Great way to see and learn about the city of Amsterdam. You have to be alert on the bike at all times due to volumes of people and transport along the way but I loved every minute of the experience and would recommend Mike's bike tour to all!
Although there were some areas of the city that were difficult to manuever through, we all still managed and had a fantastic time. We didn't lose anyone, which was amazing. Our tour guide Teo was really fun and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed all his personal stories about his life and experiences living in Amsterdam. We were fortunate to have Teo accompany us again for our tour of the countryside the following day. I would highly recommend this tour, as well as the countryside tour.
Our tour guide, David, was amazing! I am sure that all of your tour guides are great, but there was a group of 6 of us traveling together from Pennsylvania and we all thought David was fantastic - he made the tour! We enjoyed traveling around like a true local from Amsterdam and hearing about your beautiful city. David brought up so many interesting things that we would not have known had he not pointed them out to us. I will recommend everyone that is visiting Amsterdam to use Mike's Bike Tours & if possible to ask for David!
This should be an absolute must for anyone visiting Amsterdam. We had a fantastic tour guide, Patrick and we saw the entire city and learned more about the culture and history than from the on/off bus. This tour made our trip!
The tour was a really amazing way to see the city and to see how the natives get around on bikes. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. We learnt a lot. He also made sure nobody was left behind and that everybody was safe. The ride was at an easy relaxed pace. I would recommend this tour wholeheartedly.
