Bought 3 adult tickets at €22 each and promptly got on green line and cruised around. Scenery is lovely and taped guide ok and certainly gives overview of city. It is however annoying to stop for 20mins plus at one stop. We disembarked at central station and as we had purchased a day ticket thought we would use again to... More

I bought the canal bus ticket and hopped on Green line at Rijkmeseum at 10:20 on Aug. 21, the blonde lady captain gave me the best experience in this country. She shared the stories along the way, about the buildings and history, even stopped shortly at famous spots for us to take photos. She also cared about the nationality of... More

The 'Hop on Hop off' canal boats are a great way to see the city. The boats were comfortable, easy to access and leave, all but one of the several boats I used had a functioning WC. They ran to time. The recorded commentary was interesting and some of the captains added further information. My only criticism is that some... More

This is a really good fun evening, the staff are great and the cocktails were lovely... but it would have been nice to have a few more of them! However the wine was flowing so that was fine for me, but not so great for my friend who doesn't drink wine. The details for the cruise don't say anything about... More

If you're looking for a fun activity to do with your kids, or if you just love pizza the Pizza cruise is a MUST in Amsterdam. Excellent value for money: You start of with some light snacks and drinks for the first 45 minutes, After that the pizza's are delivered to the boat at a quick stop. During the entire... More

We loved the Canal Company boats. We purchased the hop on hop off 2 day ticket. The first day we used the green and orange routes to get us to attractions. We went to Anne Frank House and the Heineken Experience. Very easy to get to attractions on the canal boats. The second day we rode the entire red route.... More

We didn't have time for a hop on hop off and just wanted a guided tour with drop-off at the same place as the pick-up. So we opted for the 3pm cruise that was billed as 75 minutes but was more like 90. We paid 37 Euros for two of us and what a marvelous tour of the canals we... More

We decided that we really didn't want to do one of the large boat tours of Amsterdam's canals, we wanted something smaller and more personal. We discovered the Eco Tours Hopper boats - electric boats that take up to 12 people. The boats depart from the Damrak, Pier 6, near the Central Station and the tour lasts about 75 minutes.... More

After doing lots of walking around Amsterdam this was a good way to see the city in a different way. Had 3 different drivers. One was excellent. She added her own personal commentary which was entertaining. One was quite brusque with her passengers. However, if you are time poor I suggest that a one hour canal tour is all you... More
