Amsterdam is a great city. It was very busy, so we decided to do the Hop-on-Hop-off tour. The boats are great, the busses were very warm inside. Tips for Amsterdam: Van Gogh Museum, Albert Cuyp Market and Newmarket.

We wanted a canal tour that we could stay-on/get-off depending on what we wanted to do, and this fit the bill. The "guide" aspect is a recording that you use with headphones (provided by tour) so if you're looking for a more interactive experience, this...More
