I believe that making tourists feel at home and making them smile is important. As an official tour guide who is born and bred in Amsterdam, I offer my customers a wealth of information on history, art, architecture, and social life. People experience my tours as personal, specialized, fun, and state to have a new friend at the end of the day.

Description

I’ll meet you at the bike rental shop, your hotel or any other prearranged place in Amsterdam. We’ll get going as soon as you’ve rented a bike. We’ll cover quite a bit of ground on this tour, however along the way there'll be several opportunities to either go the distance or head back to Amsterdam depending on your energy levels.

Just outside Amsterdam, a completely different world unfolds. Flat countryside, ditches and gullies. Cows, sheep and horses. Typical North Holland farms, cute villages (Broek in Waterland for instance) and polder landscapes with dykes and sluices...

Throughout the tour I’ll explain all there is to know about reclaiming land, polders, polder politics, water boards, dykes and dams. I’ll also tell you why it began in the first place and why it wasn’t the government who paid for this enormous engineering marvel.

Halfway along we'll stop for a pancake lunch at one of the most picturesque places in Holland.

Fantastic tour/tour guide
I really enjoyed my time with Rolf. He was very accommodating and great company. And the physical activity of the tour itself and being "off the beaten path" was great. After working up a serious appetite during the morning ride, pancakes never tasted so good at our lunch stop! Rolf also offered a coffee and/or beer stop (neither of which I drink) so we just kept riding by my choice. I highly recommend Rolf and this tour.
Great family outing exploring The Netherlands!
My husband and I, along with our two young adult daughters had a fabulous day touring the Dutch countryside by bike with Rolf. It was great to explore more of Amsterdam, but especially to visit some of the beautiful and historic villages outside the city. Rolf met us at our hotel at 10:00 am and we had a marvelous ride that wasn't too strenuous (The Netherlands is basically flat). We enjoyed a delicious lunch at a restaurant specializing in Dutch pancakes, and we ended the day back in Amsterdam at a brewery located in one of the few surviving windmills. It was a very fun and interesting day!
Nothing better than a bicycle ride with a friend through the countryside!!
Just a five minute bike ride out of town and we were in the most beautiful countryside. A flat ride made it easy but the conversation and laughs with Rolf was the highlight of our 3 week journey to Europe. We would certainly book this tour again or any tour that Rolf offered! His knowledge of the area and personal insights made the trip fun.
