If you or your traveling partner do not have the patience to spend hours in a museum this tour is for you. We were able to see all the museum highlights with our knowledgeable guide Steven, enjoy a very nice lunch at the Van Gogh Museum and take a relaxing canal cruise all in one day. The best part was that there were no lines. We took this tour in August, at the height of the tourist season, and the lines to get into the museums were more than 2 hours. You can always go back on your own if you want to see more. This tour was well worth the cost. I would highly recommend this tour.
Our guide, Pieter, was wonderful, and this was the best day of my entire trip. He knows so much about art! After spending time listening to him talking about the magic in the paintings, I got it and wanted to climb inside them and live there. Pieter is smart, knowledgeable, interesting, and kind. Everything went like clockwork and the group was fantastic. So many awesome people from all over the world! I loved this and highly recommend this tour, especially if Pieter is your guide. A great price for a well-planned, well-executed, informative, and fun tour.
Tour was one of our trip's highlights. Pieter our guide was fabulous. Knowledgeable and entertaining at the same time. Really made it fun. Canal cruise was a nice bonus.
Pieter did an outstanding job of providing commentary on the museum tours. He has a deep understanding of painting and provided much insight and interpretation. Pieter also provided the relevant historical perspective. He was very willing to answer questions and to cater to individual needs. An excellent choice if you have only one full day to spend in Amsterdam. The inclusion of the canal tour and lunch between the two museum tours provided the necessary change of pace in such a full day of activities. This tour was well worth the price.
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.
