    We had a beautiful day riding from Vondelpark, through the outskirts of Amsterdam and out to the countryside. Antoine was an amazing tour guide and despite a little rain kept the group in good spirits. We had been on a couple tours within the city at that point but this tour and the stories told were unique and thoroughly interesting. Joy Ride Tours are a small operation and the level of communication and service throughout was amazing. Would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone.
