Very good value for money, allowed me the freedom to hop on and off trams around the city as I pleased and squeeze in as many museums and attractions as I could with either free or discounted entry. I ran out of time! Would definitely buy it again next time I'm in Amsterdam.
The card is very easy to use, you have to read properly what is your options. I used my cars to visit van gough museum, diamond museum, bias trip and 3 more museums.
I bought a 2 day card and it was a bit of a rush to most museums but we ended up walking mostly because it's not that far to get to places. I loved how many places this card gets you into. The zoo was totally worth it! Never been to such a huge zoo and it was free with the card. Also the gondola was awesome! I would say get it if you like museums and stuff like that.
This card was great for both public transportation and many admissions. Getting around Amsterdam by tram was very easy, the map provided was great, and so we had a wonderful time. The only caveat is the fact that the card wasn't accepted everywhere. Although it clearly stated which places took it -- and which simply gave discounts -- it was slightly disappointing. But all in all, I still give it 5 stars.
The card made he trip.
The Best point was not having to wait in line.
Saved us hours of vacation time.
Our favorite Northern Europe city. We found that the card was just right to get us in to the museums and attractions we wanted and we really used the public transportation benefit a lot. It made it very easy to get around.
Phenomenal value! I can’t rate the I amsterdam Card highly enough... the card got us in everywhere we wanted to go without the need to carry cash for admittance. Simply brilliant and so easy to use. Highlight of the trip for us was the Hortus Botanicus and its beautiful butterflies. Lovely people, wonderful public transport, fantastic green parks and so many memories to treasure. We didn’t want to leave and can’t wait to go back...
The city card was heavily taken advantage of. Everything we did (apart from ther anne frank house) was free or cheaper because of it, and i don't think we wanted to do anything else. Didn't use the discount on food at all, as we found that the places which were discounted were either expensive, or too specific for us to use. The card was brilliant for travel, and the public transport in amsterdam is fantastic. Went to some very interesting places, and the city itself is beautiful. overall, the trip was amazing and the city card just made it better. Definitely worth it
extremely worth it, even though everything was walking distance the access to the tram with the card saved us time travelling to each destination. We managed to visit many of the museums up on offer while the information we received upon collecting the card was very useful.
We had a wonderful time in Amsterdam and we were able to use this card to get into quite a number of the Museums its so useful and save having to have money on you and we got to bypass the crowds we will definitely use this again when we return.
This is a great deal if you want to visit multiple museums, since the vast majority of the museums in Amsterdam and nearby are included.
This is an excellent choice because of the many options it gives travelers. We used it for the tram, museums and the canal boat ride. I highly recommend this.
THIS IS A MUST HAVE! For the cost of the museums and trams it pays for itself. From Amsterdam CS make sure you catch the trams for the Museums from there. It is a good walking distance and if you want to get those in it is best to use the tram system. The canal tour was another that I did and it was a good overview of the Amstel and other areas that the canals run through and around. There are many free museums listed and for the cost of each approximately 15+ Euros plus the cost of using the tram, the I Amsterdam card is well worth it. Make sure you stop at the I Amsterdam inside the airport to get the card, tram card, and general map when you arrive. FYI**IF YOU ARE STAYING OUTSIDE OF AMSTERDAM LIKE I WAS** The I Amsterdam card WILL NOT WORK with the train going from the airport into Amsterdam or any of the buses or trams outside Amsterdam. It will cost you approx 8 Euros for a round trip ticket to take the train from the airport into Amsterdam CS. Approximately $12 round trip. Personally if you are staying longer than a week it would probably be cheaper and better to stay in Amsterdam than at a hotel outside or by the airport due to the cost to go in to Amsterdam. The reason, you are IN Amsterdam and can plan more within the city and not worry about having to meet a deadline to catch a tram, airport transportation, etc. like I had to worry about. Most of all, have fun, the people of Amsterdam are amazing and I am looking forward to going back again soon!
Used it for the trams and went to Van Gough Museum. Worth the price.
In contrast to your Berlin pass, the Amsterdam pass was well set up. The check-in spot was very easy to find, the people were very helpful and friendly and both the boat tour and the Kukienhol tours started right in front of the check-in location. In addition there was a person outside the check-in location giving directions to the correct tour buses and boats. Nicely done and very convenient.
All in our party of 6 would recommend the Amsterdam pass to anyone traveling there.
The card covers almost all attractions, it also gave us the idea to go see Zanse Schans. However, it is important to note that it doesn't save you the time of waiting in lines, you still have to show the card in exchange to tickets. So, it is better to also buy skip the line card or just to arrive early to all attractions (around 9-10 am).
I had to organise 20 guys for a stag party. The I Amsterdam card was essential in getting everybody around the city and great for freebies and discounts on food. The river cruise was great (remember to bring your own though)
Well worth the cost. We used it at soooo many locations. I'm sure that we more than got our money back.
The card is handy including many attraction that I would not visit without it. I visited 14 Attraction in 48 hrs. The card also skip the line on many place.
If you are a museum buff, this is an absolutely great deal. The pass pays for itself after just a handful of museum admissions, plus you can ride the great tram system as much as you want for free, and you get a free must-do canal cruise on top of it.
The I Amsterdam card got us into every museum and gave us a discount at the Rembrandt museum. We still had to pay something. We went o about 5-6 museums and the pass got us in without paying anything else.
The city pass was great! We picked it up at the airport on arrival and were able to use it on all public transportation with the exception of the airport link. Our apartment was 2 blocks from the #1 tram which we used every day. Visited more museums than we probably would have because we had the card, and of course, the Canal Cruise is a must. Only regret was that the Van Gogh museum was closed for relocation during our exact dates. Guess we'll have to go back again!
Very good bargain. Great tram system in Amsterdam, and did we use it. The best part about the museum passes was being able to just go in and not wait in the tremendous lines.
The Amsterdam card was a great asset, though it should include a hand held radar device to detect speeding Bikes... RICHARD
