Jan is a delight! He drove us throughout Amsterdam on his rickshaw. We were able to hop out and walk through interesting sites. He was very patient with is as we move rather slowly. My gosh, he knows the history of the city and took is past innumerable places. We were able to slide in and out of areas in the rickshaw that cars would be unable to maneuver. We thoroughly enjoyed our hours with Jan and his wealth of Amsterdam knowledge. We highly recommend using his service.

My husband and I had a wonderful tour experience with Jan. He was easy to find and punctual. Had all sorts of surprises along the way. We thought 4 hours might be a long time to take a rickshaw ride but being that central Amsterdam doesn't allow vehicles it was the best way to see everything we wanted. Would highly recommend Jan's tour.

Jan, was great. He must at the cruise terminal, spent two plus hours in his ped-a-cab, and took us back to the terminal in time for us to cruise on....fun time.

Jan did a wonderful job of listening to our objectives and turning our tour into an super informative and quick overview of Amsterdam. He is a walking encyclopedia and led us to the "hidden" places that we would have never found on our own. He also gave us choices so we could decide between routes considering our time limitation. I highly recommend Jan.

I spent a great day with Jan. We explored different parts of Amsterdam that I would never have seen. He made sure to make my tour tailored to what interested me. To that end, he was a huge success. Our day flew by and I highly recomend him. When I return to Amsterdam, I will engage his services again. Thank you Jan for a fantastic ray.

I have rated our rickshaw tour of Amsterdam with Jan as five stars. He was personable and well informed. He covered ten times the territory in the rickshaw than he could have in a walking tour. And we got a feel for travelling in the ubiquitous bike lanes of Amsterdam, which gave us another dimension of life in the city. A wonderful experience in a great city. Thank you Jan.

Everything went as scheduled. He was right on time and away we went. Jan is very knowledgeable and speaks excellent English which was good for us. In his rickshaw we were able to travel a great distance and see all the sights in the city as well as the countryside. I highly recommend Jan, HIGHLY!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Gary, it was great to do the tour with you and your wife! Thanks a lot for the invitation!

Our group of four included my sister who has mobility issues. We explained our situation and he created a tour specifically suited to our needs. He checked to ensure we weren’t going too fast and found places for her to rest. The tour of central Amsterdam that Jan put together was amazing! We will remember Jan and his stories for a very long time! He was very knowledgeable, funny and passionate about sharing the history of Amsterdam. This was an outstanding tour! We would highly recommend Jan’s services!

Jan was a great guide! His knowledge of Amsterdam history and architecture, its people and customs is vast. He was friendly, accommodating to our needs and showed us far more of the city than we could have accomplished on our own. Thank you, Jan!

Wonderful overview of Amsterdam. We got to so many spots and got to go into a church and private garden and to see lots of sights. Jan was so pleasant and informative. He made us feel so welcome in his city. We worried about rain but it was beautiful. The day after King's Day was worrisome because of broken glass in the streets and the chance of his tires going flat. But he worked around it and gave us a lovely tour.

Jan was a great introduction to Amsterdam on our second day. We sat in the back of his rickshaw and were amazed at how he can navigate the streets, showing us all the nooks and crannies of the city, riding up hills and through traffic effortlessly, all while chatting to us about Amsterdam's highlights. He had a blanket ready for the chilly weather that day, so I was very comfortable throughout our tour. We highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Would be great to see you next year Cal!

Wow! What a great way to see Amsterdam in a short time! Saw all the major sights and many more. Jan gave us a great historical perspective of Amsterdam, and brought things alive for today. He stopped his bike at just the right spots for photos and was willing to have conversation about our interests and questions.

The BEST way to see central Amsterdam. Our guide was excellent. He took us thru the most beautiful sights of the canals and River Amstel. He commented on the history and pointed to specific buildings and small details we would have never seen had we just walked in the front of the building. This was our 4th visit to AMS but we never really got the beauty until today. Our guide was very nice, professional, spoke perfect English, and had very strong legs. Some bridges were pretty high and we weigh 500 lbs.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You guys were very welcome Robert!

This is an absolute must while in Amsterdam. Jan is a super guide and passionate about what he does. He takes pains to ensure the maximum satisfaction o the guests. Our trip was spoiled by rain but that did not stop Jan from producing a memorable experience. He comes in prepared to tackle the rain. Due to the rain, Jan took us out for an additional hour the next day to make up for the sights we had missed. Fantastic experience.

Great Tour. Jan was on time picking us up from the airport. My mother has some limited mobility and this tour was perfect for her needs while not being too sedentary for me. Jan was very knowledgeable and took us to many sights we would not have otherwise seen. Amsterdam is a beautiful city and this four hour tour was the perfect way to see it and get an idea of where we wanted to return for a more in depth visit. I highly recommend this tour!

Wonderful tour! We covered most of the highlights in a remarkably short time. We chose not to take a lunch break, that was a mistake. A half hour break would have refreshed us. Jan was very responsive to our specific requests and desires. Our only complaint was that it was sometimes difficult to hear what Jan was saying.

My husband and I have mobility issues so we chose this 4 hour rickshaw tour with Jan as a way to experience Amsterdam. It was perfect!!!!! We got to bike with the other bikers seeing Amsterdam up close and with a local to show us around. We made stops for photos and at a street vendor so I could taste the raw herring that is so popular. We stopped at a little cafe for drinks and a sampling of Dutch snacks. Out friends that walked the city were envious of us. We saw more of the city !
