We have done Hop On Hop Off busses before but this was our first Hop On Hop Off boat tour. It was wonderful. You get views from the canal that you can get no other way. The commentary was great. We went around twice and got off to enjoy some of the features of the city. The boat was very comfortable with plenty of room. The roof opened and closed depending on the weather which was a definite plus. I highly recommend that you take this tour. Thumbs up for sure!!

This is a great way to get around Amsterdam and avoid the bike traffic. Rides were smooth and relaxing. Loops were frequent and got you to the landmark places in Amsterdam.

Great way to see the different sites.

Not only was this tour educational, we were able to save money by using our hop-on hop-off pass, since it was valid for 24 hours. Instead of buying train tickets, we used the boat as our transportation.

Lovely experience. We took the tour in December, at night. There were Christmas lights in all the canals. It was magical.

Sooooo worthwhile we arrived at Amsterdam Centraal, walked across the street and found the tour boat, I had e-tickets as I bought our tickets on line, we were received by a jovial person in the kiosk, who exchanged our ticket for another one, he gave us further info about how this worked, the captain was another very friendly person who made sure we got on board safely.......the tour was amazing, we saw more of Amsterdam then we had dreamt of, we got off at the Rijksmuseum, and other stops, no problems getting back on except having to wait for the next boat, which did not matter as there was lots to see just hanging around the dock we really got a sense of the outlay of the city I would highly recommend your wonderful services, well worth every penny!

Boat was very comfortable. I particularly enjoyed open-top as Day was warm and pleasant. Would there be any chance of considering a coffee bar/soft drinks ? Unfortunately not everybody was interested in listening to commentary and so was difficult to hear everything being said. How about individual headsets ? In spite of this the trip was very enjoyable and being able to use it on Day 2 was also great. Thank you.

Convenient and plenty of boats to get on/off with. Great way to see all the sights from the river while also using it for transportation to the major attractions. You can use this as your taxi plus see the river all for cheaper than a 1-hour river cruise typically costs. Most of the stops are very convenient to the locations. Would definitely recommend this to anyone. Look at the map before going so you can get a feel for the stops and which side of the river the boat goes on. It runs in a couple different circuits clockwise and counterclockwise so you just need to know which side of the river to go depending on which direction you're headed.

Had a great time. The canal boats are very accessible.

Easy to use and great tour guides. Makes seeing the beautiful homes from the canals a pleasure, with interesting comments about who lives in the homes and the history. Easy to hop off at all the spots and enjoy the attractions in a leisurely way...

Well worth experiencing! But my advise is to book the hop-on hop-off tours when you are in city and ready to use them. They will never run out of tickets and we purchased too many days throughout Europe that we didnʻt use. Also many companies doing same thing and you can pick the most covenient docking stations...
