Itinerary

There are two options for your tour:

Amsterdam City Hop-On Hop-Off Tour (Bus and Boat)
Amsterdam City Hop-On Hop-Off Tour (Bus only)

Amsterdam City Hop-On Hop-Off Tour (Bus and Boat):
This option combines a hop-on hop-off bus service with a canal cruise. On the double-decker bus tour there is one route and nine convenient stops. Your ticket is valid for 24 hours and you can jump on and off the vehicle at will to see the sights or go shopping. Or stay on the bus and listen to the informative audio-guide, available in 16 languages.

The hop-on hop-off bus service runs every 45 minutes between 1000h (10:00am) and 1700h (5:00pm).

The full route takes 2 hours and 30 minutes to complete and includes the following stops.

1. Central Station: A magnificent building and one of the main railway hubs of the Netherlands.

2. Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal: A street with famous buildings such as the Royal Palace of Amsterdam, the Nieuwekerk, the Amsterdam Museum and the former main post office, now a smart shopping center called the Magna Plaza.

3. Westerkerk: This 17th century church has the highest church tower in Amsterdam. Westerkerk is close to the Anne Frank House and Anne frequently mentioned the chiming of the church clock in her famous Diary. Several renowned artists, including Rembrandt, are buried here.

4. Leidseplein: One of Amsterdam's popular nightspots, with theaters, lots of cafes, restaurants, and cinemas. Street musicians, jugglers, and fire-eaters make the square a lively place, especially on summer evenings!

5. Museumplein: Stop here for three of Amsterdam’s most important museums: the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art and the Van Gogh Museum. This stop is also close to the splendid Concertgebouw.

6. Stadhouderskade/De Pijp: Jump off here for Albert Cuypmarket, The Netherlands’ busiest market, selling everything from vegetables, fruit and fish to clothing and cameras. Lager drinkers should visit the Heineken Experience, located in an old brewery. Hungry? This vibrant multi-cultural district is full of fantastic ethnic restaurants, coffee shops and bars.

7. Waterlooplein: Stop here for the huge Waterlooplein Flea market, the Rembrandt House (showcasing Rembrandt’s life and work), the Hermitage (displaying treasures from St Petersburg) and the Artis Zoo.

8. Muntplein: Get off at this stop to enjoy the cafes and street life of Rembrandt Square, as well as the Flower Market, the Allard Pierson Museum, (the archaeological museum), the upscale shops of Kalverstraat and the Amsterdam Dungeon.

9. Damrak: This is the stop for the National Monument (the World War II Memorial) and Madame Tussauds. It is also close to Amsterdam’s famous Red Light District and the Royal Palace.

Your canal cruise leaves from the Damrak. It takes 1 hour and 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 combi-tour at your own 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.
