Amsterdam Private and Small Group Guided Tours

This welcoming and laid-back city is famous for Dutch masterpieces, tilting gabled architecture, UNESCO world canals, and more.
Amsterdam's canals and narrow houses offer echoes of its Golden Age in the 17th century, when explorers, investors, and traders led the city into a tremendous boom, and Dutch Old Masters painted the artworks that have captivated generations since. In more recent years, artists, immigrants, and social progressives have transformed Amsterdam into a forward-thinking and artistic metropolis. Immerse yourself in the glory of Amsterdam with Context's private and small group walking tours.

With over 20 Ph.D.-level expert guides in the city, our Amsterdam private tours and small group tours are designed for culturally curious people who want to dive deeply into Dutch art, history, and architecture. Curious? Join our Rijksmuseum Tour with an art historian and discover this world-class museum. Or perhaps you would like to learn more about explorers and 17th-century trade on our Dutch Golden Age Tour. Or maybe you'd like to ponder a tortured genius on our Van Gogh Museum Tour. Another one of our popular Amsterdam private tours is our Jewish Amsterdam Tour, which visits the famous Portuguese Synagogue. We also run a Red Light District Tour, led by a social historian that looks widely at Dutch progressivism and the idea of Amsterdam as a "model city."

I can't think of anything to improve. Sabry was wonderful - very engaging and informative. We learned more during our tour than during a whole semester of art history in college!
She was excellent Timely Knowledgeable Extremely pleasant Flexible
I cannot give a guide a more enthusiastic review than I would give to Sabry. He was fascinating to listen to as he pointed out details in the various works of art and placed them in the context of their time. Like many world-class museums, the Rijksmuseum is overwhelmingly large and comprehensive, but within that milieu, the works that Sabry selectively chose to highlight were thoughtfully selected and told a smaller story in a very intelligent, engaging and comprehensive way. I have used Context many times and the guides have always been very knowledgable and interesting and the tours have always been "a cut above." But within that high level of quality, our tour with Sabry ranks at the top, along with perhaps 1 other.
