Very informative Rembrandt and Amsterdam city tour
Raenell_R
, Aug. 2022
This was a very informative private tour about Rembrandt's life as well as the city of Amsterdam. Our guide took us through many areas of the city where we learned so much more than we would have just touring on our own. We were given some information once inside the museum but then left on our own to explore. The museum has a wonderful lunch spot which we were able to enjoy.

The tour was great! we were a little late but the guide was patient. We wished the guide has the painting references printed out to refer too instead of searching on her cell phone for the painting. Sad we didnt visit Rembrandt‘s home. Other than that, it was good.

We took this tour about two months ago and found the sites we visited very well chosen as they fully met our interests and curiosity. We would like to put special emphasis on the exceptional competence of our guide, Maya SP, who every step of the way provided surplus information and commentary on Amsterdam, which otherwise we suspect would have been impossible to have. So, we would highly recommend both the tour and the guide. Moreover, we would recommend, and we ourselves would take, every tour with Maya as a guide.

Never thought much about Rembrandt until this tour. Our guide brought him to life from the house where he lived to his paintings in the Rijksmuseum. Ours was a private tour, just 4 of us. It was a great experience and I recommend it to everyone who visits Amsterdam.

Wonderful walking tour with Willem! Best tour we have ever taken! Very knowledgeable and thoughtful. He gave us lots of info on Rembrandt for 4 hrs as well as giving us wonderful information on Amsterdam the city, people and historical times. He spent at least an hour in the museum giving a wealth of information not only on Rembrandt but on the Rijksmuseum and how it had been built and remodeled!

We have learned many new and interested facts about Rembrandt, his master piece Night Watch, his artistic style, his contemporaries eg. Vermeer, from Daphne Duyne, our tour guide. Daphne is so passionate and knowledgeable about Rembrandt and other Dutch painting artist. It was a very nice and leisure walking from Rembrandt house to Rijksmuseum, we have also learned Dutch history along the way.

We really enjoyed our tour and the ability to walk as fast or as slow as we wished or to linger when something interested us. Derek was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and the interesting little architectural items we never would have noticed on our own. I expected more of Rembrandt-focused tour, but Derek's information was much broader than that, encompassing the descriptions and history of each of the stops along the way, regardless of its association with Rembrandt. We found that very enlightening, since it was our first visit to Amsterdam.

A wonderful historical guided tour through Amsterdam by one of the best guides we have ever had. We were initially almost an hour late for our tour because it was our first day in Amsterdam and the starting location was confusing to us. Our guide waited patiently for and was wonderful.

I highly recommend this private tour. My guide, Lia Kijzer, was terrific. She was on time, very personable and knowledgeable about the history of Amsterdam, Rembrandt, the places we should see, and the Rijksmuseum. It was such a pleasant day, like spending the day with a friend :-. It was a lot of walking and talking, and the four hours went very quickly. If you like walking, love history, and are interested in learning then this tour is for you.

, Nov. 2015
Having taken two Viator walkiing tours in Rome last Autumn when each group consisted of more than 20 people, my husband and I were extremely surprised to find that we were the only two tourists to be walked around Amsterdam by Massimo. He was delightful, and we enjoyed his company for more than three hours, finishing in the Rijksmuseum. Perhaps his knowledge of Rembrandt and art in general were, by his own admission, only slightly less superficial than our own, but he worked extremely hard to keep us informed and entertained.

A fabulous way to experience Amsterdam! Although the focus was Rembrandt, our guide Willem did an excellent job answering our many questions and explaining many facets of everyday life in Amsterdam past and present. The time just flew by--what a great experience!

We had a private 4 hour walking tour and entrance to the museum. Diederik Ravesloot was our guide. We had to meet him at the Rembrandt museum to start the tour. He was on time and very knowledgeable about the area. He stayed withus the whole time making sure to take us to the highlights in the museum. One of the best things we signed up for.
