What people are saying about Amsterdam

Great experience and very friendly host!

The whole event was great from the beginning to the end. Bart, the owner of the scooters first explained us the possible five routes and gave some recommendations, while having a cup of coffee. Afterwards we had a short "training session" on the yard to make sure that we understood how to operate the scooters and felt safe driving them. When everything was looking good we left off to our tour, which was really nice: We could explore the beautiful landscape in our own pace and pause whenever we wanted. To not get lost we had gotten a map of the route and there were guiding arrow stickers at every lamp post or traffic sign where it makes sense (i.e. when the road reaches a crossroad or you have to leave the current road). After we arrived back we had another cup of coffee and some nice words with Bart, the owner. We can definitely recommend this activity to anyone who would like to explore the beautiful countryside, but does not like to do such a long trip (about 40-50 km) by bike.

Tulips wonderful but the tour to the cheese & windmills had issues

Guide was very nice but not very informative - keep asking us if we had questions. He should have had a plan in place and telling us about where we were going and about Amsterdam, etc. Cheese place quick and nice however it is a place they stop so you will spend money. The windmill village had this same type of cheese demonstration. Not enough time in the windmills to visit them all and we did not even get to see the wooden shoe maker because our guide asked us to wait until the end and then 3 buses showed up and he said you can wait but it will be long wait now and suggested we not. When we first arrived at the village there was no one at the wooden shoe demo and no reason for us to have missed it. Keukenhof was wonderful and we did have enough time there.

Nice old school tour where you are treated as individuals

Cherry, our guide and tour operator was very lively and informative. Not electronic devices to plug your head into, just good old fashioned human interaction. Captain Jack on the canal tour was hilarious. There was no herding people into one retail shop after another that seems to be the norm now. It was like going on a trip with a large group of friends. You could join the activities or you could do your own thing. If you want to be treated like a person and not cattle, this could be the tour for you

It was super! But not enough time for Volendam.

We really liked the tour! Comfortable bus, funny and informative guide. The only thing we didn't like was lack of free time in Volendam. 30 minutes are terribly not enough for this charming place! Especially if you want not just to explore the village but also grab some food. And give a try for russian language. There are quite a lot of us visiting your country.

Excellent value for money. Amazing experience!

The tour was very well organised. We had enough time in each location to have some rest and buy some souvenirs. The tour guide (Desiree) was very interactive and provided some interesting overview of each place we visited. I can recommend this trip to anyone who is interested to see a little bit of Dutch countryside.
