Holly was an excellent guide. She had a very thoughtful approach to the museum, its attractions, and how to think about what you were seeing. She was excellent and I would definitely recommend this to anyone attempting to visit the Rijksmuseum for the first time.

This early morning tour was excellent. My guide, Holly, was an expert and shared her wealth of knowledge on the Dutch masters. I was fortunate that the other registered guest did not show up and I ended up having a private tour. She took me to the popular works before the crowds. The best part was the discussion of the works and tidbits of info about the times that the artists were living in and what is known about their personal lives. So glad I took a chance on this new Walks tour!
