      Fabulous tour: You'll learn a lot and fall in love with Herman!
      Pim's tour of the REAL Amsterdam, Dutch culture and history is utterly brilliant - don't hesitate to book it! The history and stories Pim tells are super interesting and give you a real insight into Amsterdam and the people of the Netherlands. The tour is really relaxed and Pim encourages questions, which he answers honestly and openly - you'll learn so much! Brilliant as Pim is, he is outshone by Herman, the sweetest and smartest tour companion of all time. Pim doesn't hold this against him though - he's a gracious man.

      Perfect day, great tour and ride!
      A highlight of our trip to Amsterdam. Pim greeted us at our meeting place on time. He set us up our bikes and he took us through a section of Amsterdam that was away from hustle and bustle, yet so beautiful. Places we would never had seen on our own. Pim is passionate about what he does. He gave us insight to the history of what we were seeing and the Dutch culture. We were together ( a group of 6 humans and 1 little dog, Herman). Herman rode in a basket on Pim’s Bike or ran beside us. It was the icing on the cake! Thank you Pim! If you like to be outdoors and want to experience something like a local, learn about Amsterdam and the Dutch culture you will love this tour!

      Loved the local flavor
      Bill is a terrific guide, filled with interesting stories about the history of Amsterdam and the places we visited along the way. The bike ride was at a leisurely pace and everything was pretty flat. I’m really glad I chose this tour over other ones to really get some local flavor.

      Bills bike tour
      Bill was great and Henry(his dog)was my favorite. The bike around Bill’s neighborhood was interesting and beautiful. I learned a lot about Amsterdam. So, if you want a laid back, fun tour and learn a little, this is your tour. I am definitely now on the look out for Tony’s chocolate:). Thank you Bill.

      Ride like a local!
      This bike tour is an amazing way to see a the non-touristy part of the city and ride like a local! Pim is a cool guy, an excellent guide and his little pup, Herman, adds to the fun of the tour! Highly recommend this activity for a relaxing and enjoyable tour!

      AMAZING TOUR BY BIKE! Great intro to Amsterdam!
      Pim was an amazing tour guide. He helped us bike around parts of Amsterdam that were peaceful and beautiful with lots of stories and insights into culture and history. He even went above and beyond by taking photos of us for memories, and bringing his lovely little dog! I highly recommend!

      Lovely bike ride in Amsterdam
      We had a wonderful time with Pim on the bike tour. He is an outstanding host: he was attentive to everyone and kept the group together and safe, while showing us some beautiful sights as we enjoyed a bike ride together. We were blessed with wonderful weather, as well. 🌞For anyone considering this tour, I HIGHLY recommend it! We thoroughly enjoyed it. 10/10 would do again.

      Amsterdam as it was meant to be seen!
      All I can say is my family was so lucky to have Pim as our tour guide around Amsterdam. Not only was our tour informative - it was fun! Between Pim, his pup, and just getting to ride around Amsterdam on bikes, we felt like we belonged in this city. I hope everyone has the chance to have an experience like ours if they spend some time in this great city.

      A must book bike experience in Amsterdam
      Can't recommend Pim's bike tour enough (even in the rain) . All 4 of us loved it (2 teenagers included!) great local knowledge and stop off points (away from the tourist route) brilliant storytelling, passion and patience in Pim. Great guy, highly recommend his tour, especially if you're not the most confident cyclist - afterwards you will be!

    Fantastic tour, so enjoyable, informative and entertaining yet also safe and relaxing. Pim is a super pleasant person, full of good stories and great information / insights about Amsterdam. His loyal companion Hermann (pictured here) is the other star of the ride! This tour was a definite highlight of our stay in Amsterdam. Highly highly recommended!

    Extremely fun while also being educational! It was great to get the local perspective on Amsterdam/Dutch culture and to see parts of the city you typically don't get on similar tours. The pace was relaxed and it was a relief not to be biking in super congested routes. Definitely a high point of my time in Amsterdam!
