Tour Description

Discover more about this tour

Retrace Rembrandt’s steps as you explore the district where the artist once lived. On this 2.5-hour private guided tour, your guide will lead you to explore Amsterdam’s streets, visiting the sights and places that inspired some of Rembrandt’s iconic paintings, before having a guided visit of his house with skip the line access.

 

Begin by following your guide through the Spiegelquarter, the traditional district for all things art and antiques. You’ll then walk onwards towards the Keizersgracht, or Emperor’s canal, to learn about one of Rembrandt’s best-known apprentices. In Rembrandt Square, discover the Night Watch Guards – one of the artist’s most famous works – which is recreated in bronze sculpture. Further on in the Staalstraat, hear about the local Drapers Guild, immortalized by Rembrandt, before learning about the old Jewish quarter around Waterloo Square. Rembrandt and his wife Saskia lived here, near the Amstel River, and you will visit the artist’s house, now a museum celebrating his contributions to Dutch art. The museum features the original house with a meticulous collection of 17th century period pieces, reconstructed thanks to historical auction records. Wander the etchings, artefacts, and rooms as Rembrandt himself once did. His small office and other personal items offer a glimpse into the life of this artistic genius.

    Very much enjoyed the museum and the private tour. We lucked out and it was only us on the tour. Had a great time with Victoria and got more from the museum than we would have on our own

    We had afantastic time with our guide, Victoria. She was extremely knowledgable and made the museum items really come to live. If you have only a few hours available and want tobknow more than just the average, this tour is a must!

    A good guide can turn any museum experience from a "ho hum" day into a wonderful, educational, stimulating memory. Cera made that special memory for us today

    The young woman who was are tour guide was well versed in her subject, interesting, easy to understand and as pleasant as she could be. She was also completely prepared with back up materials on her notepad and other materials to enhance the experience. One of the best tours of an art museum we have ever taken.

    Victoria (the tour guide) was wonderful. Knowledgeable, charming, thoughtful, filled with fascinating tips and tidbits of information. It was like a crash course in Rembrandt and Vermeer. A great experience.

    The art was great...the museum amazing...our guide Paola just wonderful! I think my wife and I will remember meeting Paola as much as the art. Her knowledge of the museum and its exhibitions was unbeatable. Our two hour tour just flew by. We can't thank her enough for being such a fabulous host. Book the tour, you won't regret a single second :)

    Our guide was an art history major. She gave very intimate descriptions of the motivation and background of the artist as well as the influence each painter had on the work of others and vice versa. There was a focus to her guided tour that I found helpful to keep the stories and the art and artists in my mind as a picture map. Well worth the money.

    Viki; our tour guide was legendary. We were in constant awe of her knowledge of the art as well as the museum itself. Request Viki if you are planning a Babylon tour. PS- she also gave us incredible recommendations for nightlife and restaurants. Live Jazz and exciting venues.
