  • The tour was well organized, started on time, the guide was very good and the bus was clean. Good to take this tour if you want a bird's eye view f Amsterdam. Highly Recommended.

  • It was a good way to learn about the items in the museum

  • Very good tour. our focus was on 17th century artists such as Vermeer and Rembrandt.

  • No stars, guide did not show, I had to buy a ticket and tour the museum on my own. Very disappointed in aviator!

  • This two hour tour was great! Our tour guide was well informed and an American so language was not a barrier. She gave lots of insight to the art and artists. You don't have to wait in line and can stay in the museum after the tour to see more of the collection. They have a fun gift shop but I would skip the restaurant. Expensive, long line and food is just okay.

  • The museum is amazing. However, be sure when you book your tour that you receive your entry tickets from the tour guide. She did not give us the tickets. To get a snack or even use the restroom required leaving the ticketed area and so we could not get back in even with our voucher for the tour. I really would have loved to spend more time after the tour going through the museum. Also our guide was very soft spoken and hard to hear. Not very engaging.

  • Loved having a private tour. Our group was only 6 people or so. The guide told us such interesting facts about paintings that gave me so much more excitement looking at paintings than I had before. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to go but, like me, doesn't know what to look for in art.

  • Our small group tour turned out to be a private one. The young woman that accompanied us through the museum was extremely knowledgeable, very informative and had a lovely personality!!! Absolutely made our trip! Can't wait to book another tour through Viator!

  • Excellent

  • Victoria our tour guide was excellent. Her passion for the amazing art was contagious. So thankful we had her along. She pointed out little details that we would have simply not noticed.
