We Bike Amsterdam

We Bike Amsterdam, Who are we?

We Bike Amsterdam is a group of enthusiastic and local guides, united by a passion for Amsterdam and cycling. In 2013 we started this collective with the purpose to show people the real city of Amsterdam from a local perspective. Meeting people from all over the world and sharing our knowledge about the city is what we love to do.

Locals here ride their bike every day and Amsterdam is considered to be the biking capital of the world. Therefore we believe the only way to really experience this city is from a cyclist ‘s perspective. So join us and hop on one of our bike tours to discover Amsterdam like a local!

We Bike Amsterdam

What do we do?

We Bike Amsterdam started in 2013 with a bike tour of Amsterdam ‘s hidden gems. On this bike tour through the historic city center of Amsterdam, we focus on the hidden gems and secrets spots. Of course you get to visit historic landmarks and see important sights but we also take you to the backstreets of Amsterdam and ride off the beaten path to those tucked away courtyards and secret gardens. In 2016 we started our countryside bike tour. On this amazing ride through scenic landscapes of Holland you learn about water management and how the Dutch live below sea level. Visit picturesque villages, an old windmill and bike over dams and dikes.

With our bike tours in Amsterdam and the countryside we aim to reveal to you what remains unknown to others. We simply trust you on finding the Red Light District by yourselves and want to show you what this place really is about.

How do we do it?

Less sometimes is more! Less participants per group means more quality for those joining. That ‘s why we believe in small groups!

Keeping our groups small is super important for the feel and quality of our bike tours. We are Amsterdam ‘s smallest bike tour company and we are proud of that! Groups are never bigger and often smaller then 11 persons per group. This ensures high quality bike tours and a personal, safe and relaxed experience. Please note that our small group policy means there ‘s a limit to our availability as well so we recommend reservations.

Hop on and we bike the extra mile!

During the countryside tour we road on bike paths that took us through quaint villages, farmland and waterside dykes with expansive views. We even visited an authentic windmill. Our guide Thijs was terrific.

A must when travelling to Amsterdam Without a doubt, this tour was one of the highlights of my stay. Thijs and Sumeru were both so helpful and kind, Sumeru (our guide) even brought us to my university campus when he heard I had not visited it yet. It felt so personal and relaxed while also giving such an extensive and comprehensive tour of the city (with a well-earned coffee break in the middle). I knew within 5 minutes of the tour that I would be coming back with my friends/relatives in the future.

The best thing I’ve done in Amsterdam! I booked a private bike tour with We Bike Amsterdam for myself and my three children while on holiday for a few days in Amsterdam. I never expected to like it as much as I did. I thought it was going to be just another bike ride, but instead it was magical. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Amsterdam no matter how many times you’ve been before!

Thijs lead out city tour today. The tour was informative, safe and the bikes were well maintained. We had our 2 year old with us and never felt unsafe and the guide was incredibly helpful. We will be back in the future to do a longer ride.

We did the hidden gems tour and it was brilliant. Very chilled out but very informative. Our guide was Leon and he was absolutely brilliant. He was so knowledgeable but also absolutely hilarious. Really great guy. Highly recommend this tour and this company. They even provide you an email afterwards with recommendations on restaurants and bars.

Fantastic!!!! We did the Hidden Gems of Amsterdam tour and liked it so much that we booked a second Countryside tour a few days later.

A truly delightful bike tour through the canal lined streets of Amsterdam. Thijs was an informative, engaging guide and took us from old historic parts of town, through beautiful parks, past the most visit worthy sights and even added in a stop at a terrific street market. We had a group of 7 that included adults, teenagers and even a 10 year old, all of which said that this was the highlight of their time in Amsterdam. We will definitely book one of their other tours on our next visit and would highly recommend that anyone looking for a great day on bikes in Amsterdam should call We Bike Amsterdam!

Countryside Tour a perfect day out! This tour was perfect. You take a ferry and then are quickly in a beautiful area of fields, dikes, and small villages. Wendelin is an incredible guide, with so much history to tell. He also took exceptional care of this 64-year-old cyclist! Very highly recommended.

We were out of the city in just a few minutes, taking the ferry to Nord Amsterdam. The villages were charming and the countryside beautiful. Our guide was knowledgeable and engaged everyone in the tour. The option of apple pie and coffee was delightful. The bikes were heavy but also well maintained and easy to ride. No issues with them. It was truly a highlight of our many bike tours during our vacation.

“This was a highlight of our week in Amsterdam. We knew we wanted to cycle and took the opportunity to get into the countryside. Wendelin was absolutely fantastic, super knowledgable and the friendliest guy. I felt totally safe (not being the most experiences cyclist in the world) and thoroughly enjoyed the every aspect. And that apple pie… what can I say! Thank you for an awesome morning.”

Biking in Amsterdam is a bucket list adventure! Our guide was spectacular – a grad student who knows the city inside and out. Great stopping points and lots of little details. The bikes are sturdy and reliable. Can’t recommend this enough.

Bikes were well maintained and in good condition. Sinah the group leader was bright, funny and an excellent tour guide who led the tour around the back streets of Amsterdam with grace and elegance. Previous reports speak about the problem of the so many locals on their bikes may cause. I did not find any problem with this or from cars. Well worth the cost.

We had an amazing time! Rose was a wonderful host. We booked a private tour as we had a family of 7 including a 2 year old on board with us. Rose was more than accommodating with us and a lovely lady to deal with. We absolutely loved our time in Amsterdam and this was by far our favorite bike tour throughout our time in Europe!

The countryside bike tour was easily one of the highlights of our trip to Amsterdam! Leon was a fantastic guide, upbeat and highly knowledgeable about the history of the region. I’m still dreaming about that apple pie! Thanks for an awesome experience!

“An outstanding tour that took in lots of interesting locations in Amsterdam that would otherwise be difficult to discover alone. My guide was a history graduate who provided excellent commentary. Especially during pandemic times many other tours cancel at the last minute leaving the participant stranded. l most appreciated that this tour proceeded with only one participant (me). Highly recommended.”
