Wonderful week on the Wadden Sea. The crew made the experience so effortless and made the ship feel warm and welcoming. The other passengers were friendly and chill. And the biking routes were beautiful and easy to navigate. I joined by myself and the crew and other passengers made it fun and easy to have a great week.

Great experience, the combination of sailing, biking, dining and breakfast. Helping to hoist the huge sails was an extra thrill. The self-serve bar gave it an at home feeling. We experienced a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The crew are a very important part of the package. We had an amazing crew, couldn’t have asked for more!!……. Not to forget the beautiful places we visited by bike and boat.

Absolutely great holiday on board a very comfortable sailing vessel with daily cycle rides through the Frisian landscape, visiting villages and small towns. Great mix of cycling and boat travel, where possible under sail, and culture with opportunities to visit museums and galleries. Comfortable accommodation and good meals provided on board. Highly recommended.

Just returned from a fabulous trip on the Mare fan Frieslan. Lovely cycling on the islands of Texel and Terschelling, swimming in the beautiful sea and following smooth tracks through sunlit woods. Great crew – always went the extra mile. Fabulous food – good as any 3 star restaurant. Thanks to Petr, Jorik, Tiemu, Marvin and Mathys for making our holiday so very good.

Good trip. Nice boat and bikes. Disappointing amount of hidden charges. I thought the advertised amount was all I had to pay but they kept asking for more money for extra things. Even when they accepted that one of the charges fell outside the terms of their small print they demanded it on the boat causing an embarrassing scene. It tarnished my memory slightly.

Hi Joe, Thank you very much for your feedback. How nice to hear that the ship and bikes were to your liking. We understand that you are disappointed that you had to pay fuel surcharge on board. Unfortunately, this is the reality as a result of political measures and developments as a result of the very regretful developments in Ukraine, fuel prices around the world have risen extremely and unexpectedly. Nevertheless, we hope for better times and hope to welcome you back on board in the future. Kind regards, Team Boat Bike Tours.

Heerlijke week varen en fietsen. Mooi schip, hele fijne bemanning. Super kok. Perfect ontbijt en diner. Texels bier van de tap is heerlijk. Al met al een aanrader.

This was a truly wonderful experience, between sailing and biking. The staff was great on all levels, particularly as I was the only native English-speaker (with no German or Dutch, despiite French and Spanish ;-), and the only person travelling alone. The only concern I voice on a self-guided tour is that people should either be given the basic bike tools (aside from tire repair), or told to bring their own. It so happened that the bike rented had two issues during a ride (screws that needed tightening, making it impossible to continue), and while we managed to find people in a small town with tools, the difficulty could have been avoided had the bike been carefully checked before renting. Tools, in any case, would be a good idea.
