Full description
Discover a picture perfect landscape on the outskirts of Amsterdam on a half-day bike tour of the Dutch countryside. Depart from the city center, close to Central Station, and transfer to the Waterland District, just 15 minutes north of central Amsterdam. Riding comfortable bikes, you can admire a pancake flat scenery of gentle brooks, wooden houses and, naturally a windmill. Led by an experienced guide, you will pass through picturesque villages and towns, pedaling alongside the banks of the dikes and waterways that gave the Waterland District its name. Reclaimed from the sea by the entrepreneurial Dutch, the land is as full of history as it is of water.

Enjoyable ~ 23km ride from Amsterdam to Ransdorp & return. The cycling pace was right, with some stops in throughout the journey, so that we could take some scenic photos and be nearer to the nature. Our guide, David, has pleasant characters. We’ve learned more about the history & geography of Amsterdam and Ransdorp from him.

David L. Was our guide and he was excellent. First, David is a really nice guy. He is professional and knowledgeable. He kept us save leaving and entering Amsterdam. A remarkable achievement even for a good cyclist. Our route included the wetlands, wind mills and small villages north of the city. A perfect ride and a perfect guide.

Great experience to get outside of the city center and see how others live in the rural areas of Amsterdam. Guided tour gives you the peace of mind to just relax and take in the sites of rural areas and smaller towns . Overall I had a great experience and recommend this countryside tour for all .
