Mieke was a great tour guide (including being very patient and accommodating with an annoying, manipulative member of the group!) The scenery was so picturesque, the pace was fine and her historical stories were much enjoyed. Thumbs up!

This was a great way to tour Bruges and the route to Damme. Our guide was friendly, open and knowledgeable about the city and the history. We shared the tour with another English couple, a French couple and a young woman from the US. Everyone got along really well, which enhanced the experience. The weather was sunny, which also helped... More

My sister and I were interested in taking the bike trip to Damme, but as it was early November other bike companies were done for the season. Still, we met our guide at the Bell Tower and though it was only the two of us, she was willing to take us. It was a cold morning, but nice to get... More

Like some other reviewers, we found that the two of us were the only people who had signed up for the tour, at the end of the season. Mieke was knowledgeable and easy to talk to, and she dealt with an unusually busy Sunday morning: we witnessed many parts of a Survivalist challenge along our bike route to Damme and... More

This was my favorite part of my weekend in Bruges. Mieke was so sweet and took me and one other gal out on our own private tour around the city and to Damme. Mieke grew up in Bruges and was very knowledgeable about the area and had good information to share with us on our ride. She was very accomodating... More

This tour was disappoint in many aspects, but I will start with the positive. The bike ride to Damme is beautiful and the town is well worth visiting. I highly recommend following the canal out to Damme and back on a bike you rent yourself. Having gone on the tour and read the 1 star reviews, I can tell you... More

My girlfriend and I reserved a tour spot for a Friday in June. For better or worse, we were the only people to show up for the tour. We agreed to pay the 30 euros person Meika requested we pay because there were only the two of us. Then, we were off to pick up our bikes and begin the... More

Mieke met us near the clock tower in the main square. We were her only cyclists that day. She has a minimum of 4. As we were 3, we were thankful she didn’t cancel the tour. First we walked 5 minutes to the garage where she keeps her bikes. They are good quality and comfy hard tail mountain bikes. We... More

We spent three days in Bruges and this was by far the best attraction for us. Tree lined, flat and traffic free cycling. Mieka was a font of local knowledge/history and always gave the option of stopping for photo's or refreshments. Cycling to Damme is easy and well worth a mornings activity we had seven in our group and so... More

For 25 euro I think the tour could have gone for longer and could have shown us more of Bruges. It was suppose to go to about 2pm but we were back before 1:30, after we had already spent quite a lot of the time sitting at a cafe in Damme. You really don't get enough riding time for the... More
