We are the class 3SW from the academic high school in Liestal, Switzerland. We took your bike-tour through Amsterdam last May and loved it. The wide span of general- and insider-knowledge combined with the wit of the guides made it a really fun experience. The bikes where in top condition and you managed to guide us on a safe journey...

My daughter and I took a graduation trip to Amsterdam in August and wanted to see a little of it from outside a bus or canal boat. The country tour with Joy Ride was an absolutely wonderful experience, even though it rained for half the tour. Allison is a great guide, with lots of enthusiasm and knowledge of the sights... More

We were a group of friends and had so much fun. it was so easy to reach everything, but pay attention before starting the ride and make sure you know how to, because if everywhere there is car traffic in Amsterdam you have bicycle...

When traveling, it can be difficult to find activities that you walk away from truly satisfied. I'm a basic traveler - I like seeing the sights, enjoying the people and trying to get a glimpse into the everyday life of a place. Too often I find myself getting sucked into tourist traps as a result of suggestions from well meaning... More

I really wanted to see the outskirts of Amsterdam This tour had great diversity. A husband and wife business. Meeting centrally we walked a short stroll to pick up our bikes, great bikes too, a pack on the back to hold your personal items, help adjusting the right bike to suit your height. The group had a short lesson with... More

My three young teens say this was the highlight of our visit to Amsterdam. We had a lot of fun biking from the city to the country and learning some history on the way. The bikes were really comfortable, the views were wonderful (forests, rivers, farms), and Allison was easygoing and made it very fun. We also enjoyed stopping at... More

This was our best tour in Amsterdam. It was great to see the countryside of Amsterdam and the ride was easy going (even if you're not a big bike rider). Allison was friendly and informative. Make sure you take snacks to eat along the way as there's no formal stop for lunch (though plenty of quick stops). The bikes were... More

We went out with Allison a week or so ago and it was seriously the best part of our trip. We did the CWC private tour and had the best time! Well worth the price, plus we got some great restaurant recommendations afterwards. This is a must do if you go to Amsterdam!

We can highly recommend Joy Ride Tours for biking in Amsterdam. We contacted the for a ride in the city with our two children of 10 and 12 - and they honestly replied that they do not take children on a tour in Amsterdam city, due to safety reasons - which other bike companies does. We went instead on a... More

Spending the afternoon with Allison guiding the country tour was a total joy. If you do only one thing in Amsterdam, do this bike tour. Everything about it was beyond beautiful.The history, the landscape, the cheese farm and Allison's company made for one of the best day's of a 30 day living experience in Amsterdam. I also appreciated that she... More
