Canal cruise: 1 hour
  • Make it a real Amsterdam day with an hour-long canal cruise and an insightful trip to the wonderful Van Gogh Museum - enjoy skip-the-line access
  • Overload on beauty with a cruise through Amsterdam's picturesque canals, as you pass by the houses and beautiful windows
  • Delve into Van Gogh's unique talent that was really only appreciated after his death

A splendid boat cruise through Amsterdam's canals, plus a trip to the Van Gogh Museum. These are two quintessential Amsterdam activities. If you finish your day off with a tiny glass of Heineken and some raw herring and onions, you'll practically be entitled to a Dutch passport.

When you're in Amsterdam, you want to make the most of your time. This involves sightseeing and visiting the city's world-class museums. With this combi-ticket, you avoid an either/or situation; get access to a one-hour canal cruise through Amsterdam's UNESCO World Heritage canals and a visit to the Van Gogh Museum.

Aboard the ship, you'll see the cultural wealth of 17th-century Amsterdam, with famous and important sights such as the Anne Frank House, the Skinny Bridge, and the Westerkerk.

Before or after the cruise, depending on your timeslot, take the same ticket you used to board the boat, skip the long line at the Van Gogh Museum and show it at the entrance. BOOM! You're in.

The museum has over 200 of his impeccable works including landscapes, still lifes and drawings and letters. You'll also enjoy works by some of Van Gogh’s contemporaries, including Monet and Gauguin, both of whom were a big influence on him.

With just one slick ticket, you'll save money and time, plus scratch two major must-do Amsterdam activities off of your itinerary!

Il giro in battello e' stato pittoresco, unica pecca il fatto di doversi imbarcare solo dalla stazione centrale. Peccato nn ci fosse un servizio bar a bordo. Personale gentile e corretto.

I arrived early to the Van Gogh museum as suggested and did not have to wait in line. The museum wasn't very crowded so I felt like I was not rushed through. I arrived at the canal cruise just in time for the sunset. It was a lovely way to see the city and watch the sun set over various bridges.

Great booking system. Early arrival at Van Gogh meant uncrowned galleries. It wasn't clear from our tickets where and how to find our canal tour and the queue for that was around done hour on the cold.
