This was definitely one of the best days we had in Amsterdam! Cycling is an all time classic there, but I would recommend this trip for the fact that it gets you out of the hectic city and out in the fresh air for a different view of the area. Cycling through the city is rather stressful you still have to cycle through it to get out!, but once you hit the countryside it's just beautiful and so relaxing. The paths are all flat, so you don't need to be a pro. Our guide was fantastic, really friendly and knowledgeable about the area.

This was a great tour! My husband and I really enjoyed it. It's very interesting to see other things in the area other than Amsterdam. It was an easy ride - most of it was flat. The only complaint I had was the lunch. The food was good. I ordered tomato soup and some toasties. I got the tomato soup right away but didn't get the toasties until about 5 minutes before it was time to leave. We kept reminding the waitress that I was missing part of my order but it took forever to get it. But the countryside is beautiful - especially the homes with the canals running in front of them. Those were in the small village where we ate lunch.

Wonderful tour that takes you out of bustling Amsterdam into the beautiful quiet countryside. Our guide Carolyn was very helpful and informative. This tour is paced very well with as many stops as you need along the way, you will cycle through the lovely Dutch countryside and through a number of very quaint villages with a lunch stop at a seaside village. I had not ridden a bike for many years but found it was not a problem with the four hours passing by very quickly. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour.

The only downside to this tour was the rain that hit half way through. If the company could invest in some better rain gear it would be helpful on days like this. It might be a good idea to warn people to bring their own. Luckily we were inside having lunch during the worst of the downpour. The guide knew the route and kept an eye on those who fell behind. An easy ride and worth the money. .

Excellent tour. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. The tour included parts of riding through the city on the way to the countryside. The countryside was beautiful! We rode by old windmills, farms and through small villages. We also stopped at great little restaurant for lunch.

We loved our guide. My husband had a flat tire. No problem. He (guide) did not flinch...just patched it and we rode on. It was a beautiful ride and lunch at the pub in the village was fun. Yes...if you're considering it do it. We are comfortable on bikes but there were a few people who had not been on a bike for years. They were a little shaky but I'm positive they loved it too.

We really enjoyed seeing another side of the Netherlands. The bike tour was relaxed. We saw several charming villages. The lunch stop was great; a very picturesque inn with a nice view of the water. The guide was friendly and knowledgable. Well worth the price!
