Great way to learn about Amsterdam and enjoy the relaxing cruise round the canals. As the boats are covered the weather does not really matter

There are three routes on the Canal Bus tour and we got on the green route and did almost all of the Blue route - this took us well over 2 hours so you would need to factor in a large amount of the day if you wanted to get round all 3 routes (there is also a Red route). The large bateauxs are a great way of getting around the City and seeing more than you would on foot. We got on at Anne Frank's museum and left at the Albert Cuypmarkt and enjoyed the float in between. The boats don't have the greatest amount of commentary so you are largely able to enjoy the view uninterrupted, but it's not a tour - it's a bus - so the clue is in the name. We felt it was good value for money for what we achieved in our 24 hour pass. Our blue route driver was fairly comical and bashed into most of the moorings (even smashing his own glass on one particularly violent arrival) but for the most part it was a very pleasant way to spend the morning cruising around.

This does exactly what it says - you get a night time boat tour of the city with pizza delivered to your table half way round, an ice cream for dessert and drinks on tap (beer and wine really were available on request). It isn't gourmet - but that's obvious and in a city as expensive as Amsterdam seems to be this felt like very good value. The guide was also definitely additive - she didn't go on all the time but what she told us was interesting and amusing. Highly recommended for a family trip - all three generations enjoyed it.

It is a fun way to see the sights and experience Amsterdam by boat. Lots to see merchants houses with their beautiful and distinct architectures, boat houses, and just how Amsterdam was before and at present. It also passes museums, churches, and the old harbor.

After our visit to Annas Frank museum, we bought the day ticket with canal cruise and took the green line to Voldenpark. We walked in Voldenpark for a long time, took pictures in I Amsterdam and had lunch at Hard Rock Cafe. We went to get the blue line at aproximately 16:10 pm, we asked the guy in tickets when is the next one and he said in 35 minutes. So we decided to take another walk and come back. So we came back early at 16:40 pm. And we waited....and we waited......and we waited. The time passed and no boat was coming. It was 17:15 and we went back to the ticket guy and he says the next one comes in 30 minutes. And I said what do you mean next one??where is the 16:45?? He says oh let me call and ask. And he called and tells us oh I talked with my boss and told me that he passed and see no people waiting...Then we went furious because that was a BIG lie, and he saw us coming early and however he still was lying. I would understand if he said we had a technical problem but this no way. We said we were going to call the police and he sais all i can do is give u one ticket refund...
We never travelled with canal bus again!
