    Rijksmuseum
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Holland’s version of the Louvre is a must, and this tour will introduce first-time visitors to the impressive and expansive collection that curates Dutch history over the centuries. For those who aren’t familiar with Dutch culture, we will explore its rich and vibrant past through a selection of paintings and artifacts from the 8000 objects on display. We’ll explore familiar names like Rembrandt while discussing lesser known items like 17th century dollhouses and Vermeer’s portrait of domesticity, “The Milkmaid.” There’s even a fascinating 19th century library containing more stories than we could ever tell. By the end, you’ll have a good overview of the museum’s collection and you may even know how to pronounce its name correctly. Highlights Include: (if artwork is not on loan or being restored etc.)  Rembrandt masterworks The Night watch  The Jewish Bride  The Syndics of the Drapers' Guild  Vermeer's The Milkmaid  19th century library  17th century dollhouses, globes, ship replica, and Delft ceramics

Fantastic Tour!
Feb 2020
This was absolutely a fantastic tour. My son and I were fortunate to be the only people on the tour! Our guide, Ilaria, was extremely personable, educated and passionate about art. She shared insights into the time period of major works. Ilaria also broke the paintings down so we could see how the individual parts make up the total work. She brought a depth to the museum that we would have otherwise missed. I feel very lucky to have selected this your and it was well worth it!

Fabulously informative
Jan 2020
Cecilia was not only knowledgeable, but also quite engaging. There was only one other person on our tour, so we were able to engage in conversation and ask questions easily. I loved that the tour and the museum was not overly-crowded. Cecilia taught me so much about the Dutch in general, explaining aspects of their lives that are imperative to understanding Dutch art. Completely worth the price. Cecilia was fantastic.

Victoria exceeded expectations!
It was only my spouse and I and it could not have been better. Victoria knew what she was talking about and knew how to draw us into the art; how to let us see the small things your brain processes on auto pilot, turning them into the Big things that *make* a piece. She knew the history of the city and the artists.
We will be lucky to get another guide like her, but she is why we will most likely book more private tours.

Brilliant tour - paintings brought alive by Selina
Jan 2019 • Family
Selina was a fabulous guide who brought the paintings alive by initially taking us to see items of glass and porcelain - an area of the museum that we would never have thought of visiting. Its always a relief to be shown around a museum by someone who knows exactly where to go to see the highlights without the crowds - and then really explains what we are seeing and asks us to really look at the pictures and look beyond the obvious - 2.5hrs of wonderful art history. Thank you!
