Art tours for expats

As true culture tourists, we believe art should be available and accessible to everyone. That’s why we also organise special tours for people living in the Netherlands.

Rijksmuseum Tour

If you want to learn about Dutch art and culture, there is no better place to go then Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum. The stunning 19th Century museum contains the largest collection of Dutch art in the world, with more than 80,000 works of art, spanning 800 years of Dutch history. All the masterpieces of the Dutch Golden Age are here, including Rembrandt’s famous Night Watch and Vermeer’s celebrated Milkmaid.


We’re going to focus on:

  • The Dutch Golden Age and the painters living at that time (Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hals, Jan Steen etc.)
  • The people who commissioned these paintings: the wealthy Dutch middle classes of the 17th century
  • The special techniques and materials these painters used
  • Recognizing their talent by drawing some of the details from their paintings

Price: €35 per person + entrance fee* (this is a small group tour, max 5 people in a group)
*Do you have a Museumkaart? Let us know so you don’t pay for the museum entrance fee!
Included in a price: private guide (art historian) | drawing material
Duration: 2h


Van Gogh Museum Tour

Vincent van Gogh is one of our most intriguing modern painters. The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam has the largest collection of his work in one place. Van Gogh produced around 1,800 pieces of art and developed a unique style in his short 10-year career as a painter. In this tour, you will learn about his life and will see some of the masterpieces of this post-impressionist artist.


We’re going to focus on:

  • Van Gogh’s life and how it affected his motives and his style of painting
  • His relationship with his brother Theo and the letters they sent to each other
  • The major changes in his painting style
  • How we can use all our senses to understand one of his most famous paintings and then try to sketch it ourselves

Price: €35 per person + entrance fee* (this is a small group tour, max 5 people in a group)
*Do you have a Museumkaart? Let us know so you don’t pay for the museum entrance fee!
Included in a price: private guide (art historian)

It was a pleasure working with Tea on organizing walking tours for expats, who had recently moved to the Netherlands. Tea is always quick and proactive in her communication and comes up with creative walking routes, instead of just showing the obvious spots of Amsterdam. She makes sure everyone enjoys her tours. I would happily recommend contacting Tea to anyone looking for a guide to show around Amsterdam!
