We had chosen this option as there was an option to book a German speaking tour. In fact, the tour was conducted in English, which was completely unproblematic in our case, the tour was nice and competent. In other cases, however, this could be problematic. Otherwise there is nothing to complain about. Definitely a worthwhile and recommendable undertaking, therefore 4 stars.
The privately booked tour (there were four of us) with Sebastian was very nice. Without being boring (even for our young adults) Sebastian guided us by bike with an interesting and informative tour of the lively Amsterdam. We non-cyclists have always felt safe, which is not to be taken for granted with this high level of cycling. Definitely again !!!
We really enjoyed the tour with our guide Carolina. We saw a lot of the city and got interesting information. Carolina was a great guide and we will remember the bike tour well.
