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.
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.

Great choice! If offered the next time we visit I will purchase again.
Head of the line privilege at the Riyjksmuseum was excellent given the long normal lines.
It was a good choice for me. I had my mom and just did know what the time limits mite be for her so it turned out great for that reason
Easy to locate the office at the Airport in ADM and even at the Central Station. The tickets were a God sent as it was Kings' Birthday. We used it for three museums and Hop On Hop Off segments. I recommended the service to friends in our tour who were staying after the cruise. A great gift for travelers. nice friendly staff all around.
Very useful to have as queues to bigger museums very long and discounts on smaller ones soon save price of card.
Having the Holland Pass was great and saved us some money. However, when they say skp the line, it's really just skip ONE of the lines....then you have to get your confirmation ticket, and then you need to get in line to put your backpack away....etc. But, it really is worth it! If you have the chance to take the hop on hop off bus, it's great! Taking a canal ride on a Saturday when it's spring break is not a great idea....save that for a Monday day or evening. Amsterdam's a GREAT city and the tram is a wonderful way to get around.
A wonderful holiday - shame about the weather, but then you don't take a break in Northern Europe and hope for tropical sunshine.
What is worth mentioning is the usefulness of the City Pass - a real boon and such good value for money. We were using it all the time and still had some vouchers left over. Moreover the tram/bus/metro ticket were a real plus, not least because the trams are great fund and very efficient .........bring them back here at home is what I say!
The Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum were spectacular, but what came as a first for us was the Stedelijk Museum for modern art and design. I cannot claim to be any sort of expert when it comes to modern art and much was beyond my understanding, but quite fascinating and well worth a visit, oh and the restaurant is first class to.
Yes a gret mini break and I look forward to going back soon.
The Holland pass was great value and made our trip to amsterdam enjoyable. The only down side was the lack of assistance when collecting the tickets from the airport.They gave no instructions on how to use the vouchers, for example the tram voucher you need to exchange it for a travel card before you use the trams, which was pointed out by a nice tram attendant. Also if you required extra two day travel it was 3 Euro cheaper from the hotel shop than from the travel centre
WE visited many of the attractions with the pass ,generally good value but we should have been told how the transport card works when we picked up the booklet and pass
Absolutely the best buy. Used the public transport system to get around and see the beautiful city of Amsterdam. We also visited some very good museums and attractions. Well worth the purchase.
