Anna is absolutely amazing! She was an exceptionally insightful and incredibly informative guide on our private tour of the Van Gogh museum. Anna brought Van Gogh to life for our family, and we walked away understanding more about the artists paintings while reveling in the story of who Vincent Van Gogh might have been. Having Anna as a guide is a must while in Amsterdam!

T’he experience have been excel·lent. Our guide make all very easy, and his english was very clear for t’he people that easn’t english in the group. On the other hand, the activity was a little bit long (two hours).

The guide was extremely informative and I loved finding out the different aspects of Van Gogh's life. Loved how his art progressed through his experience. And that bit of mystery on his death, truly fun!

very good job from the person who gave the tour in the Van Gogh museum!!! I learn about Van Gogh but not just about his paints, also about him and the meaning for some of his paints that I didn't know

Our tour guide, Cecilia was very knowledgeable, answered very many questions, and has a real understanding for the depth of van Goghs history
