What people are saying about Gelderland
interesting shame about the short time
Interesting visit, the museum is full of works of modern and contemporary art including beautiful paintings by van Gogh, Redon, Seraut etc. The only organized tour found for this museum from Amsterdam was a valid alternative to having to organize the trips by yourself for a rather isolated and if not self-driving park, difficult and uncomfortable to reach. During the trip the very nice and professional driver gave us useful information about Amsterdam and the Dutch in general, in English. The only drawback of the experience: time. Arriving at around 3.15pm the museum closed at 5pm, return time. Too little time to be able to see the park too.
Excellent visit; caring driver; perfect organization.
Very good A note: The requested presence time (8:15 am) for the departure made us arrive too early because the minibus did not arrive until 9:00 am (unpleasant wait in the fridge!)
