We went with the Blue Boat company and were not disappointed. We booked our tickets online but tickets can be purchased at the kiosk close to Leidseplein.
We did both the day and night cruises and both were lovely.
Winter rainy day. Taking the boat was good because it was warm and comfortable. But we waste 30 min when the ticket seller told us 10 min. Also, the boat was too slow because the captain talked too much in the mobile or with his...More
I was bitten by bedbugs in cabin 10033 on the Holland America Nieuw Amsterdam Western Caribbean Cruise from December 23-30, 2018. Cruise medical center offered no assistance unless I paid $95 for consultation fee. Soiled pillows and blanket insert had dried blood stains on them....More
I have been Amsterdam many times before but never done a canal boat. The experience was ok, nice to see it from a different prospective but not the wow of what many friends have said to have experienced.
The boat was clean and spacious enough. The audio guide worked ok although we didn’t use it much. Broad selection of languages including one suitable for kids.
Even though it was the middle of winter, the boat was very warm. Maybe to allow passengers to...More
On the Lovers Canal Cruise it was nice and relaxing. Audio was in multiple languages which was great. The guide was educational. Family friendly or couples can enjoy this cruise. Enough space to fit our family of 5 at one table setting which is a...More
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll
find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
There are multiple canal cruise companies and various pick up locations which include Anne Frank House, Riks Museum and Central Station. During peak season you may want to reserve a time if you have a firm schedule.
Hi everyone, has anyone else been totally and utterly ripped off by the I AMSTERDAM City Card? We arrived on 14/12/16 in Schippol and were told at the I Amsterdam shop/office that the card included transport to and from Airport. It does not. We were also told it included admission to Amsterdams Museums... It really does not... Some offer a discount, we were told that at this time of year that the Canal Cruises offer a free Cruise to Card Holders of the Light Festival Show.... They do not. All...More

Hi Olwen, Well untruthful selling is always wrong, but both facts are clearly on their website. Transport would solely be one slow bus connection from GVB (not the train) and the number of museums etc. is significant but possibly still excluded a few which you expected-without-research. We have an overview of all options here https:/…Overview.Of.Discount.Cards.html hence hope future travellers will do the full maths and then decide whether a card pays off for them or not... All...More

Exploring different transportation options (5 Replies)
I really tried on my own but I need your help once more. These are the transportation options that I found. OB-chipkaart (7.50E to buy and 1.20E for each bus or tram ride). I think you create an account and prepay a certain amount. Is that right? Strippenkaart (15 for 6.50E, some rides require multiple strips). GVB ticket for unlimited use: 48 hours 11.50E 72 hours 15.50E Is this correct and current information? Which would you suggest for a three day visit? Do buses or trams...More

Hi there, Strippenkaart died many years back, and OV Chipcard generally does not make sense. GVB multiday card might fit for most of your plans. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g55616… Carlton has many tram halts near and also Rokin metro station within 8-10 mins walk. <Erik> & [Sandya]
