In relation to the Van Gogh museum, we didn't purchase a headset during our visit but you can literally read up on all the art and know the history of Van Gogh as the information was on the wall next to the picture. Museum is spread over 4 floors so if you had the headset it will direct you to the hanging picture that has number next to it but as we didn't we often travel in the wrong direction. This for me was not a problem as each picture has a different story to tell. As for the canal trip, we had in ear headphone provided for us so knew all the history. Very interesting to know the history so highly recommend. Give yourself plenty of time between the canal trip and the Van Gogh museum as they are not near each other.

If we didn't buy the museum ticket from this site we wouldn't be able to access the museum. the people in the queue outside informed him that it was Sold out and that there was no way to buy a ticket for the Sunday we went, so fortunately we bought it

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.
