Zoom with us to The Netherlands to meet our fantastic, local guide – Tricia – who will take us on three journeys to learn about the art, the artist, and the surroundings of two renowned Dutch painters.

Our Tours Include:

Van Gogh’s Dutch years (Dec 7)

Explore Van Gogh’s early (dark) works, painted while he was still living in the Netherlands. Dive into his early life, his complex personality, and his family ties. Enjoy not only learning about his paintings but also taking a very scenic virtual walk through Nuenen, a picturesque town in the South. Stand at the various spots where Van Gogh made his paintings and walk past his father’s grave.

Young Rembrandt in Leiden (Dec 14)

Rembrandt was the son of a miller and grew up in the provincial city of Leiden. Discover both some of his early works while also taking a “tour” of the charming Leiden. Note that the Pilgrim Fathers lived in Leiden before sailing to the New World.

Rembrandt in Amsterdam (Dec 21)

Head to the capital to look into the artist’s life, customers, paintings and to “visit” parts of the city that were of importance to Rembrandt.
