Amsterdam must be seen by water. This was a great tour!
Great value, that was definitely cheaper than buying those 3 activities separately in town. The booth to claim the tickets themselves was easy to find and process was quick and straight forward when I arrived. The canal cruise was great with a pre-recorded description in the language of your choice sounds touristy but that was clear, concise and all it needed to be. The boat's captain was kind enough to have all the kids on board steer the ship for a little while when we got onto the wider part in the harbour. One toilet is available on board and it was clean. Windows were very clear so didn't interfere too much for pictures and there is an open air portion at back of the ship.
Ticket to Rijksmuseum is given to you right away from the booth on the canal side while the one for Van Gogh museum is actually a voucher which you go exchange at the ticket office at the Van Gogh museum itself.
The canal cruise was interesting and enjoyable. The headsets used allow you to hear an explanation of the sights in English. explanations somehwhat cheesey However, the head sets do not block the noise from other travelers. The purchase of the ticket to the Van Gogh museum does not state that after the purchase you must reserve a time and receive a valid ticket to the Van Gogh museum. Purchasing the cruise with both museums included is a good value for the money. The package allows you to visit museums on other days from when you took the cruise. This is extremely beneficial as I do not believe you could visit both museums and take the cruise in one day and feel like you saw what you wanted.
The canal trip was delightful. The head sets allow you to listen to explanations in English, but they do not block noises from other passengers. The museum passes are good for days other than the day of the canal cruise. This is very helpful, as I do not believe you could do both museums and the cruise in one day. I was not aware that once you purchased this tour, you still had to make reservations to see the Van Gogh museum. This was not difficult, but could have been in the summer months. Both museums were outstanding.
The Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum are must visit places in Amsterdam.
Great way to see some canals and the incredible Rijksmuseum. Only issue we had was that this was only a voucher for the Van Gogh museum, so we still had to wait in a long line to get the actual ticket.
This is a great way to see all of Amsterdam! Highly recommend it!
Very good and flexible on schedule, worth to take!
