Description

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, and show it at the entrance of the Van Gogh Museum. 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!

Fabulous combination of activities. A real insight into the life of this eccentric artist. The canal cruise was much better than expected- we learnt such a lot about Amsterdam!
