We used the region travel ticket every day of our stay in Amsterdam. It was very convenient to use on the trains and trams. We used it to visit the nearby regions of Amsterdam.

Great pass if you plan your highlights in advance. You can definitely save money and check-in went smoothly everywhere. Definitely a recommendation.

Beautiful garden, skip-the-line ticket was very useful as there were very long queues at the entrance.
