On the 2-hour 'Small City' bike tour of Amsterdam you'll explore essential landmarks with a friendly, English-speaking guide. This knowledgeable local is also fluent in Spanish and can provide multi-lingual commentary if required.
The journey gets underway outside the Yellow Bike Office on Nieuwezijds Kolk. Here you'll be introduced to your guide and fellow cyclists. After a brief overview of the bikes and their safety features (bells and lights) the tour itself will get underway. Note that the bikes are also equipped with a frontal storage rack, so anything you're unwilling to carry on your person can be placed here.
Across the 2 hours you can expect to see the Westerkerk, the Anne Frank House, and other areas of the city normally inaccessible to large vehicles. One particular highlight that combines astounding architecture with natural scenery is the Museumplein, where participants will cycle past the iconic Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk and more.
The mid-point of the tour is marked by a short break amongst the trees and lakes of Vondelpark. The Red Light District is also an area you'll explore on the Small City Bike Tour.
