About Us

About: Joy Ride Bike Tours Amsterdam

In 2010, Sean and Allison Cody started Joy Ride Tours to introduce tourists from all over the world to their favorite city: Amsterdam.

After 10 passionate years of bike tours, they decided to leave for new pastures. They passed on their business to their local family friend Stephan.

Since January 2020, Stephan continued what Sean and Allison had laid the groundwork for.

Together with a small team of enthusiastic guides we continue showing you the highlights and hidden gems of our beautiful city and the surrounding country-side. We are looking forward to meeting you!

Why do we offer tours / experiences?

We believe having a personal connection with our guests is key to you having a good time. It is through this connection that a simple tour becomes a true experience. Our goal is to make you feel like you went through the city with a longtime friend.

How do we create a personal connection?

We focus on small groups, hosted by an experienced, approachable and local guide. We hire very selectively and only take the best and most social guides out there. Of course, our guides are also true experts in their field.
When we select partners that complement our offering, we go through a rigorous process to make sure they are a cultural fit with us.

How did we start?

A few years ago,  Stephan decided that the tour business needed change. Instead of large groups of people following a guide with umbrella and endless historical facts, we wanted to bring the fun back to travel.

What do you specialize in?

We specialize in both small group as in custom-made private tours. If you have any particular wishes, we work together with you to make them reality.

Do you offer private tours?

Next to our group tours we offer several private tours with our sister company Amsterdam Experiences.
