Lovely tour and very informative,boats kept to time,barely a rocking motion.Definetly better than the bus,found ourselves using the boat as time went on.
It is the most convenient way to see the city, the boats are comfortable, centrally heated.
It was wonderful. What a great way to see and get around Amsterdam ! We didn't visit any of the tourist attractions but went on all 3 canal bus routes making it a very enjoyable day. My back problem made it difficult for me to walk very far so the canal bus was an ideal way of getting about.
It was a great way to see Amsterdam especially as we were there for only two days.
Would definately recommend it.

Great way to get around the old town and see the sights. Three different route that take you by all of the museums and historical sites. We will do this again.
Best way to get around Amsterdam is thru the canal on the Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus. The stops are located in areas I wanted to tour. The drivers are friendly and helpful and there is a pre-recorded narrative of the tour. Great value. With the 24 hour limit, we used the ticket two days.
Best way to visit all the main attractions in Amsterdam and great fun being in a boat on the canals.
Loved the Hop-On Hop-Off Canal Boat. With three different routes, the boats took us to or near almost every place in Amsterdam we wanted to go. It was convenient not only to our hotel, but also to our cruise ship. The rides included recorded highlights available in several languages. The default language is English but by simply asking the driver the tour other languages can be added so no one need be left out. Our two-day ticket was just right!!!
We enjoyed the Hop-On Hop-Off Canal Bus tour. It got us to the places we needed to go and we saw a lot of Amsterdam along the way. The commentary helped us understand what we were seeing. It was nice to be able to return to a drop-off spot and continue on our way. I only wish the canal bus came a little more often to the stops as we elected to walk to some destinations rather than wait 45 minutes for the next bus.
I loved riding along the canal to see beautiful Amsterdam. There were several different routes you could take depending on what you wanted to see which was nice. The boats ran pretty frequently. The staff on and off the boat were extremely helpful. The only negative would be that the boats did not run later. The lines stopped taking you back to the train station at 5:45PM.
On the first day of our weeklong stay in Amsterdam we chose the canal bus (boat) tour instead of the streetbus. It was the right choice. The boat is covered so you do not feel the cold and wind as much, but the seats are a bit low so you end up missing a lot of the sights that are sort of at eyelevel. It does, however, give you an excellent orienteering experience. especially if you do all the lines, and the recorded info guide gives quite interesting facts about the places you pass by. Not really convenient for transport from the hotel we were staying in, but could be for those staying close to one of the regular stops.
It was great! Was able to take pictures. The audio was very clear and informative.
So pretty and relaxing. Good info on the tour of where you are and what your seeing.

This was a great way to find all about what to see in Amsterdam. We didn't realize there were 3 different routes, so we were able to locate all kinds of locales we wanted to return to. It was a very relaxing way to commute. One of the best things was since the weather the 2 days was blustery with frequent showers, it was a great place to retreat to when the weather was not so great. It allowed you to feel like you were still exploring and not wasting your time, while at the same time staying dry.
One of the best hop on hop off tours we've done! The city commentary is pretty good, but the best part is that it's such a unique way to see the city.

Very courteous staff. The route is very comprehensive, and you have three route choices. I totally recommend this service.
I truly enjoyed this canal boat. At first I thought it was a hop-on hop-off bus, but it was a boat. It is truly the best way to see Amsterdam. I would highly recommend this tour. The boat is informative and gives you information about the museums and other attractions.
Such an easy way to get around the city. We booked a 2 day pass and used it to go everywhere. Note: If you like Chinese food, make sure to take the red line to the Sea Palace a huge pagoda-like restaurant in the middle of the river. The food was excellent and it was really fun to be dropped off and picked up right at the door.
It was nice going on a canal cruise, if you're taking photos, the windows are usually not clean so try to ask them to open the canopy for clear shots.
