You get to drive through the breathtaking countryside. Giethoorn looks like a fairy tale town. Way beautiful. Highly recommended.

Picturesque village not to miss

This is a fantastic tour. After the pickup in a van, we drove about 15 minutes to the coach bus. Then with our guide, we drove about two hours to Giethoorn. We had lunch on our own and walked around the picturesque village. We then boarded a sightseeing boat and had a guided tour by the Captain. Beautiful homes and gardens. Really interesting how you can only get there via walking, bicycle, or boat. Afterwards we had an hour or so on our own and then returned back to Amsterdam. Perfectly arranged and we were lucky to have stunning sunny and warm weather. I highly recommend this tour. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable about the area and village.

Very crowded and at times uncomfortable. But the views were good. Too many people crowded onto the boat.

Extraordinary day with fantastic tour guide who went above and beyond!

Saeed was a fantastic tour guide. We were a small group of 6 supposed to meet up with 40 others, instead we got a private tour. On the way, Saeed took us through a small village (not listed on tour) - it was a lovely little village. In Geithoorn, we had a wonderful tour, plenty of time for photos. It was a beautiful day in a beautiful village on the canals. On our way home, we may another extra stop at a fruit/vegetable market. Knowing I was allergic to fruit, Saeed went the extra mile to take us to this farm where they made one variety of hypo-allergenic apples! The other fruit that we all bought was delicious! Extraordinary day! Thank you, Saeed!!

This place is very scenic and peaceful. There are many restaurants and cafes. A good place for pictures too. The tour guide Ibrahim and his co guide Michael is very nice and friendly. I lost my ipad in the toilet and our team member passit to Ibrahim and he kept it for me. Thanks to them.

Giethoorn is a must for anyone visiting the Netherlands. My wife wants to retire there now after touring it. Ibrahim was a great tour guide and we learned so much about the Netherlands from him. It was great to do the boat tour first before doing the walking tour because the boat tour gives you a great orientation.

The tour guides were very nice. The tour guide on a ride to the location didn’t really have much to say about the things we’ve passed on our way there. Guide at the location was very nice and didn’t know about the area. It’s just that there was not too much to see. A bit slow but kind of relaxing.

The visit to Giethoorn was lovely. The day was beautiful and the town and its people were kind and welcoming. Our guides did a good job discussing the history of The Netherlands, and were helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. All in all a nice day.

Would not recommend.

Did not find this tour memorable nor worth the $100 pp fee. Mimi an driver provided very limited information nor prepared remarks about history and culture of what we were seeing. Plus we were seated in the back and without a microphone we had trouble hearing him. Canal trip was pleasant with interesting sights. Totally a super tourist driven excursion with limited value.

Beautiful village - very peaceful and extremely pretty. The journey was much longer than I had expected - it would have been useful to have known this beforehand. It took over 90 minutes to drive to the destination.

Saeed our guide was the best tour guide I have had so far. He planned everything very well. He was funny, friendly and very knowledgeable. I have learned a lot about the Netherlands history and He explained every single detail on the way. He was caring about every single one of us on the tour, making conversations with everyone and making sure everyone is doing fine. I absolutely recommend him. You would have an unforgettable day.

Not worth it.

Long ride in a van to a very crowded tourist site. When we arrived there wasn't a boat for us. Seemed poorly planned. The guide did not tell us much. On the boat, we were guided by a very young man who also didn't tell us much. Had some canned comments. The canals were jammed with boats. Restaurants overpriced and crowded. I'm not sure what the $200 euros got us.

Guide was incredibly friendly and charming. Lots of interesting information on the way to Giethoorn and he kept things moving along. Giethoorn was lovely - a must see if you want to get out of Amsterdam for a few hours.

It was nice. Could've spent even more time. But it was lovely. In summer boat renting visitors will make it unenjoyable. Go in Spring or Fall.
