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!

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
