Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
In case you stay in a hotel in the center the easiest way with the least risk of misunderstandings is to pick you up at your hotel. So please always indicate in which hotel you are staying. I pick up guests from all hotels in and around the center of Amsterdam, including ones not listed above here. I provide pick up service at the most common docking locations of cruiseships as well. Most sea Cruiseships do dock at the PTA, most river cruiseships at either De Ruyterkade Oost or De Ruyterkade west. In case you would like to be picked up somewhere else please indicate as well. In case you are not in a hotel in the center and don't have any suggestions where to be picked up from, i will suggest a couple of locations to meet.

Ports

  • Passenger terminal Amsterdam (PTA, this is the port where almost all sea cruise ships dock)
  • de Ruyterkade Oost (this is where most rivercruiseships like the Viking ships dock)
  • De Ruyterkade West (some river cruise ships do dock here)


Kick off your 1-hour rickshaw tour at your Amsterdam accommodation, where you’ll greet your guide and climb aboard your rickshaw in either the morning or afternoon. Begin by travelling along the 17th-century Amsterdam Canal Ring, declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO.

Traverse picturesque bridges, pass important intersections, and direct your attention to an Aepjen bar, one of only two remaining 16th-century wooden houses in Amsterdam.

Admire the verdant courtyard of Begijnhof, an enclosed 14th-century convent, before you proceed to Museumplein, home to three of the Netherlands’ most important museums: Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, and the Stedelijk Museum of modern art.

Then, see the Concergebouw and Westerchurchtower before stopping for a moment of quiet reflection at the National Holocaust Memorial. Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your Amsterdam accommodation, or another location of your choice.

Much better than walking

Amsterdam's old town is mainly narrow and very busy roads, so we opted for the Rickshaw tour with Jost. We were so glad we did as we covered quite a bit of ground and got an entertaining commentary along with it. a good way to get a feel for where various sites are and how close or far apart they are.

What a way to start Amsterdam

We landed in Amsterdam at about noon and thought a Rickshaw ride would be a great start to see the city. Jan was great.....shortly after we landed he called with a weather update. Wanted us to delay the ride because storms were coming. We agreed to a two hour delay. Jan called back again with a weather update and wanted us to Starr earlier. It was great. He picked us up and the weather held out for the whole tour. He gave us the best introduction to Amsterdam one could ask for. Very knowledgeable and a superb tour guide. Would recommend this is the best way to start off a visit to Amsterdam. Jan deserves five stars!

My husband and I had a great time on our tour with Jan. He is very knowledgeable about each part of the city he took us to and showed us places we'd never seen in previous trips to Amsterdam. We particularly enjoyed the Amstel river views and the Jewish quarter. We'd definitely tour with Jan again!

We enjoyed a wonderful 2 1/2 Rickshaw Tour with Jan's Fietstaxi. Jan was so friendly and informative. After seeing the highlights of Amsterdam, Jan asked us what we were interested in and he went out of his way to expand on our interests. He brought us to the National Holocaust Memorial Museum where we toured the building while he explained what it was like for the Jewish people living in Amsterdam and their fate. It was very sad, but we were glad we went. This was a wonderful way to see Amsterdam and we were fortunate to have Jan as our guide. Excellent tour, excellent guide. Thank you Jan.
