This card is really useful. I use it to get discounts to many museums.
Well worth the money - especially for the "skip the line" feature. It should be more clearly stated that when you are selecting your 2 museum admissions that you cannot select both the Van Gogh and the Rijks museum.
Great way to get around the city. The pass also has many benefits with discounts, etc.
My friend and I travelled to Amsterdam on Friday 10 February for a long weekend. The Amsterdam pass was excellent value for money and I would highly recommend it.
Very straightforward to obtain and great value for money. Thoroughly enjoyed Madame Tussauds and the Reypannaer cheese tasting. The city tour with was an excellent way to see Amsterdam and the stop at the Gassam diamond factory was fascinating.
We utilized this pass with the Hop on hop off bus canal pass with great efficiency. Great value while gong around Amsterdam.
the Holland pass saved for the 2 of us about 120 euros! we used the 3 red tulip tickets (most expensive) foe Amsterdam canal hop on/hop off(22 euros saved pp), Van Gogh museum(14 euros saved pp) and Rijksmuseum (12 euros saved pp). One of the blue (windmill )ticket we used for the one hour canal ride in Amsterdam.Be careful, the canal ride and the canal bus hop on/off are provided by different companies so make sure you consult the guide given with the Holland pass well. 25% savings were at Spido boat in Rotterdam and the Mauritshuis in the Hague.20% savings at Jewish museum and the Portuguese Synagogue in Amsterdam. Worth every penny.
A wonderful way to see Holland and Amsterdam. The guide is extremely heplful to plan the day
Would highly recommend the pass. It paid for itself after a few attractions. Not waiting on line is well worth it.
Good Value for the Money and we seen quite a lot for the time we were there one week

I would say that the first there categories namely A, B and C cover the most attractive places. I used A for the Van Gogh Museum, B for Keukenhof Tulip Garden the garden only opens 2 months in a year that is to say in spring season and C for Canal Cruise since I stayed 4 days and 3 nights in Holland. But, to use all the remaining D & E, you have to stay a bit longer. But, a bit misleading on the Miniature City in Madurodam as it only provides 10 discount check at the bottom part of the page in the booklet for the entrance fee and the coupon either A,B,C,D or E is not applicable for the free entrance.
This is an excellent buy aslongas you preplan the use of the tickets. It is even a good buy if you only use it in Amsterdam as we did over the space of 3 days we made us for the money expended.
Viator and the Holland pass offer the major attractions of this beautiful country in a high quality, good priced basket. One thing you have to be sure before purchasing the Holland Pass is to have plenty of time for the many beauties to visit and contemplate.
Everything worked OK, EXCEPT.....
We were not allowed to skip the line at either the Reichs Museum or the Van Goh Museum. After showing our Holland Pass, we were directed to the back of the line in both places. Also, in the Reichs Museum, they just scanned our Holland Pass tickets and let us in. Later we had to exit to use the bathrooms, and when we tried to return, we were told we did not have tickets and that the Holland passes would not work. That started a hassle to get back in.
Happy with this item and enjoyed the hop on hop off bus tours. Still had to line up for 20mins at Van Gogh Museum and no wait at the Rijksmuseum. Didn't use my two silver passes as ran out of time. Good value.
Worth the price if you plan to go to the museums especially the gold level.
But if you plan to go to the high in demand museums such as Rijkmuseum or Van Gogh, you still need to come early. Otherwise the line is still long even for Holland pass holder.
Keep in mind, if you want the free metro pass, you have to exchange of the silver ticket. Then your metro pass is good for 24 hours after your first scan.
So before buying this you should really plan what you want to see and where you want to go. Then you can plan which level of pass you should buy.
This is a useful pass if you have time to do the cruise and hop on, hop off. Really get to know the city.
We very much enjoyed our trip to Amsterdam earlier this spring. Prepurchasing the pass did make us get up and go on the tours. Not at all impressed with drizzling rain wait for two hours with the skip the line pass for the van Gogh Museum. The museum visit was a highlight.
Exactly what I expected. The fast pass was great for Van Gogh. We had no line at Rijksmuseum, but glad we didn't have to worry about getting in.
It's a good pass.. Took the large pass and used most of it.. Just wish it included public transport as well..
I had a great time. Use of the Holland Pass made my entry to the Rejkamuseum and Van ogh museum very quick although there was not a big line in the regular queue. Also, I used one of the silver starts to buy a public transport day-pass which helped me to move from one place to next using trams. All in all, a good experience.
The holland pass was worth buying, but I wish I used the hop on hop off cruise instead of the bus. The one in Amsterdam only has you listen to a recording instead of a live person showing you the buildings. Then there was no signs telling you where to catch the bus and at times you weren't able to get back on because it was too full. We went the end of May and would recommend renting a bike or taxing a taxi when needed.
