the masterpieces, giving so much depth to the educational experience. This tour had the optimum blend of museums, a traditional Dutch lunch, a canal tour, and a guided tour of neighborhood landmarks. Steve's contributions were worth half the tour experience. If Steve becomes your tour guide, consider yourself most fortunate.

Museums were amazing, and guide was excellent!! I'm generally not interested in the old masters but the guide made the visit very informative and interesting. The canal cruise was a nice break between the two museum visits.

Highly recommend it.

Fantastic tour. The Van Gogh Museum was the highlight for me although I was a bit bummed that photos were not allowed there. Photos were allowed in the Rijksmuseum. Lunch at the Rijksmuseum had the tour group sitting at shared tables giving us time to get to know one another.

A wonderful day to to see two great museums and see the city of Amsterdam. While it is somewhat a long day the tour is broken up with the morning in the Rijksmuseum, followed by lunch, a canal tour and finishing with Van Gogh. Our guide Steve was passionate and engaging. The tour moved efficiently through the museums pointing out the significance selected art and techniques, as well as the societal and cultural context at the time. In some ways the tour is as much a history and cultural lesson as as it is a museum tour.

In the end, the tour is well paced and one leaves it with a much greater appreciation for the art, the artists and country itself. If you are going to do the tour I would suggest doing it early in your visit as it will help you gain a greater appreciation for the city of Amsterdam.
