Warning - look EVERYWHERE while in Amsterdam. Beware people and trams and cars and sidewalk barriers/poles and most especially bicycles!
Yes Amsterdam is a bit chaotic, which is why I was so glad to see another side of Amsterdam by taking this country bike tour. Even though it's slightly nerve racking (as I haven't been on a bike in 20 years) this tour is worth it. Plus it's fun to act like a local and get out of city center for at least a little while.
