There are just a handful of destinations in the world that were built for biking, and it’s very fair to say that Amsterdam is definitely one of them! Join this quirky private Amsterdam bike tour that gets you on the city’s most beloved form of transportation accompanied by a stories and tales from the city’s past and present. You’ll feel like a true Amsterdammer in no time!
You’ll begin your private Amsterdam tour by meeting with your local guide in the city centre and hopping on a Dutch back-pedal bike. Your Amsterdam bike tour adventure is inspired by Pete Jordan’s “In the City of Bikes”, a tale of bike culture in the city throughout history, which lends an intriguing narrative to the day’s adventure.
We’ll weave our way through Amsterdam’s history and growth by starting out downtown and then making our way out to the northern dijks (dykes). Along the way we’ll hit up historical sites in the financial district and get an up-close look at the city’s defences, learning how windmills, canals, and walls helped build this nation and its people.
The sheer volume of bikes and cyclists in Amsterdam will be apparent throughout your tour, from a waterfront stop that’s home to no less than 500 bikes parked in stalls to thrilling infamous intersections where at least 30 bikes of all shapes and sizes whiz by every minute!
By the time you’re done, this Amsterdam bike tour will have you cycling and feeling just like a local.
