    Overview

    Take this flexible tour by bus and boat and discover the delightful Amsterdam. This great-value package includes a hop-on hop-off bus service and choice of canal cruise enabling you to see the city from many different angles.

    The double-decker bus service runs every 45 minutes and has nine great stops close to the main attractions. Your ticket is valid for 24 hours and you can hop on and off as often as you like. While on the bus you will be entertained by a fascinating audio commentary, available in 16 languages.

    Art lovers can alight at Museumplein to visit the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art or the Van Albert Cuypmarket (stop at Stadhouderskade), or at the huge flea market at Waterlooplein. History buffs can stop at Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal for the 17th century Royal Palace and the 15th century Nieuwekerk.

    On canal cruise, you can enjoy an enchanting hour on the city’s celebrated canals. You’ll see barges, bridges and the wonderful waterfront buildings with their pulleys and decorated gables.

    If you wish to spend more time at the museums, markets or other attractions you can choose the option without the canal cruise.
