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.

My husband and I had such a fabulous tour today with Sean. He was so knowledgeable about the city and it's history, the bikes were new and top of the line and we rode through Amsterdam neighborhoods that were off the beaten path. Our tour was 3-4 hours and we were having such a great time that we spent an... More

While walking through Vondelpark we had a chance to meet Sean (owner) of Joy Ride Tours as they were on a brief stop in the park. We lucked out that they had a cancellation for the 19th of July, so we quickly booked a city tour for the 19th via their web site. Quite simply this was one of the... More

Taking a tour with Allison was like meeting up with one of your favorite college friends for the day. She was engaging with all of us and was very easy to hang out with. The ride was great-we got to see parts of the city we wouldn't have otherwise. The cheese from the farm is delicious. Our tour was definitely... More

We did the tour with Allison the day after we landed. Getting outside the city, and seeing great views. I loved her passion and fabulous informative stuff of the city. I have been to Amsterdam proper many times, but this showed us a new side. This is a must. She made it so much fun, and is more than happy... More

We spent 5 hours with Sean who owns and runs the company with his wife. No need to worry if you have not been on a bicycle in some years, the land is mostly flat and there is very little time spent in the city centre. You cycle through parks, forests and into the country, spend an enjoyable half an... More

Allison is the greatest guide in all of Amsterdam. The ride is pretty easy thanks to the premium Electra bikes. You will get to go see the Amsterdam you find on post cards, namely windmills, and the countryside. It is a refreshing break from the busy city, and you will learn a bit about Amsterdams history and rich culture. Recommended... More

My wife and I - 30ish adults - took this tour on a lovely Saturday afternoon with Allison, one of the owners of the company. It was a great tour from start to finish. Pros: - It was a leisurely paced ride, with ample stops for history, discussion, or just for her to show us something really cool. - We... More

My husband and did the Cheese, Clogs and Windmills tour this week, on our first ever trip to Amsterdam. We had an awesome time. It was such a great way to see the city (particularly the canals) and then some of the countryside. Our guide (Shaun) was knowledgable and friendly - and we were all encouraged to ask questions and... More

A gentle ride through city and country, with a great tour guide. Alison was a fabulous host, humorous and informative! Cycling through Vondelpark and the clog and cheese farm was a real highlight. A great way to experience Amsterdam beyond the inner city.
