Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum Private Tour Description

This 4 hour tour includes:

  • Private English Speaking Local Guide

  • Admission to the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum

  • Guided Tour of the Two Museums

Van Gogh Museum

We tell you about the controversial life of the author through the contemplation of his work. 

Did you know that almost all his production, more than 900 paintings, is concentrated practically in the last 3 years of his life? What would it be that dragged the eccentric artist to this prolific production?

Our tour is about this obsession. We are doing it step by step, observing how he is progressing in his technique and who influenced his different stages. A tour full of curiosities and full of stories about the life and work of this genius.


After resting a little, we continue our visit to the Rijksmuseum, the most important museum in the country and also the largest.

To make the most of our time, we will first visit the classical room, where we will talk about the most important painters of the Dutch Golden Age, such as Rembrandt, Frans Hals, Willem Claeszoon Heda, Jan Vermeer or Jan Steen. 

With a realistic character, the intimate genre scenes reach all their splendor with these artists. Our task will be to analyze the distinctive value of each artist, the personal and technical contributions used while telling you the story behind each painting. 

The visit will continue through other rooms, where we will continue discovering hidden treasures.
