Sumi was our guide and could not have asked for a better one. The small group size was perfect and the tour took us through so many beautiful and off the main canal areas. The tour company was very helpful and very well organized. Great option as a a single traveler.

I was a solo traveler to Amsterdam and wanted something to do with a group. I highly recommend taking a bike tour with this company. The young lady, our guide was very informative throughout the ride and answered any and all questions. The group of people I met were just as nice and we worked as a team. Please do not hesitate booking. The location was easy to find and no hassle upon arrival. No need to be an experienced. This was my first time riding a bike roadside…I felt safe!

We had eight in our group plus our guide. We had all different levels of riders and the stronger riders helped the weaker ones without being asked. Riding a bike in Amsterdam is a challenge and you must be aware of your surroundings. Once you start a movement you must keep going... the Amsterdam drivers and bike riders are very skillful and will work around you (avoid hitting you) as long as you keep moving in the direction you are going. Our group was made up of (2) people from South Africa, (2) from the US and (4) from the Netherlands. Our guide gave the tour in English. We took several breaks so you are not riding for 3 hours straight. We all bonded and had a lot of laughs and a great time! This is a tour which should not be attempted if it is raining... it would take all the fun out of it! Highly recommend!
