What to expect

During your skip-the-line guided visits to the Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam with a canal cruise and lunch, you'll see some of the world's most famous art masterpieces by Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Frans Hals and Johannes Vermeer. Take advantage of fast-track entry and let yourself be guided through two of Amsterdam's top museums: the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum.

Your full-day, all-inclusive tour begins in the charming museum square district. Your guide will bring you to the Rijksmuseum where you'll skip the line and head directly inside to see the wonderful artwork.

The museum's magnificent collection showcases artwork, crafts and historical pieces spanning the year 1200 to the present, including masterpieces such as Vermeer’s Milkmaid and Rembrandt’s Night Watch. The Rijksmuseum's entire collection comprises one million items, with 8,000 on display in 80 galleries. You will also enjoy lunch at the Rijksmuseum.

Next, enjoy a special Amsterdam canal cruise tour through the picturesque UNESCO-protected canal district. From the boat, you will have the best view of charming bridges, canal houses and gables, churches, towers and other highlights typical of the city.

The Van Gogh museum is home to more than 200 of the artist's most iconic paintings, the world's largest collection, as well as many letters and drawings. You can also see work from artists who inspired Van Gogh as well as artwork displayed from other 19th century painters. With a small group and professional, historic tour guide, you will learn the best information and have all of your questions answered.

Your tour ends here and you're welcome to stay a little longer to explore the museum at your leisure.
