Private Tours in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is filled with exciting museums with fascinating collections including the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum and many more. A private tour in Amsterdam by Thinking Museum is a unique way to get acquainted with Amsterdam’s cultural heritage in a way that fits in with your interests and schedule.

We carefully design high quality private tours in Amsterdam for small groups led by English speaking qualified museum educators with extensive experience of teaching and guiding in museums. We have created engaging and inspiring museum programmes and walking tours to offer you an outstanding cultural experience during your visit to Amsterdam.

Re-thinking the traditional tour: our aim is to engage visitors in conversation about the museums we are visiting and the works of art or objects we are exploring. No two tours are ever the same!
