  • To begin your Amsterdam Bike Tour you should meet your local guide at the city centre and hopping on a Dutch back-pedal bike. Your Amsterdam bike tour adventure is inspired by Pete Jordan’s “In the City of Bikes”, a tale of bike culture in the city throughout history, which lends an intriguing narrative to the day’s adventure. Starting from the center of town, pedal towards the city’s oldest warehouse district. We’ll weave our way through Amsterdam’s history and growth by starting out downtown and then making our way out to the northern dijks (dykes). Along the way we’ll hit up historical sites in the financial district and get an up close look at the city’s defences, learning how windmills, canals, and walls helped build this nation and its people. You will have time to admire some of Amsterdam’s ultra-modern buildings as well, with a stop at the newest library terrace, where you can see the city sprawl out below and have maybe a coffee and chat with the guide. The sheer volume of bikes and cyclists in Amsterdam will be apparent throughout your tour, from a waterfront stop that’s home to no less than 500 bikes parked in stalls to thrilling infamous intersections where at least 30 bikes of all shapes and sizes whiz by every minute. By the time you’re done, this Amsterdam bike tour will have you cycling and feeling just like a local.
