Panoramic Guided Amsterdam City Tour (bus) + Rijksmuseum

A great introduction to Amsterdam, travel on the brightly covered tourist bus to discover her many historic buildings, canals, squares and bridges combined with a visit to Amsterdam’s beloved Rijksmuseum, the Netherlands’ largest art museum.

Amsterdam has so much more to offer besides the canals. On this live guided tour you will see countless interesting sights and amazing views on the outside of the city centre. You will be able to admire the idyllic suburban scenery and the architecture of beautiful mansions. We will have a photo stop at a remarkable windmill and you will have the opportunity to visit a diamond factory in the Museum District. From this point you can decide whether you want to explore Amsterdam further on your own or return to the bus which will take you back to where the tour started.

This panoramic tour is an ideal introduction to the city and will take you past the major landmarks and buildings including the Amsterdam Canals, the red light district, old harbour, flea market, Amstel River, Skinny Bridge, museums and more! The bus has a transparent roof offering protection from the elements without obstructing your view. In the summer the roof opens creating and open-top bus and you can enjoy recorded commentary through your individual earphones.

You will also visit the extensive collection of art housed in the Rijksmuseum. Amsterdam’s beloved Rijksmuseum is the Netherlands’ largest art museum. An essential part of any tourist’s trip, the museum boasts over a million pieces of art in what is truly a huge collection. Ten years of intense renovations were completed in 2013 when the building was re-inaugurated. The Rijksmuseum’s style now combines traditional and modern elements, as do other famous art museums, such as the Louvre in Paris. Located in Amsterdam’s Museumplein, the Rijksmuseum is close to other highly regarded museums, like the Stedelijk Museum and Van Gogh Museum, and the city’s stunning concert hall, the Royal Concertgebouw.

The Rijksmuseum’s unique design was drawn up by the Dutch architect Pierre Cuypers; first opened in 1885, it became a World Heritage Site in 1970. With big names inside like Rembrandt Van Rijn, Johannes Vermeer, and Frans Hals, the Rijksmuseum has dozens of classic 17th-century Dutch masterpieces in its collection, including iconic paintings like The Milkmaid! It also features pieces by countless other Dutch artists, spanning over five centuries. Especially breathtaking are the self-portraits of artists like Vincent Van Gogh. Rijksmuseum Amsterdam tickets will allow you to browse the museum’s timeless collection at your leisure.
