It was an excellent tour, our guide Clare was very knowledgeable and approachable. Great experience. We learned a lot about Vincent Van Gogh and different periods of his turbulent tragic life and his amazing art. The one thing we would improve is meeting point, it should be where all other groups meet - at the special entrance, instead of some obscure cafe. But, it is not Clare’s fault. She gets the highest marks. Jane & Eugene Rapoport

Our guide (Else) was incredible, we didn’t plan to follow the guided tour, but we stayed as she seemed to really love the art, and we could feel the passion the she clearly has for Van Gogh. We loved every minute of it, so big thanks to her!! 💫🫶🏼

The guide was very knowledgable and provide an excellent overview of Van Gogh. Would recommend....

Everything was good. The audio tool could probably guide the listener with left/right directions.

On time and it is good that we booked way before because tickets are sold out
