Overview
In this 9-hour tour, you enjoy a personal service by our friendly and professional guide, travelling in small group from a few people to 25 max. You will discover Giethoorn, one of the most romantic Dutch villages named 'Venice of The Netherlands'. Admire the flowers, trees, birds, cute little wooden bridges, boats and for sure canals. The village has no main roads, so you will enjoy a boat trip cruising around the village with your local tour guide from Giethoorn, who will tell you everything about this village: its history, and how people live there. Giethoorn is your destination whether you’re a couple looking for a romantic day or a weekend, a family with kids who are in love with nature, or a single traveler that wants to visit a unique place.

What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Amsterdam and board your vehicle, which sets off to explore the quaint village of Giethoorn. On arrival, park on the village outskirts and walk into the entirely car-free city center. Stroll the streets, paths, and trails with your guide, noting the houses’ thatched-roofs and well-kept lawns. A walk to the canal banks reveals punters as they sail by. Next, board a boat and cruise through the waterways, passing farmhouses, gardens, and wooden bridges, while gaining insight into the history of Giethoorn. After the boat tour, choose to have lunch organized by your guide (own expense), or disembark for some independent exploration. Peruse the local shops, explore more walkways, and immerse yourself in the village’s ambiance. At the end of your visit, relax on the drive back. Your tour concludes at the original departure point.
