Explore the most beautiful area's of Amsterdam by bike!

Your tour starts in the old city center of Amsterdam, where you will learn everything about the old harbour of Amsterdam(redlight district). If you are interested we can even visit a former window brothel in the narrowest alley way of Amsterdam.

After this we visit the Canal Ring, built in the 17th century and now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We bike along the banks of the canals, admiring the colorful house boats, narrow merchant houses, and many of the city's most famous monuments, such as the Westerkerk and Anne Frank House.

After a small break for a free cheese tasting, we bike towards the Leidseplein, the Vondelpark and the museum district.

We end our tour with a visit to a beautiful courtyard, church and wing of the Amsterdam museum.

This tour is the ideal way to get to know your way around Amsterdam quikly! A great mix of history, current changes in town. cool places and a lot of humor.

A Recent Review of this tour

Ian was fantastic. Great knowledge of Amsterdam. The tour flew by as he made it so interesting. We covered a ton in 3 hours. Ian spoke great English and gave us great suggestions for other things to do. The bikes we used were fantastic I would highly recommend Ian to everyone who wants an overview of Amsterdam. Ian took us to a chocolate shop he owned and treated us to wonderful nibbles
