mini City Bike Tour

city bike tour 1

Got into town late?  Overslept?  Only have a couple of hours for sightseeing in Amsterdam?  If so Mike’s Bike Tours Amsterdam offers the ideal bicycle tour for you this year, a two hour city bike tour showing you some of the greatest hits of Amsterdam.

We will start with a short introduction regarding the rules of the road and other safety tips. After getting on the bikes we will begin the tour biking a few blocks east to the Skinny Bridge crossing over the Amstel river.  We then bike past the Hermitage Museum and in front of the Stopera (city hall and opera house) located on the Waterlooplein (which also houses a flea market Monday – Saturday.)

We then turn down some of the smaller streets and canals of the city making our way to the New Market and Red-Light district.  After that it’s the Dam with the Royal Palace and National monument before biking through parts of the University of Amsterdam, the Rembrandt and Thorbecke squares.

 The later half of the ride consists of the canal belt (celebrating its 400th birthday this year!!) and the Jordaan (the old working class part of the city) before heading back to our garage.

Please note, with this city bike tour being only 2 hours long we will not be stopping for a drink but we will be finished around 6:00pm so you will have plenty of time to have dinner before going out later that evening and sleeping in for a second straight day.

Our sightseeing city bike tour is not the least bit strenuous and is suitable for 13 years and above, as long as you can ride a bike confidently in city traffic and don’t mind seeing and hearing about Amsterdam naughty side (Red light district prostitution and drugs)! The mini city bike tour takes 2 hours in total and covers about 8 kilometers. Join us for a fun and informative ride.

Cost: only € 20, € 18 for students and seniors (+65) (bike included in tour price) and € 5 off if you have your own bike.  Cash and cards (Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, JCB, Diners and Discover) accepted in our shop, pre-purchase through the reservations system only possible via PayPal and/or credit card.

Group size: between 8 and 12 people in one group.

Our min City bike tour departs daily at 16:00 from the 1st of May through 1st of October. In the rest of the year  we only offer the mini city bike tour as a private tour option.

Weather: We provide rain gear – which can often be necessary in Amsterdam. (A note on the weather, if you come to town and it’s raining, you have two choices as we see it; either you sit bitching in your hotel room and don’t see anything, or you put a jacket on and come join us on the tour! Nobody has drowned yet!! But some have gone swimming).
