Canal Cruise + Hop-On Hop-Off Amsterdam

Amsterdam has all these in abundance and is, quite rightly, known as one of Europe’s most iconic cities. Get to know this delightful, diverse capital from the comfort and security of one of our hop-on hop-off buses. There’s a reason why Amsterdam is known as the “Venice of the North”.

    This bus and boat combination ticket is the perfect way to discover Amsterdam. A great place to begin your bus tour is Amsterdam’s Centraal Station, which is more than just a transport hub – it’s an important landmark in the city. Even if you’re not arriving by train, this ornate 19th century building is well worth a look.

    Hop off and grab brunch in the Jordaan, a charming village bursting with bars, galleries, museums and markets. Culture lovers will be spoilt for choice. A visit to the Anne Frank House to learn about the sobering history of this young victim of the Holocaust is one of Amsterdam’s many absolute musts. Not too far away, you’ll find Body Worlds, a highly original, jaw-dropping exhibition. It showcases the human body through real cadavers, preserved and displayed so that you can get a close-up look at what your insides look like from the outside. It’s sure to get under your skin!

    Hop off at the Rijksmuseum, the national museum of the Netherlands. Immerse yourself in the country’s rich history. Admire astounding art from the nation’s finest painters such as Rembrandt and Van Gogh, alongside more modern photography exhibitions and interesting historical artefacts. Just a stone’s throw away is the Van Gogh Museum, where you can discover the life and work of the world-famous genius. For a change of pace, make for the red-light district, Amsterdam’s infamous underworld, to see the famous backlit windows and controversial coffee shops.

    To make your Amsterdam experience even more complete, take to the water and discover Amsterdam’s three principal waterways: the Keizersgracht, Prinsengracht, and Herengracht. Thispleasant hour-long canal cruise is included in your ticket. These canals form part of Amsterdam’s impressive 100km-long canal belt, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 17th century canal ring is lined with grand houses, constructed by wealthy spice merchants during the Dutch Golden Age.

    To top it all off, included in your tickets is a tour of the Gassan diamond factory. You can’t fail to be impressed by the sight of the diamond polishers hard at work making their rocks sparkle. Diamonds are forever and we hope this memory will last a lifetime.
