All the main attractions are foreseen in the itineraries of the bus and boats. The personnel is very courteous and helpful. The only very negative point is that the stops of the bus are not indicated. A simple signboard with the company logo and stop...More

Hi Kookie, Thanks for leaving such a nice review! More importantly, we are happy you had a good time in Amsterdam and enjoyed the tours on our buses and boats and the commentary on board! Kind regards, Fabio

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
