Boasting more bikes than people, Amsterdam is famous for its cycle-friendly culture. To kick off the two-wheeled tour, meet your guide at the Centraal Station and climb aboard a provided rental bike. Set off along safe and easy bike lanes and paths that wind through the city's most charming and historic neighborhoods. Along the way, listen as your guide shares insight into Amsterdam's rich past and vibrant modern culture.
Cycle past the oldest residence in the city, and learn the history behind other unique structures like the 350-year-old Graffiti House, the Trip Brothers house and the Dutch Theater. Compare the quirky Skinny Bridge and the spacious Torensluis, see the medieval chapels of the Begijnhof and stop at the Homomonument commemorating LGBT victims of persecution.
Be prepared for some special surprises along the way, such a sweet treat (hint: it may be the best cookie of your life!) and retellings of Dutch legends near the historic Nieumarkt area. Your guide can personalize the itinerary based on your preferences and will help you see this fascinating city through the eyes of a local. After exploring the charming alleyways, canals and markets of the famous Jordaan district, your 3-hour tour concludes back at the Centraal Station.
