I've been on a number of biking tours and this one with Mieke was my favourite. Fantastic quality bikes, definitely the best I have encountered on a bike tour. The route was very scenic, perfect for taking loads of photos. I enjoyed the fact that this tour didn't stop every 200m and you actually got to stretch your legs! Would... More

Loved the route, the small group (8), four of us and one other family. loved the tour guide, Mieke, and the relaxing but informative tour to small town outside Bruges and back. Good stories too. Definitely recommend if you go to Bruges. only 3-4 hours

I'm not the most confident bicycle rider and yet I still found the pace of the tour comfortable and safe. Our lovely guide Mieke was very careful to point out the potential dangers and to outline the route and what to expect in advance. She was also very informative and a rich source of information. We stopped for drinks and... More

Great fun, good company. Lots of interesting anecdotes. We were shown an area we would have otherwise missed. We were lucky with the weather, beer and waffle delicious in Damme. Our guide Micca was excellent. It is a MUST.

Ok, so I absolutely loved this tour! We were lucky to get a cool sunny day, and it was nice to get out of the bustling city into the countryside for a couple hours. A good way to shake off an cheeky morning hangover! I would 100% recommend this. The roads are all very flat, its an easygoing pace- you... More

If not used to biking this was just about right length as easy and flat. Very interesting tour to near by town via canal and back via countryside. Very enjoyable.

We had a great experience on our bike tour with Mieke. Well worth the time and money spent. Be aware that you do bike through downtown Bruges for a very short time and as in any city need to watch for traffic. Mieke did an excellent job of leading our group, a total of 7 people. She always stopped at... More

This tour was the low point of our vacation. We picked up our bikes in central Bruges. Mieke took us on a harrowing route through town, dodging cars and other bikes. We finally reached the canal side route and pedaled toward Damme. The traffic eased up a bit, but Mieke raced ahead, leaving little time to view the beautiful scenery.... More

We were four pensioner cyclists choosing a sunny day to venture beyond Bruges and Mikke, the guide, led us. Altogether there were twelve in the party, all English speakers, and Mikke who was Bruges born, spoke in fluent English. In conversation at a cafe stop in Damme I learned that she is a tri-lingual graduate and very very clever with... More

We really enjoyed our bicycle tour. The tour guide Mieke was lovely and made you feel at ease instantly. The bikes were well maintained and and the route to Damme was beautiful and easy to cycle. Totally recommend this tour despite others that seem to have better reviews. You won't be disappointed with this one!
