Going around Amsterdam in early May

Hi, I am travelling to Amsterdam as a couple around Apr 30 to May 3.

Shame on me that I don't ride a bike, I will really fall from a bike ...

What is better option, rent a car or public transport? in terms of total cost if we travel to several tourist spots and carrying luggage around?

Do NOT rent a car. You do not need or want one in Amsterdam.

Total costs depends entirely on what you want to spend and where you want to go. Could you give some details on your plans?

Your post is not all that clear.

Are you staying in Amsterdam for those few short days ?

Are you suggesting you will be staying in other cites as well during those few short days?

If you are staying in Amsterdam then I do not see where carrying around luggage comes into play except for getting from airport to hotel.

No car. Never a car. That is the easy one.

As for Amsterdam itself I find the best transportation option is walking, followed by more walking, followed by lots of walking and then at least one tram ride when I get tired.

You may opt for more tram and less walking.
