Hidden Gems Bike Tour Amsterdam
This bike tour will start next to Amsterdam Central Station. After getting a Dutch granny bike we will paddle into the famous Jordaan, the old working-class area before heading west into the 19th-century neighborhoods.
During the tour, we will pass beautiful canal houses, drawbridges, street-art, old industrial zones and ship-docks. The true hidden gems of the city. We will also take a ferry to see some of the hip places of the up and coming Amsterdam North. We will see lost cranes and industrial buildings at NDSM. This area is also famous for its amazing street art and graffiti.
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.
Please note that to join this tour, one must be 12 years or older!
