Fantastic way to see the suburban Amsterdam! Where and how people live. Our guide was the owner of the company and took us to a great bakery and on a ferry to another island. Very informative and fun!

Amsterdam is truely a city of bikes, and there's no better way to see it than by bike. Most bike lanes are completely seperate from city streets and the ubiquotous trams. But, without a guide, you'd miss so much. This was a great way to see the highlites and learn a bit about the present and past of Amsterdam. Bikes are comfortable, safe, and easy to ride. There are no hills to climb, so anyone can take advantage of this delightful tour.

Great bike tour of the central and northern parts of this fascinating city.
The highly knowledgeable guide provided much insight about the history
and character of the city. The visit to neighborhoods north of the city was
especially interesting. A very enjoyable bike tour.

Tour guide was amazing! He gave me a one-on-one tour off areas of Amsterdam and nearby areas that I would normally not have encountered. We visited parks, nearby towns, and areas within Amsterdam that are not normally seen by tourists. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who likes to ride bikes and explore beyond the touristy areas.

This was a great adventure. We enjoyed our bike ride through the city while learning about bicycle riding and the rules. The guide was extremely helpful. We are going back with friends and will take this tour.

Had a great time on this tour. Ended up with a beautiful fall day. Sean was a great guide and was very knowledgeable about Amsterdam. I saw a lot I would of never saw otherwise and getting around on a bike like most people in Amsterdam was great.

On this Saturday morning I was the only client for my guide, Arthur, who turned it to a private tour. Being a Saturday, the bike traffic was less which can be quite hectic. It also provided a larger tour of the city that a walking tour could not provide.

Sean was a great guide and made the day very enjoyable. We ended up being the only 2 people on the tour which was awesome. It was a rainy day but we still were able to see all the sites and have a great ride! We learned a lot of history and also passed/saw a number of places to come back to later in the day. A little pit stop for coffee and goat petting was perfect : We would absolutely recommend Sean and this tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Sean, the owner of Urban Adventures, is GREAT. We had a great time biking around town and would recommend this tour to others. Check out UA's website for more tours. We also did the Food Tour with Sean and that was awesome.

This was a small group tour however it turned out to be just my husband and I. Our tour guide took us over to the north side via a ferry and we rode around some very beautiful places where only the locals tend to go. A must when in Amsterdam

Sean was a great guide. By pure luck, I was also the only person on the tour, which made it all the more worthwhile. A private guide to an entirely new city is a truly amazing experience. I will definitely consider contacting this tour guide, or participating in similar tours in other cities in the future.

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.

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.

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!

Very fun tour, but you may be sore the next day. This tour really allowed me to see the rest of Amsterdam, places where tourists don't visit. I felt very Dutch biking through the rain, and truly enjoyed the sights.

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.


1 star rating: I do not recommend this

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.
