Excellent tour, fun, insightful, quirky. Was a very quick day. Got to see lots of Amsterdam that I would otherwise have never had the chance to see. I was pretty tired by the end of it but during the tour I didn't feel tired during it as Amsterdam is very flat so not hills to cycle up. Not a tour... More

The day we had our tour it rained all day. The company owner offered to reimburse us if we didn't want to go. We still went and so did everyone else that signed up. They provided us with special ponchos for biking that kept us pretty dry. My feet were still soaked. Even though it rained we had a GREAT... More

The day you have your Joy Ride Tour will be the best day of your trip. We were in Amsterdam for three days before departing on a Celebrity Cruise, and we wanted to experience the Netherlands on bikes. After researching several tour companies, we decided that Joy Ride Tours was the best option with the tour covering exactly what we... More

Joy Ride does it right. We had a fabulous tour with Antoine. He was most enthusiastic and dramatic, which really added to the tour. The tour was very well organized, the bikes were well maintained and everthing was ready for us to begin our tour. Antoine even handled a flat tire in the middle of the tour with no issues.... More

The Joy Ride Tours deserve their name. We participated in their bike tour from Amsterdam into the countryside. Although the weather wasn't optimal, our guide, Antoine, brought his A game. He lavished us with historical anecdotes, murder stories and entertaining warnings. His knowledge of history, coupled with his knack for dramatic flair, made the tour thoroughly enjoyable. He gave us... More

We loved our city bike tour with Joy Ride Tours. The bikes were in excellent condition and the guide (Antoine) was great and made the ride really fun. He had an art history/history background and a thorough knowledge of Amsterdam and its surroundings and shared that knowledge with us. While part of the ride was in the city, the majority... More

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
