COVID19 Rescheduling Policy: Book With Confidence! No Penalty For Rescheduling As Many Times As Necessary
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? We’ll introduce you to the man behind the famous sunflowers and self-portraits on this intimate, small group tour. 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.
Then after a break for lunch, we’ll keep it as dignified and serious as possible as we discuss the legal drug vendors, the leather neighborhood, and the smoky “coffee shops” that attract people from around the world. Cast away your guilt and judgement, and let’s discuss the etiquette and laws that will allow you to appreciate this district to its fullest after the tour. Our professional guides will lead you through the salacious streets and coffee shops of the Red Light District, following in the footsteps of Van Gogh himself.

While the small group tour is expensive, Angelo made it well more than worthwhile. His base of knowledge in the art field was outstanding! He overextended himself by providing a great amount of background information, supported by extensive pictures on his iPad, about various artists and their individual works. He easily handled questions from several guests who had a great deal of knowledge about various art ages. artists and there relation with each other. We highly recomend this tour. Be prepared to be overwhelmed.
My tour guide was very well educated in art and taught our group more than we had bargained for. She was also very personable, friendly and flexible with interests. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone with even the slightest interest in the arts. Particularly Vincent Van Gogh.
Thanks to Henk our guide! he was very detailed and informative in his guidance . I was solo to see this museum, as I was the only one interested to take the tour of Van Gogh ! and it was a smart thing to hire services from Babylon CITY tours!
I have been on many tours and thought that this was one of the best. Salena was very knowledgable, personal and interesting. Had a really great time.
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!
