My husband and I took the Countryside Joyride tour yesterday, and agree it was our favorite part of our visit to the city. Our Guides, Allison and Yuri, were sweet, knowledgeable, and professional - we couldn't have expected anything better. I was a bit nervous going in, as I'm not athletic and 22K sounds pretty far with no backup! But the trip was easy, and if anything, we were sad to see it end. Since tour sizes are kept small, with a guide in front and back, it was easy to keep up. You never go very fast, and there are breaks every 20 minutes or so yo see points of interest, learn about sites, and take pictures. Allison was very good at making sure everyone had their pictures taken, what angle was good, etc. The cheese and clog stop was so funny, and a lovely break in the middle of the day. Bring water and a snack or lunch. Oh, and the bikes were new, comfortable, and super easy to ride. We would go again in a heartbeat.

me and my hubby enjoyed the countryside ride..it was a lovely weather on a sunday..alison is a knowlegeable n pleasant lady who shared alot of interesting stories with us at each stop. cheesefarm is a bonus though we didnt see the actual cheesemaking as its supposed to be sterile. we seldom cycle..but after doing 10 miles in e tulip fields last week..this 22km is not a problem..except riding thru e city especially on e return trip thru the sunday crowds is challenging..we were splitted by e traffic but thankfully there was always someone at e back with us when we went e wrong way.

This is a wonderful way to see the countryside and enjoy biking near Amsterdam with knowledgeable leaders and interesting attractions. My family took the one day countryside ride, including a visit to a cheese farm. We got to taste the wonderful aged cheese and watched them make future batches. The trip is well paced and good for all levels of rider. If you enjoy seeing a city and the surrounding countryside on two wheels then you should definitely make time in your travel plans for this adventure!

We did the countryside tour with Adam and had a great time. While I think the tour would benefit from a little less chatting and a lunchtime food stop, overall we still had a great time. The countryside is absolutely magnificent and Adam was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Highly recommended.
