    Please check further with HAT Tours for a further understanding of the many issues surrounding this tour. It was sub standard in every way with the one exception of the leader who was most patient and knowledgeable about biking and the area. Hat tours... Show more

    We loved the trip and everything about it. We especially found the guide to be very interesting, informative and nice to be around. He had an incredible knowledge about everything as he talked.

  • How strenuous is the cycling?

    Holland is a great place to cycle and relatively flat, so quite an easy cycle. There are also electric bikes available for an additional fee if you did think that perhaps you couldn't cope on a regular pushbike. And we do need medical forms signed off before you travel. So provided your doctor thinks you are ok to travel, you should be fine on an easy option cycle.
