What's the best way to discover Amsterdam? With a Hop On / Hop Off sightseeing bus tour that makes twelve stops around the city. View Amsterdam's many neighborhoods and four major squares as your bus twists among the many narrow streets connected by bridges.

In the Jordaan District, you can find fine art, fashion and more. Once a workers' housing area, slum, and a Bohemian neighborhood, the district is now one of the most expensive and choicest districts in the city. It is home to Noorderkerk Church, and on Sundays, the adjacent Noordermarkt, the first farmers market in the Netherlands. It is also home to perhaps the most well-known "secret" hiding place, the Anne Frank House.

At Dam Square, you will find the National Monument, the Royal Palace, New Church (Nieuwe Kerk), De Bijenkorf (the Beehive) and Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum

In the Museum Quarter (old South District), you will find the Rijksmuseum, the country's national museum, as well as the Van Gogh Museum, which houses the largest collection of the artist's works. Nearby you can also find a diamond factory.

In addition, at one of the stops you will have the option to take a 60-minute canal cruise to see Amsterdam from a different perspective.

We enjoyed our Hop on Hop Off tour. The guides were very informative and humorous. It was great to be able to have 2 tours with one price using the bus and boat.

5 StarsAmsterdam City Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off Bus and May 24, 2017

Reviewer: Lillian More
This tour, combining bus and canal boat, provided an excellent overview of central Amsterdam, with the "hop-off" opportunity to select both locations and timing for places of personal interest. Tour was punctual and well-organized. Tip for improvement - Getting from the cruise dock to the first tour boarding spot was confusing. Include a map with street names to highlight the specific walking route.

4 StarsWell worth it December 14, 2016

Reviewer: K Monti
Hit all the majors sights in the city with excellent commentary along the way. Included both bus and canal which gave you a different perspective of the city Stop at central train station area was just a little too long unless that was your starting point.

Reviewer: marsha
this was a good way to see Amsterdam. We road the entire loop and then went back and got off at the sites we wanted to see. They provide headsets to get all the details that you are seeing. The boats provide a different look from the canals. would do this again.
