The experience was fantastic!! Really enjoyed this tour, it was fun, informative and seen things we wouldn't of seen/known there was.
Mikes Bikes.....This was the most enjoyable day, we had a fantastic guide knowable but a lot of fun I thoroughly recommend this to all, we are over 70's and had the most fabulous day trip...go book it now you will have the best time !!!
There were about 40 riders but you are divided into groups of 10 each with their own guide, very comfortable riding NO hills in Holland !
Other than the Rijks Museum this was our favourite day.
Please do yourself a favor and take this trip. This was the highlight of our whole trip. We had about 17 people on our tour. There were three separate tours that went out to the countryside. The people ranged from 25-65 and varying degrees of health. I would say if you can walk around a city for a day then you can probably do this tour as it's pretty flat. They took us through the city and then out to a windmill and onto the farm. The farmer is slightly odd but harmless. He hands out cheese to the ladies and makes fun of men. Slightly weird but I highly suggest getting something from him as it's the best souvenir that you'll have. The trip ended with another view of a windmill and a stop at a local biergarden. This will be a new tour next year from what they were saying. The craft beer was awesome with the view of the windmill is one I won't forget.
Our tour guide's name was Patrick and he was awesome. I can't say enough good things about Mike's Bike Tours and this particular tour. We did the city tour the next day too just because we had so much fun on this tour! The city tour is great but if you can only do one - do the countryside tour!.
My favourite tourist experience of my trip! Bicycling is a serious business here in Amsterdam, and getting a taste of this local way of life while seeing different parts of the city and country side was unreal. Girl Mike was our super cool guide who was all lively and good vibes making for a great tour - Thank you!
This was my favorite tour of our whole 2-week trip! Our guide Aaron and the guys in the shop were really fun to be around. Aaron was charismatic, knowledgeable and clearly loves what he does, which are great assets to have as a tour guide. The bike ride was fun and the views were awesome. When we got to the cheese and clog farm, the dairy farmer there was hilarious and made the tour of the farm engaging and interesting. Knowing the tour was a whole 4 hours I was a bit apprehensive, thinking that would be too long for a single tour, but honestly the time flew by and it was fun the entire time! Thanks for the awesome day :D
Lil Mike our guide and the staff were excellent. The tour made me fall in love with this venue for touring the other cities on my 5 week European adventure
This tour was great. A nice leisurely ride on mostly flat surfaces. The sites we saw were great and the staff at Mikes Bike were very helpful and courteous. I definitely recommend.
This tour made me fall in love with the city. Cheese and clog farm was very interesting as well. Love our tour guide-very funny, nice, and accommodating!
This tour did not disappoint!!! Totally enjoyed the Countryside tour. We cycled along the Amstel River taking in the spectacular sights and visited a Cheese farm with a very entertaining farmer. It was my favorite stop on the tour. Though the tour was 4 1/2 hours , our guide, Mathias, paced us so well, we didn't feel rushed or tired. He was an excellent tour guide, engaged with the group, made us feel capable,safe and kept us interested with his knowledge of the city and it's history. This is a must do when in Amsterdam..
Gosh, this bike tour was wonderful! It lasted over 3 hours....and our guide was fantastic Sam. I think he said we cycled 30 kilometers....but most of it was level country roads alongside the river. I'm 65, and did OK, so if you are worried about the distance....don't!
What an amazing experience. Easy and comfortable ride in the countryside. Energetic and knowledgable tourguide. Cheese tasting a wow. Highly recommended.
It was a very fun filled tour of the countryside around Amsterdam highly recommended as a way to escape the countryside
Highly recommend. Bike tour was a wonderful way to see the city, get some exercise, and enjoy the weather. Mike's bike tours was helpful and expert in service!
The tour was great. We had some difficulty navigating through the locals in Amsterdam and a flat tire before reaching the countryside, but our guide, Diego, did a great job of getting us all through it. The ride's most difficult parts related to high winds and local traffic. The views were wonderful even with a little rain, the cheese/clog farmer was amusing, and the cheese was delicious. I would suggest bringing your own water or buying one before leave from the Mike's Shop 1 and snacks as 4 hours can be a while without food.
