The Amsterdam City Card was definitely worth it. We used the tram and metro to get between the more distant destinations more quickly. We didn't really manage all of the included attractions in 5 days :-) Booking timeslots online without buying tickets was a bit complicated for some museums etc. We would book the City Card again for our next visit to Amsterdam!

The museum is a well structured experience which depicted the life of Rembrandt within the building including the historical, economical and artistic aspects of his era along with technical aspects of his art. I loved it. It gets crowded near noon. So it's better to get there either early or late afternoon.

He public transportation portion was well used. We are ate 2 of the discount estaurantsand enjoyed them. And it was so nice to be able to enter the zoo and museums knowing it was paid with the card.

Very easy and there is a lot of choice of things to do. Public transport is unlimited and you can visit Amsterdam easily. However, you need a good pair of legs because the tram stops are far apart

Wonderful experience! Charming place, great information about Rembrandt’s life, beautiful paintings.
