We bought a 24 hour ticket. We didnt think we would do a city bus tour, but actually it really helped us to get our barings and figure out where everything was. It made it even better that we could jump on and off whenever the bus stopped! There are 11 stops and the map they provide is really helpful... More

We received a warm friendly from our host Francesca, the hop on hop off tour is a great way to visit all the top attractions easily whilst listening to the audio tour guide, we opted for the 24 hour ticket. A recommendation to the bus company would be to remove the logo sticker which obscures the visibility for the wheelchair... More

Staff at every site were extremely friendly and helpful! Even to the point of getting a supply of hand sanitiser when there was no water to wash hands.

Swapped to the boat later in the day picking that up at Central Station too. Staff all friendly and loved the boat tour especially. The fact... More

We had a great time discovering Amsterdam with City Sightseeing. We paid 36 euros a person for the combination bus and boat hop-on hop-off for 48 hours. Although the bus and boat routes pretty much mirrors each other most of the way, it was still nice to experience the two modes of transportation. Service was a big plus with friendly... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
