Small-Group Amsterdam Bike Tour

Meet your expert guide near Amsterdam’s central station, and after putting on your helmet, hop on your bike and away you go!

The 2-hour bike tour begins with a ride through the labyrinth of narrow streets and canals that comprise the bohemian Jordaan Quarter. Originally a poor neighborhood, it’s now home to an eclectic mix of artists, students and young entrepreneurs and boasts trendy boutiques, traditional cafes and modern restaurants. The area is also home to the legendary Anne Frank House Museum, which you’ll cycle past, learning from your guide about the significance of the building -- the hiding place of Jewish wartime diarist Anne Frank.

Continuing your journey further south through the city, pass the Rijksmuseum, home to masterpieces from Baroque painters like Rembrandt and Vermeer. Enjoy a short break in Vondel Park, the city’s largest green oasis, before riding across the Magere Brug, often touted as the most beautiful bridge in a city that has more than a thousand of them.

As a last highlight of your tour, your expert guide will take you into the heart of Amsterdam’s Red Light District, a must-see for any visitor to Amsterdam. This controversial neighborhood is actually Amsterdam’s oldest, and has history dating back to the 14th century. Discover its fascinating – and racy – characteristics as you ride through with your guide.

End the tour back at the start point, and having traveled the ‘Dutch way’ and discovered the gems of Amsterdam, you can proudly count yourself as an Amsterdam insider!

Upgrade to 3-hour tour:
If you choose the 3-hour tour, you'll ride past the same sights and see the same attractions mentioned above, plus you'll pass by the house of famous Dutch painter Rembrandt. You'll also have a slightly longer break at Vondel Park.

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.

Great tour on bike paths of Amsterdam--can see far more by bike than walking. Guide was enthusiastic and informative. Ask for map of route as that would help to go back to sights to investigate further.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

One of the highlights of our stay in Amsterdam! Our guide whose name I don't remember, sorry! was very friendly and extremely informative about all the places we saw on the tour. If you come to Amsterdam and don't do a bike tour like this one, or at least rent a bike and wander around on your own, it would be much less of an experience.
