Reviews8-day Sail & Bike Tulip Tour Read all reviews
My first time joining a biking tour on a sailing boat. I enjoyed biking on flat country road, cycle path in park and going through towns with less traffic. Seeing fields of flower beds is very enjoyable. The service of the lovely and friendly crew of Leafde fan Fryslan made the boat a home for us away from home. I especially like the food provided by chef Petr. I enjoyed the different varieties of fruit at breakfast and international cuisine as well the presentation.

The crew in this boat-bike tour made all the difference. Positive attitude, competent, accommodating and helpful are the qualities that first come to mind. Facilities are adequate with old-fashioned charm, and the equipment (bicycles) very functional for the trip length. I’m very happy with the experience.

The great crew that quickly handled any issue with a smile. Our biking guide went above and beyond to make our experience rich with history. The meals were way beyond expectations as well. I wouldn’t change a thing.

Excellent crew – Flores, Damaris, Marciji, Petr and Wieger were all amazing humans. Great sense of pride for what they were doing and yet, fun and entertaining. This crew combination was really, really fun!

This is a great option to the barge. The crew and tour guide on Mare fan Frysland (sailing vessel) were both friendly and efficient, which is not a common combination. Great food! Roomy and beautiful restored boat, and the basic cabin was plenty roomy for 2 who know how to pack. (The hot tub was a bonus!) Wonderful biking tours. Our guide was very informative as well as pleasant. I’ve done more vigorous, more “cushy,” and more expensive European biking tour with VBT and consider this a better value. I could have used a faster riding pace, maybe more independence, and more sailing, but I believe the bike tours and sail-raising were set for the common-denominator (“weakest-link,” etc) and that was the correct approach for a varied group. We were the 1st group of the season and the boat was not full, which added to the pleasant experience. We were concerned that we were going too early to see flowers and might fight cold weather, but it all turned out well…so I recommend you consider an early booking if you dislike crowds. Be aware that biking in North Holland can mean winds. It added to the challenge in a way that I liked, but not everybody felt that way. (That’s what the E-bike option is for.)
Thank you for sharing your experience on the Mare fan Frysland! It's great to hear that you had such a positive experience with the crew and tour guide, and that the food was great. The fact that the boat was roomy and beautifully restored, with a hot tub as a bonus, must have made for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. It's also great to hear that you enjoyed the biking tours and found your guide informative and pleasant. Finally, it's good to know that the winds in North Holland added to the challenge and were well-suited for those who enjoy a bit of a challenge. For those who prefer a more relaxed experience, the E-bike option is a great choice. Overall, it sounds like you had a fantastic trip and would recommend the Mare fan Fryslan to others. Thanks for sharing your experience! Warm regards, Romy
Booking process was first rate. The ship is superb, captain and crew go the extra yard to make sure everything is excellent. Food amazing. Brilliant guide who was very knowledgeable. Guests with age range from 14 to 78 all gelled. Great atmosphere all week.

Unsere Tour war vom 02.04. bis 09.04. auf der Leafde fan Fryslan. Wir möchten uns noch einmal sehr herzlich für diese tolle Woche mit Radfahren, Segeln und nicht zuletzt tollem Essen bedanken. Die Kommunikation mit der Crew war perfekt (Deutsch und Englisch), unser Radguide war auch für uns (wir sind individuell gefahren) eine große Hilfe. Die Stadtrundgänge mit ihm waren sehr interessant. Alle Crewmitglieder waren immer ansprechbar und ausgesprochen freundlich. Besonderes Highlight war der Segeltag. Dies war unsere 2. Tour mit Boat Bike Tours (die 1. war letztes Jahr mit der Fluvius, ebenfalls ein tolles Erlebnis) und vielleicht wird es auch nicht die letzte sein. Frank Böhme

Es klingt, als ob Sie eine wunderbare Erfahrung mit Boat Bike Tours hatten und es ist toll zu hören, dass Sie möglicherweise in Zukunft noch weitere Touren mit ihnen unternehmen werden. Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung! mit freundlichen Grüßen, Romy
