    Victoria was great. She covered the topic of Van Gogh and his work thoroughly and enjoyably. Great museum!

    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.

    Victoria was spectacular. My tour ended up being a private tour, and Victoria and I went long with our tour. She knows the museum and Van Gogh's life very well with an obvious passion for his story, work, and life. We discussed many topics related to his life, and death, and some things with no relation at all to Vincent. It was a fantastic tour with a knowledgable and friendly tour guide, and I was left to explore more of the museum after the tour was done. Not only do I recommend it, I may take the tour again on another trip to Amsterdam.

    We booked a small group tour for Friday night 5-7; and it turned out to be a very smart move! Firstly, our tour guide ( who was delightful and extremely educated on her subject. I know this because I , too, work in the art field) took us right past the lines straight into the museum. Secondly, there weren't the usual hordes of tourists as the crowds tend to be a little smaller during these hours. Thirdly, our guide planned our route carefully through the museum weaving a cohesive and lively tale of Van Gogh's life and work, honing in on the best and most pertinent works. As an artist, I could not have been more pleased with an art tour. As a side note, we bumped into our guide a few days later while strolling around Amsterdam, and she not only remembered us but made s point of coming over to wish us a Merry Christmas. Like I said, booking a small group tour is a great way to see the museum in an efficient and informative manner and not get overwhelmed by the crowds.
