    The Rijksmuseum is a must for anyone anyone visiting Amsterdam. It’s a beautiful space with much to see. Wonderful, memorable paintings and just a joy to walk around. Don’t leave without a piece of Dutch apple cake in the cafe. It’s delicious. The canal cruise was ok. Confused where to board but otherwise it’s a large canal boat and takes you around the canals. The audio is available in lots of Languages and seemed ok. Audio quality not HD but perfectly ok for the purpose. Seemed good value buying this ticket.

    This ticket is a great combo: the Rijkmuseum is really to do, because of its incredible architecture, its paintings, and more. Small inconvenience, there are a lot of people... you have to have at least 3/4 hours in front of you if you want to be able to visit everything. Regarding the ticket for the canal tour, the meeting point is really right next to the Rijkmuseum, it's a very good point! Possibility to choose your language for the explanations on the history of Amsterdam during the walk, and it lasts well 70min as indicated. On the other hand, I would have liked to have more information, it was sometimes sloppy and very fast. If you want to fully enjoy your ride, take an open-top boat ride in a small group. On the whole this double ticket remains brilliant.

    Worth the price. Nice boat tour. The museum speaks for itself: a lot to see and normally crowed, so at least 2:30 hours to explore the entire museum for those that aren’t art specialists like me. If you like reading every wall-board explanation, it’ll take the whole day. I recommend this tour.
