Description
Culture & Lifestyle

Explore the major and lesser-known masterpieces of Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum in 2 hours. This iconic museum holds the largest collection of the Dutch Golden Age painting in Europe. Among the must-sees, works by Rembrandt van Rijn (The Night Watch, The Jewish Bride, Self-Portraits, The Syndics of the Drapers Guild), Johannes Vermeer (The Milkmaid, Woman Reading a Letter, The Little Street), Frans Hals, Jan Steen, Jacob van Ruisdael, and other Dutch masters. We will also explore the famous Delft Blue pottery, artefacts from Dutch maritime history, and stunning dollhouses—lavish miniature replicas of Amsterdam’s famous canal houses. The Rijksmuseum’s collection offers a fascinating insight into the Dutch 17th-century history and everyday life. The Golden Age was a unique time of prosperity and political greatness. We will discuss how it came into being, what everyday life was like, and how Dutch paintings of this time changed the face of European art. A private tour allows you to discover the museum at your own pace. You will enjoy the full attention of a professional guide and have an engaging, intimate conversation about art. Tickets (19€ / person) are not included. I can book them for you (no added fee), or you can book them yourself online. ABOUT ME I became a State-licensed guide in Paris, France. After guiding at the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Versailles, Grand-Palais and other Parisian museums and exhibitions, I moved to The Netherlands for family reasons. I now continue to guide in Amsterdam and The Hague. I hold 2 Master’s degrees—in French humanities and in journalism, and I continuously expand my knowledge of European art history and history. I’m not a lecturer though. I strive to provide academic-level tours in a fun and accessible way. I worked for several years in journalism and marketing before I embraced my passion for culture and became a guide. I enjoy the conversational format of a private groups, and I’m always happy to adjust the tour to your interests and needs. Any of my tours can be given in English, French or Russian languages.

My mission as a professional tour guide is to help you build a personal connection to Amsterdam— its modern and old history, atmosphere and exceptional art.

I use my versatile background in humanities, journalism, and marketing to turn academic cultural knowledge into fun and thrilling stories. I help you see the “why” behind the “what” and turn your tour into an exciting cultural discovery.

I moved to Amsterdam from Paris, where I had worked as a State-licensed tour guide. I hadn’t expected to love any new city so much—but here I am, completely infatuated with Amsterdam. And I’m happy to share it with you.
