About this activity
Meet your guide bright at early at 8:55am in front of the Stedelijk Museum, next door to the Van Gogh museum. Explore the Van Gogh museum chronologically, beginning with the artist's darker Dutch period (like 
The Potato Eaters). Move onto Van Gogh's brighter Parisian works with Impressionist influence, and finish the tour by examining the works from his glory years in Arles, St. Remy, and Auvers-sur-Oise. With just your small group (maximum six people) and your private guide, learn about a series of events that occurred in Van Gogh's life and influenced his art. Your professional guide has been an educator and an art historian for decades, making this 90-minute tour ideal for school kids and adults alike. After saying goodbye to your guide at the end of the 90-minute tour, you can continue to explore the museum at your own pace.

We had a wonderful private tour of the Van Gogh museum from Drs Kees Kaldenbach - he has written a book about Van Gogh and offers insightful observations throughout along with putting Van Goghs life and experiences in context. The weave of knowledge and speculation allow even light-art folk like ourselves to engage with the material and gain a deep understanding in an effortless 2 hour stroll. We moved directly to the front of the line and were first into the museum and had unfettered access as we strolled almost alone discussing the works. Kees is delightful and customizes his approach to the audience, at once answering the most banal and basic and the more ambiguous and complex with the same interest and concern. His upper end of knowledge was certainly untested by us, however his depth and breadth of knowledge and his friendly demeanor made us feel like experts by the end of the tour! My highest recommendation!

We have been in the museum with this tour guide Kees and I would highly recommend to spend the time in the museum with him. His explanations were really interesting and he showed us other point of views on the work and life of Vincent Van Gogh. It was a great time with him... And if you are already in Amsterdam dont forget to go with Kees to Rijksmuseum - that was brilliant too

IMO, this is the ONLY way to see the Van Gogh museum. Kees the guide speaks perfect English and his expertise is both engaging and comprehensive. I learned so much more than I expected and it was fascinating. He combines all aspect of Van Gogh's craft -- his personal history, his family, his artistic influences, the development of his skill as an artist, the time in which he lived, etc. I HIGHLY recommend this tour. It costs more than the group tours, but there is absolutely no comparison!
