We have done Hop On Hop Off busses before but this was our first Hop On Hop Off boat tour. It was wonderful. You get views from the canal that you can get no other way. The commentary was great. We went around twice and got off to enjoy some of the features of the city. The boat was very comfortable with plenty of room. The roof opened and closed depending on the weather which was a definite plus. I highly recommend that you take this tour. Thumbs up for sure!!

This is a great way to get around Amsterdam and avoid the bike traffic. Rides were smooth and relaxing. Loops were frequent and got you to the landmark places in Amsterdam.

Great way to see the different sites.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2018

Not only was this tour educational, we were able to save money by using our hop-on hop-off pass, since it was valid for 24 hours. Instead of buying train tickets, we used the boat as our transportation.

Lovely experience. We took the tour in December, at night. There were Christmas lights in all the canals. It was magical.

Sooooo worthwhile we arrived at Amsterdam Centraal, walked across the street and found the tour boat, I had e-tickets as I bought our tickets on line, we were received by a jovial person in the kiosk, who exchanged our ticket for another one, he gave us further info about how this worked, the captain was another very friendly person who made sure we got on board safely.......the tour was amazing, we saw more of Amsterdam then we had dreamt of, we got off at the Rijksmuseum, and other stops, no problems getting back on except having to wait for the next boat, which did not matter as there was lots to see just hanging around the dock we really got a sense of the outlay of the city I would highly recommend your wonderful services, well worth every penny!
