Full description
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 of the afternoon being driven back to Amsterdam.

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.

Way overpriced! The directions as to where the driver was picking us up were confusing. However, our driver was nice and friendly. Our group all spoke English and they booked us on a boat ride where the guide only spoke Dutch so none of us understood anything.
