This tour totally exceeded my expectation. I joined the tour alone but enjoyed myself tremendously. The tour guide is helpful, caring and informative. She even shared some stropwafels with us!

“It's just like riding a bike!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2011

What could possibly go wrong?!

10 ladies on a Hen Weekend. in Amsterdam. On bicycles. Hungover. On a Sunday!?!

Well, absolutely nothing went wrong and we had the best day a girl could have on two wheels ; )

When we heard the tour was going to be approx. 3-4 hours long, we didn't think it was possible, but the day flew and we got to see some fantastic sights that you wouldn't get to see by car or by bus.

Sean was particularly patient with is all given our very short attention span - we even managed to learn a few facts about beautiful Amsterdam!

No need to bring provisions as we stopped at "Vleminckx Sausmeesters" - best chips evvvver and the "Brouwerij ‘t IJ" Brewery to sample some local beers.

We all had a super fun day and would highly recommend Joy Ride Day Tours for any occasion as we're sure Sean knows exactly how to tailor-make it for your theme!!

Well done and thanks again for a great trip around the city!

“Great Insights into the City of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2011

We had a lovely time riding around Amsterdam and learning the ins and outs of the city. Highlights included the Palace, Red Light District, learning about the neighborhoods, the moving process (throw a rope over a hook at the top of the building and haul it up!).

The enthusiasm and knowledge of our guide was awesome, and she took great photos of everyone in front of the final stop, a brew pub with a giant windmill on top of it.

Highly recommended! Wish we'd had time to do the country tour as well!

“Fantastic tour taking in both city & countryside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2011

My wife and I joined both the City Tour with Sean and the Countryside Tour with Alexander and we a had a great time on both. The City Tour is worth booking on at the beginning of your break as it gives you and sound background to the city and gives you the opportunity to get your bearings. It also lets you experience what it is like for the bike riders of Amsterdam so you will appreciate them as you walk around yourself. We would definitely recommend the tours and would do them again ourselves. Steve & Denise Morris
