    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Van Gogh Museum, Museumplein 6, 1071 DJ Amsterdam The Netherlands

    Meet your English-speaking guide just Across from the Rikjsmuseum to begin this intimate private tour. Sail past the Van Gogh Museum's main entrance lines with a priority-access ticket and explore the museum's highlights with exclusive attention from your guide. As you make your way through the world’s biggest Vincent van Gogh art collection, your guide leads you through the artist's darkest, initial Dutch paintings to his more vibrant French period. Study iconic van Gogh works like Sunflowers, as well as his lesser-known paintings and drawings. Hear about van Gogh’s troubled life and artistic styles, and see famous pieces from renowned fellow artists like Gauguin, Monet and others who inspired the mad genius. Your private tour concludes at 3pm but your entrance ticket is valid all day, so you may continue to explore the museum at your leisure.

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

    Stop At: Babylon Tours Amsterdam, Dam 1, 1012 JL Amsterdam The Netherlands

    Amsterdam conjures up images of a less-than-puritan style of life, but we’re here to show you that this city offers way more than just the Red Light District – even though it’s a part of it! Our English speaking guides will help you cut the lines and explore the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, two of the city’s biggest attractions, on private or small group tours. With Babylon Tours, we’ll help you experience the historic side of Amsterdam, but we know how to let down our hair, too. Join us as well to explore the, let’s call them, alternative venues of the Red Light District with one of our energetic young guides.

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

    Great tour with a knowledgeable guide who was clearly passionate about Van Gogh. I had initially booked the tour because the museum was sold out but the tour was well worth the added price. Highly recommend.

    We had a private with Victoria which was extra special as she had just returned from visiting his gravesite. She is passionate about Van Gogh and the museum as a whole. She is extremely knowledgable about his work, life and death. I'd highly recommend her.
