The Canal Bus tour was possibly the highlight of our time in Amsterdam. Amsterdam deserves to be seen from the canals: it is a lovely city with a picturesque history and the information on the boat, as well as the ability to hop on and off, were priceless. The skip-the-line was well worth it: the line we skipped was quite long (around the block) and we were able to see the fantastic exhibits in this modern and well-laid out museum. Thank you.
LOVED this tour! A great way to see the Canal's of Amsterdam, learn a lot of history about the city, and enjoy a relaxing boat ride. I also really enjoyed the Van Gogh Museum, and being able to skip the long line of people waiting to buy tickets. Highly recommend this tour!!
Everything worked perfectly, we collected the tickets, missed the main queues at the van Gogh museum and spent the rest of the day on and off the canal buses. Great day would use service again.

You MUST get a pass before going to Amsterdam - you'll avoid a very long line and get right into the museum. I highly recommend getting there when it opens (10am). The canal cruise is great and stops at all the major stops.
This worked very well for me. I wish the same had happened in Venice.
all the arrangement were great and we enjoyed our tour thanks a lot
Fabulous Van Gough Museum.
Liked Canal Ride very much, but it was a little difficult to find spot to redeem voucher for tickets.
Excellent way to see the city and get to know your way around, used our pass to the fullest and loved the Van Gogh Museum
Fantastic way to see the sites. Book online before you arrive and beat the queue as they are massive.
Both the Museum and Hop-On Hop-Off Day Pass added greatly to our stay. Hop-on Hop-Off buses (road and canals) at all the Northern European cities are a fantastic find. Thanks for pointing us in that direction.
I highly recommend this option for people that don´t like to satnd in line.
Great way to visit Amsterdam and skip the line at the Van Gogh was perfect, you do not realize how long will take you to enter to the museum until you get there and see the waiting line !!!!

Great experience! So easy to find your way around Amsterdam-the canal bus stops at central locations throughout the city. The van Gogh museum was not crowded on the day we visited, so the skip-the-line aspect was moot; however, it would be an terrific advantage on busier days.
Although it was raining, still managed to see much of Amsterdam by canal. VanGogh ticket did what it was supposed to do with a minimal wait, avoiding a long line-up.
Went smoothly. The Hop On Hop Off Canal Boat Station is right in front of the Rijk--so very convenient. No problem using E-voucher. Pleasantly suprised the boats were not crowded in July.

This activity was very comprehensive, capturing the highlights of the city while allowing the traveler the flexibility to get on and off as he wishes.
the weather in amsterdam was heavy rain so the skip the line at the van gogh museum was perfect there was only 6 people in front of us compared to the ordinary line of 150 meters. the canal bus was great it took us everywhere we wanted to go and kept us out of the rain for an hour while we took a tour of the city. my only moan is about the que for the boats there was no orderly line people would try and push to the front to be first on the boat to get the best seat position. but apart from this minor problem it was a great day pass.
First of all, note that a "canal bus" is not a bus - it's a boat that wanders through the canals to and from your destinations - which is much, much more relaxing and enjoyable than a bus in any city. The ride is hassle free, it gets you close to many of your destinations (close enough to walk to all),and the Van Gogh museum was very interesting. Do this and the Bike Tour, and you have a good chance of seeing all that the city has to offer.
Great value! Worked exactly as expected. No wait in line at the Van Gogh Museum and the Canal Bus Hop-On-Off was easy to use and get around.
The canal tours are extensive and very interesting. It's a great way to get around (if time is not an issue) and the museum provided good value for the money. I recommend the headsets with information about the paintings. You can tour the museum at your own pace (and in the order you prefer) even when using these.
We were only in Amsterdam for a day and a half, and found the canal cruise very helpful in seeing the city. We hopped off at the various stops, and were able to hop back on the next boat very easily. The skip the line museum tickets are WELL worth it! We went on a Sat, and the line was around the block! We were able to walk right in thanks to these tickets. Great deal!
