Group event (+7 people)

A corporate event? A bachelor party or anniversary? From 7 people on, your tour will be accompanied on the Solex. After a short instruction you ride the classic Solex from the 60s/70s! Enjoy the beautiful landscape for which North Holland is known: meadows and water, old villages, bridges, cows and lots of birds. SusieQ knows beautiful routes and plenty of beautiful places to pause for a cup of coffee or lunch. Would you like something to eat in Amsterdam or Alkmaar after the Solextour? I would be happy to give you advice based on your wishes!

Choose from various varied routes, or completely tailored to your wishes:

  • North of Amsterdam: Discover gems such as Broek in Waterland, Monnickendam, Zuiderwoude, Durgerdam, Marken or Volendam.
  • South of Amsterdam: Drive along the beautiful Amstel and chic country houses towards Ouderkerk aan de Amstel, Muiden or the typical Dutch meadow area Ronde Hoep.
  • North Holland: also tour the Zaanse Schans, Spaarndam, the coast or even Alkmaar.
  • Custom made routes: In addition to the beautiful Solex tours that we currently offer, you can also compose your own route in the Amsterdam area. SusieQ likes to think along with you and can give you tips. Not everything is possible: you are not allowed to drive everywhere on the Solex. The most beautiful route is one with few traffic lights, takes place largely outside the city and has beautiful places to pause.
