Amsterdam: Cycling through the Dutch countryside like a local

The Netherlands is known for being the perfect country to go for a bike ride. First a 15 minute ferry ride takes you out of the hectic city, then start your biking tour into the beautiful and green nature reserve called "Waterland". Your local guide will take you through centuries old picturesque villages with typical wooden houses, past countless brooks and waterways, across old wooden bridges, along the Ijsselmeer through green pastures. Designated bicycle paths connect the entire region. On a nice spring or summer day, the green fields are full of flowers, sheep and cows are in the meadows. It is a peaceful tour with a photo stop at a Dutch windmill. Comfortable bicycles, helmets and refreshment in a typical Dutch Inn are provided and of course all these experiences under guidance of a local guide. A different way to experience Holland.

Bernkastel: Biking along the Moselle

Imagine riding for an afternoon past vineyards stretching up steep mountainsides on both banks of this slow-moving river. Picture yourself pedaling through sun-drenched medieval-looking towns of half-timbered houses and past Romanesque churches of intricate architecture. Glance up from your handlebars to see a castle perched high overhead and, as you turn the corner, listen to cheery townspeople and tourists enjoying themselves at outdoor tables around a fountain in the town square. A bike tour is a great way to experience this historic region. The bikes will be delivered to the ship and your local guide will show you all the hidden gems along the Moselle River.
