Watch out, there are some dodgy boat drivers of the Green Hop On Hop Off cabal boats! Ours drove the boat from the museums up to central station giving us a constant commentary that was racist, homophobic and thoroughly offensive. He humiliated people on the boat or ones we passed, taunted the passengers by playing ‘withholding information’ games, made crass stereotypical jokes about the nationality of the passengers, and commented on every couple we passed as if they were tinder dates. We heard about his Ex wife, his hatred for driving the boats... And he boasted that he was speeding, and not following the right route, as be bashed us into bridges and walls! All we wanted was a peaceful, pretty and informative trip back up to our hotel area!

Everything you would expect from this kind of a provider. There are pluses (you get around easily on the canals with some commentary) and minuses (you have to wait for the next boat) but overall well worth it.

We did the bus and the boat which gave us lots of options. We started with the bus to get an idea of where things were then we did the boat and saw it from a different view.

Rather than take a excursion of the canals we chose to ride the Hop-On-Hop-Off boat as it motored through a two-hour rotation of stops on the canals. Many people got on and off, but we rode the round trip and photographed the canals, houseboats and buildings. Tips for photographers: try to sit outside to have more flexibility; travel light (my DSRL with a zoom lens was sufficient); expect light and dark contrast and editing after returning home; boat is in motion so be quick with taking shots; shoot more than you think you need.

No smartphone application, so vessels are difficult to track (via crappy web site) Closes earlier then specified. From National museum last ship actually leaves at 17:10 much earlier then specified 19:00 so I missed one which messed up my plans. Fun fact - nobody ever checked my tickets.

Dear GrimRaz0r, Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. During winter time we don't cruise until 7pm so I'm curious where you read this. Could you please send this information to us via online@stromma.nl? It would help us a lot! Hope you still had a good time in Amsterdam. Kind regards, Stromma Netherlands
