Amsterdam Hop On Hop Off Cruise

The best way to explore Amsterdam and get a feel for the city. Travel along the waterways on a comfortable boat and hop-on and hop-off at any of the 19 stops which are located near the major museums, attractions and shopping areas.

The Amsterdam Hop On Hop Off Cruise is a fun way to explore this delightful city and provides the perfect opportunity for visitors to get their bearings.

The comfortable boats operate along three routes, taking you to the best known landmarks and attractions including the Rijksmuseum, Anne Frank House and Rembrandt House.
