You will also have plenty of time to explore the fascinating and unique city of Amsterdam.
The daily rides are led by a knowledgeable guide who is a font of knowledge on local customs, traditions and history and he/she will be happy to impart his/her knowledge during the daily rides. You’ll be cycling along dedicated cycle paths and quiet lanes. The routes are very easy with no hills so anyone with a basic level of fitness can enjoy this tour.
The emphasis is firmly on enjoying the scenery and springtime colours, so if you don’t fancy riding one day, simply stay on board and enjoy a relaxing cruise to the next port of call.
