Amsterdam Central Station
We start our tour next to the beautiful Amsterdam Central Station and opposite the famous parking garage for thousands of bicycles.
After meeting your guide and getting your bike, you ride straight into the quaint Canal District area and the Jordaan. You’ll have the opportunity to get comfortable cycling, while enjoying the stories of your local guide.
We start our adventure into the historic canal district where you’ll bike along picturesque canals, classic drawbridges, and countless canal houses – some more crooked than the other. You’ll find out how the Dutch had mastered the art of tax-evasion years ago.
Next, we make our way to a rather unknown area behind the train tracks. Because traffic is very limited and the houses are from the 17th century, you truly feel part of ancient Amsterdam.
We take a ferry to the north side of the city – known for its alternative counter culture. This former shipyard is now home to street artists whose work you can enjoy from the street. The area is a playground for any artist which is evident from the numerous art studios that are present. We continue to the architectural masterpiece of the Dutch Film Institute Netherlands, right across the water from central station. We take the ferry and your guide will take you back to the starting location, but not before sharing all sorts of quirky stories and personal anecdotes. Be sure to ask 😉
At the end of the bike tour, we’ll wind up at one of the city’s oldest bars nearby central station if you want to know your fellow travellers a little better.
