    Default Amsterdam - too many cabs?

    Hi, I'm new in Amsterdam and realised that there are SHITLOADS of pedicabs... Well, that's generally good.

    When I asked for the hiring prices they told me a range between 165 and 180 EURO per WEEK!

    I think that's too much. Is there an operator with better offers (eg. not electric cabs)? How much do the Dirvers earn in Amsterdam? Sure it was good over X-Mas and New Year but now there will be less tourists...

    Is the pedicab business over saturated in Amsterdam or is it worth to pay 165 Euro to use a pedicab for 7 days?

    I'm just back from a week there at Xmas. Have to admit i was horrified by the rickshaws. Didn't see a single one without a hub. You could hear them hum as they went past. Most looked pretty rough. Maybe a couple old Maximus knocking about, but mostly Turkish knokoffs and streetfighters.

    Maybe the nice ones come out over summer?
