Giethoorn Day Tour From Amsterdam by Bus and Boat

5 / 5 total 29 reviews
Duration: 9 hours
Product code: 1667
Overview

Depart Amsterdam at 10:30 and travel to the enchanting village of Giethoorn in the north of the Netherlands for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Known as the "Venice of the Netherlands," the village is notable for its many canals and complete lack of main roads.

Return to Amsterdam centre around 19:30. Upon arrival, explore the fairy-tale like a village, where only 2,600 people live, on a 1-hour guided boat tour in English.

Experience the idyllic scenery from a unique perspective on a leisurely trip through the canals. Watch people punt the traditional flat-bottom boats over the canals as you go.

Although most transport in the village is by water, there is also now a cycling path. The 9-hour day tour allows you sufficient time for own activities at extra costs renting and steering your private ''whisper boat'', cycling along the paths or enjoying local cuisine.

Explore the beautifully-preserved village by bike or on foot, and see how each farmhouse is built on a small man-made island. Wander the narrow footpaths to discover more than 180 bridges, and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and unique lifestyle of the village.

Highlights
  • Full day trip allows sufficient time to enjoy the romantic atmosphere and snail-paced lifestyle.
  • Travel in groups along the canals of Giethoorn on an English-guided boat trip.
  • Live and friendly guide and driver with a personal touch.

    The tour had only 10 people travelling to Giethorn and joined a good boat-tour. The guide has knowledge about the area and can recommend what to do at Giethorn.

    The trip is so worthwhile. Such a glorious village and very unusual with the thatched roofs and picturesque scenery on the canals. Relaxing time on and off the water. Locals are very friendly and interested in the tourists. Locals take such pride in the village everything well kept especially homes and gardens.
