See the best of Amsterdam while you’re in port with a day pass for the city’s hop-on hop-off canal tour, which includes skip-the-line access to one of Amsterdam's top attractions -- the Van Gogh Museum! The perfect do-it-yourself shore excursion in Amsterdam, the hop-on hop-off day pass allows you to travel around the city on a comfortable sightseeing boat, known as a ‘canal bus.’ Stop at Amsterdam’s top attractions like the Rijksmuseum and the Anne Frank House and explore the city at your own pace. Then, jump the long queues at the Van Gogh Museum, always high on the 'must-do list' for visitors to Amsterdam. See the world's largest collection of paintings by Vincent van Gogh, including such famous works as “Sunflowers".
In Amsterdam, canals are like roads, ferrying locals and visitors around the city. Instead of the sightseeing buses you’d find somewhere else, sightseeing boats are a unique way to tour Amsterdam while you’re in port. On this convenient shore excursion, set your own itinerary with a hop-on hop-off canal bus tour. Hop on and off as often as you like at 7 to 9 (depending on the season) canal stops located near Amsterdam's major museums, attractions and shopping centers. The pass is valid for one day, and the onboard commentary provides interesting information about Amsterdam.

Included with your day pass is a skip-the-line admission ticket to the Van Gogh Museum! Jump the long queues so you can go straight inside the museum to admire the artwork. The museum contains the world's largest collection of paintings by Vincent van Gogh, including such famous works as Sunflowers and several self-portraits. The museum's comprehensive collection of Van Gogh's work allows you to track the artist’s creative development, and compare his paintings to works by his 19th-century contemporaries like Gauguin and Monet.

This excursion is located within a 15-minute walk to the Amsterdam cruise port, so you determine the time you return to your ship in Amsterdam. Please allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.
