Canal cruise: 1 hour
  • Delve into Van Gogh's unique talent that was really only appreciated after his death
  • 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

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!

Van Gogh museum was great the headphone set makes it even more interesting.
I did not enjoy the canal cruise, very boring.
always sit facing the driver otherwise all information given through the headset is very hard to follow as you can't see what they are talking about until it's passed.

I loved the ride on the lover’s cruise and VAN GOGH museum was the highlight of my time in Amsterdam. I loved every second of it, full of rich history about Van Gogh; his personal, family and friends life. Everything was just perfect!!! I’ve been a Van Gogh fan since I was 15 and I can finally say I went to his museum at the age of 22, better late than never!!!
