A very effective way of visiting widely different parts of the city and at the same time seeing canal-side life. Useful information from the (presumably) recorded narrative about what you're passing although it sometimes got out of synch with the locations.
The best guide was from a young female pilot who gave an amusing alternative narrative and some excellent insights from the point of view of an Amsterdame. Have recommended it and will use it again.
Great way to tour Amsterdam. Think of this as your city transportation pass for one or two day period. We purchased the 48 hour pass and it was not too much. We actually signed up for the pass for the day we flew in from the U.S. But we were too wiped out to start using it that day. We went to the office right outside Centraal Station to see if we could start the pass the next morning instead...the folks at the tour desk were very friendly and told us "no problem." There are three different loops operating to different sections of Amsterdam...we sampled them all. The canals are truly the best way to get around this beautiful city.
It was a relaxing way to get around Amsterdam, and we saw most of the main sights with good information along the way. The canals are lovely so we couldn't imagine a better way to see Amsterdam. Good value for ,money too.
We were on a cruise ship leaving on Wednesday so we arrived in Amsterdam on Tuesday. Because this is 24 hours, we could take one loop on Tuesday afternoon and another Wednesday morning on the same ticket. It picks up right outside the cruise terminal, but watch the times as it only came once an hour and we missed it by two minutes and ended up walking to the next stop.
I really liked this tour. I was pretty tired from my travels when I took the Hop-On Hop-Off in Amsterdam so I really appreciated sitting back, relaxing and enjoying the architecture and history of the buildings.
What a great experience! It was so much fun to see the city from the canals. We got around everywhere and saw beautiful sights. We should have done it for 2 days. This is a fantastic way to get around and to see the city.
Perfect way to see the sites in Amsterdam. The canal buses stop at every major site
Easy to find and ride. Didn't have to wait. Pre-recorded sightseeing announcements were enough to get a good flavor of Amsterdam. It stops at all the major sights, but you can also simply cruise for hours.
Great way to get around Amsterdam and self tour. Convenient and well worth the price.
Would use it again when in Amsterdam
This was an excellent tour. The meeting points were very well marked and ponts of interest along the way very interesting.
Wonderful way to experience Amsterdam! Love that it runs year round.
This was the perfect way to get to various destinations, we did the three "lines" and hopped on and off when we fancied it .... would recommend to anyone visiting Amsterdam to buy this.
It was the best way to visit the city. The waiting lines are not so long and you can enjoy your travel along the canals. Any time you like something, you can go down from the boat and enjoy the attraction. Recommended.
Nice idea!! We enjoy so much and learn a lot about Amsterdam main buildings. We combine with Van Gogh Museum and it was a good decision. Amsterdam is a so beautiful city and visiting with the hop on-hop off boat was really cool. Beautiful
This is a special way to visit Amsterdam. You get to know the city from its canals. You also get to all the places you wanted to visit. A pure delight at a reasonable cost.
The hop on hop off boat ride was a great way to see the sights in Amsterdam. We always do these in major cities to sightsee. The only suggestion would be to use ear phones for the commentary as the audio could not be heard due to other noises. I suggest all travelers use these for seeing the city.
It gave us a great review of the city, we would recommend it highy. Very nice to stop off and than at your leisure get back on the boat to see more. Very nice , and the boat people were great.
We had a great time there. The hop on bus was convenient to where we wanted to go. It's a great experience.
