Climb aboard a distinctive City Sightseeing bus at Amsterdam Central Station and listen to audio commentary. Opt to remain on the bus for the entire loop, or disembark whenever an attraction captures your attention.

Jump off at top Amsterdam attractions such as Dam Square, Science Center NEMO, and De Gooyer Windmill. When you want to rejoin the tour, simply visit a stop and board the next bus, which departs every 15-25 minutes, depending on the season.

If you’ve upgraded to include a hop-on hop-off boat tour, you’ll be able to see the city from a completely different perspective. Head to the designated meeting point at your chosen time to further your exploration of Amsterdam.

Decent city tour

The city sightseeing tour was decent. It was as one would image for a city tour. It’s a little difficult to find the stops as the city won’t allow them to label them(?). It was a good way to get the layout of the land.More

Best way to see Amsterdam!

We spent two days in Amsterdam at the end of a cruise, and were able to see MANY sights using this Hop-On Hop-Off tour with the boat option. The boat option was a great addition. Plenty of opportunities for pictures, etc. Very reasonably priced.

I was not impressed with the boat tour from the hop-on-hop-off group but there really isn't much to say about these tours. They just go down the canals wth house boats on all sides. Every once in a while you pass something... More
