I booked 48 hr card. Easy to book museums and canal cruise online, used the 24 hr bike rental included which you can start at anytime within the card time so I walked around for 2 days and used the bike rental on the 3rd day before 11 am when the card expired. It was good value if you are doing a few things

I have enjoyed my day with this tour and special thanks to Dephne and the driver . Worth for money and will definitely book again. Everything was perfect and she welcomed us by waffle and water , so planned and on time .

If you are planning on visiting many place in Amsterdam and move relatively alot with Transportation...this card is very very useful. Only the NS train service is not inclused in the card (Stand: 12.10.2020)

It was a nice trip. I saved lots of money. If you are able to visit many museums in a very short time, you will enjoy the card.
