Highly recommend this tour for anyone coming from the US that has a love and/or curiosity of Van Gogh. The tour guide, ours was Monique, was very engaging and knowledgeable. She explained what was going on in Vincent's life, and in the world, during the time of his different works. The time went by so quickly!!

Anna is absolutely amazing! She was an exceptionally insightful and incredibly informative guide on our private tour of the Van Gogh museum. Anna brought Van Gogh to life for our family, and we walked away understanding more about the artists paintings while reveling in the story of who Vincent Van Gogh might have been. Having Anna as a guide is a must while in Amsterdam!

We had booked a small group tour (minimum two, max eight persons). Our guide, Faustina, was absolutely fantastic with her knowledge, and forthright access to the paintings - there was nothing about Vincent that she didn’t know. And to have get our group close and unobstructed access/viewing was really great!!! Her through life story and influences were very succinctly provided.
