This tour was everything it says it's going to be and more. We had a wonderful experience at the museum even though Van Gough isn't my favorite artist you learn so much about his life through his art. The Hop-On Hop-Off pass is the way to go in Amsterdam. We took atleast 3-4 canal rides and it was a nice relaxing way to get around town and see more of the citiy. Highly recommend getting this canal pass when in town.

The Van Gogh Museum was one of the best we have experienced! Since it is dedicated to just the one artist and a few of his contemporaries you see the progression of his artwork from beginning to end. We moved through at a leisurely pace and saw everything in just a few hours. The canal bus is the way to go for easy movement around the city.

Museum was really good - suggest you get an audio guide to enhance the experience. Hop on hop off canal bus was great especially as weather was good. A lovely way to see the city and easy to find stops etc.

The canal buses were on time and stopped at all the highlights in the city. The captains were personable and provided great commentary during the rides. The skip the line voucher was invaluable as the line to get tickets was so long we wouldn't have had time for anything else that day. So worht the money.

Worth the price but you don't skip the line completely. You just get in a shorter line.
