Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable about Van Gogh's work and his life. She made him come alive as she showed us the progression of his work. She actually spent extra time with us which was most appreciated. The only reason for the 4 instead of 5 star rating was the price, which was no fault of our guide! The private tour was the only way for us to get into the Van Gogh museum on short notice. I highly suggest booking a guided tour as soon as you know you want to go, well before you ever leave on your trip. The small group tour would have been fine and would have cost half of what the private tour cost. Even better would be booking with someone through "With Locals" or a similar site. That way the guide gets most of the money instead of the tour company.

Had a difficulty getting a ticket during Easter week but luckily there was still space available for the semi-private guided tour of the museum. The guide runs through Van Gogh's life through specific paintings giving us more in depth understanding of his works and his life. The guide made the tour in a very fluid yet thematic structure, which couldn't likely be emulated by an audio tour, making it all the more enjoyable experience.

Despite being more expensive than the entry ticket + audio guide, it's definitely a worthwhile alternative and you can still hang around in the museum to seep in your favorite painting in the museum as much as you'd like until the closing time.

This was our second Babylon tour in Amsterdam after taking no fewer than 5 Babylon tours in Paris. And simple but, Babylon Tours are always the best!!! Our guide was exceptional...professional, friendly, helpful, knowledgable and right on time (at the exact location) for where to meet. She presented the Van Gogh Museum beautifully (which can be a little overwhelming because there is so much to see). She kept our attention and focused us on pieces that were important in relationship to the overall art movement and/or what was happening in Van Gogh's world. It was an excellent experience and Babylon always delivers. That's why we'll always use them in the future...and so should you!!

Frank provided an excellent tour of the Van Gough Museum. Having Frank give a synopsis of Van Gough's short life and the progression of his brief but intense painting career made the visit to the museum memorable. The permanent Van Gough exhibit is quite large. Frank expertly described Van Gough's life challenges and how they affected his painting, his seminal works showing his growth as a painter, and Van Gough's well-known paintings. Time and money well spent.

Cecilia was a wonderful guide whose enthusiasm is infectious. I am not an "art guy" but Cecilia brought the Van Gogh story to life, with her knowledge and passion for all the works in the museum. I appreciated her fearlessness to elbow her way through the crowd so we could appreciate each piece on its own.

I am by no means an art head, but Anna was able to capture all my attention and intrigue with countless historical factoids that the 2.5 hours flew by in an instant. The way Anna flows through the museum and Van Gogh's life is kind of like a movie, as she has a well curated story to tell you, and she knows how to deliver that story with emphasis. Loved the tour, definitely surprised me to have enjoyed it that much. If you are in Amsterdam this tour is well worth the money.

Josje was our guide and she was energetic & well educated about Van Gogh. I am a tour guide in a museum in the USA so I am always comparing other guides skills & approach to my own. She made our tour fun & educational. I knew quite a bit about Van Gogh before the tour but she managed to bring in some new information to me! Only 8 of us on this tour which was perfect size to hear without a microphone. Would definitely recommend.

With my limited time and energy to see the extensive collection, Victoria was the perfect English speaking guide. She took time to understand my level of Van Gogh knowledge and my particular interest in his work. She then carefully crafted my tour to expand and deepen my understanding of Van Gogh’s life and works. Victoria would make a great art history teacher!
