We had a wonderful private tour of the Van Gogh museum from Drs Kees Kaldenbach - he has written a book about Van Gogh and offers insightful observations throughout along with putting Van Goghs life and experiences in context. The weave of knowledge and speculation allow even light-art folk like ourselves to engage with the material and gain a deep understanding in an effortless 2 hour stroll.

We moved directly to the front of the line and were first into the museum and had unfettered access as we strolled almost alone discussing the works. Kees is delightful and customizes his approach to the audience, at once answering the most banal and basic and the more ambiguous and complex with the same interest and concern. His upper end of knowledge was certainly untested by us, however his depth and breadth of knowledge and his friendly demeanor made us feel like experts by the end of the tour! My highest recommendation!

This was a highlight of our trip. We got to see all of the best paintings before the crowds poured and then had time to go back at our leisure and do the studio tour. A great museum and a great tour.

We have been in the museum with this tour guide Kees and I would highly recommend to spend the time in the museum with him. His explanations were really interesting and he showed us other point of views on the work and life of Vincent Van Gogh. It was a great time with him...

And if you are already in Amsterdam dont forget to go with Kees to Rijksmuseum - that was brilliant too

IMO, this is the ONLY way to see the Van Gogh museum. Kees the guide speaks perfect English and his expertise is both engaging and comprehensive. I learned so much more than I expected and it was fascinating. He combines all aspect of Van Gogh's craft -- his personal history, his family, his artistic influences, the development of his skill as an artist, the time in which he lived, etc. I HIGHLY recommend this tour. It costs more than the group tours, but there is absolutely no comparison!
