This recently renovated museum has a magnificent collection of artwork, crafts and historical pieces dating back from the year 1200 to today.

  • The tour guide was very informative, so much so that we were rushed at the end because the museum was closing.

  • This was such an amazing tour! Pieter was our wonderful guide. He was full of information on not only the artists, but also on Amsterdam in general. Pieter oozed passion for The Netherlands and all of its glory! I would highly recommend this tour to everyone!
    Being able to see the art at the Van Gogh and Rijks Museums up close while listening to someone who is passionate about the art is a wonderful experience. The canal cruise was a good way to break up the day and to see Amsterdam from another angle.

  • Pieter was a great guide and he presented an excellent tour!

  • Our female guide has a degree in Art History and couldn't have been a better person to go to the museums with

  • This was awesome. Definitley worth the money, well orgainised and informative and also we got right upfront and close to everything. The guide is excellent. There were a few nodding heads during the canal cruise, but you have to do it right - you are in Amsterdam and water has that effect on people.

  • Amazing Guide. Loved the whole day. Had sunshine on the canal cruise. Do this for sure.Miseums not to missed.

  • The only way to see this! Great information from terrific docent, delicious food with local flavor, and a wonderful canal cruise!

  • We were more than satisfied with this tour. Steve, our tour guide, was so knowledgeable and professional and knew all the tricks to afford us the opportunity to see as much as we could during the tours of the museums. His knowledge of the art and presentation was fabulous. He pointed out and explained things we would have never looked for or seen on our own. He also knew the layout of the museums which helped to maximize that which we were able to see. You would be remiss if you got to Amsterdam and did not take this tour. We took this tour with Steve on October 28, 2017.

  • Steve was super knowledgeable! Great tour guide and a great way to learn about The Netherlands history through the beautiful culture and museums. Thumbs up!

  • Really enjoyed the museum tour and canal cruise. Learned so much from the tour and also from Pieter our tour guide.
