Luxury Canal Boat & Bike Tour
Joy Ride Tours partners with one of Amsterdam's finest boat companies to offer the very best way to see Amsterdam...from both the water and by bike!
Your day begins in the morning with the biking portion of this outstanding experience, where you will escape the city for a relaxing and leisurly four hour private countryside bike tour. Highlights along this bike route include the Vondel Park, a floating houseboat village, the Amsterdam Forest, Dutch polders, a visit to a working cheese farm (which also makes Dutch clogs!) and a stop by a beautiful windmill from 1636.
The vintage salon boat, Lieve, is from the 1930's and has been lovingly restored. "Lieve" means love, or sweetheart in Dutch.
The boat comes complete with a stereo system, an indoor salon (holding up to 12 people) and bathroom facilities. The boat is piloted by a wonderful local Dutch captain, Jan Arie, who is also the owner of the boat!
Splurge and treat yourself to a once in a lifetime canal experience with Captain Jan Arie on his vintage salon boat. We are also happy to arrange drinks and snacks on the canal boat as well with advance notice.
This journey will certainly enchant and entertain as you bike through the Dutch polders and also sail the waterways in our very own Venice of the North.
