Meet your guide and collect your rental bike (additional expense) at Amsterdam’s Central Station at the prearranged time on the morning of your tour. Start time and tour duration are flexible to suit your schedule, though a minimum of 5 hours and 25 km (16 miles) is recommended for the best experience.
Take a short ride to the starting point outside Amsterdam while your guide provides an overview of the landscape and itinerary options. Skip the city traffic and begin biking right in the picturesque countryside on relatively easy routes. Pedal past traditional windmills, rivers, canals, and country mansions built as the summer residences of Amsterdam’s wealthy families during the 17th and 18th centuries.
Take advantage of your art historian guide’s wealth of knowledge about the history and culture of the area. If you like, a traditional picnic lunch can be arranged including a variety of Dutch cheeses, bread baked from organic flour ground in a nearby mill, and various beverages (additional expense, please request in advance).
At the end of the customized route, return to Amsterdam and say farewell to your guide back at the original starting point.
