Very easy to pick-up the pass and ticket for the Van Gogh Museum. The hop on/hop off canal bus was great, saved our feet a lot of walking.
The hop-on hop-off Day pass on the Canal Bus is a great option. I wish we had taken better advantage of it. You will really appreciate the serene method of traffic-free travel, avoiding the careening bicycles on the streets. If we had known how much we would enjoy the canal boats, we would have allocated more time to ride them. The Van Gogh Museum is very nice and well worth visiting. This combination was probably the best value of all the tours we experienced.
This is the way to do it. It might seem touristy but it's a great way to got to know the city layout and a great price for getting all around Amsterdam. Make sure to also book at least one night tour. The lights on the water at night are magnificent!
This was just a fabulous experience! Very easy to get on and off and the views of the city were great!
Relieved to avoid lines. Enjoyed canal bus and took it for entire course to see AMS from another view.
This was a great way to see Amsterdam. We were easily able to get off and go see different sights like the Van Gogh Museum.

It's a great way to see Amsterdam. It was only fior a day but covered a lot of places. Highly recommended. I will do it all over again but I will at least have 2 days.
A really good way to get around and see the sights. If you're a fan of Van Gogh's work it is well worth having the pass. The line was several hundred metres long when we arrived and it was great to be able to walk up to the "skip the queue" queue which was only 5 metres long.
Firstly - Definitely recommend buying the Van Gogh Museum Prepaid Ticket - we got to skip a line of about 100 people to get in because we planned ahead!!
Secondly - the Canal bus Hop On Hop Off is a great idea. It gets you around to so many places with ease but is also a beautiful way to see the city from the canals.
easy and skipped the lines. I wished I had also signed up for the Anne Frank House which had a huge line.
The Skip the Line: Van Gogh Museum was so worth it. It saved us from an hour plus line up. We got in within 5 minutes of our arrival. The Hop-On Hop-Off 48 hour pass worked out well and we enjoyed all three lines. Dan S from Canada

Great way to see the city and avoid the queues with the 'skip the line' option. 3 different 'cruise lines' to get the most out of seeing the sites. Definitely recommended
The canal bus hop on hop off day pass was the best way to see Amsterdam without walking everywhere. We "cruised" all the canals, got off where we wanted, and reboarded another canal bus. I am so glad we included the skip the line Van Gogh museum pass. We would still be standing in line! What a savings of time.
Terrific way to get an overview of the city by boat and then have the opportunity to stop off at many interesting sights in the city. Am truly sorry we were only able to spend one day in Amsterdam. So much to see. Will look for and utilize Viatour where ever possible in the future.

Excellent tour, and skip the line ticket greatly appreciated in the high tourist season. Just one suggestion: information and directions re exchanging voucher for tickets should be more detailed. We spent too much time trying to find the nearest place to do this.
The Canal Bus Hop On Hop Off was great. It was a nice way to get around the city and it was also fantastic to just sit and enjoy the ride. If I return to Amsterdam in the future I will be riding the Canal Bus again.
Fantastic, very long line outside museum but we went in right away with no waiting at all.
canel trip well worth it, better than the Hop on hop off Bus I think.
I would recommend this highly! The lines were very long and we were able to avoid them. The canal "bus" drops you in all the key places. It is a beautiful way to see the city as well.
Excellent. Canal Bus is #1 in our books. Seating configuration and open top make for a fantastic experience.
This was terrific. Was a rainy day but the tour boats are all covered. had plenty of time to see all 3 routes. The skip the line ticket at the Van Gogh saved lots of time. no wait.
it worked and we skipped the line. The Van Gogh is not to be missed on your visit to Amsterdam.
Van Gogh is one of my favorites and I thought I knew what to expect but I was amazed by the number of pieces and the great job they did to show the growth in his talent.

Perfect - why no one else books in advance is crazy! This was the perfect way to see Amsterdam and get to and from the museum district.
