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.

We took this tour about two months ago and found the sites we visited very well chosen as they fully met our interests and curiosity. We would like to put special emphasis on the exceptional competence of our guide, Maya SP, who every step of the way provided surplus information and commentary on Amsterdam, which otherwise we suspect would have been impossible to have. So, we would highly recommend both the tour and the guide. Moreover, we would recommend, and we ourselves would take, every tour with Maya as a guide.

Never thought much about Rembrandt until this tour. Our guide brought him to life from the house where he lived to his paintings in the Rijksmuseum. Ours was a private tour, just 4 of us. It was a great experience and I recommend it to everyone who visits Amsterdam.
