So glad we booked this all day tour. It was totally worth it. Our guide Pieter was very knowledgeable and passionate about what he showed and taught us. You do cruise through the museums at a quick pace, but you are sure to see the major highlights. Lunch at the Rijks is fine, a bowl of soup, cheese sandwich and coffee, tea and juice. The canal cruise was a nice break from all the walking. Pieter was also very happy to take family photos for us. All in all a great day.
Great tour.

Great tour of the museums. Pieter, our tour guide, is very insightful. His passion for art is very evident that he was able to impart the story/history behind the paintings and the artists. Will definitely recommend this tour. Pieter is the best!

I loved this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the various artists. She explained different styles and what various objects in paintings were depicting. I am not an art person, but I have a new appreciation after this tour.
Best way to see the museums

Guide was excellent. Showed us what he considered to be the most important pieces of art and explained why. He was very knowledgeable. We would have been clueless on our own. Lunch was good as was the canal tour. That break gave us a chance to rest our feet before moving on to the second museum. Highly recommend this tour!

Dutch Masters Tour

Excellent tour. Guide was superb. One issue for those that like to take the Rijksmuseum...not supposed to in the Van Gogh museum... but I saw many who did... even with a flash!...the guide wouldn't let us take photos until she was done talking about the painting except she'd go off to the next painting before we had time to take I was always trying to play catch-up to the next painting...but in fairness... there was a lot to see... and we barely had time for photo taking...but if you like wonderful art... this is a great tour

I think these tours are a great way to see a city If you’re interested in art Or even if you’re not - this tour was informative and fun. Monique, our tour guide, is extremely knowledgeable. With a wealth of information, I consider her to be a A Dutch master as well.
