With the assistance of a knowledgeable tour guide, take in the sights of Amsterdam's central area. You will learn about the way of life in the city, visit significant real places, well-known places of interest, and lesser-known neighborhood favorites.

Ride to the Western Islands, which are full of chic artists' studios, old warehouses, and charming drawbridges, after passing by the impressive A'DAM Tower on your way to the central station.

If you follow the Brouwersgracht Canal all the way to the trendy Jordaan and 9 Street districts, you will find hip restaurants, cozy cafes, and independent shops all around them.

As you ride deeper into the city center, you will enter the Grachtengordel neighborhood, which includes the Westerkerk (Western Church) and the historic Anne Frank House.

Street performers and live music fill the air around Leidseplein Square, a lively theater district with a pulsating nightlife.

In Amsterdam's Vondelpark, the city's largest and most well-known park, you can unwind.

Circling the Historical center Quarter and riding through the narrow roads of the Bohemian-influenced De Pijp area will re-energize you.

The renowned Magere Brug (skinny bridge), a wooden drawbridge over the River Amstel, can be crossed to reach the renowned Artis Zoo, which leads into the Maritime Quarter.

Must join if you like biking. The tourist guide Mr.Bas is very nice person. He explained the sights in great detail and paid attention to our safety. The owner of the bike shop is also very helpful and interesting. My sister and I enjoyed the tour very much. Can’t wait to join more tour through this app.

This was undoubtedly one of the best things we did. Bastion, our guide, was very understanding, knowledgable and laid the foundation to our holiday in Amsterdam as it was the first thing we wanted to do in the city. They also managed to secure a carrier for our child which made it more special. One of the top activity to do!

I've wanted to ride a bike around Amsterdam for years, so being able to do this tour was an absolute thrill. If you're not a regular cyclist, having a guide is by far the best and safest way to cycle the city. You don't have to worry about the road rules, where to go, checking a map, or getting lost! You can just totally focus on your surroundings. This makes the ride all the more relaxing and fun.

High quality bicycles, great route. Our guide was very personable, friendly and knowledgeable. Sometimes not easy to hear guide when group were not directly in front of him. 3 hours was the perfect duration. A suggestion would be to have the guide have a pole/flag with a volunteer having same at end of the chain of bikes as 3 times we lost those at the back.

What an experience to ride a bike in Amsterdam being a tourist, but definitely would repeat. We went to sides of the city that I wouldn’t know if I hadn’t gone in bike because of the distance. Also, visiting with a local provides you a better understanding and point of view of the pros and cons of living in such a remarkable place. The guide was super patient with all of us, considering the fact that riding a bike is not part of a day to day of some people.

This was a really interesting bike tour which took in a large part of the old part of Amsterdam. The tour guide, Bas, gave a good amount of information and made sure everyone was included. He tried hard to find a couple of people who lost the group but they found us late. Thank you, Bas, for an informative and enjoyable tour. It made Amsterdam a much more interesting city.

If you want to feel like a "real Amsterdammer" on a bike, you should book this tour. Very nice guide, seen a lot - BUT: the Dutchman doesn't know the 1.5 m overtaking distance, that's more like 0.5 m. Mostly you're on bike paths, where you split the road, it gets damn narrow. Our children are 8 and 12, so watching it as parents makes you sweat. Furthermore, it is sometimes difficult to follow the guide in full traffic, so a high-visibility vest or, for example, a flag on the bike would be use...

Overall it was a good experience. But for people who are not used to riding bikes, it can be quite a challenge. We didn’t expect to be traveling 25km during the tour so we were caught off guard. Thankfully we selected e-bikes, so it wasn’t as tough. I think there were too many people in the group also.

I don’t remember our English speaking guide, but he was super nice , explained very well at every stop we did and he was always looking and waiting for the whole group. You wouldn’t be able to ride a bike in the city unless you have an experience guide.

Very delightful 3-hour trip by bike around the entire city, from south to north and from east to west. Despite a very warm day it was a very nice and “easy” tour. Our guide (Rad) was very knowledgeable and nice. We had the tour on a Monday morning which was perfect from a traffic point of view (weekends are usually busier).
