We have a brief time in Amsterdam before joining friends in Central Europe. We will fly in the morning of 21 April and leave the night of 22 April. We want to visit the tulip gardens and see what we reasonably can of Amsterdam We're thinking of buying the 2 day Tulip Festival Card (65 Euro) because it include all of the public transportation in Amsterdam, getting to and from airport to city, and airport to Keukenhof Garden, canal cruise and admission to Keukenhof. It doesn't include free museum entry, but it does provide 15% off admission to museums. It seems likely that we could only visit 1 museum anyway, given our limited time. Does the Tulip Festival Car seem like a good idea? We're thinking of also buying a timed ticket to the Van Gogh, but not sure if we ought to just pass on museums and try to absorb the City and gardens, given our limited time. Thoughts? Thank you.
The admission to Keukenhof is 17.50€. With a bus from Amsterdam (cheaper from other places) and return to Amsterdam including the admission it is still only 32.50€.
I hope that pass gives you good value for rest of the half of your 65€.
It sounds overpriced to me.
Is your arrival on the 21st or your departure on the 22nd a long haul flight? If so you will be tired and/or have to check in hours ahead so will be unlikely to get 2 days use out of your pass.
