Poll Smits has an easy way about him. He provided a wealth of information about the history of the city and much more, but did so in a light-hearted way and with humour that kept our attention. He clearly knows a lot about the city and is enthusiastic - heart and soul. Good (new!) bikes. Managed to let us see... More

Our guide Poll Smits had a deep knoledge of Antwerp past and present, taking the group to parts of Antwerp many people will miss if not on a tour. Antwerp is a fascinating city, with a great story to tell and this is the ideal way to do it. Antwerp is not too big to get around and the bikes... More

If you want to discover the city of Antwerp in a fun and active way, then a bike tour is the way do it. The 18 kilometres do not seem long when you look at the sights and listen to the explanation. Only on a bike-tour and with a guide, you'll notice spots that are not always mentioned in the... More

Here's why Antwerp By Bike is so great: it's like visiting Antwerp with a new friend who engagingly narrates the historic, cultural, literary, and economic aspects of the city in an easy-going and original way. As previous reviews have pointed out: Antwerp is a very bike-friendly city, which makes it all the more fun to explore "met de fiets". My... More

You can see so much of the city in only 2 or 3 hours on bike. 'Antwerp By Bike' offers mainly group tours, but during the summer you can also join individually on Saturday and Sunday (1pm, Steenplein). So definitely worth checking out with some friends or your family.

Antwerp by Bike is a great activity, especially if you wanna get a cool overview of the city's highlights in few hours. Biking allows to move faster and thus, allows you to see way more. Guides are knowledgeable and I think it is a nice balance between talking and biking. Special thanks to our guide - Jacques - for his... More

The group was quiet large and therefor a bit difficult to go through traffic en listen to the guide. But she did an excellent job en i would surely recommand this to other people.

To discover a town on the bike is a very nice tour to explore a city and see something which is a bit outside the city center. The guide we had was great and told a lot of nice stories and gave very good background and history information. Since Antwerp is basically flat it is no great effort to do... More

Together with guide Jacques we did the Harbour Summer Theme Tour. In a very friendly way, and an appropriate speeed, Jacques told us so many funny details and anecdotes about Antwerp and its harbour! A very good thing is that 'Antwerp by Bike' does not cycle with very large groups. As soon as > 20 participants are expected, a second... More
