Overall rating

4.5 / 5

Very practical if you are in Amsterdam for several days. You can reserve the timeslots for the museums and many museums are included. Important: book the I Amsterdam Card first and THEN the timeslots! And criss-cross the city by public transport

Efficient way to move around and tour Amsterdam. We’ve used the card for pubic transportation within the city (busses, trams, and the metro); and entry to most of the museums and attractions.

This card was worth every cent. We bought the four day card. Having access to all transportation and entry to museums, and a cruise, this card paid for itself in the first day!

highly recommend the teams on the boats are really friendly and knowledgeable and I wish we had done this on our first day

Very practical city card, to be used in the vast majority of museums
