Less expensive to have purchased on my own

Was I supposed to receive a guided tour of the museum? We did not. Was this supposed to have included the self guided headphones with the ticket? We did not get them. This was really not a good value. Rated a 4 I let because we were happy to get tickets to the museum.

Good day I think that your advert is somewhat misleading. It creates the impression that both the Van Gogh museum and Boat cruise is guided tours whilst only the boat cruise is. I would rather have paid a bit more to have an audio guided tour in the Van Gogh museum as well. Then it would also be nice to know in advance that some of Van Gogh's most famous paintings are not in the museum but in New York. It was quite disappointing to find out that the Irises and Starry Night were held somewhere else

Worth every penny but you can skip adding in the canal cruise and easily purchase that at any time during your stay. I would just purchase the museum.
