Amsterdam is world famous for its cycle-friendly culture, even boasting more bicycles than people. To kick off the 2-wheeled Amsterdam bicycle tour, meet your tour guide at Amsterdam’s Centraal Station. Jump on your bicycle and set off along the easy and safest bike paths that crisscross the city’s most charming and historic neighbourhoods. Listen as your guide shares his or her insight into Amsterdam’s rich history and its current modern culture.
Cycle past the oldest residence, and learn about the history behind other unique Amsterdam buildings the one built by the Trip Brothers and the Dutch Theatre. Compare the so called Skinny Bridge (Magere Brug) at the Amstel river and the wonderful Torensluis bridge. See the perfectly preserved medieval chapels at the Begijnhof – a beautiful, hidden inner court. Stop at the Homomonument – Amsterdam’s monument for LGBT victims of persecution.
Be prepared for some very special surprises along the way, such as a tasty sweet treat (hint: it’s probably the best cookie you’ve ever tasted!). Hear some great retellings of old Dutch legends near the historic Nieuwmarkt area. Your guide will be able to personalise the itinerary based on your own personal preferences and will help you see Amsterdam through the eyes of a local. After seeing the charming alleyways, beautiful canals and great markets of the famous Jordaan district, your tour concludes back at Amsterdam’s Central Station.
