A History Tour combined with a great bike ride
202murrayh
, Oct 2019
Edmund, thanks for a very informative and fun day! This bike tour puts you right in the middle of Amsterdam's long history and Edmund brought to life the many things that made the Dutch such a power house in their day. To say that Edmund knows his stuff doesn't truly capture the depth of knowledge he can share and in the right amount. Cycling wise, we covered a lot of ground, 50+ KM's, mostly flat as we only had one hill to contend with. The tour took us by WWI bunkers, 13th Century burial tombs, former fortifications and of course Windmills. All of this Edmund briefed us as to their use and in some cases their unique characteristics. We opted to stop for lunch and even though it was a busy Sunday, Edmund found us a nice place to stop. As an extra bonus, Edmund arranged for us to stop by a working Windmill and the Operator gave us a detailed tour and demonstration of how the Windmill works. On this tour you get to see some amazing countryside, learn and have a moderate amount of exercise. We would highly recommend this tour.

Amazing Dutch Bike Tour! HIghly Recommend

This was by far our favorite tour in The Netherlands. All 4 of our children ages 20, 19, 17 & 13 felt this tour was perfect. Edmond was unbelievably prepared and professional and customized the tour to our varied interests. The amount of preparation and effort was incredible. The bike ride was fantastic through beautiful countryside and it was a true authentic introduction to the Dutch way of life. Edmond even packed us each our own lunch with bread made form the local wheat ground by the windmill. He is incredibly knowledgeable and we loved his exuberant and energetic company as well. This was truly the perfect tour to get an authentic snapshot into Dutch living and the local countryside. I would recommend this to anyone!

Highly, highly recommend taking this beautiful bike tour. Edmond our tour guide made the entire day extra special by creating a very personal, insider experience. All details are taken care of for you with plenty of communication before the tour day. The bike route is easy to navigate with gorgeous scenery of small villages, windmills, farm land, war artifacts and even a castle. Edmond prepares a large lunch of homemade baked bread from windmill ground flour along with many other extras, impossible to eat everything. I will be booking the same tour on my next trip to Amsterdam !!!

This tour is definitely an example of a greatly organized adventure, where no detail was left out. Professionalism and expertise of our guide, Edmond, deserves the highest possible praise, and the whole tour is simply unforgettable. Besides been very educational, and giving a lot of very interesting historical and engineering facts, the way everything was planned, is very impressive. Great itinerary and narration, beautiful scenery, fortifications, castle and fortress - everything was becoming alive with the images of historical events, which took place there, thanks to the commentary of our guide. Although physically challenging for the people, who did not ride a bike for years like me, under the supervision of Edmond, and thanks to his patience, it was possible to complete the tour. Very well planned stops allowed to rest just in time, including a short walk to stretch, delicious and nutritious lunch, and even packs of tissues: everything was thought of. The information, provided during this tour, covers different historical periods, and would be of interest to anybody, who is interested in history. We would highly recommend this tour, are very grateful to Edmond for one of the best days in our lives.

Edmond war unser Guide, sehr...

Edmond war unser Guide, sehr freundlich und menschlich. Er begleitet uns erst mit dem Zug ein Stück, bevor wir bei ihm im Dorf Weesp die Fahrräder und das Lunchpaket abholten. Er führte uns durch das Umland und erzählte uns viel über die Geschichte und seine Heimat. Wir konnten auch entscheiden ob die eine längere Tour oder die Abkurzung nehmen wollen. Wir führen durch Dörfer, Wald, Heide, machten Picknick, bevor wir in der Festungsstadt Naarden ankamen. Als besonderen Service machte er Fotos von uns, welche er uns online zur Verfügung stellen möchte. Die Tour ist zwar etwas hochwertig im Preis, dafür aber qualitativ gut. Bitte beachten, dass für die Fahrräder noch eine extra Leihgebühr anfällt, welche noch nicht im Preis enthalten ist. Gernekann man auch das eigene Fahrrad mitbringen. Er begleitete uns zum Abschluss noch zum Zug, für welchen er bereits Fahrkarten gekauft hat. Wir genossen die Tour durchs Land, das war wirklich einmal etwas anderes! Wir hattem die Tour Krieg and Frieden gewählt.
