COVID19 Rescheduling Policy: Book With Confidence! No Penalty For Rescheduling As Many Times As Necessary
The tour will begin with a walk through Spiegelquarter, a district known for a wide array of antiques and artistic goods. Afterwards, wander the Keizersgracht, or Emperor’s canal, where you’ll discuss one of Rembrandt’s most successful apprentices. In Rembrandt Square you’ll hear about the Night Watch Guards, who were characters in one of the artist’s most popular works. His painting is recreated here in bronze sculpture. In Staalstraat, learn about the local Drapers Guild, represented by Rembrandt. Finally, in Waterloo Square, you will discover the former Jewish Quarter, home to a variety of immigrants including Rembrandt and his wife. The couple spent many years living here, near the Amstel River, where their house still stands as a museum dedicated to the artist’s life. It includes etchings and other works done by Rembrandt himself. The furnishings are authentic to the 1600s, reconstituted thanks to auction archives from the period. Wander Rembrandt’s office and see how he produced his work, peeking at the more intimate side of the artist’s life.
Complete confusion on the information about the meeting point between Expedia and Withlocals. Expedia indicated the Tuschinski theatre while our guide showed up at the Cobra Cafe. As a result, we had to take the tour on our own without the benefit of the local guide.
I would recommend this tour to anyone that will listen. Our guide was knowledgeable, passionate about her job, and very informative. We really enjoyed our visit and learned so much more than we ever have could on our own
The guides were very experienced and helpful. They went out of their way ensuring that we had a good time. Amsterdam's wind chill was quite cold during our time there, yet the experience was worth it. The tour was very punctual, which was very professional as well.
Marco was our tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about Van Gogh, Rembrandt and the history surrounding their lives. I hated to see the time end!
Our guide Tea was highly knowledgable, enthusiastic and responsive. Her sophisticated understanding and well planned exploration of key works allowed us to really appreciate what we were seeing. The way she organized her approach allowed us to build on this understanding as we later explored on our own. Seeing the paintings this way truly maximized our time at the museum. Money very well spent.
