Full description
Discover the beauty of Amsterdam and the surrounding countryside by bike. Cycle along the Amstel River, taking in views of the Skinny Bridge, the BlauwBrug, and the locks regulating the level of the water. Ride past historic houses that reflect the early town's prosperity.

On this 3-hour tour you’ll start at the harbor with the most beautiful view of the IJ River. You'll ride through the east of Amsterdam passing the 17th century Dutch East Company ship, heading to the Amstel River. Along the way you’ll see several famous landmarks, including the iconic windmill. 

Outside the city, in the middle of the Dutch polder, you’ll stop at a 15th-century farm that specializes in making cheese and clogs. You’ll find it hard to believe that the farm and windmills are such a short distance from the city.

After the farm visit you’ll cycle back to central Amsterdam. This tour is available at any time and from any place for private groups - just send your requests and an unforgettable experience in Amsterdam will be yours.

The guide was very nice and helped us navigate biking through the city which seemed intimidating at first, but he guided us very well and I felt safe. I wish he would have explained a few of the sights as we went along... we seemed to stop and pause for a bit when there was nothing to see.

We were very lucky to be the only twp people on the ride so it was a very personalized tour! It was a beautiful day and we saw that was promised.Our guide Rad was friendly, informative and great with local knowledge. The farm experience was very interesting, wish we could have spent more time cheese "tasting" as it was delicious!

Long beautiful bike ride, farm was cute and cheese was delicious. Wish we got or see a full clogg demonstration but did get to learn how they are made. Guide was very knowledgeable. Really loved going in a small group too.
