Here you find all the answers
These are a few of the questions we often receive. If yours isn't here, please contact us!
Do all of your bike tours have a guide?
Yes, all do have a guide.
What kind of tours do you offer?
We offer two kinds of guided bike tours: private and scheduled
How many people are the groups in scheduled tours?
Green Cow offers bike tours in a personal way. For this reason we keep our group sizes small, so no more than 15 people. Moreover, you can request a private tour if you wish. Please contact us for more information.
Where is the meeting point?
The meeting point is at Rep.26 bicycle shop. The address is Nieuwe Haven 147. You can find it here.
What do I bring?
Can I book a tour as an individual?
Yes, you can book tours individually or as a group. The scheduled tours are listed on the Calendar page.
How and when do I pay?
You can pay the guide after the tour. Our number one goal is to offer you a unique experience. We try to do so by offering you the Green Cow guarantee. This guarantee includes everything we offer to you (except for the weather – we’re sorry for that). In any case you feel unsatisfied with the experience you will receive the opportunity to pay nothing.
We're real cashcows and unfortunately, we don’t take cards or traveller cheques. Please bring cash to pay for your tickets.
Will I see a Green Cow?
In Holland organic farming is becoming increasingly popular. Several organic cow farms are based in the Green Heart of Holland where our bike tours will pass through. So yes, we will probably see several Green Cows on the way.
Where can I find the detailed schedule or route of my tour?
All of the tours we offer are carefully developed and selected. However, Green Cow aims to offer you a very personal experience. In many cases we adjust the program a little bit to your personal preferences. As such we don’t offer you a full-detail planning, nor do we provide route maps. What’s going to happen will remain a little surprise.
Oh no, it’s raining – will we go?
Yes, in almost every occasion Green Cow will do the tour. Only in very rare occasions (big thunderstorms or floods) will we cancel the tour. So far this has never happened. We will inform you ASAP in such cases.
Do you do pick-ups?
As we are a green company, we don’t use vehicles to transport people or bicycles. We will visit all of our highlights by bike and return by bike as a group.
What kind of bikes do we ride?
The bikes we offer you are conventional city bikes or cruiser with adjustable gears. In this flat country you will only need to shift gear going up a dike! These bikes are human powered.
What are the roads like?
At least 90% of the roads we take are paved (asphalt / tiles) and they are of very good quality. On some of our more countryside tours there might be short backroads that you can experience as a little bumpy. You don't have to worry about it - they are not even close to a dirt road or any kind of off-roading.
Are children welcome to join?
Yes, all younger ones are welcome to join but they should be under full supervision of an adult. As for all participants, they should be comfortable riding a bike (see next question) and understand general traffic rules.
Do I need to be an experienced biker?
All of our bike tours are low-level, and we think that any person who’s in reasonable shape can do them. Our longer trips do require some more energy, but we’re not racing, but enjoying the scenery. However, we expect you to be able to ride a bike and to feel comfortable with that. Especially in some towns you will be riding among other traffic. Please make sure that you are familiar with the traffic rules.
Do you offer helmets?
Helmets are not included in the fare, but can be rented on request. Please inform us beforehand if you wish one. Dutch people usually don’t wear helmets because riding a bike is perfectly safe.
