We enjoyed a trip on the hop on, hop off canal boats today, also known as canal busses. They have three different "lines" which take you all over central Amsterdam. The red line probably covers the most central a popular of the trips as it circles the main canal district. The boats feature almost an entire glass enclosure on the top allowing for optimum viewing space. It was rather cold on easter weekend, however it was still warm on the bus. It is about 40 minutes between the next boat if you do get off, so you have to watch the schedule closely if you plan to disembark. We just did the complete trip around the red line. There is a commentary but it is not quite as informative as hop on, hop off trips in other cities although it does give some interesting facts. It plays out in Dutch followed by English. Overall, I would recommend this for those wanting a good way to get acquainted with the city from one of the cities national treasures, it's canals.
