Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Amsterdam Bike Culture Tour: Off the Beaten Path

Lesser-known neighborhoods

Greet your professional guide at a central Amsterdam location and receive an interesting introduction to Amsterdam’s obsession with two-wheeled vehicles, a passion emphasized in Pete Jordan’s bestselling book In the City of Bikes

After a short safety talk, cycle through Amsterdam’s glamorous financial district and pass buildings like the Old Dutch East India Company. Listen to illuminating commentary from your knowledgeable guide as you glide past quaint bridges, winding waterways and landmarks like the de Gooyer windmill and the Rijksmuseum. 

Admire the Maritime Museum, housed in a beautifully preserved 17th-century naval storehouse and then climb aboard a ferry travelling to north Amsterdam, a vibrant area that has recently undergone a radical transformation. 

Cycle around the protective dijks and then enjoy a whistle-stop tour of places mentioned in Jordan’s book. Return to your original departure point and bid your expert guide farewell.

Fantastic way to see the suburban Amsterdam! Where and how people live. Our guide was the owner of the company and took us to a great bakery and on a ferry to another island. Very informative and fun!

Amsterdam is truely a city of bikes, and there's no better way to see it than by bike. Most bike lanes are completely seperate from city streets and the ubiquotous trams. But, without a guide, you'd miss so much. This was a great way to see the highlites and learn a bit about the present and past of Amsterdam. Bikes are comfortable, safe, and easy to ride. There are no hills to climb, so anyone can take advantage of this delightful tour.

Great bike tour of the central and northern parts of this fascinating city.
The highly knowledgeable guide provided much insight about the history
and character of the city. The visit to neighborhoods north of the city was
especially interesting. A very enjoyable bike tour.

Tour guide was amazing! He gave me a one-on-one tour off areas of Amsterdam and nearby areas that I would normally not have encountered. We visited parks, nearby towns, and areas within Amsterdam that are not normally seen by tourists. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who likes to ride bikes and explore beyond the touristy areas.

This was a great adventure. We enjoyed our bike ride through the city while learning about bicycle riding and the rules. The guide was extremely helpful. We are going back with friends and will take this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

On this Saturday morning I was the only client for my guide, Arthur, who turned it to a private tour. Being a Saturday, the bike traffic was less which can be quite hectic. It also provided a larger tour of the city that a walking tour could not provide.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

Sean was a great guide and made the day very enjoyable. We ended up being the only 2 people on the tour which was awesome. It was a rainy day but we still were able to see all the sites and have a great ride! We learned a lot of history and also passed/saw a number of places to come back to later in the day. A little pit stop for coffee and goat petting was perfect : We would absolutely recommend Sean and this tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Sean, the owner of Urban Adventures, is GREAT. We had a great time biking around town and would recommend this tour to others. Check out UA's website for more tours. We also did the Food Tour with Sean and that was awesome.
