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 or 48 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.

Your 1 hour canal cruise leaves from the Damrak. It takes you along the bustling waterways. Canals have been the main transport system of Amsterdam since the 17th century. Today they provide an excellent way to see the city. Amsterdammers take great trouble to keep their waterways clean, so cruising is real pleasure.

As you cruise, the city will reveal its treasures. You will see lovely churches and the fine merchants’ houses built in Amsterdam’s Golden Age (1585-1672). Tall, narrow – often only 30ft (9 meters) wide – these canal-side houses have big narrow windows, decorative gables and outside pulleys to lift heavy objects to the upper floors.

You can end your the tour as per your convenience.

Amsterdam City Hop-On Hop-Off Tour (Bus only):
This option is the same as the one described above but without the canal cruise. You can choose to leave the hop-on-hop-off bus tour whenever you wish.
