      Amsterdam Mar 2, 2015 at 1:33 AM

      Our family holiday to Amsterdam is fast approaching, I have been researching public transport, however I have found the advice very confusing & it is now as clear as mud!
      We will be staying for 1 week, our hotel is on Sarphatistraat.
      We are 2 adults & 3 children-ages 15,11 & 10 years.
      We have already purchased a combi ticket to Keukenhof :)
      Please could anyone suggest what may be the best type of tickets for travel around the city.
      Also, do you know of a Keukenhof webcam? I am so excited about the trip & would love to see the flowers or at least the green shoots peeking!
