Hi there,

No trains included at all. So that's separate tickets. You could consider the Regional day pass, this includes all GVB travel _and_ Connexxion buses to a.o. Zaandam - slower than train but do the job as well.

Have fun,

Thanks for your response, didn't see it until today. I agreed with you, most of the Museum included in the I Amsterdam card are not that interesting. How much is the cost of using the tram, I think it might be easier for renting a bike or scooter.

Well if you mean TRAIN as no tram to Zaandam: see www.ns.nl, it depends on the exact train station close to your hotel.

All the best,
