City Bike Tour Amsterdam

Mike’s Bike City Tour is a great way to discover Amsterdam

Booking information

Follow a professional 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.

Over the course of approximately 3 hours we’ll take you through the most beautiful and interesting aspects of this city to learn about its rich and strange history as well as the weird foibles that make up Amsterdam's culture. We mix this with the observations and opinions of your guide.  All of whom are well seasoned and eager to share their hard-earned knowledge.  Biking is thirsty work, so we often stop towards the end for a drink at one of our favourite local drinkeries!

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.
