The tour was well organized and professionally run. The boat (The Fleur) is not super fancy but it is clean, comfortable and homey. The food was excellent and the staff made an effort to be warm and went out of their way to create an atmosphere of camaraderie among the guests. Everyone on our tour used e-bikes, but the route would have been doable without electric assist for anyone in moderately good shape. As the cabins are below water level the atmosphere was slightly damp (it was also fall, maybe not an issue in the summer) and this made it impossible to dry wet garments below decks and some guest had trouble with allergies. As this was a fully guided tour it was sometimes difficult to have any independent experiences. I had never been on a group ride before and found it frustrating not to be able to stop if I wanted a drink of water or to take a photo. It was also stressful riding as a unit; crossing traffic en mass and keeping the exact pace of the group at all times. If you love the fun of having friends to ride with, you will enjoy, but personally I will pick a self guided tour in the future so I can enjoy the actual riding part of the trip. I would definitely recommend this tour company to friends and family. It was a really good value for the money and they run their business well.

I booked this experience as a retirement gift for my wife. She loves to cycle and cycling in Europe was a dream. Now it became true. I have mobility issues and stayed on the vessel all the time where I had a hoot with captain Stefi and her crew of three. Cheryl had the time of her life, 335 kilometres with lead Thomas and sweep Francine. The vessel, Fleur, accommodates 20 passengers, but each is treated as a king or queen. Fleur has secrets in every nook and cranny, and the meals were sumptious. We started with 10 stranger riders, 6 new “staff” and parted 11 days later as warm friends. We would join Fleur again for this priceless experience

Loved everything and everyone. We will do another trip in the future. Food was excellent. Guides were excellent. I rented an e-bike, loved it! Would always rent one. I might say that on this trip there were only one size of e-bikes to rent: Large. I am 5’8” so I was fine but there were 2 women on the trip that were 5’1” or 2” and they looked liked kids of the big heavy bicycles. They also had more difficulty handling them. I live in the country and I’m not used to bicycling in cities with a lot of people. It was a learning curve for me, but honestly I thought it was a great experience. I will do it again next year for sure!! It was a great adventure!

The trip was well organized, excellent guide, lovely countryside, varied rides each day, boat was quite good as was the food made by Greta. Tour company should be looking at either having all participants on ebikes or dividing up the group. Would definitely recommend this trip to others.

I had a great time. The kilometers per day was a bit more then advertised but Ok. Saw lots. Enjoyed the uniqueness of the Gandolf and crew. Having time to visit cities was a big benefit of the 11 day tour. It makes it more of a holiday then just biking. Our tour leader was very good and not having to figure out the route was a real bonus along with knowing where to find the good coffee, lunch and afternoon drink stops. Fellow travellers were wonderful…good group and the right size.

Cabins are small; *very* small for a large person. The crew is fantastic. Captain Hans is a capital fellow. Be aware that the Wi-Fi is next to useless – not surprising for a boat – so don’t expect to do any remote work. Food is good and hearty but not gourmet fare. It is a fantastic way to see the low countries and make new friends. Maximum cycling per day is around 57 km, which is quite easy for a novice. All in all, i would recommend it to anyone.

We enjoyed this ship and especially the friendly and helpful crew! Hans is an excellent captain! The biking was grand. Visiting many small villages was a highlight. Our bike guide, Patrick, was outstanding. I highly recommend this bike trip!

A great way to see the Northern European countryside up close and personal. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and attentive to everyone’s requests. So nice to arrive at our daily destinations to find our comfy river barge awaiting us with dinner. I’d definitely recommend Boat Bike Tours to anyone who has a desire to experience a slice of real Europe.
