  • Rating: 3 “Well organized trip which could do with some more explanation”

    Reviewed by Philipp from Berlin, Germany on August 4, 2014 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.


  • Rating: 4 “friendly and informative”

    Reviewed by Jemma from Newport, United Kingdom on June 18, 2014 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.


  • Rating: 5 “Beautiful, easy, relaxing, fun.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from New York, United States on July 9, 2013 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.

  • Rating: 5 “Super!”

    Reviewed by James from London, United Kingdom on May 24, 2013 Exceptional tour from the yellow bike guys. The bikes were sturdy and nice to ride, and peter our guide was just great. Full of information. Nice small group, we weren’t shepherded around in massive groups. Plenty of stops, no food and drink included in the tour price, but it’s not a strenuous activity so you’ll be fine.
