We started our day by taking a free walking tour with Sandeman's which was fantastic. Our guide mentioned that he was also taking the Dutch Countryside Bike tour that afternoon. It sounded fantastic so we purchased tickets. The actual tour itself was great and the countryside

Hello The Family E, Thank you for your honest feedback about your recent tour of Amsterdam. We always appreciate it when guests take the time to let us know about their experience so that we have an opportunity to improve our service. We are sorry to hear that the Countryside Bike Tour was not to your liking. Each freelance guide we work with has their own style and personality, which we encourage them to express on their tours; it’s what keeps tours promoted by SANDEMANs unique and interesting across our network. We feel this adds a personal touch that makes tours promoted by SANDEMANs fresh and unforgettable, but it may also mean that the tour’s stories and sites are not in line with every guests’ preferences which, unfortunately, can be a difficult situation to avoid. While on the whole, the vast majority of guests are extremely satisfied, we do state on our promotional material that all the tours do differentiate from one another due to the individual nature of the guides we work with. Again, we are very sorry that you had this experience and that you felt like the bike ride was too rushed. Please be sure that we have shared your comments with our local team so that they can bring it up with Ilya. If you wish to talk further about your experience, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at violeta@neweuropetours.eu Thank you once again for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We hope this experience will not prevent you from joining us again in the future. All the best, The SANDEMANs Team

I went on the Free Walking Tour with Jacob and it was GREAT! His perspective as a native of Amsterdam and his knowledge of the city’s history was wonderful. He kept the group engaged by asking questions, making fun jokes and offering interesting lots of historical info! I would

My family of 5 went punctually to the meeting point for the bike tour at 2pm today. Met up with a lovely lady who helped us register. After the tourguide, a Russian-US man named Ifran (my dad did not manage to properly catch his name), arrived; he kept suggesting to us to change

Our worst experience ever! Please avoid any service from them. We book a country side bike tour online and pay the fees. We reach the spot 15 mins before the scheduled time. All good so far. Then just seconds before the start, our tour guide tells us that he cannot take us as

Hello BobbyLuvs2Travel, Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor and for choosing us in Amsterdam. We really appreciate your feedback as it helps us to continue making improvements and ensure that tours and experiences promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe meet the high standards that travellers expect. We regret that we were not able to offer you the tour you booked in Amsterdam. It is indeed uncommon that we cancel a tour due to lack of participants. However, as the guides we work with are freelancers, in some very rare cases, they may decide not to go ahead with the tour if the group is too small. This situation was very unfortunate and I understand that this must have been incredibly upsetting for you and your group, and may well have caused further disruption to your itinerary. In case you have not been offered a full refund for the tour cancellation yet, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at violeta@neweuropetours with your booking details and I will be very happy to personally take care of the process. We have already shared your feedback with our operations team and hope that we can make it up to you in the future in any of our cities and that we may show you this was an exception to a usually excellent level of service. Kind regards, The SANDEMANs Team

NO one showed up! Free walking tour
We showed up at the right place and time and no tourguide showed up! That is really disrespectful and inexcusable.
