This was a very easy and enjoyable ride to the village of Damme through some of the local countryside. The only downside was we would have liked to keep cycling but unfortunately this wasn't an option.

We had a fabulous morning with Mieka on our very well equipped bikes and excellent commentary. We did book the day before by going to the Information counter at Market. They kindly rang and booked in for us. On the morning we met Mieka under the Belfry and walked a short distance to chose our bikes. The ride was easy... More

This EASY tour was really the highlight of our time in Bruges. We reserved as a couple and perhaps because of the less than perfect weather were two of only seven riders in our group. Mieka was knowledgeable about the towns of Bruges and Damme as well as the sights along the way. The bikes were 21 speed in good... More

I really cannot recommend this more highly. Mieke was brilliant - very friendly and knowledgeable. We had planned to do the boat trip in the afternoon after this bike tour but on return, we didn't feel the need to as we had seen an awful lot. Also having been in a fairly small group (which Mieke said was about the... More

This review may be backdated but I still think it's a must to do this. Coming from a small country in Asia with skyscrapers, this tour was a memorable experience. The tour guide brought us through long tall trees that look like a picture out of the movies. Cycling through the fields was an eye-opener and I never felt more... More

We met Mieke in the square and off we went on our bike ride. Must admit it was refreshing to escape the tourist crowd in Bruges (even in April). The country side is beautiful and Mieke was great at letting us know what the sites were all about. It's not a physically demanding bike trip and a great way to... More

Mieke was very friendly and informative on our trip to Damme which is a very nice place. would not have found the route back that Mieke showed us if we did this trip on our own.

We were a group of four visiting in late November. Mieke was a GREAT guide for our trip to the country side - she was flexible with us based on our travel schedule and showed us a great ride to nearby city Damme. Although the weather was a bit cold, we were all happy with the easy ride and the... More

This bike tour was great! Our guide Mieke, gave us some high quality bikes, all of which had names from the simpsons and then she took us on a lovely bike ride, through the streets of Bruges and then on into the countryside along a lovely canal. Occasionally we stopped and she provided us with some interesting facts, stories and... More

Got the idea from Rick Steves which also entitled us to a 2 euro discount! It was a great way to see the city with a good commentary from our guide. Great canalside patj to Damme lined with Canadian Poplars. Good break at Damme for a quick drink. Differant path back through verdant fields and WW2 Bunker sites. Superb feel... More
