Leuke en afwisselende fietstocht gemaakt door het prachtige Waterland, mooie historische dorpjes en over eeuwenoude dijken. We werden begeleid door de gezellige en spontane gids Titia. Ze gaf informatie over de historie van deze streek. Onderweg gestopt voor een lekker hapje en drankje.
Het letterlijk hoogtepunt was de beklimming van kerktoren van Ransdorp, via een smalle wenteltrap omhoog tot 32 meter hoogte. Het uitzicht over het weidse landschap van Waterland en het Markermeer was geweldig. Een echte aanrader!

As a former inhabitant of Waterland I knew of course that this bike tour leads through a beautiful environment with nature and culture. But through the background stories of Titia during this varied bike ride, I went with new eyes through the landscapes and villages that I know. Very surprising and certainly an added value of this bike tour. But also very suitable for a first acquaintance with this area so close to Amsterdam.

Beautiful trip through Waterland. An area completely unknown to me, but now I see how beautiful it is above Amsterdam. The Ilperveld was a revelation for me, so quiet, beautiful nature and just above Amsterdam. Our guide Titia really took the time to inform us of where we were and what the background of the area was. In one word a recommendation for everyone.
