Overall rating

based on 1,640 reviews

Easy to use and you can see all options for tickets in Amsterdam. For a longer stay it’s better to buy the ticket from the beginning for more days because it’s cheaper, instead buying every day a new ticket. Don’t forget to check in and out every time you use the transport.

Once we worked out how to use the pass it was great, especially as we were stopping outside of main Amsterdam. We used it on the trains, buses and the tram. We definitely got our money's worth.

Our driver was so helpful retrieving our lungage in a very chaotic situation. I don’t think we would have been able to retrieve it all in time without him. Very friendly and helpful.

The bus was fast and efficient to get to our vondel park area. The tram/metro pass was a huge convenience, and the system is easy and a pleasure to use

We were. Able to hop on buses, trams which made it pretty easy to get around town.
