  • Small Group Full Day Trip to Giethoorn

    1. Small Group Full Day Trip to Giethoorn

    Meet your guide/driver before heading in a comfortable, air-conditioned luxurious minivan to your first destination in about 90 minutes. The journey takes you goes through the typical flat Dutch ‘polder’ landscape. Polder is land that has been reclaimed from the sea, and most of the land you drive through today was a sea until the 1950s. Giethoorn is definitely one of the most picturesque villages in the Netherlands. The town has been one of the country's most popular tourist villages and is nicknamed the Dutch Venice. Just like Venice, Giethoorn has many canals and the only way to get around town is by boat or walking.  After a short walking tour of the village, you will have leisure time to discover the village on your own. Your driver/guide will reveal the city’s unique character, and give you insider’s tips about great local restaurants, shops, attractions, activities and more. End...

    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.

Fantastic tour

We booked the tour as this was our second visit to the Netherlands and we wanted to see the countryside . Our guide made it an amazing experience - the kids call him Uncle Bramsterdam and he’s a rock star through and through . He regaled us with personal stories , anecdotes and history of the area. We learned so much about how they reclaimed the land and enjoyed a leisurely stroll in Geithoorn. Such a idyllic beautiful village , we are glad we went early and missed the crowds.

Excellent!!

We took the tour my family and I and we recommend it 100%. Our guide was super friendly, very attentive and took us to know more places that were left over the way. I recommend you take this tour, you will not regret it.

Giethoorn is a fairytale place. Loved it. Theo was our guide. He was informative, entertaining and flexible. Would happily recommend this day out from Amsterdam to others.
