We had -so- much fun riding around Amsterdam on rental bikes, I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the city and would even say this is an absolute must. Prices were reasonable, and the bikes were sturdy and pleasant to ride. When near Amsterdam...More

Had a lovely experience with the guide Kendra. Aside of knowing a lot about the city/countryside she was also very funny. 10/10 would recommend

Hostile and unwelcoming people. The guy who gave us the bikes had a bad attitude, impatient. Not a pleasant experience. The same for the other lady working there. Bikes are standard, nothing special. There are cheaper rentals nearby.

We hired two bikes super-quickly, no hassle. Very convenient. And when we came back and pointed out that there was a fault with the brakes on one, they didn't charge us for it. Super service. Highly recommend.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
