I did this in January, so there were no lines...which I understand to be completely different in the summer, making the presale tickets even more valuable. This is a quick and easy tour of the city. I knew nothing about Van Gogh and learned a lot get the audio tour. I also went to the Rijks museum again, get the audio tour. Then I took the 90 minute canal tour which gave a nice flavor of the city while I slowly worked through my jet lag.

It was great! We loved the Canal Bus Tour. It was so easy to stay at each stop and find a Canal Bus soon to go to the next stop. The Boat Guides were nice and very informative

The tour went exceptionally well from the check in and the boats and drivers.Having the prepaid Van Gogh museum voucher/ticket was most helpful. I went on both the green and orange lines and enjoyed every minute.

Van Gogh museum very interesting. Keep in mind skip the line just means skip the ticket line for ticket purchase. You still have to wait in the fairly long line to get in about 35 minutes for us_.

Canal bus is ok, but fairly minimal narration. Our hotel proprieter said the blue boats were better for a canal tour.

Wonderful river tour and skipping the long lines to the VG museum was really worth it.

Van Gogh Museum is a very beautiful museum, created with loving heart and pride of Vincent Van Gogh as a brilliant artist and honest, devoted to his brother Theo and his wife person- do not miss it if you have time in Amsterdam!
Canal bus was the best option to get acquainted with Amsterdam in one day!

Using the caanl hop-on hop-off bus made it easy to go everywhere we wanted to go. The boats were always on time and the pilots were very helpful. Getting the two day pass was a good value.

THE GUIDE WAS WONDERFUL!!! VIATOR THE PEOPLE WHO BOOKED THIS FOR ME MADE NUMEROUS MISTAKES!!!! I WILL NEVER BOOK A TOUR THROUGH VIATOR AGAIN. I HAD TO SPEND OVER 79 EUROS TO VIATOR COMPANY TO TRY AND FIX YOUR ERRORS. THE LOCAL COMPANY THAT YOU CONTRACTED FIXED EVERYTHING! VIATOR DID NOTHING. COULD NOT EVEN GET THROUGH YOUR TOLL FREE LINES!

The best value for paid price!!! This trip was the best way to get another perspective of Amsterdam. Boats met the indicated schedules. The three lines cover almost all Amsterdam areas.

Wonderful family pass. Van Gogh Museum is a must see. The canal bus is very easy to find. Many routes to take you anywhere in Amsterdam. I would recommend buying a time slot ticket for the Van Gogh Museum as the line is outrageously long even if you prebook a ticket. If not plan to wait in line for about 30-45 minutes.

The Van Gogh museum has such an amazing collection of works. Wonderful paintings.
The canal pass was useful though the timetable is limited.

It was a very good idea to book this tour, because we saved time at Van Gogh museum line. My advice for the tourists who want to buy this trip is to print the vouchers twice - because you get the entrance ticket to both attractions in exchange of the printed voucher (we didn't know and had to make a trip to the hotel for a second print). Van Gogh museum is absolutely fabulous, it definitely worths a visit (or more!). The boat tour is also very beautiful, but you depend too much on the weather and we had plenty of rain on the seond day. But it was a very nice tour of the city even so! So I highly recommend this tour. I love Amsterdam.

Hop on hop off canal tour is a great way to see Amsterdam. You would miss most of the city if you didn't use a boat. Quiet, relaxing, the only way to go. Not having to wait at the Van Gogh saves an hour in line. That alone was worth the ticket price.

We had a great time on the hop on hop off canal boat and went to the Van Gogh museum which although busy was well worth seeing. It was great having the ticket in advance as saved a lot of queuing.
