Best bike tour in Amsterdam
Four friends staying in Amsterdam and we decided to do a bike tour and so happy we did. We had comfortable bikes, we had a gorgeous young guide Nicky who lived in Amsterdam and told us history points and showed us all over the city at a leisurely pace so we could enjoy the scenery and take in the sights. We would highly recommend this as great value for money and lots of fun.

Henk is a walking library!
I was fortunate to be the only one in the tour today and thus had so much time chatting with Henk and asking questions. Henk’s tour is probably the best I’ve had in the life so far. In the 2hr walk, the introduction of the history in Amsterdam was very organized and chronological, along with the views.

I was brought back to the 17th, WWII, and living in the presence. Henk taught and reminded me that the progress and liberty we enjoy today are from a surviving and struggling past and certainly should not be forgotten.

Henk also shared lots of stories and fun facts that turned over my original thoughts. The most surprising part was probably when Henk took out his books and read the paragraphs and poem to me. It was just beautiful, as we relived in the historical moments. I almost got tears several times.

Being a tourist from Taiwan where we’ve only legalized same sex marriage very recently, I was deeply touched by the works of the pioneers in the history. I also truly appreciate the dedications of Henk that he’s trying the best to spread out the knowledge.

Top highlight of my Amsterdam trip! :)

Great opportunity to explore Amsterdam with locals!
Russian:
Прекрасный велотур по Амстердаму, за 3 часа вы успеете:
- заехать в интересные районы, в которые захочется вернуться ещё раз, и послушать истории о местных традициях
- выпить кофе в местном кафе и пообщаться с другими велотуристами со всего света
- почувствовать себя настоящим амстердамцем, потому что местные не предоставляют свою жизнь без велосипеда.

Большое спасибо организаторам тура, я многое узнал об Амстердаме и побывал в стольких местах, которые пешком не обойти!

English:
Marvelous Amsterdam bike tour, during 3 hours you will:
- visit beautiful neighborhoods that you would want to come back to and listen to stories about local traditions and history
- sip a coffee in a local place while chatting with other bike tourists all over the globe
- feel like a local, as locals can't imagine their life without a bicycle!

Many thanks to the team, I learned a lot during the tour about Amsterdam and visited so many places I would not be able to if I were on feet!

Hidden Gems of Amsterdam Bike Tour
A totally alternative view of Amsterdam
I have always been very sceptical about boat tours in different cities, because they always look so commercial & touristic. The boat ride offered by Chris is totally opposite – a super relaxed way to cruise around Amsterdam and see the local life in a totally different perspective.

Besides being able to see the buildings in a much better way than walking or on bike, you can also see a lot of things happening in that vibrant city – from people shooting wedding photos on the bridges, to locals and/or tourists cruising on the canals with their friends and family, to seeing the life going on in the boat houses.

