HI, was wondering what transport tickets you purchased? i was thinking of getting the 3 day travel ticket with GVB for 25 euros but they don't run buses up to Zaandam, however there is the Amsterdam and region travel ticket which is 13 euros a day but you can travel anywhere in amsterdam and up to zaandam and to right outside the hotel, could you recommend anything?
Hi Laura, sorry that I have no idea about that. I was going by car and never tried any other means of transportation.
If I were you, I would buy the 13 € ticket on those days when I need to travel far and walk other days. Sometimes, a regular ticket is just as good as the tourist tickets. It depends on what you are planning to do in the area.
