Exquisite Van Gogh Tour Provided By Anna
Frank_S, Aug 2022
Anna provided the most thoughtful tour of the Van Gogh museum. Anna reached out personally to connect in advance . Anna put her own passion rich with study of Van Gogh into the presentation. Anna arrived dressed as she would appear in a Van Gogh painting rich with yellow, blue and green details. Anna knew intimate details about Van Gogh’s life and presented his work in the most favorable manner. Anna made sure we were comfortable. The tour focused in on what could be seen in an efficient manner but it seemed as though nothing was missed. The length of the tour stay ran over and suggestions for additional ways to enjoy Van Gogh further were provided by Anna who put her heart and soul into the tour. Anna’s Tour was chock full of admiration for Van Gogh.

Museum day in Amsterdam
Steven_N, Aug 2022
A museum day with Anna, we started at the Rijksmuseaum for a tour of the Dutch masters. And then spent the afternoon looking at Van Gogh's works of the 200 art works retained by the family from after his death. Anna told us about the stories behind the paintings. She was knowledgeable and entertaining.
A must do!
Michael_R, Aug 2022
Ricardo was fantastic, knowledgeable, and a fun person! It was a perfect balance & mix of things to make this time far more interesting than looking at the pictures and missing the stories to go with.
Great Tour
Carolyn_A, Jul 2022
Anna, our guide, was very knowledgeable, interesting, and thorough, as she shared Van Gogh’s personal and professional life.
Too long before first painting
James_W, Jul 2022
We spent the first hour and a half getting to know others in group, in-line with others “skipping the line” and too much history. Saw first painting at the hour and a half mark. At that pace we were not going to see the rest in an hour. We left the tour to complete on our own.

Excellent and Informative Van Gogh Museum Tour

This was an excellent and incredibly informative tour with Anita. She was very knowledgeable, warm, and engaging, especially with our tween and teen. Highly recommend this tour for a more in-depth education on Van Gogh’s life and progression as an artist.

Fabulous tour
Young_L, Jul 2022
Excellent tour for a family. We are a family of 5 from NJ. We really had a great time with this tour. We now have a better understanding on Van Gogh’s life and his paintings. Loved it!
Victoria was a tremendous guide.
Chris_H, Jul 2022
Victoria was very knowledgeable and obviously very passionate about the museum, the history of the artist, and his family. The tour lasted a bit longer than it was supposed to because of her willingness to discuss and describe. I know nothing about art, but I enjoy Van Gogh, and Victoria made the tour especially enjoyable.
Lovely tour
