Explore lesser-known parts of Amsterdam!


Local Experts Amsterdam has been organizing walking, cycling and sailing excursions for over 15 years for many types of visitors at a high quality level with the aim of sharing the best of Amsterdam with our guests.

For those who want to see more of Amsterdam we organize off-track bike tours. Discover how colourful and divers Amsterdam is during our 'Amsterdam Off-track' cycle tour. Amsterdam's waterfronts are also booming with new lively city districts and cultural hotspots and our Waterland cycling tour takes you past colourful wooden houses, beautiful villages and green meadows.

Cycling outside the city center means we cycle a lot and of course also see a lot. However if you don't like cycling or don't feel comfortable on a bike you might prefer a walking excursion. The Western Islands for example is one of Amsterdam’s most beautiful and somewhat hidden neighbourhoods. Perfect for a walk!

Local Experts organizes guided tours for private groups. The rates vary and depend on the type of program and on walking, cycling or sailing. Bike rental via Local Experts is not compulsory, you can bring or hire your own bikes. Would you like to know more? We will be happy to inform you!

Example program: Cycle tour 'Amsterdam Off-track'



Would you like to see some lesser known areas of Amsterdam, away from the famous but busy canals and touristic hotspots? Our cycle excursion 'Amsterdam off-track' may just be what you are looking for!

We will take you for example to the east of Amsterdam to a windmill with right next to it an Amsterdam beer brewery. We'll cycle to more green areas of the city with gardens and 19th century houses and Amsterdam’s zoo 'Artis'. Or we go to the west of Amsterdam and see rows of beautifully restored canalhouses, charming wooden bridges, former shipyards, houseboats and much more.

These beautiful, lesser known parts of Amsterdam are located with some distance between them. If you are in for a bit of cycling you'll see a lot during the 'Amsterdam off-track tour'. In consultation with your experienced guide you can choose the areas you really would like to see or just go with the flow and let the Amsterdam off-track tour surprise you!

After about 2.5 hours we end near CS Amsterdam or if you have brought your own (rental) bikes at a location in consultation.
