5 out of 5 stars (5 reviews)


Our full day, all-inclusive tour begins in the charming museum square district. Your guide takes you to the Van Gogh museum, skipping the long entrance queue, and heading directly to see the magnificent artwork. 

The Van Gogh museum is home to the world´s largest collection of paintings by the famous artist, with more than 200 of his paintings, as well as many letters and drawings. You can also see the work of those who inspired Van Gogh and various displays of art by other 19th century painters.  With a small group and a professional, historic tour guide, you will get the best information and have all your questions answered. After the tour, you have free time in the museum shop and can enjoy a cup of coffee at the museum café (included in price of tour).

Next, we take you on a special tour through the picturesque canals of Amsterdam.  Amsterdam´s canal ring is stunning and is even included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. From the boat, you have the best view of the charming bridges, canal houses and gables, churches , towers and other highlights unique to the city. Not only can you enjoy the sights and sounds of Amsterdam, but the taste as well! On a 1.5 hour guided tour, you cruise the canals while enjoying a light lunch onboard (included in price). 

Following the canal cruise, your guide takes you to the Rijksmuseum. Once again, you get to skip the long line and head straight into the museum for your private tour. This recently renovated museum has a magnificent collection, showcasing artwork, crafts and historical pieces dating back from the year 1200 to the present, including masterpieces such as Vermeer’s Milkmaid and Rembrandt’s  Night Watch. The entire collection of the Rijksmuseum is an incredible one million items, with 8,000 on display in 80 galleries. You will not want to miss the art, culture, and stories on this tour.  

Then, our guide will take you back to Coster Diamonds, where you will receive a free entrance ticket to the Diamond Museum.

" Great Information throughout the tour "
5 out of 5 stars
I don't think we would have learned as much without doing a guided tour. Our guide was able to take us right in and to the front of the crowd at each exhibit.
" A Day well spent "
5 out of 5 stars
This was a superb experience for me and my two boys age 14 & 16. Stephen was a great guide with vast knowledge and the ability to impart it to everyone in the group.
" How great thou art. "
5 out of 5 stars
A great way to spend the day in Amsterdam. Our guide Pieter was the best you could ask for. He was vary passionate about his work. Putting away the cameras and just enjoying the art with his incredible knowledge is the way to go. The lunch and canal tour gave a nice balance to the museums. The price is a bargain for what is included. Go!

We thought our tour leader Michael was excellent, his passion and knowledge of the subject was brilliant and provided an insight that our party would never have foreseen without his expertise
" Awesome tour and guide "

Pieter was amazing! His knowledge of art and Dutch history was impressive. Seeing amazing art is one thing, knowing the story behind it and the detail that went into turns a tour into an experience. Great job!
