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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

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.
