Tour: #246251, Rembrandt, Vermeer and more Dutch masters in Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, private walking tour, Amsterdam, Netherlands    
Date: Apr 29/18

Our May tour with Marianne was amazing. Her knowledge about the art in the museum, the City itself was very informative and the special stories she told were wonderful. She dealt with the rain with such charm and we kept on with our tour. She guided us carefully to avoid problems with the bikes and to give us good advice about other places to see on our own. We would highly recommend her. She is delightful and has a wonderful way of explaining things and handled all of our questions!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Cathy! I hope you have enjoyed the rest of your European tour. You were very good in accepting the Dutch rain as part of our charm and I am glad you had a great time!

Date: Apr 21/18

Marianne was our guide to the museums contains the Dutch Masters. On our way to Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum she walked us through different neighborhoods. Her knowledge of the historical development of Amsterdam was excellent and entertaining. The world may have been made by God but Amsterdam was made be the ingenious Dutch. Her historical and linear presentation of the works of Rembrandt and Van Gogh added greatly to our understanding of these ground breaking artists.

Tour: #246251, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and Van Goghmuseum, customized private art tour, Amsterdam, Netherlands    
Date: Dec 27/17

Marianne was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide. We toured both the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum on the same day. While that my seem like a lot, Marianne made it quite enjoyable. Her plan was to not try and see everything. Instead, she provided the historical perspective on the artist and time period. With this context in mind, she explained individual paintings in a way that offered a roadmap to how Rembrandt and Van Gogh created their masterpieces. We learned a lot and had a truly great day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael for this wonderful rating. I enjoyed the company and the interest of you and your family and hope you Will enjoy the rest of your chritsmas holidays. Come again to see the rest!

Thank you, Marianne, for being our "mom" during our first two days in Amsterdam! We enjoyed walking the canals with you and learning the history of the city before viewing the art at Rijksmuseum. We loved your enthusiasm, and you answered all of our questions. Your passion for and knowledge of the art really came through. Great job and we feel so luck to have had you!
