A Museum that is not to be missed - The museum, of course, is fabulous, and our guide was terrific. Romy Muste was both knowledgeable and engaging. She led us through the museum at our pace providing both artistic and historical information about the artwork. My wife is an artist and taught University-level painting and drawing classes for over 30 years before retiring to focus full-time on her own work, so she and Romy were able to engage in sophisticated discussions of what we were viewing. It was a fabulous experience.

Great way to experience the Van Gogh Museum - We had waited too long to get tickets to the museum, so we instead opted for a more expensive but personal, small group tour, and we are very glad we did! Jo was quite knowledgeable, and she also brought to life the art and life of Van Gogh through her own personal experiences and immersion in the art world. The museum was quite crowded, but she efficiently navigated us as efficiently as possible and kept us interested along the way. We also very much appreciated having the headset which allowed us to easily hear her amidst the noise.
