What you'll do

Explore greater Amsterdam by bike with an expert guide

After familiarising ourselves with our bicycles and the local rules and etiquette, we spend the morning cycling through quiet Amsterdam neighbourhoods on the outskirts of the city centre visiting parks, scenic lookouts, canals, seldom visited neighbourhoods, and learning about the culture and history of this wonderful city.
We will stop for lunch (not included) at a typical Dutch cafe to fuel up then we take a ferry over the IJ to the north side of Amsterdam. Here we will leave behind buildings and roads for fields and country lanes as we make our way through the countryside.
During the afternoon we will be exploring quaint villages, local farms, and of course pass by a traditional windmill. We will do all of this while we traverse this beautiful landscape on top of dijks protecting the land from flooding. All the mysteries of how the Dutch live below sea level will be revealed!

I'm from the far away land of New Zealand. I have been a black jack dealer, a dock worker, and a history and geography teacher. Now I'm a tour guide in Amsterdam and I love it! I have spent a lot of time exploring on my bicycle and I can show you the many sides and stories of Amsterdam.

Where you'll be

We will be in many different areas throughout the day all over the city and its surrounding countryside. Routes will vary but can include: The lovely neighbourhoods of the Jordaan, Prinseneiland, De Pijp, The Plantage, and alongside the IJ.
In the afternoon we can choose from the villages of Ransdorp, Schellingwoude and Zunderdorp which dot the countryside.
We will avoid central Amsterdam.

Loved the casual conversation – more like biking with friends than a tour. Really enjoyed meeting the other traveller in our group. Especially great experience if you want to bike Amsterdam but are a little shy about biking in the busy city. Thanks Blake for making my first Airbnb experience a great one!

Blake ran a fantastic morning / afternoon in Amsterdam. We got to see a side of the city we never would have otherwise, and by bicycle as well! Blake described the history of the villages we rode through and landmarks we passed. We rode with a small, fun group of people and enjoyed a fantastic lunch at a pancake spot halfway through the journey. Highly recommended!

We enjoyed the route and the scenery, it also felt safe because we went out of the city to the countryside. Beautiful and we were lucky to have had a lovely sunny day!

Blake took us on a pastoral view of Holland. It was the perfect contrast to our stay in Amsterdam. He was interesting , engaging and very personable. Cycling through the countryside seeing quaint farms and villages not to mention all the canals was a highlight of our trip!
