bike tour in Holland
Amsterdam walk plus two days in the country. Antoinette and Lisa were looking for a more in-depth exploration of Holland.
So I proposed a half day walk in the old centre of Amsterdam, an introduction to the city and to the history of the Netherlands. Also preparing the next day for visiting on their own. Then two days in the countryside.
The first night they spent in a houseboat, actually a traditional Dutch sailing vessel still in use, in the town where the cycling was going to start in the morning. (see pictures below)
In the morning we left for a full day guided bike tour, ending at their apartment in a 200 year old house with view over the city ramparts. The next day they returned on their own, using cycling map and information I had prepared for a shorter straightforward route. Edmond - Holland countryside cycling review Antoinette and Lisa's review : Toss out your guidebook and spend the afternoon with the real deal. Edmond will deliver an unforgettable journey of history, architecture, geography and life in the Netherlands from its past to today. Or just let him know your interest and he will create an individualized tour just for you. He truly delights in sharing his vast knowledge and is so very generous with added information to make your stay in and around Amsterdam pretty darn awesome. We spend a half day with him in Amsterdam, then a full day biking in the countryside. All details taken care of from train tickets to my gluten free lunch to bicycle rentals and chatting over coffee at his place. We loved the tour of the working mill from Tony and meeting his lovely granddaughters. So personal authentic. What a marvellous time!
You get a 10 out of 10 rating! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our visit to the Netherlands an incredibly beautiful experience! Antoinette & Lisa - New York
