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.

The canal ride was informative and relaxing. We didn't have enough time to thoroughly enjoy the museu, but enjoyed what we did see.
Worth the price but you don't skip the line completely. You just get in a shorter line.
This was well worth taking in. The boat pick up drop off timing was good and Van Gogh Museum was really awesome!
Great fun riding the boats along with the narration of sights and history and skipping the line at the museum saves time and energy
Wonderful. A little confusing about which line to use at Van Gogh museum. For Ann Frank house have to make online reservations to see it between 9 and 3 we were told that if we couldn't do that to show up around 6, which is what we did and only had to stand in line for about 30minutes. Also boat reverses course at one of the stops which you need to plan around. It's shown on the map but you have to look for it and plan around it. It was a wonderful experience!!
Loved the hop on hop off canal boats. They were very conveniently located and a great way to see the city. We liked the Riks Museum much better than the Van Gogh Museum.
A great way to see Amsterdam! The stops were easy to find and the Skip the line to the van gogh Museum was well worth it.
A wonderful excursion inAmsterdam.
It was better than expected. Amsterdam hotel is perfectly located and the people is so nice.
Berlin hotel was ....ok.
Excellent, nice to have the freedom to hop on and off whenever you like. Very good value
Was glad I purchased tickets on line and went directly to pick up tickets and be assigned a set time to visit. The museum is one of the finest I have visited.

The museum was great but we didn't have time to take advantage of the bus tour.
Great way to see Amsterdam and learn about the city. Pick up office is right outside the train station.
I did this in January, so there were no lines...which I understand to be completely different in the summer, making the presale tickets even more valuable. This is a quick and easy tour of the city. I knew nothing about Van Gogh and learned a lot get the audio tour. I also went to the Rijks museum again, get the audio tour. Then I took the 90 minute canal tour which gave a nice flavor of the city while I slowly worked through my jet lag.
great trip, wish we had more time to spend before the boat sailed
It was great! We loved the Canal Bus Tour. It was so easy to stay at each stop and find a Canal Bus soon to go to the next stop. The Boat Guides were nice and very informative
Excellent tour. Compact and great overview. uide was amazing and very knowledgable. Would highly recommend it.
The tour went exceptionally well from the check in and the boats and drivers.Having the prepaid Van Gogh museum voucher/ticket was most helpful. I went on both the green and orange lines and enjoyed every minute.
Van Gogh museum very interesting. Keep in mind skip the line just means skip the ticket line for ticket purchase. You still have to wait in the fairly long line to get in about 35 minutes for us_.
Canal bus is ok, but fairly minimal narration. Our hotel proprieter said the blue boats were better for a canal tour.
