Yup, we are definitely walking. Or taking the tram.
Upon arrival at Schiphol airport, the big K and I bought transport passes that would take care of our transport needs in Amsterdam. The GVB, Amsterdam's public transport company, sells multiple day cards with unlimited rides on their trams, buses and metros.
For visitors like us this is a good idea so you don't have to worry about looking for coins to pay the driver every time you board. A 24 hour card comes out cheaper if you plan to use it at least 3 times within the day. Cheaper still for longer period day cards.
The city trams. They don't really go with the general old-Europe decor, but they are efficient, convenient and clean.
The stops have map routes to guide you.
We wanted to get the 72 hour card but it wasn't available so we bought these instead.
For our museum and attraction hopping, we bought the 7 ticket Amsterdam Holland Pass which we also got at the airport. We chose this card instead of the I Amsterdam card since the former included the Rijksmuseum which was not included in the latter which saved us EUR28.00 in entrance fees.
The Van Gogh and Rijks museums are equivalent to one Tulip coupon each.
You exchange a Holland Pass coupon for tickets to your selected museum.
