    An excellent way to explore Amsterdam is to take a cruise down its famous waterways. The City Sightseeing Hop-on, Hop-off boat is interesting and informative, besides being a truly authentic way to soak up the charms of the Venice of the North across a whole day!

    Cruise through the beautiful city of Amsterdam, with the flexibility to hop on and off as you wish, to discover it at your pace. Sink into the idyllic vibes of the city as you listen to commentary onboard in 18 languages and glide past the major landmarks.

      The only thing there are a lot of operators doing the same cruises from different peers - need time for understandyng that. Better to print the operation company on the ticket.
