Full description
Immerse yourself in the art and culture of Amsterdam on a full-day tour, including skip-the-line entry to the Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum.

Start in the Museum Square district and see masterpieces of art at the Van Gogh Museum. Your guide will take you to some of the most prominent paintings of the Dutch master, as well as show you some of the letters and drawings that chronicle his life. Displays of art by other artists chart the influence Van Gogh had on a variety of 19th-century painters.

After your guided tour, you are free to browse the museum shop and enjoy lunch in the museum’s café. Next, cruise the picturesque canals of Amsterdam´s Canal Belt to see stunning bridges, canal barge houses, churches, merchant houses and more.

Then, skip the long lines to the Rijksmuseum for a private tour of the recently renovated galleries and discover art works that date back to 1200 up to the present day. Marvel at masterpieces, such as Vermeer’s “Milkmaid” and Rembrandt’s “Night Watch.” Boasting a collection of some 1 million items, the Rijksmuseum is a treasure chest for art lovers and the curious alike.

End your tour outside Coster Diamonds, one of the oldest still-working diamond polishing factories in the city, where you will get a free entrance ticket to the Diamond Museum to learn more about Amsterdam’s diamond trade on your own.
