If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour
There are just a handful of destinations in the world that were built for biking, and it’s very fair to say that Amsterdam is definitely one of them! Join this Amsterdam bike tour that gets you on the city’s most beloved form of transport and to those hidden gems favoured by the locals. You’ll feel like a true Amsterdammer in no time!
You’ll begin your Amsterdam tour by meeting with your local guide in the city centre and hopping on a bike. From here, you’ll head out into the city’s oldest warehouse district. Your local guide will tell you all about this area and what it’s most famous for, letting you in on all the local know-how.
From here on this Amsterdam city tour you’ll head towards De Waag, a remnant of the city walls that dates back to the 15th century. These days, De Waag is surrounded by locals living in the Red Light, an area which houses coffee shops, restaurants, and even an organic food market. You’ll make some stops here to talk about the area and learn more from your expert local guide.
As you bike Amsterdam, you’ll also have the opportunity to admire some of the city’s ultra-modern buildings. You’ll continue from De Waag over to the city’ newest library terrace, where you can see the city sprawl out below. This is the perfect resting spot to grab a coffee and chat with your local guide, as well as take those classic Amsterdam pictures of views of the city.
After this, you’ll continue on this Amsterdam tour by riding along the Amstel Rive and waterfront areas, to capture even more iconic Amsterdam photos and discover the city from all angles. This tour really highlights some of the great engineering and entrepreneurial spirit of the Dutch. By biking around all these neighbourhoods you’ll get to see so many parts of Amsterdam that many visitors might not, and with a local to guide you you’ll get all the insider knowledge to really get to know the real Amsterdam.
Your Amsterdam bike tour will finish up in Dam Square, where your local guide will be happy to give you more tips and recommendations for other places to see in the city, or give you directions back to your accommodation.
