What to expect

Museum enthusiasts, listen up! This 5.5 hour small group or private tour includes two of Amsterdam’s most popular museums and is an ideal way to experience them both during a day of art and culture. Your charming guide will provide tickets for you to enter both the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum in a group of no more than 8 guests or enjoy the museums in a private group of only your friends and family.

To begin this tour you’ll explore the Rijksmuseum to indulge in some of Holland’s most celebrated artists, like Rembrandt, while learning about the country’s rich history through a collection of 8000 works. Your guide will share their favorite stories about the museum’s most prominent and even quirkiest pieces. Discuss familiar names like Rembrandt as well as lesser known items like 17th century dollhouses. Understand the meaning behind Vermeer’s “The Milkmaid” and marvel at the expansive 19th century library. At the end of the tour, you’ll have a good overview of the museum’s collection and you may even know how to pronounce its name correctly.

You’ve probably heard about one of the world’s most famous painters, Vincent Van Gogh. But what do you actually know about this Dutch artist? After a break for lunch you'll be introduced to the man behind the famous sunflowers and self-portraits on this intimate tour of the Van Gogh Museum. Learn about him through his iconic paintings of people eating potatoes and of his own bedroom, or maybe his “Wheat field with Crows” or “Yellow House.” Visit the world’s largest collection of Van Gogh’s works to learn about his turbulent life stretching from his days in Holland to his dramatic ending in France. And yes, don’t worry, you’ll discuss that whole ear incident.
