Explore two must-visit Amsterdam museums — the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum — on a 5 to 5.5-hour, skip-the-line, small-group tour combo. With a guide, bypass the main queues at the Rijksmuseum to see the exhibitions on Dutch art and history from the Middle Ages, including masterpieces such as Rembrandt’s ‘Night Watch’ and others. After time for lunch, skip the line at the Van Gogh Museum. Enjoy a guided tour of the highlights, seeing Van Gogh 'Sunflowers,' and more.
What to Expect

Start your tour at the Rijksmuseum to see the work of some of Holland’s most famous artists, while learning about the country’s cultural history. Your guide will share stories about the museum’s best and quirkiest pieces as you explore a selection of paintings and artifacts from the 8,000 objects on display. Learn more about the work of Rembrandt, 17th-century Dutch dollhouses, and Vermeer’s portrait of domesticity, The Milkmaid. The museum is also home to a vast 19th-century library, the largest public art history research library in the Netherlands.

After a break, enter the Van Gogh Museum to learn more about the man behind the famous sunflowers and self-portraits that are featured in galleries around the world. See The Potato Eaters and The Bedroom as well as objects from his studio. Walk through the world’s largest collection of Van Gogh’s works while learning about his life, from his days in Holland to his dramatic ending in France. Your guide will discuss that whole ear incident, too. 

Depending on whether the artwork is on loan or being restored, your tour may include Van Gogh's large collection of self portraits, early and obscure works, objects from his studio, Sunflowers, Yellow House, and Wheatfield with Crows.

After five hours, your tour will conclude at the Van Gogh Museum.

Perfect Way to Experience 2 Must See Museums

Amazing way to spend the day

We had a wonderful visit and really enjoyed the art and learning about Rembrandt and Van Gogh. I’m rating this a 4 for two reasons. In the Rijk museum we only saw Rembrandt. There was so much more to see and we could have doubled...More

Informative tour, value for money!

Strapped for time on a quick trip to Amsterdam, we opted for the Semi-private guided tour of the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. We knew it would save us time standing in line and the group would be fairly small. But the tour turned...More

Outstanding museum tour: don’t miss it!

Given the rich cultural heritage of Amsterdam, we wanted to get a really good tour versus doing a self-guided one. Audrey, an American transplant from Florida, didn’t disappoint. Having lived and worked here for the past 13 years, also an accomplished art dealer, Audrey was...More

Sorry for the delay. Hope you got your question answered. The price was likely quoted in Euros, but when you went to pay, it gave you the USD amount.

This was a “small group tour”. There were 6 people plus the guide on this one. I’m sure they can vary. I suggest you email the tour company directly to see if there is a maximum group.

Hello: For 2 people we paid about US 330 dollars for the semi private tour of the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum. Well worth it but you'll probably be done with it by 3-3:30 PM. Ann Frank I don't think you need a semi private... More
