We thought of was extremely knowledgeable about Vincent. He began the tour with various portraits of the artist. He quickly ascertain our extant knowledge of the artist and elaborated well beyond our knowledge base. We would not hesitate to recommend him to others and highly regarded by his professionalism.

Great tour! Unable to find tickets that were available for the museum, we booked this private tour. We will never book again without a private tour!! Rolf was so informative. We learned so much more. We had an 11yr old with us and Rolf kept him engaged and made it a fun learning experience. Definitely recommend this tour! Thank you!

My daughter and I had such a great experience with Rolf as our guide. He had so very much information and told us information we would not have received with an audio. He was prompt and we had no trouble meeting in front of the museum. He is truly an asset to your company. Would definitely recommend Rolf. Bravo!

Rolf is well studied in Van Gogh’s life, works and techniques. He speaks perfect English (having lived in NYC), and was able to quickly gauge our group’s intersest and tailor our visit accordingly. This is a very busy museum, particularly in the Summer, and having a guide like Rolf to manage your time, focusing on the interesting and important pieces was invaluable. Highly recommend!

We had a great tour with Rolf. He was very informative and pointed out so many things about the art it was very insightful. All three of us had a great time and he worked us through the crowd very well. It was great just being in a small group, gave up plenty of time to ask question. If you are going to the Van Gogh Museum .... go with Rolf !!
