Had an amazing day out with Alison & fellow bikers. Found Joy Ride on TA so decided to book as we are keen riders, we booked in advance on-line. Run by a really lovely couple who are really friendly & full of information about Amsterdam I think we did around 20k in & around the city, via the Vondelpark &... More

My sister and I absolutely loved this tour. Allison was so informative and articulate when talking about Amsterdam's canal's, dam's and history. If you had a question, Allison had the answer. I don't consider myself fit but I found the 23 km bike ride easy. The bikes are brand new and easy to use. About 10% of the tour is... More

We rode thru Amsterdam and it's outskirts, Allison did a great job explaining everything and was patient with our small group of 4. I am not as fit as I use to be but was able to stay with the group. We loved the fact that it was a great day to ride and learned a lot about the city.... More

We did this tour in September. It obviously has to rank up there as the best tour to do in Amsterdam. Things started off fine, but I happened to stop to take a photo of the statue of Vondell in Vondell park and when I came back around 20 seconds later the group was long gone. The park was full...

Joy Ride Bike Tours give you a great way to see the city the way the locals do: by bike. It can be a little harrowing at first, but once you race through a couple of intersections all fears of a collision are gone; just remember to use your bell in the pedestrian areas. My wife and I did our... More

Had a great time on this tour. My husband and I went in May for my birthday. It was a little touristy - but we loved the whole bike ride and seeing the landscapes! Our tour guide was great - and gave us lots of info. We saw the houseboats and a canal lock also. I suggested bringing a sandwich... More

We have found that the best way to experience a city is to take advantage of a bike tour. We chose Joy Ride Tours in Amsterdam and booked the Windmills, Clogs and Cheese tour that takes you outside the city. It was fantastic! The tour was one of the highlights of our time in Amsterdam (and that is saying a... More

We were travelling through Amsterdam for 3 days and had booked in with Joy Ride on our first day for the Windmills, Cheese and Clogs tour, and without doubt it was the highlight. Our tour guide was Allison, she was absolutely lovely and provided insightful commentary throughout the day. She also provided us with heaps of recommendations for restaurants and... More

A group of us in Amsterdam for a wedding on a joy ride tour. What fun! The guide managed to cater for a variety of skill levels in bike riding by interspersing the rides with story telling and photo opportunities. I saw a different side to Amsterdam, even venturing out not the surrounding countryside. Yes there are cows within an... More
