Hi there,

Kid gets the Railrunner for the train, only 2.50/day. No idea whether Holland Pass is worth it for you, see here

Sorry to break the bad news but there is no pass that covers what you want to do. The ARTT only covers Amsterdam and region, the clue is in the name. So Zaandam to Amsterdam and around fine.It will not cover Zaandam to Alkmaar so maybe you need to swap some things about.

>>Amsterdam City - Van Gogh Museum - Rijksmuseum- Cheese Museum - Heineken Experience - Nieuwmarkt- Bloemenmarkt<<

There is no cheese museum in Amsterdam. The place calling itself that is a cheese shop. The Kas Museum is in Alkmaar.

Your daughter. Well for trains there a railrunner ticket which is €2.50 per day for unlimited travel. For Amsterdam trams there is a GVB child ticket for €3.60 for the day.

This screams tripkey.nl but with the distribution issues they have you can maybe register for that and as a backup get an OV card each and load it with money.

Amsterdam and Region Travel Ticket will only be valid for trips around Zaandam/Amsterdam, not Utrecht/Leiden/Rotterdam

The child travels for 2.50 a day on all trains in NL https:/…railrunner

day 1: depending on where your hotel is: no public transport needed

day 2: If you want to travel in the order Utrecht - Leiden - Keukenhof - Leiden - The Hague - Utrecht:

for the child: Railrunner (all trains)

adults: train ticket: Utrecht - Leiden (10.50 euros), Leiden - The Hague Central (4.50 euros) and The Hague - Utrecht (12.20 euros)

Leiden - Keukenhof: https://keukenhof.nl/en/footer/buy-tickets/ (bus and entrance)

another option would be to return from The Hague to Leiden and from there to Utrecht. In that case you can buy for the adults one ticket Utrecht - Leiden - Keukenhof via https:/…Keukenhof and a return Leiden - Den Haag Centraal for 10 euros.

From The Hague Central to Madurodam you'll need tram 9 (day ticket adult: 6.50 euro, child: 1.50 euro)

day 3: depending on where your hotel is: no public transport needed
