Know More about this tour

Amsterdam has so much more to offer than the hackneyed clichs of clogs, cheese and coffee shops; its a city that boasts Golden Age architecture, a postcard-perfect canal network and more culture than many other Northern European cities put together. The city screams to be explored with museums, art galleries and eclectic neighborhoods like Jordaan plus of course the historical Red light district.

Aboard a comfortable, open-top, double-decker bus, admire these top Amsterdam attractions, as well as some of the citys lesser-known gems such as Gassan Diamond Factory. Pass Vondelpark, the citys lovely central park, and perhaps hop off your bus at Western Market to visit the Anne frank house arguably Amsterdams most thought-provoking museum.

With your ticket, you can remain on the bus for an entire loop (roughly 2 hours) as you listen to the informative audio commentary, or you can hop on and off at any of the 11 stops around the city to see Amsterdams enchanting delights.

Want to see the city from the water, too? Upgrade to include a hop-on hop-off Canal cruise with your hop-on hop-off tour ticket, and cruise around Amsterdams romantic city canals.

    Definitely worth booking and I would do so again the next time I’m in Amsterdam. Download the sightseeing app to see the live map of the busses and your set.

    It's really mesmerizing. This is the best way to explore city in very economical price. I got discount from Viator so it's more value for money. best time to explore the city is either morning or evening before sunset.

    Nice, informative and quick tour - would recommend as a good start to the trip and for those who have a limited time to spend in Amsterdam.

    Great tour guide bus. Very easy to fine the pick up points. We got the bus and boat option. We really enjoyed it. The guides and drivers were all
    Lovely. Great value for money and it lasts for 24hrs once to you start your ticket. I would definitely recommend it

    Great tour for the first time visitor. It gave us a big overview of the city and we could plan different excursions.

    I was really looking forward to touring in Amsterdam, but instead, I found the hop-on-hop-off a waste of time. There was very little communication from the tour guide and mostly talked about the museums. The canal boat ride was also very boring. One of my friends feel asleep during the ride.

    I will say that the boats and busses were very clean and well maintained and the employees were professional and courteous. However, finding the designated stops, even using the app, wasn't always that easy. The other negative is that these tours only run from 11-5, so if you go to a museum and grab a bite afterward, you're using up a lot of time you've paid to use the hop-on-hop-off. We did the two day option thinking that we could use this as a mode of transportation to go from area to area. This is probably possible if you have a well-planned itinerary that factors in the hop-on-hop-off stops. For us, where we would meander down streets taking in the beauty of this city while strolling to our next planned stop, it was basically a waste of money. The walk to find the next closest hop-on-hop-off stop was essentially the same as just walking to the next planned location. My recommendation is to do a one-time guided tour of the canals (try it at night when the canals are illuminated) and skip the hop-on-hop-off off altogether. Use your legs to get you around or use the tram to get you to destinations that may be uncomfortable for some to walk. A bike is also another excellent way to get around the city and view the amazing architecture.

    Good experience, well presented , helpful staff and well organised based other hop on hop off bus experiences.

  • 25-Oct-2019

    If you're not on a time schedule, this is a good way of seeing the city. You can wait a long time for a bus or a boat, and if you have somewhere to be by a certain time, it would be faster to walk.

    This was my 3rd time using CitySightseeing as transport in Europe. Previously used bus in Budapest and Prague. Canal boat is a great way to get around and see city. Relax. Good value. Boat staff EXTREMELY pleasant and very helpful. Will not hesitate to use them on my next visit.
