Explore hidden art and culture in Amsterdam by bike
From $51.40
Overview
Knowing the best places to experience Amsterdam’s artistic subculture can be difficult. Skip the crowded tourist attractions and discover off-the-beaten track cultural highlights on a bike tour of trendy suburbs and often-overlooked landmarks. Along the way, discover historic architecture, travel by ferry, and finish your tour at a microbrewery to re-energize with a complimentary beer and snack.
What to Expect
This experience will start in Amsterdam Westerpark in front of an old water tower. Then we set out to explore the history, art and culture of Amsterdam in classic Dutch fashion: by bike. We will end in a small brewery for a nice local brewed beer. Along the way, we’ll see modern architecture like the EYE Film Institute Netherlands and we will show you hidden art, nice cafe’s to hangout, old factories and neighbourhoods most people miss.
We’ll pass some of the most beautiful canals in the Canal District and Jordaan as well as former shipyards from the 17th and 19th century. While pedalling, we’ll pass historic drawbridges, an old Russian submarine, small canalhouses and see some of the most beautiful street art and graffiti at NDSM area.  We’ll also hop on a ferry at two different times to see parts of the upcoming Amsterdam North.
The tour ends in the microbrewery Troost, one of Amsterdams newest breweries. They have more than 10 beers on draft and also several non-alcoholic alternatives.

Time: 2pm – 5.30pm
Included:
– Bicycle

Stephan was super awesome and provided a great experience. We got to see more local areas of Amsterdam outside the norm. We loved the old ship island converted into art free for all - wouldve been something we wouldve never found on our own. He...More

Great tour, slight shame about the bike

Really enjoyable (if a bit cold) tour that showed a side of Amsterdam that we would never have seen for ourselves, with street art that's a huge relief from all those solemn art galleries. Stephan is friendly enthusiastic informative and a good teacher and he...More

Hi Peter, Thanks for your nice review and feedback. Amsterdam bikes are normally heavy (steel) and with pedal brake. There were other options. And don't worry we brought two of the bkes to the graveyard (not thrown in the canal this time) and changed them...More
