This tour was one of the highlights of my trip to Amsterdam! Red was a very knowledgeable guide and also cracked some good jokes along the way. Three hours seems like a long ride but time went by so quickly! We also had a little break where we enjoyed a beer with everyone on the tour. I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about Amsterdam with the typical experience of riding a bike in the city.

I recommend this 3h tour. Our guide (Mona) was great and being with a small group (8 pers) makes it very nice. We had an awful weather with heavy rain the whole time but our guide could not do anything about that. I wish I can redo the tour with a dry weather.

Veronica was a wonderful guide with lots of knowledge. Great fun. She even arranged a rainbow halfway the tour. Amazing!

We had an amazing tour with Thijs, he was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We had a great time :)

Excellent tour…Rad was extremely helpful and informative. Pace was perfect.
