cycling in the wide open countryside along the castle
bike tour in Holland - review Personalized countryside bicycle tour guide. I found Edmond van Putte and his business, called for guiding myself and spouse on a countryside bicycle ride in Amsterdam. We chose a bike ride to Muiden and the fortified town of Naarden because I enjoyed the scenery that was shown on the website. We had such a memorable time with Edmond, whose background is a researcher on Amsterdam history. His knowledge came through in the things we saw and learned a lot about the water and the canals in the country. We rode by picturesque rivers, canals, fields, woods, forts, medieval castles, and a fortified town. He is such a pleasure to work with and was so responsive to our emails in planning the trip. He is also flexible in planning the route, based on your biking ability and time you want to spend. We chose an all day bike trip since it was so reasonable for a personalized tour. On that day, he met us at the Amsterdam central station and brought us on the train to our starting city of the bike trip, Weesp. He coordinated the rental of our bikes beforehand and we picked up the rental bikes in the town of Weesp. After that, we went to his home a few steps from the Weesp train station and we picked up his bike and the homemade bread sandwiches, snacks, cookies, and drinks that he brought for us. He opened his home up and let us in, like we were old time friends. When we arrived home, he sent us a souvenir of all the pictures he took of us while we were riding our bicycles along with a certificate showing us how many kilometres we rode that day. We will miss not seeing him anymore, until I plan another trip to Amsterdam. bike tour in Holland - review bike tour in Holland - review More reviews : click on images above.
