Coffeeshop Bike Tour

Watch out folks! Bikes, trams, buses and cars come from everywhere! This is Amsterdam, and you need to keep your wits about you at all times. Amsterdam is renowned all over the world for its relaxed approach to coffeeshops, allowing visitors and residents to smoke cannabis freely. The Netherlands has approximately 17 million residents and around 18 million bikes. We are proud to offer you our Coffeeshop Bike Tour.

Amsterdam is one of the most bike-friendly cities in the world, but we strongly recommend you to come with us. Biking through busy streets and weed do not mix in a crowded city. Therefore, why not let us help you safely navigate through the hectic streets with a local guide who knows how and where to bike, always  ensuring your security.

We know all the little spots off the beaten tracks, the hidden gems that will supply you with the best weed for less euros. Most tourists only see the coffeeshops downtown, but with about 170 coffeeshops in Amsterdam (formerly 400 in total) we have sniffed out high-quality coffeeshops with more competitive prices than the ones you’ll find downtown.

We kick off our 3 – 4 hour (weather permitting)   bike tour with a look at the history of the coffeeshops in Amsterdam. It all started in the East, and that’s where we commence our Coffeshop Bike Tour!

– 10.00 am & 14.00 daily

– 3 to 4 hours duration PRIVATE tour

  – €37.50 per person

– Excluding bike rent (€ 12,50,- per bike)
