Tour Description

Discover more about this tour

Holland’s version of the Louvre is essential when visiting Amsterdam, and this private tour will introduce visitors to the seemingly endless collection that curates Dutch history over the centuries. This 2 to 2.5 hour private guided tour of the Rijksmuseum will pair you with a dashing young guide who will lead you through the museum. Your guide will provide tickets that are valid the whole day so that you can return at your leisure.


For those who aren’t familiar with Dutch culture – and who is really? – we will explore its rich and vibrant past through a selection of works from among the 8000 objects on display. We’ll 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.

Highlights Include: (if artwork is not on loan or being restored etc.)

Rembrandt masterworks

The Nightwatch

The Jewish Bride

The Syndics of the Drapers’ Guild

Vermeer’s The Milkmaid

19th century library

17th century dollhouses, globes, ship replica, and Delft ceramics

    What an incredible museum! I would definitely do it with a tour guide! Victoria was terrific and passionate about the art work. She was able to give us art history lessons as we enjoyed the museum.

    The tour of the Rijks, as Audrey gave us, was an exciting glimpse into the Golden Age of the Dutch in the 17th century. She started the tour in the Middle Ages and skillfully illustrated the transformation from a poor and backward country to a focused and efficient one. The Low Countries achieved power and outreach totally unrelated to its size. Amazing! Rembrandt's and Vermeer's paintings were a highlight. Audrey has gifted us with a memorable impression of the mighty Dutch, I definitely recommend her tour.

    We entirely enjoyed the complete tour experience. Our guide was excellent. Her ability to describe the art and place it in historical context was just what we were looking for.

    Victoria was a perfect docent for our mixed group. My kids were less than excited by the art history. So she peppered our tour with interesting history notes and the weapons display. I got my art upgrade and everyone was happy. That and #39;s no small feat!
