What You Can Expect
This was a fun tour in the city. Not for the skittish. Riding through Amsterdam is pretty chaotic and dangerous at times. A great way to see a lot of areas of the city in a short amount of time. Our guide had a lot of interesting commentary on the sites.
If I could give this tour 10 stars, I would. Sean was a wonderful tour guide and this was truly a bucket list experience.
Very experienced guide . Friendly and courteous and knowledgable about the history , culture and habits of Amsterdam. Would recommend my tour guide Sean .
Our bike tour of Amsterdam was an excellent way of seeing this most bike friendly of cities.
Pete is a great guide and inspired confidence and soon we were pedalling along and negotiating the the city almost like locals .
It was great to see the very different neighbourhoods and the beautiful historic areas contrasted with the ultra modern.
The trip on the ferry was good fun and the visit to the dijks and other defensives very informative.
Overall the tour is great value and easy for the less experienced and confident cyclist and to be recommended to all visitors who want to see the less touristy parts of Amsterdam.
Pete is a mine of knowledge about the city and provides a great tour off the beaten path.
Loved our trip through and out of the city! Sunday cycling at its best!
I was the only traveler who signed up, but he still ran the tour and personalized it to what I wanted to see and do. It was great.
We thoroughly enjoyed this bike tour. Highly recommended if you want to see it from a locals perspective. The only touristy area we biked through was through the Rijksmuseum, but that on its own, is a unique experience when biking through it! Our guide was great, he gave us honest opinions on what places to see and what not to see. After our tour, he even walked us to some of the cafes/restaurants he frequented.
Our guide, Shawn, was wonderful. We learned so much history about the beautiful city of Amsterdam in only 3 hours! Landmarks, attractions, museums, even bars and restaurants! He caters to your cycling experience, so don't think you have to be a pro on the bike! Our tour showed us the non touristy places, which resulted in a memorable Birthday! I would recommend this to everyone. Book this tour early on in your trip, so you really get to know Amsterdam!
Bike riding in and around Amsterdam is quite the experience ... Not for the faint of heart lol. We biked over 26 km in three hours, but all on flat ground so it was no problem. Donavan took us to places we would not have otherwise seen on our vacation which was fantastic. The best part of the trip was the actual experience of just bike riding in his beautiful country. Only downside was we wish the guide had more knowledge/ history information to share.
He sent the map of where we went and pictures following our trip. That was a very nice surprise. We recommend you take this tour.
The tour guide was an American who recently moved to Amsterdam and who gave little to no information about the history or areas where we rode. The bikes rented were included but they were horribly damaged and dirty and my brakes did not work well at all. I would definitely not recommend this tour.
