Did you know that Amsterdam has more bikes than people and that only inside the city there are 400 kilometers of separate cycling paths? Amsterdam is the city of bikes! And by cruising the city on two wheels, you will feel like a real local!

Amsterdam can be also very busy and messy, and that's why our private guides want to take care of you. We will navigate the city and show you how to cycle through Amsterdam like a pro.

We have some suggestions for your bike tour in Amsterdam. We can go through some must see areas, take you to more quiet areas and give you an impression of the countryside by visiting surrounding villages.

What a wonderful way to see Amsterdam! Our family of four spent 3 hours touring Amsterdam with our wonderful guide, Tricia. The biking was very fun, and of course it was great to get so much information on history, architecture, the canals, and many interesting facts about Amsterdam. I highly recommend a bike tour from Toms!

Tom is charismatic and a wealth of knowledge on his home town and it was an absolute bonus that he is a professional photographer and not only able to show us Amsterdam’s hidden secrets but to also give us a photo memento of our cycle tour was just above and beyond.  — Greg - Canada - Tripadvisor

Private bike tour Amsterdam

As you might already know, Amsterdam is a compact city filled with intrepid cyclists. If you don't have much time in our city and want to know all about it or if you like the adrenaline rush, this is a tour for you. In a few hours you will get an overall idea of the city. During this private tour, you will see the most iconic sights of our city, like the Museum Square (where the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh are located), Dam Square and a traditional Dutch windmill. Together with your private guide, you will cycle along the canal ring. It’s the most beautiful area in town! But not everything is about the highlights. You will be delighted by the beauty of some laid back areas like the Jordaan. It's a residential neighborhood with beautiful old houses, cute canals and fairytale-like bridges. There we really enjoy visiting some hofjes, old hidden courtyards that allow you to travel  back in time. A ferry will take you to Amsterdam Noord which is the most fun part for us! We will visit the NDSM, an old wharf which nowadays hosts creative design and art projects, surrounded by super cool cafes and restaurants. We will pick one of them to have a delicious drink in while enjoying the view over the city.

I've traveled around the world and taken a number of tours but Tom is the only tour guide who has driven me to return for another tour.  Roberta - United States - Tripadvisor

During this bike tour, we would love to take you to the north part of Amsterdam, where we can visit new projects that are taking place in this completely different, old industrial spacious area in our city. We will cycle over the Nieuwedammerdijk with ancient wooden houses to Durgerdam. Since everything in Durgerdam occurs at a slow pace and in a homely manner, there is still a unique feeling of centuries-old Waterland harbor village along the former Southern Sea.

If you plan to visit Amsterdam in spring, we can not miss a Bike tour to the tulip fields from Amsterdam!

We cannot recommend Toms Travel Tours enough. From booking with Tom and having a detailed chat with him about what we’d like to do with our limited time in Amsterdam, to the tour itself. Our guide, Tricia, was absolutely wonderful. We were a little nervous about cycling around the city with our two children aged 10 and 7, but with Tricia we needn’t have worried. She was so great with our children and we covered a vast chunk of the city. Tricia, an experienced guide got the level just right - she stopped and told us about wonderful places as well as cracking on at a pace so we could get to the very south of the city to see the windmill. Tricia took us to places away from the tourist drag and gave a true insight into Amsterdam. Our children really enjoyed the tour - in fact it was the highlight of our trip to Amsterdam. Thank you so much Tricia and Tom.
