“The best activity you can do to experience the Dutch country besides visiting the city centre of Amsterdam”
Review of Scooter Experience

Scooter Experience
Ranked #1 of 3 things to do in Landsmeer
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Hire a scooter at http://scooterexperience.nl/ in the village of Landsmeer. I know for sure that you will enjoy it. The best way to experience the Dutch countryside in the surroundings of Amsterdam. The price is reasonable. € 47 including insurance ald fuel for about 6 hours. It is an amazing experience to ride a scooter. The maximum speed is about 40 km an hour (officially you have to drive maximum 25 km an hour). You don't need a helmet for this kind of scooters. The company is runned bij Leon. He is very enthousiastic en proud to have raised his company to a very professional business with an enourmous amount of scooters. You get a good instruction, a map of the route with a desription of sight seeings and restaurants. All the main Dutch villages are on the route, not only Marken and Volendam. Be sure to be back on time (18.00 hours). Dutch families (like ourselves), fiends and tourist will love it. We have hired the scooters last week for the third time and i think it will not be the laste time.

Without a doubt, this was the highlight of our trip to Amsterdam. The scooters are dead-easy to operate and the fact you travel on the bike paths makes it extra safe. We saw everything from historical villages, the seaside, farming communitities, a cheese farm operation and an operating windmill. We also drove through a beautiful forest and along a nice beach.

What a great way to see life outside Amsterdam.

Absolutely Brilliant! We had such a good time. The staff (Leon) was so nice and very helpful with telling us all the things we should try and see (bring your cameras) we had booked the scooters for the entire day. The equipment was well maintained and easy to ride. The trail directions are so well done and easy to follow with so many to choose from. It was the best thing we did during our Amsterdam holiday. We highly recommend this to everyone that would like to see something other than the streets of Amsterdam city itself. We will be back on a regular basis just for a great day out. With living in London it's only a 45 minute flight and we can have a fun day out scootering the countryside and home for dinner. Fabulous.

This was the best thing we did while we were in Amsterdam. We caught the bus from Centraal Station up to Landsmeer and met up with Leon first thing in the morning. The weather wasn't very nice and it was raining when we arrived, but Leon fitted us out with waterproof coats and pants as well as gloves. Luckily the rain stopped and we only got a few small showers through the day. My wife has been on motorbikes before so she had no trouble controlling the scooter, but it took me a bit longer. It was slow going for the first few kilometres but I got the hang of it and soon enough we were flying through the countryside. The scenery is amazing and some of the little Dutch villages are like a step back in time. Marken in particular was great, that's where we had lunch. We got lost a few times but the map provided is generally easy to follow, just don't lose the numbers on the bike paths or it can be difficult to get back on track again. We had such a fun day doing this and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Do it for the whole day, I guarantee you will want more than half a day once you see how fun it is.

This was definitly a highlight to our trip to Amsterdam. Take the time to head 20min north of the city while you're there and go see Leon. He will take great care of you and give you everything you need to have an amazing,fun,fabulous adventure in the countryside. The scooters are well kept and easy to use. The bike trails are well marked and you have several options to choose from depending on how much or little time you have to committ. We will be back for sure. Pics coming
