What a great bicycle tour! We went on several throughout our stay in Scandinavia but this was by far the best! Allison was fantastic -- she knows her adopted home very well -- and guided us safely through the city and out into the countryside and to the clog and cheese maker. She was funny and accommodating and loves to... More

Sean, the tour guide, is a legend! He knows so much about Amsterdam & Netherlands you will be left wanting to know more. He is always available to answer questions and his first priority is that you enjoy your tour and get the most out of it. A truly enjoyable and informative experience. I would highly recommend this to anybody.... More

This is a great way to see Amsterdam and explore a bit of the country side. Sean is a fantastic guide and extremely knowledgeable about the city. We absolutely enjoyed the tour and the thorough education of Amsterdam. Make sure to bring water, lunch, and layers.

This is the first time I have done a bicycle tour anywhere and this experience touring with Allison, co-owner, with her husband Sean, has set an experience that I don't believe can be surpassed. It is as described by the other reviews. I think it is important that you are comfortable on a bike as the "busy-ness" of biking in... More

We had a great time riding around Amsterdam and into the country side with Joy Ride Tours. The wait at the cheese clog place is a bit longer than it needs to be, but otherwise, it was a great time!

Our guide is very knowledgable about all things Netherlands. The bicycles given were very comfortable. We rode the bicycles for over 4 hours effortlessly. The start of the tour was very enjoyable until our group were dragged down by the other 4 riders. We kept on stopping every few minutes just to wait for them to take pictures. The guide... More

We booked a bike tour in advance for our first morning in Amsterdam. We were lucky as our group was only made up of 6 people. Simon was excellent. His knowledge of Amsterdam and the Netherlands was second to none. The bikes were all equipped and comfortable, considering we rode for 4 hours I didn't feel it afterwards at all!... More

We went on the country ride out to the cheese and clog farm. I can't say enough about how nice Alison was and so full of great information not only on the tour, but on what to do after it. She couldn't have been more helpful. The bikes were in great shape, but had a different center of gravity that... More
