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.
