City Bike Tour Amsterdam
Mike’s Bike City Tour is a great way to discover Amsterdam
Follow a professional local guide through the quaint canals and winding cobbled streets of the city and discover an eclectic selection of sights on and off the conventional tourists’ trail. On our Dutch grandma Bikes we will see the city like a real Dutchman.
Over the course of approximately 3 hours we’ll take you through the most beautiful highlights of Amsterdam. We’ll pass canals, drawbridges, the Anne Frank House, Rijksmuseum, an old fort, and much more. You’ll learn about Amsterdam’s rich history as well as the foibles that make up Amsterdam's culture. We mix this with the personal stories, observations, and opinions of your local guide. All our guides are personable, knowledgeable, and fun. We always have your safety in mind, so you can enjoy your bike ride responsibly. To soak in as much of the city as possible, we’ll take you for a drink somewhere along the way.
Here at Mike’s Bike Tours we understand the value of personal perspective. To make sure that your Amsterdam city bike tour is entertaining, informative, and genuine, we make sure our guides are knowledgeable and give them the freedom to speak to their own passions. In other words, we don’t ask our guides to read from a script. Each guide gives a different tour, sometimes varying day to day. All our guides are intimately familiar with Amsterdam and we ask them to let their personal experiences inform their tour. Think of our guides as charismatic ambassadors, striving to show you a side of the city and culture that would be hard to find on your own.
