From Amsterdam: Giethoorn Day Trip and One Attraction

1. From Amsterdam: Giethoorn Day Trip and One Attraction

Take a day trip from Amsterdam to discover the traditional town of Giethoorn. Meet your guide/driver in central Amsterdam and board a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. Relax during the 1.5-hour journey as you admire the typical Dutch landscape of polders — land that has been reclaimed from the sea. Arrive in Giethoorn, nicknamed the Dutch Venice, and explore the beautiful town with a short walking tour and a canal cruise. Afterwards, enjoy some free time to discover the village on your own. Your driver/guide will give you insider tips about great local restaurants, shops, attractions, activities and more. Stop to enjoy a coffee and a piece of apple pie before heading back to Amsterdam to finish your day with your choice of two attractions. Select either a 5D VR flight experience over the Dutch countryside or a relaxing canal cruise to see the city’s most famous attractions from the water. With the 5D flight, breathtaking film and special effects will take you soaring over the must-see sites of the Netherlands as you learn about the country’s history. On the cruise you’ll pass all of Amsterdam’s top sights, admire canal houses from the Golden Age, and see the Westerkerk and Anne Frank’s House.

Amsterdam: Giethoorn & Zaanse Schans Guided Combo Tour

2. Amsterdam: Giethoorn & Zaanse Schans Guided Combo Tour

For a one-time life experience, you can start with a tour of the enchanting village of Giethoorn in the north of the Netherlands, with many canals and a total lack of roads. During a 1-hour guided boat tour, you can visit this fairytale village where less than 3,000 persons are living. Explore the restored village on foot to see the structure of every farmhouse on a tiny, man-made island. Walk along the narrow footpaths to explore hundreds of bridges and admire the village's quiet ambiance. Your journey will continue with an exploration of the most picturesque traditional 17th-century Zaanse Schans settlement, which includes houses and a series of wonderfully restored windmills from the nation's industrial heritage. In Zaanse Schans village, you can stroll through the charming greenhouses and visit a factory that makes the famous clogs in this part of the world. There's also a Dutch cheese to taste, and when you're there, you can try some at the Catharina Hoeve Farm, where you can also learn about how it's made.

What people are saying about Giethoorn

It was a great experience. Our driver was very friendly and everything was well planned. I also liked that he easily adjusted the trip so we should not wait but better enjoy the views. I also liked that Giethorn was left at the end as we liked it the most. It is like in fairytales.

Great tour! Included a variety of sights and an easy way to see a lot of things in one day. Do wish we would have spent just a bit more time in Volendam since the majority of the time time was taken up with lunch, but otherwise it was perfect. Would definitely recommend

A superb experience! Lots to see, but free time to make the most of it. Our driver Abdel was very nice!

Noval is amazing! Best guide ever! And Tony is the most amazing driver. What a great experience.

Wonderful &memorable trip - Naufal was great and our group couldn't be better.
