WW2 Amsterdam Cycle Tour
Dear history buffs,
We will start our private WW2 Amsterdam bicycle tour in April.
South and east of the city centre, Amsterdam has many WW2 monuments, and buildings, including the headquarters of the Gestapo (the German Secret Police) and the headquarters of the Dutch Nazi Party. We will also visit places where executions, raids, and fights between the Dutch resistance and German soldiers took place. The cycle tour will not visit places that the WW2 walking tour visits.
Because of the busy traffic in Amsterdam during the week, we will offer the tour only on Saturday morning and Sunday morning, with a maximum of 4 people per tour. However, if all of the participants on a tour are highly experienced cyclists, we can do the tour on a weekday after the traffic peaks in the morning.
We have neither an office nor bicycle storage (we are retired historians; we have only book cases), so you cannot rent a bike from us. But almost all of the hotels in Amsterdam have bikes for rent and on almost every corner there is a bike rental company.
We will pick you up at your hotel and bring you back to your hotel after the tour, which will take between 2,5 and 3 hours. About halfway through the tour, a short break will be provided for a coffee and/or a rest room visit. Because of its content, the suggested minimum age for the tour is 13.
The price is 150 euros for a private tour for 1 to 4 people.
