Got rescheduled after it started, but was a good ride

We originally scheduled our tour for a Sunday. We arrived on time, were given bikes, and set off. But about half way through, the guide discovered that there was a triathlon taking place along our route and we had to turn around. We were told we would get a refund. I was called later and informed that they would not issue a refund but that we could come back the next day and do it again. We did the latter and though the tour was nice, having to go twice ate up a bunch of time. I'm not sure what was done for people who could not come the next day.

Beautiful museum poor direction to boat trip

Loved the ease of getting ticket and easy access to museum had to use Google maps to get to boat trip note it is the red kiosk to left of front of museum. We went to this kiosk twice and we were sent on wild goose chase to find boat which so spoilt the experience. Finding the set off point was where we started was irratating and meant an hour wasted. It was so out of step with the hospitality of amsterdam

It was very enjoyable and our guide was great!

We were very pleased. Amsterbike staff were all friendly and adjusted our bikes for us. The guide was friendly and we had a small group. We had a nice bike ride through the streets of Amsterdam and also out of the city to enjoy the natural beauty. We enjoyed the stop at a farm seeing how they made cheese and wooden shoes. Not super challenging or too touristy.

Great way to view unique parts of Amsterdam!

Although I did enjoy the bike ride and the views I would have appreciated a little bit more a story, some history etc to go along with it. I found it was limited and I understand that our planned guide got sick so a wonderful leader stepped in for us which is not her regular role so very understandable. I was glad we avoided the busy Amsterdam streets.

Great insight into the ‘real’ side of Amsterdam

Our tour was cancelled on the initial day but we got a free 24hr bike rental (bonus) and put on the tour the following day.. our guide Kiefer was great! Very chilled and relaxed and always wanting to give us information to whatever was interesting. The cheese and clog making farm was really interesting and the workers were great!
