A-Bike Rental & Tours - Vondelpark , Tesselschadestraat 1E, 1054 ET Amsterdam, Netherlands

The meeting point is only a 3-minute walk away from Leidseplein (easy to reach by tram). We start at the bike shop of our partners of A-Bike next to the entrance of Vondelpark. We hope to meet you there!

This activity will end right where it started.
Greet your guide at a central Amsterdam location and receive a short safety briefing before climbing onto your state-of-the-art cycle. Set out at a leisurely pace, following your guide along part of Amsterdam’s 250-mile (400-km) network of bicycle lanes.

Receive an insightful introduction to the Dutch capital as you visit an eclectic selection of prominent landmarks and cultural secrets; depending on your guide and the weather, expect an itinerary that features top sights like Museum Square, home to iconic institution, the Van Gogh Museum.

Hear of the country’s liberal laws that legalize marijuana and prostitution and cruise past popular nightclubs on your way to Vondelpark, a green oasis in the heart of the city. 

Discover the attractive Jordaan district or uncover the tragic history of Anne Frank as you visit her perfectly preserved house. Before your tour concludes, enjoy a refreshing drink (own expense) in one of your guide’s favorite hangouts and then return to the original departure point, where the tour concludes.

We all loved this experience , great tour of the city with some fantastic background to Amsterdam . Couldn’t have been better. Loved every minute . Cycling around Amsterdam is the perfect way to see it and you’re high up on the bicycles too so you get a great view .

The cycle tour guide was extremely knowledgable and friendly. Kept us all safe on a busy Easter weekend in Amsterdam. It was a little chaotic in the shop when we arrived and the tour started 25 mins later than we expected. All in all a good experience.

Thanks for your review. The Easter weekend is always the most busy part of the year, which delayed the tour a little.

There was limited information about Amsterdam on this tour and the only place of the top 10 places it went to was opposite Anne Frank house and Vondelpark. Expected more info about historic buildings but didn't get any.

FAST RIDING GUIDE
JANET_F
, Oct 2019
Guide just took off with no warning and rode fairly fast and most of us had a hard tome keeping up. Also, it was our understanding that the tour included the red light district, it did not. Not that we were interested in the services offered there, just would liked to have seen it.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2019
Dear Janet, we are very sorry you where under the impression that we visit the Red light district on our City bike tour. We have noticed that Viator and TripAdvisor Experiences has changed our City tours product text without informing us and are now listing 2 spots that we don't visit on our tour (Dam square and the Red light district). We are in the process of trying to get them to change it so that no one else will end up being disappointed like yourself. I trust that our guides were able to show you some other awesome areas of Amsterdam instead.

It was a lot of fun to ride a round town like a local, ringing my bell at all the tourists. The tour guide Adam was informative and the tour covered all the bases. I haven’t ridden a bike in years. Apart from a few hairy moments I didn’t fine it too difficult

Great way to see and learn about the city of Amsterdam. You have to be alert on the bike at all times due to volumes of people and transport along the way but I loved every minute of the experience and would recommend Mike's bike tour to all!
