General conditions of Lex and the City private guided tours

Welcome to the general conditions of Lex and the City, provider of private guided tours in Amsterdam.

Here we go:

“Sporty? I’m not.”

Private guided tours on the bike - Passing by Rijksmuseum Amsterdam on wheelsLex and the City means by sporty: “using your muscles”. In our view, a walk is also sporty.
Even during private boat tours we encourage people to exercise. On large boats by creating a dance floor (Amstel | IJ) or by stopping a walk or Jeu de Boules.
Want to know more about what drives us every day? Read Lex and the City’s mission statement.


Number of persons per group per private guide

The maximum is 12 people per group, per private tour guide. Because we have the experience that a larger group poses a danger at crossings, we make it into groups of +12 people, two groups.
428 persons? 36 groups!

Alcohol on wheels is a no go.

Participants of the guided tours on wheels that arrive at the start of the sportive private tour and apparently have drunk alcohol before that are not included. Refunds are not possible.

Drinking alcohol during the break from the group outing by bicycle, scooter or skates is also not allowed.
If you do it anyway, you will take a taxi van back at your own expense and also take the bicycle, scooter or skates to the garage.
