We met Angelo in front of the Rijksmuseum along with the six other guests for our tour. He was very knowledgeable about the paintings, painters and the related biographies and history. Angelo was very attentive to us and was able to answer all of our many questions. He maintained a high level of enthusiasm throughout the five hours we spent with him.
Professionally dressed Guide who worked for Babylon Tours arrived well before we did for 10 am tour Thursday, July 12, 2018 Easy to find location listed from aviator. She was prompt, personable and very knowledgeable. Bring your own lunch and water to drink @ lunch break. Key rental Lockers on ground floor near toilets very handy.
Interesting time well spent. Definitely recommend for first timers for the small group.
The tour was excellent. The tour guide was Anita, an art historian. Although she chose the paintings to talk about she was thorough with the art history and brought fresh perspectives to the paintings.
Victoria was our guide, and she definitely knows the subjects well. The tour for started a little late, but once we were going it was great. I didn’t realize we would stop for lunch, and I was very grateful that we did because it would be too much to do all in a row. Victoria was great to get us to move close into the paintings, and the. We would look from a distance to see how the art changed. She helped us see clues that we would have otherwise missed and set the scene for the culture at the time that changes how you view the art. She did a masterful job of telling the story of Van Gogh’a work and life. She also didn’t make us feel badly when we were ready to go at the end of the tour instead now of going to see the special exhibit. We were exhausted and had been traveling for a while at this point and our feet needed a rest! Great tour. If I had time, I might do the tours on different days but this was also an efficient way to get through it. Thanks Victoria!
Our guide Pina was a delight and extremely well versed in all topics pertaining to the tour. Although we had been to Amsterdam on several previous trips, her personalization of this art experience was unmatched.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and really helped us understand the Dutch Golden Age. It was a wonderful tour and excellent source of information for both the Rijksmuseum and VanGogh. They are soooooo crowded, I cannot think of a better way to actually learn something from your visit
