Flemish museum and cruise up and down

the hop on hop off cruise is undoubtedly a tour to do in amsterdam, it allows you to visit the city through its canals giving the possibility to get off at any place you are interested in. It lasts 24 h since the ticket is printed so if you you do it in the middle of the day you also have the next day. I recommend when you go up you say you are Italian so they will put their language in the guide!

Reichsmuseum skip-the-line and relaxed canal cruise

I thought I could show the voucher on my smartphone like on the other tours. This didn't work. So I had to get out of the museum and the canal bus to exchange everything for two tickets. Unfortunately, this was only very upset. After that I came to the Reich Museum without queuing. I still recommend being there early, otherwise there is too much going on. The beautiful building and the extensive collection are definitely worth spending several hours. After that I did two canal tours, the red one and the green one. It is worth planning this in advance, as the boats are only once an hour at each jetty. A complete tour takes about 1 1/2 hours. If you want to see and take pictures well, you should look for a place in the direction of travel at the open center of the boat. The tour is not so suitable for hop-on / hop-off. But with the two full tours I fully enjoyed it.

Enjoyed the cruise and the weather

Indicate better on and off points! Because of the many providers you can no longer see the trees through the forest! Reasonably long search for these points and no proper information at the points of sale
