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.
