What You Can Expect

Amsterdam Hop-On Hop-Off Tour with Optional Canal Cruise

See Amsterdam's top attractions from a hop-on hop-off canal cruise!!

Amsterdam has so much more to offer than the hackneyed clichés of clogs, cheese and coffee shops; it’s a city that boasts Golden Age architecture, a postcard-perfect canal network and more culture than many other Northern European cities put together. The city screams to be explored with museums, art galleries and eclectic neighborhoods like Jordaan plus — of course — the historical Red Light District.

Aboard a comfortable, open-top, double-decker bus, admire these top Amsterdam attractions, as well as some of the city’s lesser-known gems such as Gassan Diamond Factory. Pass Vondelpark, the city’s lovely central park, and perhaps hop off your bus at Western Market to visit the Anne Frank House — arguably Amsterdam’s most thought-provoking museum.

With your ticket, you can remain on the bus for an entire loop (roughly 2 hours) as you listen to the informative audio commentary, or you can hop on and off at any of the 12 stops around the city to see Amsterdam’s enchanting delights.

Want to see the city from the water, too? Upgrade to include a hop-on hop-off canal cruise with your hop-on hop-off tour ticket, and cruise around Amsterdam’s romantic city canals.

We were able to board the canal tour directly across the road from our hotel and the stop for the bus only 3 mins walk away.We found the commentary very informative and the skipper on the canal boat was hilarious as well as knowledgeable.It was very easy to pick up our tickets at 26 Damrak and the young lady was very helpful and supplied us with lots of brochures etc.I wou7ld recommend this tour to anyone coming to Amsterdam even if they have been before.

Enjoyed the bus and canal rides and it was a great way to get an overview of the city. It was not real clear on where to get to the bus initially. It was also difficult to take pictures from the bus unless you were fortunate enough to get the front seat!
Would definitely do it again! Good value.

we did the 48hr bus/canal package, very much recommend. The tour information very useful about the city. The first day we did the bus and stopped off at the Heineken experience then completed the tour. Second day we relaxed, soaked up the sun on the canals, easy once you have a map.
