The stunning warehouses at the Brouwersgracht!
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.
