What You'll Do
  • Forget long queues with skip-the-line Van Gogh Museum entry, including a museum ticket and guide
  • Learn all about the Dutch master and the stories behind his most significant works
  • Explore the Red Light district in all its glory
This tour is designed for first-time visitors to learn about the relationship between Van Gogh and Amsterdam’s iconic Red Light District, a relationship that resulted in the artist painting several scandalous works.
What to Expect
Vincent van Gogh wasn’t shy about indulging in a few dark pleasures and, after this tour, you’ll understand why. On this 5-hour tour you will trace some of those vices in an engaging and – hopefully – dignified manner. Skip the line with your guides, who will provide tickets that are valid for the whole day. 

You’ve probably heard about one of the world’s most famous painters, Vincent van Gogh. But what do you actually know about this Dutch artist? On this intimate, small group tour you'll be introduced to the man behind the famous sunflowers and self-portraits. Learn about him through his iconic paintings of people eating potatoes and of his own bedroom, or maybe his “Wheat field with Crows” or “Yellow House”. You will visit the world’s largest collection of Van Gogh’s works to learn about his turbulent life, stretching from his days in Holland to his dramatic ending in France. And yes, don’t worry, you'll also learn about that whole ear incident.

Then, after a break for lunch, your tour guides will keep it as dignified and serious as possible as you discuss the legal drug vendors, the leather neighborhood and the smoky “coffee shops” that attract people from around the world. Cast away your guilt and judgement, and discuss the etiquette and laws that allow you to appreciate this district to its fullest after the tour. The professional guides will lead you through the salacious streets and coffee shops of the Red Light District, following in the footsteps of Van Gogh himself.
