Reaching the city following the charming Amstel River, the peaceful water and the house boats all along, becomes an unforgettable experience. We visit Amsterdam by night. Dinner on board.

"Bike, barge and tulips!"

This was a fantastic tour; everything about it was special! The small group atmosphere, the vintage boat (with comfy mattresses), wonderful meals made by Henny and the competent sailing of our amazing Captain Roel. Then there was our fearless leader, Carlos, who guided us with heart and humour, showing us the beauty of Holland from the seats of our bicycles. I would recommend this trip highly. If there were more stars, I would award them. Toni.

"A wonderful ride through the Netherlands"

Our Yubike tour was everything we wanted and then some. Carlos was a fun, fascinating, and congenial host and tour guide. The accommodations and food were just right. All in all a near perfect trip.
