My partner and I had Mieke to ourselves on our bike ride to Damme. She was very sweet and informative. Despite how lovely Bruges is, it was excellent to explore a little way out and Damme (and the way to Damme) was incredibly picturesque. Highly recommend.

We had a great time. Mieke was a very informative and funny guide. She told us a lot about the history of the city and the visit to nearby Damme was a highlight. Very laid back and easy tour. Don't be hesitant if you are not a strong cyclist, Mieke was really attentive and went at a very leisurely pace.... More

Everything was great. The guide (Mieke) took her time to make sure our bikes fit - there were a variety of bikes to use. Just a few minutes of getting out of Bruges and we were in the lovely countryside on our way to Damme. Mieke was knowledgeable and an excellent guide. There were just four customers in our group,...

I scheduled with Mieke about a week in advance of my arrival to Bruges. She confirmed that depending on the weather we were a go. She confirmed via email again the day before -- and reminded to meet at the bottom of the bell tower. I went on a tour with another couple who had bikes -- she had a... More

I want to start this review off with a little reminder that-- I like to believe that traveling the world and getting to know the people in the places we go to is a very significant and valuable thing. We were lucky enough to meet Mieke and take the tour during our visit to Brugge. We visited in late April... More

I only called about half an hour before the tour but Mieke was there at 10.30 to take us on a very enjoyable and scenic ride along the Canal to Damme. Nothing much going on in Damme the day we did it but there are markets some days. Mieke was knowledgeable about the area and took us around Bruges on... More

Mieke was an excellent tour guide. She provided the right about of biking with history and adapted the pace and tour to our groups needs. I hadn't ridden a bike in over ten years and this was not a problem at all. The tour mixed Bruges, windmills, pasture lands, and the small town of Damme. I would highly recommend this... More

Perfect for amateurs. I have not been on a bike for ten years, but I felt comfortable. Mieke is very kind, helpful, and knowledgable. She outfitted my girlfriend and I with a good bike and helmet. This is a great way to see the city and the country. The route we traveled was along a canal that was very peaceful.... More

Did this tour with my fiancee and we had a lovely time. Our guide, Mieke, was knowledgeable, and she gave us a nice history lesson about the region, specifically the relationship between Damme and Bruges. The ride was both easy and picturesque with a stop in Damme for refreshments. (Hard to say no to beer and waffles in Belgium!) The... More
