Great way to get an overview of the city. Well done with a good narration. I told my gets to put my ashes on a DoubleDecker bus because we use them at the beginning of all our trips!

A very good way to see the city. Interesting commentary via headphones. You are able to select your language. We used the bus the first day then the canal boat on the next day, although the commentary overlaps somewhat, you see things from a different angle when on the boat.

Enjoyed using the hop on and off Bus . Also included was a 2 hour canal boat thru the canals really enjoyed this. Also you could use the canal boat as hop on and off to get around. It took us to all the major points of interest. We didn't have to waste time looking for piaces we wanted to go.

We have done 3 different Hop On and Hop Off tours in three different cities. Amsterdam was great, there are two canal tours and one bus tour. We did all three and highly recommend this course which provides a comprehensive overview of the city.

Good tour to get a great overview of the city and to scout out things you wish to visit. I would skip the river cruise. I didn't see much value in it

We always do the hop-on hop-off bus tours around the world. This maintained the standard and the canal tours was a special attraction not to be missed. A beautiful city and a great way to see it.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

This was an incredible way to see Amsterdam and to learn about the city through the easy to access on board recordings as well as the on board guides. The locations to hop on or off of both the buses and the boats were easy to find. Because the tickets are good for 24 hours, the buses and boats made getting around very convenient. We have used these buses in other cities in both Europe and the U.S. and they continue to make improvements. We will definitely continue to use them.

We loved the Hop On Hop Off bus and canal boat. It gave us a wonderful view of the city and where to decide to stop and visit.

Lovely tour. Make sure you pay attention to stops as they are not allowed to post signs for them but give you a map showing where they are. Enjoyed the canal portion.
