What attractions do you cover?
Each tour is different and we make no guarantees that a certain attraction will be visited any given tour. However, as a general rule, we will during the 3-hour tour strive to cover Nieuwmarkt, The Old Church, Dam square/Royal Palace, Waterlooplein Market/Amsterdam New City Hall, The Red Light District, Magere Brug (The Skinny Bridge), The Museum Square and Vondelpark. On the 1.5-hour tour you can expect to see just about half of the above mentioned attractions. However, if there is a certain sight or attraction that you would really like to see, please feel free to ask the guide before the start of the tour.
What level of biking-skills is required?
In order to participate on one of our tours, you must have experience in riding a bicycle. All are welcome, who can bike at a fairly slow pace in a foreign urban environment. These tours are by no means designed as a type of workout. All tours will be at a fairy slow and steady pace, in order for you to appreciate the surroundings.
Is it safe to bike in Amsterdam?
Yes. When you arrive in Amsterdam you will quickly discover how bike-friendly the city is. The main concern in terms of bike-safety, when doing a tour with us, is the other cyclists around you. Before the start of our tour, we will go through a couple of basic safety-rules to follow when we hit the road.
Do you provide helmets?
We do provide helmets. During booking, you are able to choose the amount of helmets you would like. We charge 3 € per helmet.
Will there be food and beverages on the tour?
We do not serve either food or beverages on the tour, however you are more than welcome to bring your own with you, as long as you are able to bike. On our 3-hour tour we usually make a stop at a local food market, where you can try a big variety of foods and beverages.
Are children allowed on the tour?
No. The tours are not suitable for children or people with poor health.
