Hop On – Hop Off buses and boats are a great way to do some city sightseeing in Amsterdam. As you might know by now the weather in Amsterdam is not always cooperative for those who want to do some sightseeing. So it won’t come as a surprise that tourists pouring into the city of Amsterdam, buy Hop On – Hop Off tickets in the thousands.

How does it work? There are different types of tickets available; bus only tickets, boat only tickets and combination tickets. These three types can have a validity of either 24 hours or 48 hours. These tickets can either be bought online with a discount or on the buses and the boats themselves. When combined with a tourist attraction like a museum, there is also the possibility of getting a discount.
