The trams in Amsterdam is so efficient and all on time, it covers most of the areas and you will sure to find a tram station within 800 metres from any place you at, rather buy a day ticket

The GVB is an excellent source of transportation with in Amsterdam. We used the buses and trams to get around the city. The only thing that would have made it better was if they had boats as well.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
