What people are saying about The Jordaan

It was a very nice experience! The guide was very helpful and shared a lots of information during the tour. With bikes it is much more to see than from a boat-canal trip. There are parts of Amsterdam that you will never see if you do not take a bike-tour!

Discovering the city with bikes was really nice. We did not get tired at all. Our guide was a very friendly and cute woman. I am suggesting to everyone.

David was great- very welcoming and made me feel at ease with the big city. Great stories go tell, and suggestions of yum food places to try.

Thank you for the experience. It was a great 3 hour ride! It was very fun and everyone was waiting if you're falling behind.
