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.
Absolutely superb! The starting point was easy to find, began exactly on time, and was a pleasant informative and calm ride throughout the canals. It is great that the museum admissions are valid over a period of days and at all times when the museums are open. The Rijksmuseum, often crowded offers audio headsets for 5 Euros without a time limit for that day. Be sure to check it before leaving the rental desk, because not all of them have good sound quality.
This is a convenient way to plan three events at once. The voucher fir the Rijkmuseum allows immediate entrance and voucher for the Van Gogh must be traded in for a ticket, but it took less than five minutes to do that right outside the Van Gogh museum. These two museums are next to each other.
canal cruise plus tickets to 2 museums. the canal cruise was very good. the tickets for both museum has extended expiry dates so you don't have to do everything in one day.
the Rijksmuseum ticket can be used as it. the Van Gogh museum ticket must be exchanged at cashier before used. However there is a special line for the exchange so it's much shorter than the regular line. it's worth it!
We really enjoyed the museums. Wish we had taken more time to go through, so much to see.
Had a nice snack/lunch at Rijksmuseum.
The Canal Cruise was very nice, enjoyed all the information with provided earphones. Liked the enclosure but the overhead frame gets in the way for photos.
Would love to do the dinner cruise.
We chose not to listen to the commentary inside the boat but to sit at the back in the sunshine. It was a lovely relaxing trip and good value for money.
Great fun and no lining up. Picking up the tickets was easy, canal cruise lots of fun and the museums are first class.
Great introductory cruise to see the canals and highlight spots to go visit. The Rijksmuseum was fantastic. The Van Gogh museum was meh. The Starry Night isn and #39;t there nor is there a single piece of merchandise for it, but there were plenty of other Van Gogh paintings.
Enjoyed the freedom of independent museum tour. Viator's expedited ticket procurement very helpful.Looking forward to visiting Amsterdam in near future.
It was a beautiful day and a wonderful and relaxing cruise through the canals. Technically, the audio was not very good, but the beauty of the area, the rich architecture and the opportunity to see the city from a different perspective was great.
This canal trip was one of the highlights of our trip. We saw so much of Amsterdam and our audio was done very well, the couple was so interesting and made it fun. Also, we had a great pilot. We will recommend this tour to all we know who are going to Amsterdam. Excellent!!
