    Amazing tour with Rolf!!!!

    Great tour! Unable to find tickets that were available for the museum, we booked this private tour. We will never book again without a private tour!! Rolf was so informative. We learned so much more. We had an 11yr old with us and Rolf kept him engaged and made it a fun learning experience. Definitely recommend this tour! Thank you!

    Rolf is highly knowledgeable and personable. Fantastic!

    Rolf is well studied in Van Gogh’s life, works and techniques. He speaks perfect English (having lived in NYC), and was able to quickly gauge our group’s intersest and tailor our visit accordingly. This is a very busy museum, particularly in the Summer, and having a guide like Rolf to manage your time, focusing on the interesting and important pieces was invaluable. Highly recommend!

    Rolf Schreuder was an excellent guide through the. An Gogh museum! When I booked the tour several weeks in advance, he immediately contacted me. He got a "No Wait" entry ticket. His tour was Excellent. He is energetic and very knowledgable about Vincent Van Gogh. You will definitely enjoy a trip around the museum with him
