Full description

Discover the sights of central Amsterdam 2ith an expert guide riding by your side. You’ll learn about the city’s culture, see important historical sites, and famous hotspots as well as lesser-known local favorites.  Start your journey near the central station, pass the impressive A’DAM Tower, and ride over to the Western Islands, which are filled with charming drawbridges, old warehouses, and chic artists studios.  Continue along the Brouwersgracht Canal and visit the trendy Jordaan and 9 Street districts flanked by indie boutiques, cozy cafes, and hip eateries. As you ride deeper into the city center, you will enter the Grachtengordel neighborhood and zoom past the Westerkerk (Western Church) and the historic Anne Frank House.  Feel the buzz of music and street performers around Leidseplein Square, a busy theater district with a buzzing nightlife.  After so much excitement, enjoy a pleasant break in the Vondelpark, the largest park in Amsterdam and the most famous park in the Netherlands. Feeling recharged, circle the Museum Quarter and ride through the narrow streets of the Bohemian-influenced De Pijp neighborhood.  Cross the iconic Magere Brug (skinny bridge), a wooden drawbridge over the River Amstel, and arrive at the famed Artis Zoo leading into the Maritime Quarter.  Admire the impressive replica of a 17th-century Dutch East Indian Company ship at the Salt Harbour, before returning to back where your bike journey began.

Amazing way to see the city!! Our tour guide Claudette was great. Some points of the loop were a bit chaotic due to the sheer amount of bikers in the city, but I guess that's as authentic of an experience as you can get! Highly recommend for those that may only have one free afternoon to tour Amsterdam.

Novice guide, I think… We very often set foot on the ground, and we regularly rode on spaces dedicated to pedestrians and not to cyclists. Otherwise, the circuit was very nice; and the practical explanation app. Although a novice, the guide was very nice, and she will improve without problem;)

This was THE highlight of Amsterdam for our group of 4. Rad was an amazing tour guide that made sure the team of 9 people stayed together and stayed safe. You get to see parts of the city you won’t see just walking around and you get enough history to keep it interesting without getting bored. We even had a break in the middle of the trip to get a beverage and relax for 20 minutes.
