Private guided bike tours in Amsterdam and in North Holland | By your local tour leader | FR, EN, DU & NL

This hidden gem on the river IJ in Amsterdam had gone after 3 days….;)

Private bike guide Amsterdam: for groups and individuals (and VIP’s) looking for the unknown.

The customers of private cycle tour guide Lex are interested in local culture. Meaning diving into the unknown part of the city.
They do like to be organised and want to see as much as possible in their short amount of time.
Active people longing for hidden gems to check, and enthusiastic eaters at the same time.

Generally, quite low maintenance as a group.
Anything that’s not on hop on/off tours they are interested in too – so off the beaten track cycle Amsterdam experiences, want to soak up the culture of a place and if there are any must do’s.

Biking privately with your group (or with you) in Amsterdam: what Lex and the City is about.

The Lex and the City private guided bike-tours Amsterdam combine the discovery of hip & emerging parts of Amsterdam (the hidden gems) with getting to know even better the people around you.
In 4 languages: French, English, German or mother tongue Dutch.

Biking on Java eiland with your group is cool. Go discover hidden gems in the capital of the Netherlands.

The private guided tour can be either private or work related.
It can be in town or around town; in the countryside above Amsterdam. Think about biking to Zaanse Schans from AMS or take the bike in the train for a day trip to the flowers and bulb fields above Alkmaar and then go to Texel island by train. (Bike inside obviously, or renting a bike locally.)

Every Amsterdam bike tour has its own theme.
Sometimes we add an item to the tour, like a restaurant or picknick, a language exchange, a tasting or dancing afterwards. 

In order to ride our bikes comfortable and safe, the maximum number of participants is 12 people in town and 15 in the countryside.
The pace is relaxed. (relexed?)

This hidden gem tour will take place in the eastern part of the city, on the so-called Amsterdam’ Docklands: the ancient harbor which has been transformed into a great place to live and be.

Lex is not just a local tour guide. He also loves creating, rehearsing and doing bike-tracks outside of Amsterdam. Privately as well.
He also records the bike tracks. Including pictures; he always makes pictures, everywhere he goes.
And is even rewarded by an American GPS website for the so-called GEO-tracking. (tracks + pictures.)

Because of his history as an international inline skate guide, he has an extensive knowledge of tracks in the Countryside, mostly above Amsterdam.
Think about:

(And two private guided bike tours in the countryside, however not above Amsterdam)

  • Zandvoort bike & skate track for groups: great route starting from Amsterdam over Spaarnwoude, Haarlem, the dunes, Bloemendaal to Zandvoort beach.
  • Ouderkerk: along river Amstel checking out the houses (and castles) of the rich & famous in the Golden age and now.

Discover Lex’ drive, his mission as a person and as an entrepreneur (creator of new tours) and freelancer (helping out group clients of DMC’s and international tour operators.)
