Easy and convenient on-line purchase with nice tour of the canals. The Rijksmuseum was well worth the time and was located directly across the street from the canal tour stop.

This is a great way to see Amsterdam. We went in peak season and on a hot day, so expected massive crowds, but still the canal boats coped and we were always able to get a seat whenever we hopped on at a stop around the city. Choose your colour as there are 4 different routes. The green and red are best and stay onboard first time, for the whole journey, so you get a feel as to what there is to see, then pick you places to visit and get on and off at those. Rijksmuseum is superb stop. The local markets are excellent too. Anne Frank House gets busy so for most of the day, the lines outside are too long and the canal boat takes you right to it, so if you see long lines, stay on the boat and see something else, and try and see Anne Frank House in the morning early when it opens as crowds are less then. The whole 48 hours we had the tickets, we went everywhere and great value for money and when the weather is nice,unbeatable way to see Amsterdam.

Great. We did all 3 lines of the Hop-on Hop-off boat and it was a great way to get around the city. I would suggest a multi day ticket if you have the time to be able to take your time and see all the sights. Museum was very nice but very crowded. At least the ticket let us skip the lines and go right in.

Have not been in Amsterdam for many years, with the Hop-off-hop -on ticket I could visit whatever I wanted and get back on. The Rijksmuseum was phantastic. I would do it again.

Good and relaxing way to see Amsterdam. The museum had a game we could play with the kids for an additional $5. It included an iPod like tablet with clues to find the secret word. Good way to keep them interested.

All perfect except for the one day ticket. At list 2 days needed for Rijkmuseum and Canal Boat, thinking that in the museum is needed at least 5 to 6 hours. If you plan buying the this kind of ticket, think twice - buy separately (trip boat and museum entrance ticket) in different days.

It is great to to see the city from the water and as a single boat journey it was good but the boats are too limited on their routes and spaced too far apart to be really useful as a hop on hop off option. we found it quicker and more flexible to walk between the sites. There were no queues at the Rijksmuseum so I cannot comment on if on a busier day it would have helped as skip the line.

3 star rating: Worth doing

It was pretty good. Saved my legs from walking everywhere. The commentary was also informative.

It was a real disappointment.The boat trips don't allow hopping off you go back to where you started from which means you must take other transportation to move about.It sounds like you can use the boatrides as transportation but that doesn't work.We were happy we had advanced reservations to the museum because everywhere you went there were long lines and the tickets allowed us to go in the fast line The boats were actually sold out but.We did take one half hour ride.I didn't think we got our moneys worth at all.Sorry this is so negative but that was how it was for us I would not do that again.

The first skipper we had was middle aged, bored and very aggressive with other boats. He also told 'jokes'. We were about half way through the tour when he announced that he was changing the tour he was taking, and downloaded us on to another boat, doing another tour. So only about half of Amsterdam. The good commentaries ,if a little brief, except for 'famous' venue, such as Ann Frank's House, were asy to hear, when the other passengers spoke more quietly.

This might have been nice...but I never got to use it! It was early afternoon when we arrived in Amsterdam, and this whole system is done by 6pm, with some routes done before that. We made the mistake of visiting other places before trying to get on, and by then we had missed the boat entirely as the last pickup was at 5:20 for the key route that we wanted. Other canal boat companies were still running well into the evening (summer in Northern Europe has it light until 10:30pm, and this is a TOURIST area). Needless to say, it was a complete waste of $90-some dollars and they wouldn't let us get on a different day because we had specifically purchased for the day we arrived.

The tour might have been great but I was able to book it online for Queens day but it was not running. Also the Rijksmuseum Ticket was not available for the day we booked for the King/Queen had a reception there. Viator should not be booking tours when they are not available! SO I CAN'T RATE IT ...it was disappointing.
