What To Expect

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 tour ends back at the departure point.

Informative and fun
Andrea_R, Oct 2019
Would recommend. We had a good group of people and bikes are the best way to see Amsterdam. Also helps you be a better pedestrian (since you know how to ride and bike in the city) to avoid getting hit.
Stunning City!

Best way to see Amsterdam by riding a bike. My only criticism was wishing that the tour guide was more informant of the sites visited.Basic information given, but a beautiful bike ride!
Nice Ride
Adam M, Aug 2019
Great tour to get a good overview of the city. No complaints, just a nice ride through the streets. WE especially liked the ride through the outskirts.

Great way to see the city! Good sight seeing stops and history! Our guide was a bit shy but still had a great interaction with the group!
Bike ride in Amsterdam
Louise_R, Apr 2019
Great tour guide named Ethan. It was a wonderful experience. I just wish there was a more of an introduction into the road rules of the city so that we were more aware of what to expect. Some of the busier roads were pretty crazy. Other than that, great!
Awesome bike tour!

RoseAnn F, Aug 2018
My husband and I loved this tour and took it as soon as we arrived in Amsterdam and dropped off our bags. The young man who was our tour guide was both entertaining and knowledgeable. It's a great way to get oriented and be part of the bike culture. Not difficult at all.
Definitely a crazy experience, but...
Asha G, Jul 2018
Definitely a crazy experience, but it's kind of a must-try when you're in Amsterdam! Biking through gardens and the famous Amsterdam sign was cool. It was a little hard for me to keep up with the group while weaving in and out between other bikers, pedestrians, small trucks and cars, along narrow streets.
Just OK...good to get acquainted...

SeanRyan_A, Mar 2018
This tour is a must in Amsterdam - we booked it on the first day we arrived in the city. Guide gave us a summary of all the highlights present in Amsterdam including some history on the attractions!
We liked this tour. Our favorite...
Mary S, Jan 2018
We liked this tour. Our favorite part was biking through Volderpark and stopping for a warm beverage. The only thing I would change was some of the content about Amsterdam that our guide provided. I would have liked more about Amsterdam today and in the last several decades and less on the founding of Amsterdam and the Golden Age.
FUN!! Best way to get familiar with...
Teresa P, Nov 2017
FUN!! Best way to get familiar with Amsterdam and the canal system. So easy to get around. On a negative note, the meeting place is an out of the way, hard to find place. I had to call the office and ask several people along the way before I finally found it. Our guide was terrific but we took a long time to get started and organized. Once we did get going she started the two hours so we didn't miss any time. She was informed and throughout the tour she showed us where we were and where we were going on a map. She was also quite good at answering questions. I would do the three hour one next time. Time went by fast and I will now include a bike tour in every city from now on. Be prepared for the weather in the Netherlands -- it is not unusual for a short rain every now and then. Dress appropriately and you will be fine. Our tour did not stop for a little rain.
Fantastic guides, tour and itinerary...

Great tour of city. Meeting place was easy to find and tour guide was informative and pleasant. Amsterdam and biking is fun, but there are soooo many bikes that biking is a challenge. Glad we booked tour, as we saw a lot of the sights, in a short amount of time.
