Your guide will meet you outside the Rembrandt House Museum at your chosen time. On this 4-hour private walking tour, you’ll be taken to sites throughout Amsterdam relating to the famous 17th-century Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn, all while hearing about his life and achievements as the greatest painter of the Dutch Golden Age and one of the most important artists in Dutch history. Since this is a private tour, you can customize your exact itinerary; simply let your guide know if there are any specific sights you'd like to see.

Your starting point is the former house that Rembrandt lived in with his first wife, Saskia, during the artist’s wealthy days, before the financial hardships and personal tragedy of his later years. Restored to its former glory, the house is now a museum furnished with a superb display of Rembrandt’s etchings, works and personal items.

From here, it’s just a few steps to the South Church, where Rembrandt is said to have painted his most famous masterpiece, The Night Watch. Next, pass by the Weighing House, where he painted The Anatomy Lesson of Dr Nicolaes Tulp.

After visiting Dam Square, arrive at West Church to see where Rembrandt is buried. You'll hear about the house nearby where the painter spent the last days of his life.

Continue walking along Amsterdam’s scenic canals to Museum Square, arriving at the Rijksmuseum for a guided tour. This museum holds the most notable collection of Rembrandt's work in the Netherlands, offering a stately display of his signature talents: portraits, self-portraits and illustrations of scenes from the Bible.

Admire some of Rembrandt's most famous paintings including The Jewish Bride, Syndics of the Drapers' Guild and The Night Watch, with its remarkable use of shadow and light. Your guide will reveal the stories, techniques and significance behind each piece, as well as works by other famous painters of the Dutch Golden Age. You’ll discover what makes Rembrandt’s work so unique and revered, and begin to understand why he has been considered “one of the great prophets of civilization.”

Your tour ends at the museum, and you’re free to continue exploring on your own.

The guide arrived on time and personalized the tour. It was less about Rembrandt than the city, but the tour worked well for me.
