What you'll do

Ready for a cycle adventure in the Dutch countryside?

On this tour, David takes you on an unforgettable trip to one of the most hidden spots in the region. The tour begins in the old city of Utrecht, where David shares his favourite places and their historical significance. We then follow the river through the natural and historical beauty of the underrated Amelisweerd region. We continue to the 17th-century “Slot zeist” castle where we have a lunch break and time to walk around. The tour culminates with the old Soesterberg air base, where we learn the history of the air base and cycle on the old runway. Lunch, drinks, and bicycle rental included.

If the weather doesn't suit for this day, don't worry! I will be always able to offer my walking tour 'Explore the Hidden Gems of Utrecht'.

As a native Dutchman, I’m happy to have the opportunity to share my knowledge about the beautiful and unique places that make Utrecht. My goal is to avoid the tourist hotspots and let you see Utrecht through the eyes of a local. During the week, I teach high school geography and enjoy history, music, and arts.

Where you'll be

The bike tour starts in the old city centre of Utrecht, where you will get an introduction on the most important highlights of the city. From this point onwards, we will cycle and follow the river and get a glimpse of the Dutch countryside. The next stop is the 17th-century castle 'Slot Zeist' where we will have a lunch break. The airbase is the last stop where we can cycle on the old runway and get a historical background of this unique place!

In all, it was a great experience and good option to get out of the touristy and packed center of Amsterdam. It is very clear that David is knowledgeable and passionate about his city. The trip was an awesome way to spend the day and with a low price to pay.

Highly recommend taking a few hours to take this tour. David was so friendly and kept the tour interesting. We did a lot in just a couple hours and it was truly an experience in the countryside that we would’ve never discovered ourselves. What a great value experience and great guide to hang out with !

Definitely an experience I would recommend. David was a great host to introduce me to cycling in the Netherlands, and as a bonus I got to explore outside the city while hearing about the history of the area. Very good value also, since bike rental, snacks, lunch, and water were all included as well as the generous amount of time. Overall a very chill afternoon and I got to see things I never would have found by myself

David’s cycling tour to the abandoned airbase from Utrecht was by far one of the most genuine and memorable experiences I’ve had in ages! Getting to meet him was a real treat, not only was he knowledgeable and able to easily make conversation, he was also just a super nice guy! I felt safe throughout the cycle tour and I felt he really made an effort to make sure I was getting the most out of it. My favorite parts were getting to go for a quick dip in the calm river as well as getting to experience the vastness of the airbase whilst cruising on the bicycles! Would highly recommend others to join David and get a true glimpse into Dutch culture as well as experience Utrecht and its surrounds in a truest unique and quirky fashion! Thanks Dave!!

We had a great day and I would recommand this to everyone who’s looking for a special tour. Thanks David!
