  • Giethoorn & the New Polders: Small Group Tour from Amsterdam

    1. Giethoorn & the New Polders: Small Group Tour from Amsterdam

    Take a day trip in a small group, from Amsterdam to visit polders, the Ijsselmeer, and a village known as the Venice of the North. Your day begins with a 1-hour drive to Enk¬huizen, a quaint 17th century port town on the shores of the former Zuiderzee, now known as the IJsselmeer. Take a short stroll in Enkhuizen to get an impression of the old town before crossing the IJssel¬meer on a 20-kilometer-long dike. You’ll continue on through the reclaimed land, known as polders, passing the new town of Lelystad, the capital of Flevoland. The highlight of the full-day tour is a visit to the village of Giethoorn. It is known as the Venice of the North as canals serve as the streets of the village, and access is by boat only. You’ll enjoy a 1-hour boat ride through this lovely village, admiring the beautifully restored farm houses along the canals. There will also be some time to wander around...

    It was a great tour for us and we enjoy it. We learnt a lot about the history and culture, ... from our kind tour leader. She was great. The only negative point was the ftee time in Giethoorn that was 1:15. For a amazing place like there this time wasn't enough and I prefer to cancel other visiting on the way and just focus on this beautiful village

    There were only 4 of us in the group & we all agreed it was one of the best day tours we have had. Our guide Bram was pleasant & knowledgeable & professional.

What people are saying about Giethoorn

We had a great time!! The driver/tour guide made it extra special. One of the best tours I've ever been... Every stop was beautiful and we had enough time to go around and see everything with no rush. Our guide educated us a bit about the country, history & fun facts. He also talked about the villages we stopped and even places we drove-by. HIGHLY recommended...

I love it.It was very good time for me here.My guide Mosas he is proficient. He gave us a lot of knowledge about Amstredam which is i never heard before.We are on time.All the point view was so beautiful.

All very nice, the only inconvenience was a bus accident on the way back. He forced us to independently return to the hotel. But GetYourGuide refunded us part of the ticket price.

Amazing place and very informative guide, highly recommended!
