What people are saying about Enkhuizen
Never knew Leeuwarden had such a rich history! Jelle Nauta was our enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide from Leeuwarden. He took us up the Oldehove tower, past beautiful buildings from the golden age and shared the stories dating back to the roots of Dutch Royalty. His calm demeanor and passion for Frysian culture was a pleasure. One note for the agency: ensure the right pricing and direct connection with GetYourGuide (rather than through another agency) because a private walking tour of 2 hours should not cost €250. It should be affordable for more people to enjoy.
Excellent tour, the place is incredibly beautiful, the attention and dedication of the guide, Ivette is simply excellent, as well as Tom the bus driver. Very well explained, not only do you enjoy but you learn a lot. Highly recommended and congratulations to the tour collaborators.
Good tour, perhaps you could cut short the trip by an hour or even more after the boat trip in geithoorn. Otherwise very good.
The Giethoorn tour, passing through the closing dock, is highly recommended! The town is fairy tale! Worth knowing.
We really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide was excellent. Very happy with this experience.
