Stop by one of the I amsterdam Visitor Information Centres for tour recommendations, maps, public transport cards, and calendars of events. The helpful staff can speak many languages and there are touch screens for looking up general information about visiting Amsterdam. In the summer, members of the I amsterdam Welcome Team can be found outside Centraal Station and Museumplein, where they help with basic inquiries and directions. Look for people wearing bright red T-shirts and caps with the "I amsterdam" logo.
