Our guide, Victoria, has a solid mastery of all things Van Gogh, and an infectious curiosity that leads to true appreciation for the personal and societal concerns that impacted the artist. Nearly as important, Victoria had the fortitude to lead our group directly through the throngs of ambling, photo-taking (and music-playing!) tourists right up to the art so that we could actually experience it as Van Gogh did (rather than hovering back in the cheap seats just hoping to get a brief glimpse). Victoria was able to actively engage with both Van Gogh novices and those who have clearly done a good bit of study, making the tour informative and entertaining for all. I've been on other tours with professorial guides and stuffy content, and this tour was thankfully the precise opposite of that. Highly recommend!
The guide, i am not sure his name.. and Italian.. was excellent.. He not only knew a great deal about the paintings and the history, but he was friendly and helpful. By the time i got to the Van Gogh museum i could no longer walk. He got me a wheelchair and pushed me all through the museum. He helped us on the elevators and finding the facilities. He was the best. peace, Harriet
Book on line early. Morning tours sell out quickly. The museum is a modern building. The exhibits are divided into various stages of Van Gogh's life displayed in different galleries . Stairs leading into each gallery can be challenging for seniors.
Guide was punctual, pleasant and very informative: he made the tour very enjoyable. We would do it again with him.
excellent guide. knowledgeable, interesting, friendly, and all the other things you could want in a travel guide.
