Amazing way to see the city!! Our tour guide Claudette was great. Some points of the loop were a bit chaotic due to the sheer amount of bikers in the city, but I guess that's as authentic of an experience as you can get! Highly recommend for those that may only have one free afternoon to tour Amsterdam.

Claudette was a fantastic guide. A bike tour is always a good way to see a new city. Yes, you will look like a tourist. Who cares? This was fun and relaxed and the history of the city was presented in a great way! We enjoyed it!
