Booked on a rainy day to see Amsterdam by canal cruise. Couldn't see out the windows because they were so steamed up. As it is also a hop on and hop off cruise, passengers using it as transport are inconsiderate and loud when the speakers...More

Do not buy Hop on Hop off from a company called Isangoo. They send vouchers, not the tickets, but you then have to go to their office and redeem these vouchers for tickets. Really Not convenient. Better off just buying tickets on the bus.More

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping

Avoid the hoho bus, I would take public transport instead. On busses and trams you can take your pram onboard without having to fold it up so your little one can stay in (given that there is enough space on the bus/tram)
