Treat yourself to the most complete Hop On Hop Off experience in Amsterdam. Combine the boat and the electric Hop On Hop Off bus for a full sightseeing tour through the highly praised historic city center and areas that are off the beaten track.
Hop On Hop Off
The beauty of the Hop On Hop Off combination is that you’re able to combine two means of transport and customize your trip in Amsterdam. The Hop On Hop Off is not just transport, you’re able to get some serious sightseeing done with the panoramic windows and ceilings.
With 20 locations to hop on and off you’ll always find a stop close to your destination and attraction. We offer several stops where you easily switch from the bus to the boat – and the other way around. Even if you go for a short walk in the area, another stop is never far away. This is sightseeing made easy!
Hop On Hop Off boat
At the boat you discover the historic city center of Amsterdam. From Central Station, past the beautifully designed science museum, to the city hall and the Museum Square area.
From there you cruise to the west side of the city center and are able to enjoy the 17th century canal houses before you head over to Amsterdam North and eventually back to Central Station.
Hop On Hop Off bus
The electric bus takes you off the beaten track, but also stops at the popular museum area, of course. From Central Station you’re able to stop at a windmill that turned into a beer tasting room, check out the diamond factory, some more gems in Amsterdam East and then head over to Museum Square and Leidseplein.
From there you’re on your way to the west side of Amsterdam, with the historic Jordaan (and all the bars and restaurants) as one of the highlights. Hop off at Prinseneiland for relaxing at the river side before our driver takes you back to Central Station.
