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.

“Great was to see Bruges!”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

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 sights outside of Bruges. Would do it again if I ever return!

“Fantastic activity!”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

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 legends about the local area... we found her very informative and a lovely lady who we both got on well with. If we are ever back in Bruges then we will definitely be going on another bike tour with Pink Bear!

“An Interactive and active way to see the city of Bruges and the scenic Canal path to Damme”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

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 good Memory of Bruges!

“Fun outing”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Great way to spend 4 hours in Bruges. The bikes were well maintained with fat shock absorbing tires and shock absorbing seats to make the scenic cobble stone ride easy. Mieke was very informative and personable. We saw the serene part of Damme that we never would have visited otherwise. The trip to Damme was very scenic with the poplar trees and windmills along the canal. I can't think of a better way to begin the day. Note, if you have never or rarely ridden a bike, it may be challenging to get on one for a three hour bike tour so it's best to be comfortable on a bike first. A+. Would do it again.
