Awful bikes ! No choice. I chose a 2 hour tour as I did not feel confident on my own, instead I felt I was a liability to myself and others, especially at busy junctions. Irish Carl did a great tour and was so nice but I did not enjoy it as I felt so worried by the bike. Why... More

A word of warning about the city tour, biking through Amsterdam traffic is not for the feint hearted. Only attempt if your a seasoned rider and do not take your kids along. Amsterdam traffic is very hectic and our group had numerous near misses including near getting backed over by a truck. the guide was completely oblivious to what was... More

I took the 4 hour countryside ride. After a short ferry ride we were in open filed with cows, sheep, fishing birds. Our guide, Gabbi, was excellent. We stopped for a nice lunch overlooking a lake. I think it is a much more relaxing bike ride than riding through the Amsterdam traffic on a busy Saturday

We took the 2 hour guided bicycle tour through Amsterdam. Talk about getting your legs pumping and heart thumping. Everyone gets matched to a bike and has the opportunity to adjust it and get the hang of it, there is a little safety talk and then you are off. The guide takes you along many of the must see sites... More

My boyfriend and I did the 3 hour city bike tour. It was a group of 10, including a family with a child probably around 9/10 years old. The tour itself was good because it took you through the most popular areas and gave you a bit of history on the city. My problem was with the family in our... More

The bike tour was good. The tour guide talked very soft which had me lean in to hear her. We had to dodge traffic, other bikers, and pedestrians.

The best way to get around Amsterdam is on bikes. We decided to go on the 3 hour tour through the city to see everything Amsterdam has to offer. A must do if you want to see all of Amsterdam in 3 hours! The only downside was that the seat on my bike was very uncomfortable. Other than that it... More

It was our first trip to Amsterdam and as always we had limited time to be there . We like to see as much of the city as we can and like to get a real feel for the place. We booked this tour from Australia and found the place easy to find, friendly and well run. The guide we... More

Bike is the only way to get around in Amsterdam. Yellow Bike were recommended to us & we were very happy with them. Our guide, Gabby, took it slowly for those who were not experienced riders. She was knowledgeable about the places we stopped and in between the stops, the course seemed to be designed to take us along quiet... More

As a group, we rented more than 20 bikes to go on a trip to Marken and Volendamm at the Markermeer, which is about 20 km from Amsterdam. However, 2 out of these 20+ bikes failed. One blew a tire and another one lost its chain - even though there is no gearshift. We could only continue our journey thanks... More
