Nice bikes and kind people at the Vondelpark location. Booked a cargo bike for which on of the kids was too big to fit in. Employees where kind enough to swap to a different bikes. Bikes themselves where good.

Only disadvantage is the deposit system. They like to have a photo of the front of a credit card, which means they have your credit card number forever. Alternative is to leave ID card or passport behind but this is even prohibited by Dutch law and thus should never be requested in my opinion.

Dear gerbenvl, Thank you for your review! We are happy to hear that you liked the bikes and that the service from our colleagues was good. We will pass on your nice compliments to our staff. And thank you for your feedback on the security deposit. As our primary deposit option, you can indeed use a credit card that we make a copy of at the shop. We understand your concern about the photo of your credit card. However, we treat this information with discretion and make every effort to keep it as safe and secure as possible. After returning the bikes, the copy is of course deleted. Due to the fact that not everyone has a credit card, we have also created an additional option whereby customers can leave their ID in the shop as a deposit. This way, it is possible for everyone to leave a deposit and rent a bike. Thank you again for your review and we hope to welcome you again someday. Kind regards, Team MacBike

Bikes are a must in Amsterdam. And Mac bikes are solid, easy to lock and fun!
Picking up the bikes is fairly quick and the staff is helpful.

Bike was ok, but how bizar that they want to keep your ID/driver's license if you don't have a credit card available!! That is not allowed!! How can you identify yourself without this ID?! What about the risk of identity fraud?! The ID's aren't even stored in a safe.

It was really easy and swift, it did not cost me much extra travel time and I was very happy the bikes have a rear rack as most Dutch need to bring a lot of luggage and a crate in front just does not suffice.
Also I was very lucky that there was an ebike for rent on the go, I got excellent service both at the Overtoom and the Waterloo square where I was earlier. MacBike has very nice personel and very nice tours. I could take a nice tour to my friends in the countryside, whom I otherwise never visit because the bus doesnt go there and I have no drivers license. The price quality ratio was really excellent but that the People were so nice was really the best succes.
I hope the ebike rental will be a succes for more Dutch people who cannot afford a car/drivers license, it is much much nicer than a scooter. Im still amazed with how it works. Even though an ebike can work almost like a scooter, you really have to peddle to make it go fast. I was surprised that you could cycle on an ebike as well if the battery runs out and even then you are faster than everyone.

The suggestive survey of tripAdvisor below review asks about MASKS!!?!? Seriously. come on. Bikes! OUTSIDE there is 0,000 Risk of catching any virus or bacteria on a bike you will have no runny nose other than hay fever. Ask any HONEST doctor and they will tell you. Do they think viruses go with 7 miles per hour? I also hope the non working mask nonsense stops as soon as possible, complying tourist sheep ignorance makes me really annoyed. Masks don't work against viruses, neither do vaccines and the virus is BS anyway. Cut out the marxism in your maskism Trip Advisor. Fear mongering is the last thing this world needs.

Not an outstanding experience. The guys were nice enough. A bit of a bummer that they don't give a refund when you return a bike earlier ( after a couple of hours, instead of after the paid for 24 hours.)

But I can see why tourists like them, they are very much focussed on that demographic and probably not dependant on, or looking for repeat business from locals.
