The Van Gogh Museum was more than worth it, but the canal cruise was quite boring! We even upgraded to the Amsterdam Light Festival ticket for 8 euros/ticket and it was not worth the trip. I would have skipped the light tour altogether. If you want to go on a canal cruise I recommended to do it in the day time or better yet go on the tram and see the city... much cheaper and you see so much more of the city in a shorter time frame.

It was amazing to be able to view over 100 works of art painted by Vincent Van Gogh and learn about his life. Pre- booking is essential as there are only a few time slots to view the museum on offer if you have not ordered your tickets online in advance. For example we arrived at the Van Gogh Museum at 11.15am and the next free slot would have been 3.15 in the afternoon, but fortunately we had pre-booked.

To get into the museum, you skip the ticket line but still need to get in que to enter. We picked 9:15am slot and lucked out with much smaller crowds and very enjoyable visit. We also visited the temporary exhibits. We enjoyed lunch after and took our time to cross the town for the boat tour. It was very informative, relaxing and nice. Definitely recommend this package.

Everything worked out well, we didn’t have any problems with the tickets. Also, we requested some additional info by email that was quickly provided. The museum is very beautiful, and the audio guide is a must to understand VG’s work. The cruise was nice, and the Captain very friendly. I recommend both attractions.

Didn't use museum voucher, was concerned where and how to convert to ticket, so went online after contacting your site and bought timed entry ticket direct from VanGogh Museum. Did enjoy cruise when I discovered we could change the voucher and board right across the street from our hotel at Museumplein location.

The only thing i have to underline Is that no skip the line ticket exists actually to access Van Gogh' s Museum. But we entered without problems...Furthermore i want to say that the boat trip was wonderful, especially thanks to the boatman and his talkative personality! Thank you again!

This ticket was worth the cost. The museum was wonderful but very crowded as it was a holiday. We were able to enter immediately. The canal cruise was better than expected. The head phones allowed passengers to be informed. The boat was full and the canals busy be at of the holiday.

The museum was very impressive and very well organised. The canal Cruise was amazing. We enjoyed every minute of it, because we had it in the evening when all the lights were on, and the commentary also included a variety of information that we wouldn't have gotten otherwise.

interactive audio tour is pretty good, easy to understand. the museum ranges over 4 floors, so can be a little log winded. lots to see. only downside is the interactive audio doesn't cover all the art. quite spacious and other museums near by, such as banksy events.

Cruise very good although directions to get there poor. Van Gogh museum excellent despite bad-mannered fellow visitors (standing directly in front of pics blocking view). Don’t miss BRILLIANT Millet exhibition downstairs - plenty of Van Gogh there too.

Take a spectacular one-hour cruise through the historic canal district with a visit to the world-famous Van Gogh Museum. The world's largest collection of Vincent van Gogh artwork can be found at the Van Gogh Museum. Millions of people have visited it, making it one of the Netherlands' most important museums. A thrilling boat cruise is the ideal way to conclude a fun day trip to the Van Gogh Museum.

A visit to the Van Gogh Museum, home to the world's largest collection of paintings, drawings, sketches, and letters by the well-known Dutch painter is just one half of the tour. It is the second most popular museum in the Netherlands and definitely a must-see with nearly two million visitors annually. More than 200 paintings, 400 drawings and 700 letters by the famous artist are on display at the Van Gogh Museum. Skull of a Skeleton with Burning Cigarette (1886), The Potato Eaters (1885), as well as Almond Blossoms (1890) and Sunflowers (1889) are among the collection's most well-known works.

An Amsterdam canal cruise is included in the other half of the package. An Amsterdam canal cruise is the best way to see the beautiful city center of Amsterdam, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The entertaining one-hour cruise will take you through the city's most important canals, passing magnificent churches, boat houses, mansions and bridges from the 17th century. The Magere Brug on the Amstel river, the Negen Straatjes district and the Westerkerk church are just a few of the best places to see. The cruise has a GPS guide that has an information in few languages. The boats have panoramic windows so you can see a great deal of the city.

Significant information:

  • Children(aged 3 or younger) are permitted to pass free of charge (in case they don't occupy the separate seat)
  • Your booked time slot will be your entrance time to the Van Gogh Museum
  • The canal cruise's time-slot must be reserved right upon arrival in Amsterdam
