This rickshaw tour is amazing. The guide is very friendly and gives a close view of the entire city.
We landed in Amsterdam at about noon and thought a Rickshaw ride would be a great start to see the city. Jan was great.....shortly after we landed he called with a weather update. Wanted us to delay the ride because storms were coming. We agreed to a two hour delay. Jan called back again with a weather update and wanted us to Starr earlier. It was great. He picked us up and the weather held out for the whole tour. He gave us the best introduction to Amsterdam one could ask for. Very knowledgeable and a superb tour guide. Would recommend this is the best way to start off a visit to Amsterdam. Jan deserves five stars!
My husband and I had a great time on our tour with Jan. He is very knowledgeable about each part of the city he took us to and showed us places we'd never seen in previous trips to Amsterdam. We particularly enjoyed the Amstel river views and the Jewish quarter. We'd definitely tour with Jan again!
We enjoyed a wonderful 2 1/2 Rickshaw Tour with Jan's Fietstaxi. Jan was so friendly and informative. After seeing the highlights of Amsterdam, Jan asked us what we were interested in and he went out of his way to expand on our interests. He brought us to the National Holocaust Memorial Museum where we toured the building while he explained what it was like for the Jewish people living in Amsterdam and their fate. It was very sad, but we were glad we went. This was a wonderful way to see Amsterdam and we were fortunate to have Jan as our guide. Excellent tour, excellent guide. Thank you Jan.
