Overview

Over the course of approximately 3 hours we’ll take you through the most beautiful and interesting aspects of this city to learn about its rich and strange history as well as the weird foibles that make up Amsterdam's culture. We mix this with the observations and opinions of your guide. All of whom are well seasoned and eager to share their hard-earned knowledge. Biking is thirsty work, so we often stop towards the end for a drink at one of our favourite local drinkeries!

Highlights

  • Comprehensive tour of the city
  • Get inside tips from a local
  • Great overview and orientation of the city

After introductions with your guide, set off to explore Amsterdam like the locals do: by bike! With around 250 miles (400 km) of bike lanes and paths traversing the flat urban terrain, Amsterdam is a cyclist's dream.

Follow your seasoned guide around the city by bike, as they lead you to well-known local landmarks and lesser-known attractions. No one tour will be the same; each individual guide tailors the route to best show off their local knowledge.

You might start of at Museum Square, home to three of the city’s major museums including the Van Gogh Museum, then cruise onward to the bustling Dam Square to admire views of the classical Royal Palace.

Venture into the infamous Red Light District and observe how grand architecture sits side by side with seedy neon-lit alleys. Hear about the liberal drug and prostitution laws that govern the city, and let your guide point out interesting venues and nightclubs.

Afterward, you might slow things down on a serene ride through Vondelpark, a green oasis in the city, or journey through the much sought-after Jordaan district, a picturesque old working class neighborhood. Alternatively, seek out Anne Frank House, where the young diarist and her family hid from the Nazis.

Toward the end of the tour, sit down for a drink with your guide at one of their favorite local hangouts (own expense), then return to the departure point in central Amsterdam, where your tour concludes.

This was absolutely terrific! Highly recommend. Loved the guide. Not too hard getting around at all on a bike which was our concern with all the riders and narrow streets.

Our guide was great. The tour was good in that it took you off the beaten track and allowed you to experience daily living in Amsterdam.

What a wonderful experience! Biking around this bike-dominant city was so much fun and our tour guide Sander was incredible. He was very knowledgeable of the history, the architecture and the museums. I would advise this tour to anyone visiting the area!
