    Stop At: Rijksmuseum, Museumstraat 1, 1071 XX Amsterdam The Netherlands

    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.

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

    Stop At: Babylon Tours Amsterdam, Dam 1, 1012 JL Amsterdam The Netherlands

    Amsterdam conjures up images of a less-than-puritan style of life, but we’re here to show you that this city offers way more than just the Red Light District – even though it’s a part of it! Our English speaking guides will help you cut the lines and explore the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, two of the city’s biggest attractions, on private or small group tours. With Babylon Tours, we’ll help you experience the historic side of Amsterdam, but we know how to let down our hair, too. Join us as well to explore the, let’s call them, alternative venues of the Red Light District with one of our energetic young guides.

    Duration: 5 hours 30 minutes

    Irina was a great guid through both busy museums. This is a good way to hit the highlights, along with stories and background on the artists. I would recommend this tour rather than wandering on your own.
