Very practical. The GVB service store stays right in front of the Amsterdam Centraal, across the street. You can get maps there for free too. I got there with the voucher, they scanned and gave me the transport card valid for 24hours counting from the first used time. Attention, cause this ticket doesn't allow you to take trains, only metro and buses, but it's explained by the GVB employee. For instance, I needed to go from Amsterdam Central station to Amsterdam Sloterdijk. With the train, it would take me 5min to get there, but since my card didn't cover trains, only metros, I had to take a metro that took 1 hour to arrive there. I could have bought the train ticket... it would be around €2,40, but since I had the card and had time to spare, I took the metro. Besides all of that, you can have a good experience in Amsterdam with this card and I surely recommend it if you do not need to use trains because of a short time trip.
The public transport system is great, no delays and the 3-day tickets were much cheaper than they would've been elsewhere! But it was annoying that we had to walk to one of only 4 GVB-offices in Amsterdam to activate our tickets, since it was quite a walk. I think you can also buy those 3 day tickets on ticket machines at any train station.
The museum is amazing and provides a great overview of Van Gogh’s life and work as he slowly drifted to insanity. The way that other artists inspired his work is also explained elaborately by displaying his work alongside theirs. All tickets provided by the museum were sold out. Getyourguide saved the day!
Highly recommended. Landed in Schiphol airport, exchanged my voucher to the actual transport ticket in one of the public transport machines reading the QR code. The ticket is valid to take you from airport to central station and unlimited trips inside the city as well.
Good experience. The guide was very good and prepared. In a short time it is possible to have a general overview of historical facts.
