We loved this trip. One difficulty was finding the location to hand in our online receipt for the actual tickets to use. We wish Viator would provide that information. The other was that to get to the airport requires taking two public transit trolley/bus from downtown. We bought a round trip day pass to do this. Then we found out that we had paid for the same transport with Viator so we paid twice. In any case it was a great trip and a great day and way to see Amsterdam and the tulips.
Keukenhof Gardens highly recommended. Do understand that by booking this combination you are on your own, no guide or someone directing you.
We went to the Keukenhof Gardens when it was raining. There was NO line, so this voucher was really unnecessary. The voucher came in handy for the Van Gogh Museum though. There were long lines there. It was great to just go up to the group ticket window and bypass everyone waiting. Try the Canal Cruise at night, it's a whole different perspective.
Very much enjoyed the Gardens, Museum and the Canal Cruise. Hard to get them in in one day and would have liked to spent more time in the gardens and the museum.
The best thing was not having to stand in lines. For any museum in
Amsterdam the lines are ridiculous! The cruise was great , a nice introduction to Amsterdam, the gardens were just amazingly beautiful and of course Van Gogh was great. I recommend all these and getting the tickets ahead was much easier.
Although the deal states skip the queues, you don't! Almost everyone has pre-booked tickets so you still need to queue to gain admission to the museum and to get a space on the bus to Keukenhof. However, the buses were frequent so our wait was approximately 30 minutes. The queue for the museum took about 20 minutes to gain entrance, the sun was shining so it wasn't too much of a drag! The wait was worth it for both, Keukenhof is truly amazing.
Only gripe-' beat the queue' tickets, didn't beat the queue, because we still had to queue up for tickets with everyone else!!! Very good value though!
Lines were long but the museum was great. Highly recommend this tour.
Difficult to get to the Keukenhof and back to A'dam, I assumed wrong of course that the bus to the Keukenhof and the canal boat trip were close together not all the way across town. Keukenhof was beautiful, Rijksmuseum ws great and I could have used more time and the canal trip was wonderful.

Good combo package with Keukenhof and the Canal Cruise. However, it was the last weekend of the season at Keukenhof and the tulip fields were closed, much of the blooming was over. It was still a wonderful experience, beautiful displays and gardens. Loved the Amsterdam canal tour - very informative and leisurely. It made for a long day, but very pleasant and memorable.
The whole tour was beautifully put together
The only problem I had was you had to navigate the public transport. And let me make it clear it is only me that has a problem with this. I would have felt much more comfortable with an option of personal transport. Also, the address of the office across from Central Station was way too broad. I looked around for 45 minutes to have it be right in front of me.
The Keukenhof Gardens in April are amazing. Must see! Pavilion displays are very creative, too. The Canal Cruise was disappointing. The audio was hard to hear and very little said. Took another cruise in Paris with a live person narrating the tour and this was MUCH better. The Van Gogh museum is also terrific and skipping the lines is so helpful.
this ticket worked very well. however we did not realise we had to exchange our printed voucher for tickets before going to the gardens. Luckily I had printed off 2 copies so they kept 1 at the gardens and the other we exchanged for the boat trip in the centre of Amsterdam. At the gardens we gained immediate access to the gardens without having to queue. The gardens were really beautiful but far too busy and the queues for the toilets were ridiculous, so we left earlier than planned. I think they need to think about visitor numbers! The canal boat cruise was very nice, although we had to queue for a boat. It would be nice to be able to pre book a departure slot. All in all I would recommend the above and do book in advance for the gardens.
Very nice.. i lobved the canals tour and the museum , was confused about the gardens transportation but i found my way at end.. gardens are a must see if you are there in its opening season.
The lines to museum were too long. Voucher helped at van gage but we waited 70 minutes. We prefer e ticket. There is more than one place to redeem voucher for tickets. Leidesplein had a canal cruise ticket office. We had a great trip.
The canal tour was lovely and we enjoyed it very much. The Keukenhof Gardens were fabulous, worth every minute spent there. However, we got to the Van Gogh museum and with pre paid tickets the line wait was just shy of two hours....far too long.
Garden worth seeing, Line at museum very long in the afternoon.
