The usual high standard for Hop-On tours consistent around the world. Great way to get the lay of the land in a new city and pick places to explore further.

A great tour! Very fun and very informative and helpful to get around and see everything the city has to offer! The bus and canal tour combo is definitely worth it! Only recommendation is to put up signs of where the bus picks you up. Got a tad confusing for some locations. But over amazing!

We enjoyed the hop on bus, but the canal boat was the best. Their are 12 stops, earphones to listen, and a relaxing way to see the quiet beauty of the Amsterdam Canals. Only way to see a city is on these buses. I recommend them very much besides taking great photo's, you meet and chat will all different types of people.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

Always the best way to see the city at your own pace. You choose the loops you want to go to. Amsterdam is so small that you can see most of the highlights in two days. Worth it to get to see the whole city!

Big Red Buses are the ONLY way to get around in a foreign city. And the Amsterdam tour was great!

This tour is amazing. They stop at almost all the landmarks in Amsterdam. Our family enjoyed this tour both by land and by cruise. The experience of passing through the bridges and lovely canals is unforgettable. Anne Frank House is definitely worth visiting despite the long line.

Great value! You can get around to the major landmarks several times a day if need be as there are less than a dozen stops but all put you close distance to anything Amsterdam. Enjoy!
