We're a family of 3 and our boy was 7 and half when we did the the tour at the end of September. Our lad was delighted as Pink Bear had a bike which fitted him perfectly. Adults had real bikes with gears not the tour bikes you usually see and these were mainly Treks including the one my son... More

This is a lovely change of pace, met our guide under the belfry and as luck would have it we were the only 2 that were on it that day. Short stroll to collect the bikes and the 3 of us were off. The tour goes to Damme after initially getting out of the built up area, the guide takes... More

We enjoyed the ride up to Damme on the most beautiful day in September with Mika (sorry I cannot recall how to spell her name). The ride was flat which allowed us to really take in the scenery and enjoy every minute. You start with a quick ride in the city that makes way to the lovely countryside, including a... More

My partner and I had Mieke to ourselves on our bike ride to Damme. She was very sweet and informative. Despite how lovely Bruges is, it was excellent to explore a little way out and Damme (and the way to Damme) was incredibly picturesque. Highly recommend.

We had a great time. Mieke was a very informative and funny guide. She told us a lot about the history of the city and the visit to nearby Damme was a highlight. Very laid back and easy tour. Don't be hesitant if you are not a strong cyclist, Mieke was really attentive and went at a very leisurely pace.... More

Everything was great. The guide (Mieke) took her time to make sure our bikes fit - there were a variety of bikes to use. Just a few minutes of getting out of Bruges and we were in the lovely countryside on our way to Damme. Mieke was knowledgeable and an excellent guide. There were just four customers in our group,...

I scheduled with Mieke about a week in advance of my arrival to Bruges. She confirmed that depending on the weather we were a go. She confirmed via email again the day before -- and reminded to meet at the bottom of the bell tower. I went on a tour with another couple who had bikes -- she had a... More

I want to start this review off with a little reminder that-- I like to believe that traveling the world and getting to know the people in the places we go to is a very significant and valuable thing. We were lucky enough to meet Mieke and take the tour during our visit to Brugge. We visited in late April... More

I only called about half an hour before the tour but Mieke was there at 10.30 to take us on a very enjoyable and scenic ride along the Canal to Damme. Nothing much going on in Damme the day we did it but there are markets some days. Mieke was knowledgeable about the area and took us around Bruges on... More
