Receive an insightful introduction to the Dutch capital as you visit an eclectic selection of prominent landmarks and cultural secrets; depending on your guide and the weather, expect an itinerary that features top sights like Museum Square, home to iconic institution, the Van Gogh Museum.

There was limited information about Amsterdam on this tour and the only place of the top 10 places it went to was opposite Anne Frank house and Vondelpark. Expected more info about historic buildings but didn't get any.

FAST RIDING GUIDE

Guide just took off with no warning and rode fairly fast and most of us had a hard tome keeping up. Also, it was our understanding that the tour included the red light district, it did not. Not that we were interested in the services offered there, just would liked to have seen it.

Dear Janet, we are very sorry you where under the impression that we visit the Red light district on our City bike tour. We have noticed that Viator and TripAdvisor Experiences has changed our City tours product text without informing us and are now listing 2 spots that we don't visit on our tour (Dam square and the Red light district). We are in the process of trying to get them to change it so that no one else will end up being disappointed like yourself. I trust that our guides were able to show you some other awesome areas of Amsterdam instead.

It was a lot of fun to ride a round town like a local, ringing my bell at all the tourists. The tour guide Adam was informative and the tour covered all the bases. I haven’t ridden a bike in years. Apart from a few hairy moments I didn’t fine it too difficult
