Full description
Discover the sights of central Amsterdam on a 3-hour bike tour. With an expert guide riding by your side, you’ll learn about the city’s culture, see important historical sites, and famous hotspot 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.

This tour was one of the highlights of my trip to Amsterdam! Red was a very knowledgeable guide and also cracked some good jokes along the way. Three hours seems like a long ride but time went by so quickly! We also had a little break where we enjoyed a beer with everyone on the tour. I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about Amsterdam with the typical experience of riding a bike in the city.

I recommend this 3h tour. Our guide (Mona) was great and being with a small group (8 pers) makes it very nice. We had an awful weather with heavy rain the whole time but our guide could not do anything about that. I wish I can redo the tour with a dry weather.

It was a very nice experience! The guide was very helpful and shared a lots of information during the tour. With bikes it is much more to see than from a boat-canal trip. There are parts of Amsterdam that you will never see if you do not take a bike-tour!
