Hired 2 bikes for just a couple of hours on a sunny Saturday afternoon. The price for 2 bikes for 2 hours was just 6Euros each but the deposit was about 100-150 Euros. Luckily we'd just arrived so had the cash and ID on us (you need a passport/driving licence to leave behind the desk too) but this might make... More

Amsterdam was the final city of our trip, and we'd had wonderful experiences on each of our bike tours in other cities. Yellow Bike was not very organized, and although we arrived early, we were not helped until the very last minute before the tour, due to all the people checking in, renting bikes, etc. The English tour we'd booked...

One has to give a deposit of 50euros per person and an ID to hire a bike from here. We gave our ID and our credit card as we didn't have that much cash on us. Faithful staff. Located in the city centre. Reasonable rates. But the bike seats are a bit hard which will hurt your bums after cycling... More

The tour was very interesting and enabled me to rapidly see much of Amsterdam that isn't quite city center. The tour is about 3.5 hours and stops by most of the the major attractions as well as Amsterdam's largest park, where there is a drink/bathroom break. Maximum 12 people on the tour which is nice, unfortunately my tour, their were... More

If you go to Amsterdam and dont ride a bike is like go to Rome and dont see the pope. At the beggining the traffic looks a little confused but when you enter the spirit of it it turns in a real great experience

We hired the bikes and had a great time cycling round Amsterdam. It was €14 for the 2 biked for 2 hours as we took the optional insurance for theft. Well worth it although they do come with locks. We seen some more of the city because we had the bikes including Vondelpark.

Went on the "city tour" which culminated in a foray through the red light district where I saw rather more than I would liked to on Blood Street. Picked up some more welcome sights along the way and enjoyed the guide's introductions of such. It's not expensive and it was so much fun that I went on the country tour... More

We did the Big City Bike Tour through Amsterdam and it was a great experience! Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable about the sites and the history of the city. The bikes were in great condition, had adjustable seats, and were extremely easy to ride. If you're unfamiliar with city bike etiquette, I would recommend asking your guide... More

Amsterdam and riding bikes go hand in hand. Especially, after the first day when we were almost run over by local cyclists and their deadly stare. But we are in this great city and we had to do a tour of the city on bicycle. I hadn't ridden a bike in over 14 years and was a bit apprehensive but... More

Yellow bike took my ten year old son and I on the big tour of Amsterdam. I asked, since he is too young if they would 'edit' the tour and they did. The edited tour loses nothing of the city and I am really grateful that they obliged. They can't guarantee that they can do this for you, but if... More
