On the City bike tour we take max 14 people in one group
On the mini City bike tour we take a max of 12 people in one group
Please note that for private tours we can take as little or many as you like.
The mini City bike tour last 2 hours and stays within the Inner Canal belt so we do not bike to the Museumsplein or through the Vondelpark and we also do not stop for a drink on this tour.
The City bike tour is not recommended for children. Your child must be 13 years old to go along on the City or mini City bike tour. We have an age restriction for our scheduled City tours due to stamina, ability of the children, and most importantly situational awareness. As we are cycling through the heart of Amsterdam it is very important that everyone is aware of their surroundings at all times, under 13′s tend to need more attention and assistance as they are not always aware of the dangers around them. Also the scheduled city tour does go through the Red Light District and we do speak about Prostitution and Drugs which some families find unsuitable for their children.
The Countryside bike tour is appropriate as a private tour for children of 10 years or older, as long as they can ride a bike and are confident bike riders.
We recommend families with under 13′s to consider a Private bike tour, as our guides can look after your family with more attention free for the younger people. We can also choose a route which is more suitable, due to traffic and locations and age, for example maybe avoiding the Red Light District, or not speaking about cannabis or coffeeshops..
We also do not have any bikes with baby seats on them, so if you want to book a private bike tour with a baby, you will have to bring your own bike along with a baby seat (these can be rented from Mac bike)