I'd say it's one of the must do things in Amsterdam and I would recommend Chris to everyone.
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
Great fun!
We had such a blast on the hidden gems tour. Guide was knowledgeable, took us to some less touristy spots like a local market (not the flower one) and the widows courtyard, had a really good understanding of history and helped us navigate bike riding in the Netherlands. Easy pace and comfy bike, even for those who don’t love bike riding. They also ended up giving us a private tour and were very accommodating when our trains delayed our meet up time. Only odd part at the end was that the guide seemed to expect a tip (which I gladly gave because he was amazing) but when you read that some European countries don’t tip, I wasn’t sure how to proceed.
Hidden Gems of Amsterdam Bike Tour
Highlight of the trip!
Boat trip was beautiful - a definite highlight for our whole group of 6 - and Chris was not only helpful and knowledgeable but also just a fun person to spend an hour or so floating down the canals with! He made the whole process very easy and was able to enrich the trip with facts about the city and locals-only insider info. He gave us a great recommendation for a bar and restaurant and was even able to drop us off near where we were staying. I'd absolutely recommend this to anyone visiting the city. Great value for cost.
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
Excellent Photographer and Guide
I would highly recommend Gaby, she took excellent photos of me and my girlfriend and knew all the good locations to get the best photos. For me as an awkward photo taker i was glad she even helped to pose us so that they all came out looking fantastic. She was also very reposnsive to communications and even gave us some great restaraunt recommendations in the days following our photo shoot. Absolutely great photographer and guide.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE
I wanted to propose to my boyfriend while in Amsterdam and was fortunate enough to find Chris. He was very kind and communicative and helped me come up with a clear plan. It could not have gone any better and now we’re engaged!
Chris was the perfect amount of informative, funny, and charming. I highly recommend his boat ride.
Also, Amsterdam at dusk into the night is nothing short of magical.
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
Fascinating and informative guided tour
Fascinating and informative guided tour about the history of the old Amsterdam neighbourhood ‘De Jordaan’. Guide Breklyn takes you to places tourists would not normally find by themselves, and some other hidden gems. Interesting places: the corridors of Willemstreet, Johnny Jordaan Square, Begijnhof (former Béguinage), Westerchurch, Homomonument, and so much more.
Historical Jordaan Walking Tour
Most comfortable bike seat EVER!
My husband and I went on the bike tour and were very pleased all parts of the service. The bikes were comfortable, there were frequent stops to talk about sites and culture, the guide (Charlotte) was knowledgeable approachable and shared her passion for her native city. It helped see the city from a very different perspective. Thank you. Highly recommended.

John is knowleadge and friendly
I participated in the one-hour city bike today afternoon, and John has a very typical American accent which is easy to understand for non-native English speaker. It will be the best way to explore the city, while you don't need to concern about getting lost.
I will be the bike tour next year if I have more spare time. Personally, I highly recommend it !!
Amsterdam Sightseeing City Bike Tour
Lovely tour of Amsterdam
This was such a lovely tour! It was so nice to do a tour of the canals with just my family. Vanessa told us interesting stories as went thru the canals. With her small boat she was able to take us down some of the quieter canals that the larger tour boats can't travel down. Wet had our teenagers and Grandma with us and everyone enjoyed this tour.
Historic Boat Tour of Amsterdam Canals
Highlight of Amsterdam visit
Amsterdam Canals tour is an amazing experience and even better when you have a boat for just you and your friends/family. The view is amazing and the sunset was just glamorous. Besides, Chris was a really friendly guide and drove us to some hidden gems as well as famous places. It was for sure the highlight of our Amsterdam visit.
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
Don’t hesitate! This is the boat you want :)
Carl was an amazing host. He made me and my friends feel at ease and made the entire experience perfect. He offers great local insight to Amsterdam and some interesting history along the way, but clearly reads the group and delivers whatever will make the trip most enjoyable for everyone. Cant recommend it enough.

Great experience!
Chris was a fabulous guide and is extremely knowledgeable about the city. Seeing the city from the water gave us a beautiful perspective of our surroundings. Our family loved the private canal tour and we were so thankful to not be on one of those crowded tour boats. Highly recommend Chris!!
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
A master class taught by an expert.
Karla was remarkable. She spent three hours with us. First setting the stage in the museum cellar, then ascending into the rest of the building. She got us through crowds and positioned us to enable getting a senses not just of the art but if the historical context. Karla is outstanding.
Experience Amsterdam Rijksmuseum with an Entertaining Art Historian
Great private boat tour in Amsterdam
Chris was a great tour guide. He took us to places that the larger canal boats just can't access (because of their size). This gave us a closer look at how the locals live and play in Amsterdam. Excellent overall experience, highly recommended!
Amsterdam Private Boat Tour
A must do
This was an excellent way to see the city of Amsterdam. Our guide Jasper was very knowledgeable, pleasant and friendly.

Would definitely recommend this activity to everyone and would do this tour again. Have fun guys!!!

Great 2h tour on the canals with Chris
My friend and I booked a private tour on the canals with Chris and got to see parts of Amsterdam from the water, that we have never seen before. Would highliy recommend the boat trip and Chris is a great captain and guide.

Wonderful! Thank you, Chris!
