Feedback - What guests wrote on day trips On a countryside bike tour : When we visit Amsterdam again, Edmond's tour will be at the top of our list. Kelly and Evan Smith, Washington DC, USA click on image for the full review this guest kindly wrote. review multi-day bicycle tour On a multi-day tour : This is very different from a bike tour with a company where one is with a group of folks one does not know and a set itinerary despite possibly not wanting to be locked into a time table or number of nights. We ourselves prefer a more leisurely pace to take in all of the scenery but Edmond can accommodate whatever you prefer. Also, Edmond's rates are less than the tours we are familiar with and well worth the price.

Leiden is much more relaxing than Amsterdam. Leiden also allows you to leisurely explore historical sites that is not always possible to do in Amsterdam.

Edmond was extremely informative and engaging and highly invested in our having a great bike experience.
Sandy R., Marietta, Georgia, USA click on image for the full review this guest kindly wrote. review bicycle day trip We decided on a full day bicycle ride and a general description of what we would do; we were interested in riding in the country, we like wildlife, and were interested in seeing some windmills. We could not have been happier with the experience.
Nicole, Simon, Senna and Rowan Camp, Norfolk, UK click on image for the full review this guest kindly wrote. review bicycle day trip Edmond was skilled at pacing our group, stopping just when we need it to offer a delicious snack and a story or two. The trip felt relaxed, and yet we saw a great deal of scenery and really got a good feeling for the countryside.

Edmond was like a private chef creating dinner from scratch using the best seasonal ingredients.

Fred Pritzker - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA    click here for the full review this guest kindly wrote. Bill Kemp, from Austin, Texas, visited Holland with his wife Paula.
He published an article in International Travel Magazine on their experiences, which included a Leiden walk and a bike trip in the countryside.
The city (Leiden) is so ancient that many of the sights were difficult to locate on the narrow streets and alleys, which were laid out in a haphazard manner. It would have taken us a lot of time to figure out the layout of the city, but Edmond was able to lead us efficiently from one sight to another. click on images below for Bill Kemp's Leiden walk tour review. review Leiden balk On their full day countryside bike tour :
We were tired, but the effort was well worthwhile.
We had seen so many different things in one day, getting a different perspective of the Netherlands.

A tour into the reclaimed land of the former Southern Sea. Going north, along flowering tulip fields to the little town of Giethoorn. Preceded by a short walk in the old centre of Amsterdam. My niece & I had taken an Amsterdam city tour by both bus & canal boat, but we learned far more from Edmond than in both of those put together, & thoroughly enjoyed our walk. ...
He had emailed me asking about our interests, as we had time to do other things besides Giethoorn. We saw a variety of pretty scenery & places of interest, learned a lot about Holland's history & the polders & dikes, & so much more. ...
I can honestly say that our day with Edmond was the best of our entire 2 week trip. click here for the very complete review this guest kindly wrote. A very enjoyable and memorable bike outing. The windmill stop was a real highlight. The ride through the small towns and canal bridge crossings was very charming.
Edmond takes a real interest and pride in his work and interacted in the most warmth and friendly manner.
To sample Amsterdam's countryside I have absolutely no hesitation recommending bike outing with Edmond.

BengHin & HuayYi - Singapore. We enjoyed very much our bike tour through Weesp and Muiden, seeing the mills and riding along the river with the beautiful Dutch "boat" houses.
Edmond was a wonderful guide providing us with a special "touch" of Dutch history rendering the ride even better.
Great choice !

Ita, Mirian, Rachel and Jose - Brazil I'm so pleased to have stumbled on your website, as I'm sure I couldn't have found a better tour anywhere else.
Thank you again, for the wonderful day and all the interesting information on Holland and its history.
C.C. - California, USA We enjoyed Weesp. It is a pretty town and the surrounding area is full of history - not just from the war(s) but about how people have managed the land and water to build their lives off the land.
This trip will be remembered as not just a trip to Holland, but an experience of Holland as I've always believed the people make the place not the other way around. We were very fortunate to have made your acquaintance.
L.H. - London, UK We loved meeting your family, seeing the windmill, eating lunch on the sea dike and trying to paint the beautiful dutch sky.
Thank you for a wonderful bike trip. We certainly would recommend your tour to anyone.

M.S. - California, USA Thanks for all the tips. ... It was a wonderful time. Lucky you to live there !
H.C. - Lisbon, Portugal Thank you for two wonderful days together. We thoroughly enjoyed your company and the information you shared with us and the delightful food and treats. Few tourists get to experience and see what we did.
The bike rides were awesome, even though we were a little saddle sore after the last ride. But I'll have to get back into shape, that's all.
We thought that the money we spent on these very personalized day trips was worth every single cent.

C.H. - Indiana, USA We were just looking over photos with my mother and the kids repeatedly named our tour with you as a trip highlight. Castles and windmills and ice cream, all noteworthy.
I really don't know of any other tour or vacation activity I've done that was anything like that. The scenery, the great guiding, getting to know the land and the history -- very memorable.

A.B. - California, USA The 2 trips have been very pleasant and enjoyable. The sunshine and exercises did provide us a good excuse for some good food in Amsterdam.
Thank you very much for organizing the trips.
I will visit your web site regularly which will remind me of the nice and serene countryside of Weesp.

S.K.K. - Hongkong, China Your Amsterdam tour was a real highlight of my trip, and I plan on returning to see more of that beautiful city.
J.G. - Oregon, USA The Amsterdam tour was wonderful! Edmond was flexible and tried to individualize as much as possible.
A.B.M. - Georgia, USA We spent several more days in the city on our own, knowing what we were seeing and feeling comfortable navigating on our own. Your introduction gave so much more depth to our understanding of Holland - its history and its people.
