Bikin’ on the dikes, we are bikin’ on the dikes...lalala

It was the perfect live-like-the-Dutch day on the bike. The ride was extremely well planned. It took us through the hustle and bustle of city streets, the countryside cobbles lanes, wind mills, an actual sea wall dike, a pumping station, and several quaint small villages. We had cheese, pies and croquettes for lunch at a village pub. It was just perfect! Our guide Riem was friendly, knowledgeable, and protective without being controlling. He was equally at home talking about Dutch history, water management as he was good at fixing a flat. Our small group of 4 people also worked out perfectly. The 4 hour time allowance made it relaxed, as we were not rush from place to place. Highly recommended for everyone!

Well organized bike tour with comfortable, good bikes

Well organized bike tour to the idyllic surroundings of Amsterdam, our guide was a very likeable young Dutch woman who carried out this tour with a lot of commitment and sovereignty. The bikes are well maintained and have no gears, so everyone has to be able to cycle at a steady pace, which makes the tour pleasantly contemplative even in a larger group.
