What you'll do

We will meet under the Water Tower near Cafe Restaurant Amsterdam. I live right around the corner and will tell you a little about the neighborhood. After that we will take 10-15 minutes to make sure everyone is comfortable on their bike.

Our first stop is Amsterdam’s most iconic windmill. From there we head to Westerpark and check out its beautiful art sculptures. Just behind Westerpark we'll visit a neighborhood called Spaarndammerbuurt. It is famous for its architectural style called The Amsterdam School, which greatly inspired Gaudí.

Next we will visit the Houthavens (the former Lumber Port) which is currently under transition from an industrial and polluting part of town into a sustainable residential area. From there we'll take the ferry over the IJ river and head to the NDSM wharf in Amsterdam-North. We'll see loads of street art, graffiti and pop-up art from local prospective artists.

Crossing back over the river IJ we will head to a completely untouched part of the old city. There we will see the canals and old canal houses in their authentic setting without so many people around. Finally, we'll head back to Westerpark and end the tour with a refreshing drink.

Where you'll be

During the bike tour we will see a nice mix of art, architecture, history and my personal favourite hang outs in Amsterdam. We start with Amsterdam's iconic windmill. I love Westerpark for its many art sculptures. Spaarndammerbuurt showcases some of the finest architectural wonders of The Amsterdam School. Later we will cross the IJ river to check out the NDSM warf where many local underground artist come together. I love this place for its vibe.

yay...we did Pims Tour for the second time now! It's just the best way to get to know all the cool amsterdam places. I love Pims stories and personal asides; he's a very friendly and philosophical character...we'll always think of "dutch pragmatism" now. : )) highlights include westerpark, north amsterdam/docklands and the wonderful dutch expressionism building school. highly entertaining & totally germfree! xxx

This was a truly original and interesting experience, highly enjoyable for the whole family. Pim was personally involved in his tour and took us to places that mattered to him and that we would never have seen otherwise. A great way to discover Amsterdam off the beaten track!

Pim had a passion for bike-riding culture in Amsterdam and for taking us to unexpected and unique places that were off-the-beaten track. He designed a trip that fit our needs perfectly. He was gracious and hospitable and shared his passion and insights with us. He went the extra 100 miles in connecting and helping. Highly recommend. We have been to many countries and on many bike tours and this was one of the best.

Pim takes you off the beaten track and shows an interesting side of Amsterdam that you would otherwise not explore. Bicycles are so much part of the Dutch culture that any visit to the Netherlands without a bike ride is really incomplete! So get out there and experience it!
