    Stop At: Rijksmuseum, Museumstraat 1, 1071 XX Amsterdam The Netherlands

    Holland’s version of the Louvre is a must, and this tour will introduce first-time visitors to the impressive and expansive collection that curates Dutch history over the centuries. For those who aren’t familiar with Dutch culture, we will explore its rich and vibrant past through a selection of paintings and artifacts from the 8000 objects on display. We’ll explore familiar names like Rembrandt while discussing lesser known items like 17th century dollhouses and Vermeer’s portrait of domesticity, “The Milkmaid.” There’s even a fascinating 19th century library containing more stories than we could ever tell. By the end, you’ll have a good overview of the museum’s collection and you may even know how to pronounce its name correctly.

    Highlights Include: (if artwork is not on loan or being restored etc.) 

    Rembrandt masterworks

    The Night watch 

    The Jewish Bride 

    The Syndics of the Drapers' Guild 

    Vermeer's The Milkmaid 

    19th century library 

    17th century dollhouses, globes, ship replica, and Delft ceramics

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

    Stop At: Babylon Tours Amsterdam, Dam 1, 1012 JL Amsterdam The Netherlands

    Amsterdam conjures up images of a less-than-puritan style of life, but we’re here to show you that this city offers way more than just the Red Light District – even though it’s a part of it! Our English speaking guides will help you cut the lines and explore the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, two of the city’s biggest attractions, on private or small group tours. With Babylon Tours, we’ll help you experience the historic side of Amsterdam, but we know how to let down our hair, too. Join us as well to explore the, let’s call them, alternative venues of the Red Light District with one of our energetic young guides.

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

    It was only my spouse and I and it could not have been better. Victoria knew what she was talking about and knew how to draw us into the art; how to let us see the small things your brain processes on auto pilot, turning them into the Big things that *make* a piece. She knew the

    Selina was a fabulous guide who brought the paintings alive by initially taking us to see items of glass and porcelain - an area of the museum that we would never have thought of visiting. Its always a relief to be shown around a museum by someone who knows exactly where to go
