1] Walking

2] Tram

3] Canalbus HOHO if you love doing it over the water.

Forget the HOHO bus or any other bus tour, they cannot show the nicest part of city as that has narrow roads where the buses can't come.

I misread Eric's 3) and thought it was 'Cannabis HOHO' - gives 'trip' a whole new meaning :)

We used trams and got to conquer their system first time. Only thing to be sure not to forget is trams don't take cash for tickets - you need to use credit card which you can do either at a machine at the tram stop (the 1st one we tried didn't work though) or by the driver on the bus (he has a credit card machine next to his inside window).He then gives you a thin plastic paper ticket. Once on board don't forget to 'tap on, tap off'. Local maps will show you each tram route, we found routes 2 & 5 most convenient as we were staying in the Museums area.

Best way to explore Amsterdam is by walking! You might want to use a map on your phone.
