To begin this tour we’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. Our guides will share their favorite stories about the museum’s most prominent and even quirkiest pieces. 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.
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 we’ll introduce you to the man behind the famous sunflowers and self-portraits on this private 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.” We will 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, we’ll discuss that whole ear incident.

Excellent day seeing wonderful sites in Buenos Aires. John is a very informative guide and pleasant to spend time with.
The Guided Tour of the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum was exceptional. Our guide Tia was very knowledgeable and gave us a deep understanding of the history, context and meaning of all the paintings we viewed. We can highly recommend this tour.
Excellent experience with Victoria, our guide. Made visit interesting as well as educational.
As is true of many wonderful museums, there is so much to see it is difficult to focus. Our guide for our family of 5 adults was Victoria. She was both a masterful story teller about the lives of Van Gogh and Rembrandt and an expert in defining their styles of painting and comparing them to other painters of their time. We did not see EVERY painting but rather a series that depicted the growth and the challenges these artists had in their creative, often challenging lives. You would want this experience for this tour! This was a 4-5 hour tour and we were intrigued the entire time.
