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

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.
