Such a great way to see Amsterdam, our guide was lovely, i would advise to do this on the first day you arrive in Amsterdam, that way you would learn all the cycling rules , also know the layout of the city and then feel confident to hire your own bike for the rest of your stay. Our guide was really noce and she took us to all the tourist spots, really enjoyable
Fantastic little tour, riding through the streets if Ansterdam. Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. Highly recommended
Excellant morning spent bike riding round Dam! Highly recommend this tour, i'm not a confident bike rider and my friend hadn't been on a bike for over 20 years but we both managed it fine quite leisurely so don't worry. We got to see lots of things that we probably wouldn't have done on our own espaecially as it was our first time in Amsterdam.
Excellent tour! Very well-organized with getting everyone outfitted with a bike, and the guide set a good pace for the ride with a number of stops to point out the sights. This is a good tour to take on your first day in Amsterdam to get a feel for the city and to get some ideas for what other things you'd like to do while you're there.
Well I loved this as I cycle everyday at home. The weather was just perfect and our guide was lovely. We covered a lot of ground and saw lots of places and of course in Amsterdam the bike is "King". A great way to see the city. The fact that the group was small made it more enjoyable and we did the 3 hour afternoon cycle. it was not taxing as the terrain is flat and not all difficult. So to anyone out there "Go for it" and enjoy
My boyfriend and I did this tour in January 2014. Our guide was very informative and reliable and at every stop encouraged the group to ask questions for more info on the history of the different places we visited. Our group included a mother and young son and, singles in their 20s and 30s. We were able to test the bikes for comfort before setting out, which were very good. Cycling through Amsterdam is a great experience, sure you dodge people at every turn but you certainly aren't alone and as with most things in this Dutch city, tolerance prevails. There is of course no need to take a tour- it's an easy city to navigate and you may well stumble across a variety of interesting places however, if you are on a short trip or just want to kill a few hours this is an excellent way to do it. I'm not particularly a fan of 'tours' - this felt more like having my own map reader who could also tell me about the places I was at if I wanted. When the group asked no questions we moved on again quickly - for us this was perfect!
It was freezing cold on the day of our trip and I wanted to cancel, but was glad that I didn't. Once on the bike it was not cold! It gave me an overview of Amsterdam and it was especially nice to drive through the Rijksmuseum. If I could turn back the clock, I would do this tour on the day I arrive as it gave me a good overview of everything so that I could decide to which of the areas I want to go back to. It was easy to cycle and you can do this even if you are not fit at all.
I loved this trip. We were escorted beautifully through the streets of Amsterdam by our young, handsome, knowledgable guide, who is studying history at the University.
The Streets of Amsterdam are filled with a succession of trams, buses, vans and of course bicycles.
How people manage to avoid each other is a miracle, but we did.
Our guide gave us just enough information to retain, not too much to remember, but if someone asked a question, he knew the answer.
The hot chocolate in the cafe in the park was a highlight, and museum square with the ice skating rink.
For me, this is a great way to see the city, as we nipped down streets that other traffic could not get down.
Cycle helmets are not compulsory, even drivers of mopeds don't wear helmets.
If it is wet, the company supplies yellow capes to wear, and all bikes have one brake on the handlebars as well as the back peddling, which I found surprisingly easy. Oh and a bell is handy.
Go on do it, have fun, we did.
The tour guide was very nice lady and told history at about 8 brief stops. We were in many non traffic areas which made it easy.
Great way to see the city. We had a very pleasant October day that was sunny and around 60 degrees. Guide was very good and was from Amsterdam so she was very knowledgeable about the city. I am glad that I decided to do this and I would recommend it. Bikes were solid and comfortable.
