Full description

See almost everything of Amsterdam on a private bicycle day tour. You will pass by the famous canals, and also see the city off the beaten track, for example, the gems of the Industrial Age, the architecture of the Amsterdam School, and the contemporary architecture of the 21st century. On this bicycle tour, you'll go at a slow pace and use as many quiet streets and reserved bicycle lanes as possible. You don't need to be an experienced cyclist and there is no hurry. 

During the tour, there will be time for several stops at interesting locations where your personal guide will tell you about the history and the architecture of these locations. The tour is tailor-made and can be customized.

It’s up to you if you want to be on the road for 4 hours or the whole day. If you want a lunch break or two, it’s up to you. Feel free to contact the organizers for any special wishes. Some highlights of what you'll see along the way:

- Medieval Amsterdam - The city of the Golden Age - The gems of the Industrial Age - The architecture of the Amsterdam School - Amsterdam during WWII - Postwar modernism - Contemporary architecture of the 21st century
