"Family Bike Tour" - completely unsuitable for children
Aug 2018 • Family
We were SO disappointed with this tour after reading all the great reviews. Our family of four (kids aged 7 & 9) arrived in Amsterdam on a beautiful day in late August, and were fortunate enough to have the tour guide, Scott all to ourselves. We'd been looking forward to trying out the tandem parent / child bikes we'd seen in the photos advertising the "Family bike tour" we'd purchased online - that way we could keep the kids safe, and if they got to tired we could pedal the rest of the way for them. We even called ahead to make sure these were available that day - the man on the phone was non-committal - we realised why later - the bikes are hired from a third party for the tours. Scott quickly advised that those bikes were unsuitable for where we would be riding as the streets are too narrow. I would have thought that he could have tailored the tour a little given we were his only clients that afternoon. Anyway we set off briefly, only to stop after 30 seconds to be given an extremely long and very boring spiel about the port. Not only were the kids bored senseless - WE were too. And so it continued, riding way too far and fast for our children to keep up (even though they are quite experienced cyclists for their age), then stopping for way too long for history lessons that were in no way designed to entertain anyone, let alone children. We had no chance to take photos, and the guide never once offered to stop for a photo, let alone to take one for us. We also really didn't feel like Scott was looking out for our safety at all - we've been on bike tours all around Europe and the guide will generally make sure everyone is keeping up, and crossing roads safely etc - Scott did none of these things, and we worried for our children's safety. We brought our concerns to the guide's attention several times during the tour, but things did not improve. He had his set spiel and he was going to give it. He seemed like a nice enough guy, who really loves Amsterdam, but I'm sorry to say this was the worst bike tour we've ever done.

Pippa, thanks for giving us good feedback! I'm sorry about the bad experience. We've talked to Scott and we're improving our care for children on our bike tours, and we are doing more on preparing our customers for the heavy traffic in Amsterdam. Best, Jade

Wonderful Bike Tour
Aug 2018 • Friends
My friends who lives in the Netherlands and I took this tour together for my sake and we had a great time! Our guide was very well informed, and gave me a lot of great information. My friend said he knew like 70% of the stuff that was said, but it was mostly new to me. He even commented that the guide explained everything very well and all of the information was accurate!

And seeing the city by bike was the coolest way to see Amsterdam by far, having walked through it the day before. Overall would highly reccomend
