Small-Group Day Tour to Giethoorn from Amsterdam
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Restaurant De Rietstulp, Dominee T.O. Hylkemaweg 15, 8355 CE Giethoorn, Netherlands
Meet your guide/driver at our central meeting point just across from Central Station Amsterdam. A comfortable, air-conditioned luxurious minivan will take you to today’s 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 where you drive through today was a sea until the 1950-ties.
Giethoorn is definitely one of the most picturesque villages of the Netherlands. The town has been one of the most popular tourist villages of the country and is nick named the Dutch Venice. Just like Venice, Giethoorn has many canals and the only way to get around town is by boat or walking. No cars are allowed in the old town, whose history dates back to the middle ages.
After a short walking tour of the village you have time at leisure 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.
Late afternoon we drive back to Amsterdam.

Giethoorn was amazing village, not as much as you can see coz its quite small. but the house and the view is worth to take this tour. Our guide is very friendly and he always make sure we are enjoying this tour.
Completely disappointing to say the least, worst birthday day ever, it was depressing. Giethoorn is beautiful, but the tour itself was not worth the money or time. Try going to Giethoorn on your own. I am giving it two stars for the beauty of Giethoorn, the people and the food that was delicious.
Giethoorn is an excellent place worth visit. Unfortunately, the driver was very unprofessional, keep trying to persuade us to go somewhere he recommend instead of Batavia Stad Fashion Outlet as scheduled even we refused. Then he drove pass the outlet and claimed that he missed the exit and trying to take us somewhere else. Other 2 girls in the same group insisted to go as original plan, so, we lost an hour in traffic. Then the 2 girls just turn up almost an hour late for departure without noticing. The whole group have to wait .......however, I do not blame them as I should have do the same.
