What to expect

For those who aren’t familiar with Dutch culture – and who is really? – explore its rich and vibrant past on this popular combo tour. It’s the perfect way to mix culture, history, and sightseeing while spending the day with your vibrant young guide. The 5 to 5.5 hour private tour will include a visit to the Rijksmuseum followed by a historic walking tour of the city center. Enjoy a private group of only your friends and family. Guides will provide you with a ticket that allows you to enter the museum.

Begin at Holland’s answer to the Louvre, called the Rijksmuseum. Explore Dutch history through a selection over 8000 objects on display. Discuss familiar names like Rembrandt as well as lesser known items like 17th century dollhouses. Understand the meaning behind Vermeer’s “The Milkmaid” and marvel at the expansive 19th century library. At the end of the tour, you’ll have a good overview of the museum’s collection and you may even know how to pronounce its name correctly.

After a break for lunch, move outdoors and orient yourself to Amsterdam with an introduction to its history and learn how a small 12th century fishing village with a simple dam became one of the most popular capital cities in the world. Your guide will crisscross its iconic canals and bridges while peeking into its quiet courtyards, offering a postcard image of the city. You will discover its leaning houses and other landmarks while learning how to navigate the oftentimes tricky streets of the city center.
