We thoroughly enjoyed our history of Amsterdam tour with Giorgio, who was courteous, friendly, responsive to questions, and fun to be with. We talked about much more than just the Golden Age of Amsterdam, which however influential, was quite short. He knows the history well,...More

Wonderful tour of the Van Gogh museum. We all loved Eve. She hit all the right notes for our family of five (three kids 19,20,23). Private tour was a great way to see this intense museum.

Rolf was very knowledgeable and instructional. He shared a lot of insight into the art as well as the artists and he made the museum tour especially entertaining and educational. My husband and I both highly recommend this tour with Rolf!

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
