If you're wandering Amsterdam on your own, this card is a must! If for no other reason, it's worth it for the free public transport. There was a tram stop right outside our hotel, and this card allows you to hop on and off whenever and wherever you want. So convenient. There's also a variety of discounts, and a map. Again, worth every penny.
Two important tips:
1. You have to collect the card at the Tourist Info Center, directly across from the central train station. It's easy enough to find. But you do have to get there first.
2. Downstairs, in the same building, is Cafe Loetje. Stop in for a beer and some bitterballen. You'll be glad you did.

The city pass saved us loads of money, so easy to hop on the trams and not worry about payment. The free canal trip was a lovely relaxing trip to see around the city. Would definitely buy again.

You could spend a lifetime trying to see all that Amsterdam has to offer. This card helped me a lot on my solo trip to the city. The next time I'm there, I'll definitely be using this card again.

My three days in Amsterdam did not make me an expert. But I can encourage those who are wondering whether to visit that it's marvelous whether you are on a tour or going without guidance. First of all, it's a very easy city to navigate. The I Amsterdam card makes travel very inexpensive on the trams, and most of the museums are free or discounted. Getting to the city from the airport by train is relatively easy, except that there isn't much room for luggage on a full train. Once you are settled in, you can get everywhere without fear. We saw the vanGogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum, and the Troppen Museum a special gem, as well as a number of other sites. The Anne Frank Huis, not on the card, usually requires advance reservations. I downloaded my tickets 2 months before I arrived. The card also allows you one canal boat cruise. It's a great way to learn a lot of the history of the city by way of the audio guide, which comes in about ten languages. There is dining to suit every taste, from fast food to fine dining. We never did see the Red Light District, which is to my thinking rather hyped up. There are numerous coffee shops that sell marijuana in one form or another. Just remember that you are often walking near a canal! I have no idea how strong the various wares they sell really are, but exercise caution. The people in Amsterdam are almost without exception very friendly. Many of them do smoke. I was really shocked. And if they are on a bike, which is all of them, you may get run over if you're not really careful. All in all, Amsterdam is truly a four season delight.
