I'm a world traveler who spent nearly six years on the road before making my way back to my home country. I've lived in Russia, Australia, and China, and I've explored many countries by motorcycle. In addition to being an enthusiastic guide, I study theoretical physics and have a minor in Amsterdam history.

What a unique, truly amazing experience travelling around the countryside near Amsterdam in a side car! You get to see things you wouldn’t normally see by just staying in Amsterdam. Our guide ‘Guy’ was a very interesting character who had great, dry sense of humour. We got picked up and dropped of to the hotel we were staying in. It was a different experience, highly recommend.

This was such a wonderful and exhilarating experience! We were both able to ride in the sidecar as well as the back so were able to feel both ways of transport. We had so much fun and got to taste authentic pickled herring and smoked eel.

The tour was amazing! I enjoyed a wonderful ride in the sidecar, which was my 1st time, and they were not kidding about the winter weather. I learned about the importance of dikes and how they hold back the sea. The village of Volendam was quaint and peaceful . Overall a very enjoyable experience.

Our driver was Guy and he had the coolest Italian motorcycle and sidecar. We went to two different coastal towns out in the countryside north of Amsterdam, and he took us around and explained some of the history at both locations. We tried some local fish at one stop and grabbed coffee on the second. It was the perfect amount of time, and there were tons of beautiful photo opportunities. Guy was so nice and relaxed. We really enjoyed ourselves and highly recommended this experience!!

Awesome bike ride in the country side. Sooo glad I decided to do it. Got to know the Netherlands in a completely different way that I wouldn't have been able to do on my own!
