Myself and a friend bought a day ticket. We we're doing a mini cruise of a dfds deal. And on board the tickets were €19 but at the canal kiosk they're €22. There are three different lines all taking you on different routes around Amsterdam. You can hop on and off at any time and hop on a different coloured... More

Boat glass was dirty and it was difficult to see out clearly. There are no separate queue for people who have pre-paid tickets and thus have boarding passes even though it was advertised that we would bypass ticket queues. We still have to queue together with people who are buying tickets and the queue is so long because of this.

Enjoyed the hop off hop on Canal ride. Spent a good part of the day riding around and enjoying the comments and seeing the sights in Amsterdam.

Was a very nice canal tour where you could choose which route you wanted to follow. Then you could get on and off at the various stops along the way. A running commentary informed you of interesting bits of information and sights along the way. The stops were convenient and easy to find. I used this as my primary means... More

I've done 2 other cruises in Amsterdam but found the Canal hopper that was limited to 12 people was simply the best experience I've had. Our guide was super interesting and explained a lot about Amsterdam that I didn't even know after living here 1 year. If you have friends visiting Amsterdam I strongly recommend you book the Canal Hopper... More

We were in Amsterdam for a day and wanted to see certain places in a short period of time and get the "feel" of the city. Booked the Canal company nl before we went: arriving at Amsterdam Centraal station, we crossed the canal, exchanged our e-ticket for "proper" tickets, was assisted by a very helpful member of the company's staff...

Better value for money than other boat trips, but make sure to book it online as this saves significantly if you're with a family/group (which I find a bit fishy). Still, nice routes, passing almost all main attractions of Amsterdam as well as less popular yet wonderful parts of this amazing city. If you enjoy a museum or park in... More

From ticket booking to leaving Amsterdam, the highlight had to be the ease of the Canal company tours. The staff were courteous on every trip we made. We used the hop on, hop off facility to the max. The tours were very good and the guides on the tape were informative and also multi lingual so it was good for... More

It was rainy so canal trou was the best solution. boat moves slowly and there is a good chance to see the city having the roof :) We did 2 routs: red and green. Drivers told the passengers interesting fact about the city and channels additionally to the audio-guide. It would be great to have Russian audio-guide
