Full description

Discover the sights of central Amsterdam 2ith an expert guide riding by your side. You’ll learn about the city’s culture, see important historical sites, and famous hotspots as well as lesser-known local favorites.  Start your journey near the central station, pass the impressive A’DAM Tower, and ride over to the Western Islands, which are filled with charming drawbridges, old warehouses, and chic artists studios.  Continue along the Brouwersgracht Canal and visit the trendy Jordaan and 9 Street districts flanked by indie boutiques, cozy cafes, and hip eateries. As you ride deeper into the city center, you will enter the Grachtengordel neighborhood and zoom past the Westerkerk (Western Church) and the historic Anne Frank House.  Feel the buzz of music and street performers around Leidseplein Square, a busy theater district with a buzzing nightlife.  After so much excitement, enjoy a pleasant break in the Vondelpark, the largest park in Amsterdam and the most famous park in the Netherlands. Feeling recharged, circle the Museum Quarter and ride through the narrow streets of the Bohemian-influenced De Pijp neighborhood.  Cross the iconic Magere Brug (skinny bridge), a wooden drawbridge over the River Amstel, and arrive at the famed Artis Zoo leading into the Maritime Quarter.  Admire the impressive replica of a 17th-century Dutch East Indian Company ship at the Salt Harbour, before returning to back where your bike journey began.

We had a lovely time bicycling around Amsterdam. Even though we were here a few days prior to this tour we learned a lot and got a chance to experience what it is like to bicycle in a city filled with tons of bikes which is truly interesting and challenging to say the least. The tour guide was very nice and provided many a chance to stop and hear much about the different areas of the city and we had plenty of time to take pictures as well. We would definitely recommend this tour.

This was undoubtedly one of the best things we did. Bastion, our guide, was very understanding, knowledgable and laid the foundation to our holiday in Amsterdam as it was the first thing we wanted to do in the city. They also managed to secure a carrier for our child which made it more special. One of the top activity to do!

This was a really interesting bike tour which took in a large part of the old part of Amsterdam. The tour guide, Bas, gave a good amount of information and made sure everyone was included. He tried hard to find a couple of people who lost the group but they found us late. Thank you, Bas, for an informative and enjoyable tour. It made Amsterdam a much more interesting city.
