Trip Veluwe, around Nijkerk

Reviewed November 29, 2022

I had a fantastic tour day with Marco (Holland side car Tours),

The veluwe is a beautiful nature reserve where you can find planty of sandy roads.

The sound of Ural engine and the confortable side care gives a new dimension on traveling.

You have planty of time to look around and let the landscape pasing like a movie.

It's really relaxed and a little bid of adventure.

If you like to know more about the history of the Netherlands or especially the IIWO. Marco can tell you great stories.

I highly recommend to go on a trip with Holland side car tours.

Fantastic and unique experience!

Reviewed November 26, 2022

This was a fantastically unique experience! To drive through the city and the countryside on a unique WWII replica Ural with a sidecar.Everything you do on the motorcycle with the sidecar is fun. We are used to motorcycles and have our own at home, but with this vehicle it is totally different. With the sidecar, just going around a corner is fun :-)Marco explained the sights and the stories behind them and he was a very good host. He looked after us very well while taking us through the tour.We can really recommend this tour.The sidecar is the experience,  the beautiful sights are bonuses.

Sidecar tour with my daughter

Reviewed August 1, 2020

Sunday march 23th 2020 my 9 year old daughter en me did a 3 hours tour with Holland Sidecar Tours. My daughter was already familiar with a ride on a trike, quad and motorbike but she had never heard of a sidecar. When we found out that Marco Hupkes offers 2wd sidecar trips she really wanted to experience this. We were lucky to choose a sunny Sunday and took the 3 hour tour (the very last one before the severe Covid rules ;-)

My daughter was fitted with a safety helmet and strapped in a seat belt in the sidecar. I took place on the seat behind Marco after putting on gloves and a safety helmet. Even though temperature was barely above 10 degrees we were never cold. We were driven along beautiful rivers with castles and nice nature. There was even a 1 kilometre stretch of offroad, which was amazingly comfortable. The sidecar is really built for offroad, it takes bumps easy. Not as fast as other bikes but accelerating quick enough to experience the speed and it can do all terrain. We had nice photo shoot moments and a stop to drink or eat what- and whenever you wanted.

Marco explains very well how the bike works and you really do not need to do anything but holding on to sit behind him. You can talk loud during the ride and understand each other but better to ask questions about the surroundings, history and vehicle during stops. My daughter was just enjoying the ride in the sidecar and did not even feel the need to lean or hold on. The tour was over much too soon.
