5.0/5 stars
The guide was very informative and countryside so green.

Very good to see how all the water is controlled also nature being saved.

3.0/5 stars
Well organized trip which could do with some more explanation

Maybe it was due to the fact that we had a very entertaining guide on our city tour the day before, but I expected a little bit more than just riding through the dutch countryside and three 3 minute talks about a windmill and a pumping engine. It's a nice tour, but I think some more facts and stories would be well placed to improve this further.

friendly and informative

What a lovely guide with so much information to share both past and current on Amsterdam. The ride was a pleasure and everything was just right.

5.0/5 stars
Beautiful, easy, relaxing, fun.

Everything ran flawlessly. The meeting point is right in the middle of town (just by the main train station), they had everything ready to go for us and our guide Ralph was great the entire time. Biking in Holland is incredibly easy, as there are NO hills (like, none) and EVERYONE rides a bike there, so riding through the countryside was a blast, just leisurly cruising through all the picturesque little villages and fields bursting with tulips.
