    Victoria gave us a great tour that moved along quickly but still told us all we needed to know and she was able to answer all questions we had. I've seen quite a few of Van Gogh's masterpieces in New York, Paris, Chicago and other places but to see the whole story in one place along with some wonderful paintings I had never seen was a great experience for me and my wife.

    My wife and I went on a private tour of the Van Gogh museum while on our honeymoon and it was wonderful. Our guide was very informative and friendly. We did not know much about van Gogh before visiting the museum so we wanted a tour to let us know the story and history behind what we were looking at. This was a great choice because we really got to learn the story behind his life and the stories behind each painting. We highly recommend booking the store if you're visiting Amsterdam.

    I would recommend this tour to anyone that will listen. Our guide was knowledgeable, passionate about her job, and very informative. We really enjoyed our visit and learned so much more than we ever have could on our own.

    We very much enjoyed this tour. Our guide was an expert on Van Gogh and gave an excellent talk regarding the struggles Van Gogh underwent to develop a style. We stopped at significant paintings along the way as examples of his struggles. We also got a good picture of the life Van Gogh lived and theories about his tragic death. We highly recommend this tour.
