What You Can Expect

Small-Group Amsterdam Bike Tour

Small-Group Amsterdam Bike Tour

Explore Amsterdam the ‘Dutch way’ — by bike! Meet your small group near Amsterdam’s central station and receive a safety briefing before setting off after your guide.

Kick off your bike tour in the bohemian Jordaan Quarter, a labyrinth of narrow streets and canals. Pass by the Anne Frank House Museum, the building in which Jewish wartime diarist Anne Frank hid. Learn about the neighborhood’s originally modest beginnings before it transformed into the trendy district of boutiques, cafes and restaurants that you see today.

Journey further south and pass the Rijksmuseum, the Netherlands’ national museum, home to masterpieces by Rembrandt and Vermeer. Take a break in the lovely Vondel Park, before cycling across the Magere Brug, considered by many to be the most beautiful bridge in the city.

Then, follow your guide into Amsterdam’s Red Light District, and discover its fascinating — and racy — characteristics. Hear tales about this controversial neighborhood dating back to the 14th century.

Your 2-hour tour ends back at the departure point.

If you opt for the 3-hour tour, take in the same sights mentioned above, plus the house of famous Dutch painter Rembrandt. You'll also enjoy a slightly longer break in Vondel Park.

Really good fun! The host had excellent knowledge of the sites we stopped at which made the trip more interesting. I would recommend doing this tour early on as you get to know your way around the city. It is more enjoyable than riding around and having to consult your map every 5 mins and once you know the routes you can always ride around in your own time. Highly recommended.

This was an absolutely fantastic experience!! At first we were a little nervous about riding around the city having already walked around and witnessed some of the crazy cycling! However, our tour guide put us all at ease and she was fantastic! It was such a great tour and the time flew by! The bike was easy to ride and great fun

We highly recommend this bike tour. This is indeed an excellent way to get to know more about Amsterdam. Besides the very nice views - which get much closer to each other when we're on a bike rather than walking -, we get many interesting information about its History, local life and culture. Our guide, Lieke, was very nice, enthusiastic and helpful.

We used the Yellow Bike Tour which was excellent. Saw parts of Amsterdam that we would not have normally seen. Our guide, Izzy, was fantastic and the bikes were great.
