Do you do tours with dogs?


We do, we didn't call ourselves doggy bag tours for nothing! We started out with our own dog coming along on tours, so why not yours as well. Just make sure the dog is comfortable sitting in a cargo bicycle, and of course we will go through lots of parks so the dogs can play and enjoy themselves as well.




In what languages do you do your tours?


Our tours are in English, Dutch and German but we are able to provide you with a guide to do tours in French or Spanish.




What if it rains or snows?


If we can alter the starting time to make sure we'll have dry weather. If the rain starts in the middle of a tour we do have ponchos for our guests. If it snows and the roads are slippery we usually change the tour from a bike tour into either a walking tour or a tour by vehicle (if the groups are not too large).
