    There were no problems with the tickets. The addresses are given on the tickets so that it is easy to find. A 24-hour ticket for public transport is available for a tour of the arena (€ 8). This can then be used for further trips in Amsterdam. The canal trip can be done at any time. It is the best way to get to know the city.

    Enjoyed excursion to the fullest ....

    The stadium was easily accessible by metro. The indication of where to report (check-in at the stadium on the ground floor) could be improved. The stadium tour was carried out with a lot of humor and enthusiasm by the guide and was a lot of fun. The canal tour was also very informative and gave us a lot of useful information.

    La croisière sur les canaux est intéressante, on peut y apprendre pleins de choses sur l'histoire de la ville et sur le mode du vie des habitants d'Amsterdam. Gros coup de coeur pour la visite du stade où nous avons eu la chance d'avoir un guide qui nous fait ressentir sa passion pour le club de l'Ajax mais aussi son interet pour le foot en général avec une grande connaissance sur d'autres clubs et leurs joueurs. Une visite complète : vestiaires domicile/visiteurs, pelouse/gradins, salle de presse, musée. Petit bonus : 10% de remise dans la boutique officielle de l'Ajax.
