You can get on or off as often as you like at the 21 centrally located stops throughout the city (Damrak, Rembrandt Square, Heineken Experience, Museum Square, Leidse Square, Anne Frank House).

Could have used better "stop" signage. No indication of where the bus was going to stop could be found.

Have taken numerous Hop On Hop Off tours in cities throughout the world. There was nothing to commend this service in Amsterdam. Staff was unprofessional. Recorded sightseeing info was minimal and staff frequently talked over recorded sound to hype selling tickets to some paid attraction. Absolutely no Hop On Hop Off signage at any of the scheduled stops. Route not particularly interesting. Can't think of anything positive about the experience, other than I was able to stay off my feet for a while.

My hubby and I do the hop on/hop tour in every city that we visit. It gives us a good feel of the city and we decide from then on what to visit next. It is also a great way to get to know the city. We bought the combined tickets bus/boat tour at a reasonable price at the Lovers kiosk (recommended by our hotel). I must admit that the whole tour isn't very long, but we always do a complete tour then use it as transportation. The only hiccup is the stop to visit the Garran Diamond tour, if you are not interested, you stay in the bus and wait (maybe 15 to 20 minutes).

We did the bus, the boat and the walking tour. Everyone of these combined gives you different information about the city.

Expencive.
If you have to change boat to get where you want... Be aware that the next boat can be full.
Then you have to wait for the next boat. Another 45 minutes or hour to wait. And you dont know if there is room there either.

Service was late, route map was out of date, audio gave little or no information about the city history or sights other than other fee paying attractions, staff were rude, hop on bus stops weren't sign posted....very poor experience and a waste of money.
