What people are saying about Amsterdam

Picked up at the shop without any problems and off we went with public transport through Amsterdam. Good information material and the app. Great selection of museums. And even more attractions like thus is Holland. Also Lookout Amsterdam is 100 meters above Amsterdam.

Excellent value! We used the tram multiple times a day. Thanks to another review, we knew right where to go to pick up the tickets. The GVB office is across the tram tracks from Centraal Station in a white building. It’s not in the station itself.

Fabulous value for the time we were there. Easy to use and lots of inclusions. Highly recommend!
