My wife and I were fortunate that only the two of us had booked the tour for our day, which happened to be gorgeous and sunny.

This is a long awaited review clearly a year late. About a year a go, my partner and I were able to have a tour with Mieke all to ourselves and it was such a delight. We took this recommendation from the Rick Steve's guide book. Biking through Brugge and neighboring town, Damme, is fairly easy and not at all... More

Me and my sister have just returned from a 3 day stay in Bruges. We did the pink bear bike ride on our second day and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was an easy ride suitable for both the young and old, and those like myself who aren't particularly fit.We were taken to beautiful locations. Was lovely to learn about the... More

My wife and I recently spent two days in Bruges, and I contacted Mieke on the recommendation of the Rick Steves book on Bruges. I was lucky enough to have her as my own private guide for a thoroughly delightful bike tour of Bruges and the nearby town of Damme. The riding is extremely easy, and incredibly picturesque. If you... More

We wanted to cycle around and out of the city with our daughter. This was a great option. Our guide was friendly, interesting to talk to and I loved the cycling. It is very easy going and you get to see a bit of the beautiful surrounding countryside.....with a stop for waffles along the way!

We had a great experience cycling with Mieke who was a fun tour guide and was very informative at the same time. It was good to see a different aspect of Brugges. Would highly recommend it......

My wife, 8 year old daughter and I had Mieke all to ourselves for our excursion. We had a chilly, foggy ride out of Bruges towards Damme with patches of fog hovering over the canal and fields. The ride was easy paced and my daughter kept up easily and unlike our hometown of Plymouth the whole ride was flat and... More

We really enjoyed our cycle ride out of the city. It was great to get away from the crowds for a nice cycle. We weren't 'cyclists' or members of the 'lycra brigade' and we were fitted with bikes for us, and had a really great day.
