Great and convenient way to see Amsterdam

The river cruise was relaxing and well presented. The staff were very polite. We have seen most of the notable landmarks in Amsterdam near the river.

Simona from our hop on hop off tour of Amsterdam was amazingly helpful in sorting out some tickets for us to a museum. Very appreciative. Our kids LOVED the NEMO museum. Thanks! Both the bus and canal tours were a fantastic way to see the city from a different level and save the legs of our littlest travellers.

Dear chellybaby, Sorry to read about the windows steaming up. The weather in Amsterdam can be tricky at sometimes. But this shouldn't spoil your experience on our bus, so my apologies for that. Let me know if you are even back in Amsterdam again, you can send me a message here. Kind regards, Juliën More

In town for a convention for a couple of days , took the bus to get a quick orientation of the city. Modern vehicles, helpful staff , and a great way to get an overview of the city in a fairly short time - highly recommended !

Had a day trip in Amsterdam but no chance to look at reviews for your companies but having used this sort of company before chose to go with the hop on hop off tour featuring a bus and boat combination.

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
