What people are saying about Museumplein

What an experience to ride a bike in Amsterdam being a tourist, but definitely would repeat. We went to sides of the city that I wouldn’t know if I hadn’t gone in bike because of the distance. Also, visiting with a local provides you a better understanding and point of view of the pros and cons of living in such a remarkable place. The guide was super patient with all of us, considering the fact that riding a bike is not part of a day to day of some people.

Christian was an excellent guide. Knows a lot of the history, great explanation of what we were looking at at each site, and very well spoken english. Would absolutely recommend for solo travelers and couples/groups.

The tour and especially Bastion was a terrific introduction to Amsterdam. Patient and understanding with some participants who needed extra attention. A great look around and an excellent way to get your bearings.

its a great way to see Amsterdam. Wether you're comfortable on a bike or not its a good experience. Bastiaan was a lovely tour guide and happily answered any questions we had.

Great way to see the city. Bas did a great job explaining the history of Amsterdam. . I would totally recommend it.