My favorite experience of the 3 weeks I spent in Europe! Tour guide, Pete, was informative, funny, and attentive. Was a little anxious I wouldn't be able to cycle for 4 hours considering I am 43, out of shape, and hadn't bicycled in about 3 years also anxious that it might be too much for my 12 year old. Before leaving, Pete gave a safety overview and offered any help we needed in making adjustments to our bikes. He reassured us that he would pull us from the tour and refund our money if he didn't think we were capable of handling it. I felt completely comfortable and safe under his judgment and guidance. The cheese and clog making demonstrations were interesting and offered a refreshing break just when one was needed. My daughter and I had a blast! It was a nice break from plane, train, taxi, and bus rides!
Highly recommended. Our guide Karl was a hoot and the tour itself was outstanding. Anyone in reasonably decent shape should be able to enjoy the ride which goes through absolutley beautiful country.
Absolutely brilliant! Didn't stop smiling for 4 hours!
A really wonderful tour . We are not seasoned cyclists in fact I've been out on my bike since we got back - as it's given me the bug to start riding! We managed well, it was a little tiring towards the middle, but then after the visit to the farm, we were energised and ready to ride again.
Great bikes - very comfortable and a bit of knowedge about how to work the gears etc.
Some hairy moments in the town - it's hard to cycle round a city with so many bikes, pedestrians, cars and trams - but actually being part of a group makes it a bit easier. We had no clue where we had right of way, so maybe a little bit of knowledge about that would have been helpful! ha! But nobody had any accidents - so that was good
The cheese and clog factory was lovely and very authentic - nice people.
The Countryside was lovely, and we even saw some baby deer.
The windmill was also fab to see.
our tour guide was really good, and rode in clogs which was impressive!!!
100 worth the money and the time.
One small tip - Take some fruit and maybe some rolls- you get cheese tasting in the factory, but it's 12-4 and nowhere to buy lunch. We had our rolls with the cheese, and also take a drink too!
There is a spar shop near the bike shop.
I highly recommend doing this tour. Sam was an awesome guide. Riding a bike in Amsterdam is an experience in itself but the countryside is a treat. Thanks Sam. Bob and Cindy
Daniel was great. It was the best tour to end our trip. Amsterdam is an overwhelming city. It was nice to get 4 hours of fresh air with beautiful scenery along the Amstel River. Loved it! Bought some yummy cheese to bring home too.
This was a great way to get out on a bike in Amsterdam. Our guide Daniel was AWESOME and made sure everyone on our tour was safe and having a good time. You do need to be fairly comfortable on a bike for this ride as there is some riding in traffic in busy Amsterdam before you get out to the countryside..... Cheese/Clog factory was interesting and a nice stop for a rest and lunch. bring your own
Highly recommend if you want to get out in the fresh air away from the bustling city for a few hours.
Awesome bike tour with girl Mike and owner Mike. It was a small group and we got really lucky with the weather, but overall the tour was a lot of fun. We saw 3 windmills, cheese farm and clog making demonstration and ended the tour at a brewery I don't know if this is always the case, or just because it was a small group.
This was a fantastic experience! First off, I haven't rode a bike in like 15 years so that was a concern of mine. Our guide and the bike company took time to make sure that I was on a proper bike, and also that I was comfortable before going out. Our guide also stated that at any time if she felt I was not riding safely she would send me back, and did appreciate that. All in all, I ended up doing well and having a wonderful experience. Seeing Amsterdam on a bike is how it is meant to be seen I think. The city riding was a bit more challenging, especially for this novice, but if I could do it, I think anyone could. Once you were out of the city, the path was a nice quiet path along the river. We rode to a windmill and then to a cheese farm. The farmer was very welcoming and funny and the cheese was delicious. After we took another side tour to a brewery in a windmill since our group was very small, only 3 people the last tour of the season in November 2016. It was a wonderful day that I still talk about. I would definitey recommend this experience.
Great way to see the city and enjoy fresh, lush countryside. Tour guide was extremely friendly and easy to talk to! Learned while having fun and seeing sights.
