My husband and I were excited to be taking a Joyride but were concerned about riding in the city of Amsterdam. Our tour leader, Allison tried in every way to prepare us for busy corners, etc. Riding outside of the city was lots of fun and we saw some beautiful countryside. There were nine of us on today's tour and... More

We were very lucky to have an amazing sunny day when we took this tour. We joined a group of about 15 and we think the size was perfect. Our guide was very nice and very attentive, and she is really good with her history - she makes the tour very interesting, and you can really see that she enjoys... More

My hubby and I joined a bunch of folks on this bike ride. To be honest, we were a bit apprehensive with the idea of riding a bike in or near Amsterdam where bikes and cars seem to share the space and do so in such a coordinated manner that it seemed like an experience one could have after a...

We had a fantastic bike tour with Alison. It was a great way to get outside of Amsterdam & see the beautiful countryside. The cycling was easy and 90% on little bike paths or cycle lanes. We saw another side of Amsterdam by stopping at a windmill, a farm making cheese & clogs & seeing the dyke system up close.... More

My 16 year old son and myself decided to take a private bike tour with Joy Ride Tours based on recommendations we found on the internet and we absolutely loved it. Sean was an excellent host and guide giving us diverse informations and insights on many different topics related to Amsterdam and it's history and development. Sean is very knowledgeable... More

Bike riding is HUGE in Amsterdam & it was great to see the rhythm & flow of the riders everywhere. I would recommend to add this to... More

Two years ago we had booked a private tour with Joy Ride only to have it cancelled due to severe weather. Apparently ours was one of only two tours they had ever cancelled in their company history. Our travel schedule did not allow us time to re-schedule so we vowed to return to Amsterdam and do the tour some day.... More

My husband, daughter and I took the Country Tour with Allison and had a great time. Allison was super fun, informative, laid back and added to pleasure of the ride. The ride was truly scenic and relaxing from the Vondelpark to the Amsterdam forest to the Amstel river. Despite some reviewers saying the cheese and clog farm being too touristy,... More

My daughter and I did the country tour with Sean and loved it. He is very knowledgeable. We learned a lot about Amsterdam, the Netherlands and all the places we visited. Such a wonderful way to see the area and get out into the countryside a bit. We even rode home in some rain, which made us feel like real... More

Allison and Sean are fantastic! The tour itself is great, but afterwards we used the map and "75 Best things to do in Amsterdam" list for the rest of the trip as well. Get to see the city and countryside of Amsterdam; definitely recommend.
