Our Reviews

My first communication with these guys was over the phone, they seemed extremely patient from the very first moment.
When we arrived we found a huge operation ready for any of need.
We rented 4 bikes. 1 with a seat for a 1yo, 1 with a larger seat for a 4yo and 1 double bike for me and my mother in law.
All bikes in perfect shape.
The guy in the store gave us maps and directions and off we went.
Great experience, and a great way to see Amsterdam.

We decided to rent bicycles to tour Amsterdam since we believe it was the right way. When we arrived the staff was very helpful and explained all the details from pricing, insurance, were to return and how to secure our bikes. You can choose a handbrake or back brake bike for a cheap price for all day. The bikes we were given were in good condition, moved fast and help us maneuver in the city. I definitely recommend this rental!

Hired a MacBike today. The bikes were in excellent condition and we were able to cover a lot of ground around Amsterdam in a short period of time. Great way to see the city.

One cannot leave Amsterdam without having cycled the city! We rented from MacBike Amsterdam, they were extremely friendly and helpful. They catered to all our different needs. For 3 hours we rented bikes for 7 euro each which was extremely well price. Initially while out cycling we were quite nervous however you soon realise that the cyclists rule the roads out there. You become much more confident after just a few minutes. Overall, we were delighted with the service provided and the sights we got to see.

We rent 2 bikes for a day (24 hrs). Bikes were perfect, very light and speedy. Very good lock as in AMS there are some episode of thefts. Next time in AMS I am gonna rent bike for sure from them.

We decided to rent bikes for the whole family (2 adults and 3 children) although we were not sure if it was a great idea. Turns out that it was the best thing that we did in our trip. There is no better way to see Amsterdam and feel like a local. I recommend this to anyone.

I’m gonna keep it short: Pretty good and fast bikes, VERY friendly staff with great English skills and you get two huge locks for your bike so it’s close to impossible that your bike is getting stolen.

Some other bike rental stores are probably cheaper than MacBike but it’s very convenient that there is MacBike store directly next to Amsterdam Centraal (the main station).

We were initially only going to rent bikes for the day, but we ended up keeping the bikes for three full days. We went to MacBike’s location near the Leidesplein, which was centrally located near Vondelpark and easy access to the historic center. The staff basically said to keep the bikes until you are done, since you pay for everything at the end of your rental time. They just need a credit card or passport to reserve it (they make copies). Only ended up being around 13.50 Euro per day per bike, which were in good condition and came with locks and bag straps. Cannot recommend biking enough for exploring some of the city’s outskirts (which ended up being our favorite).

We had -so- much fun riding around Amsterdam on rental bikes, I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the city and would even say this is an absolute must. Prices were reasonable, and the bikes were sturdy and pleasant to ride. When near Amsterdam Central, pay these guys a visit.

Each time we visit here, we hire bikes from this company. They are very friendly and helpful. Bikes are good quality and well maintained. Various options of hire are available and costs are reasonable.Best to take out the insurance of 3 euro.Never had a problem with the bike hire.Great value for money and the best way to see and get about Amsterdam.It.s a must do when you are here. The traffic system is great as you have your own lanes and lights etc.This makes it easier to follow and get around.

Amsterdam is one of the world centres of daily biking. If you arrive and need a daily-use bike, the place to go is MacBike. Good bikes, good locks and of course, Amsterdam provides bike paths, parks and a bike culture like no where else. People on bikes zip around with a special radar, moving swiftly and steadily. They spin along, lean into corners, go across crowded intersections with a sixth sense steering clear of obstacles, cars and other bikers. MacBike bikes are solid and heavy with chain guards so no pant legs get caught. They also provide good maps for getting around. As a Montrealer blessed with the challenges of slopes and grades wherever one bikes, Amsterdam’s flat landscape with canal and river vistas is a nice glimpse of Paradise.
