    Our guide Tea was very knowledgeable and friendly. If I had had the time, I would have definitely joined her for the private tour OG Rijksmuseum. Don't try to do the museums on your own. Crowds are massive and much hassle. Her service and the fast entry benefits are well worth it.

    Wonderful tour with a guide that was so knowledgable. She was very experienced and helpful. My guide was a fine arts major so she really knew in detail about Van Gogh.The time went so fast. I loved it! Such a pleasure.

    Absolutely incredible. Our guide was Victoria and her passion for the museum was infectious and palpable. The trip was awesome and we learned an awful lot about the man and the people who helped to shape his life. You can never really enjoy a museum unless you have some insight, and for me, this was well worth the money. We met two other lovely couples and felt totally at ease with our guide. She listened to us and was truly interested in our thoughts too, which was great. We weren't just listening, we were interacting and the time flew by.
