Our tour was great! It was an excellent way to see the city. I probably would not advise for someone who is not well experienced with cycling as Amsterdam is a busy city, but it is a great way to see a lot of sights.

Thank you for letting us rearrange the trip after the delay in our flight from the UK. And the tour was fantastic - Niels was excellent and I would highly recommend the tour, a fun way to see a city!

Fantastic cycling tour with Ingrid. Small group, nice pace, very inclusive and informative. And the tulip experience is great. Definitely recommend

Beautiful journey out to the countryside. Totally worth the time. Our guide was the nicest and very patient with all of our crazy questions.

A very good experience and even a better guide called Claudette! She was very patient and helpful with the nice spots to hang out. Gracias!
