Everything with plenty of time to explore on our own , to take pictures and a good guide with lots of knowledge
Amazing trip!!
, May 2022
This tour was perfect combination where we got to visit the famous windmills and the beautiful small town of Geithoorn!! This tour involves small group of about 8 people which we liked very much. Usually these tours involves a coach bus with a large group and feels pretty hurried at times. Our guide was well informed in regards to the tour and very accommodating.
Amazing and a fun filled trip
, May 2022
The most memorable part of the tour was Alex, the guide and our skipper. He made the whole tour so fun and knowledgeable. It was a great trip and the highlight of the trip was the boat ride to Giethoorn, it was so beautiful and Alex even allowed us to steer the boat. Would definitely recommend this activity
an excellent tour.

Seeing the villages of Geithoorn and Zaanse Schans. They were unique. Our guide went out of his way to take us through field of blooming tulips.
Windmills and Canals
, May 2022
Zaanse Schans was interesting and nice but Giethoorn was absolutely special. Sharing a beautiful day with my husband and meeting some very lovely people. Also, steering the electric boat through the canals and lake was a lot of fun. Our guide Cherry was super! We don’t often take these sort of tours because you usually feel rushed. However, we want to commend Cherry. The tour did not feel rushed at all. Please keep it that way. Also, always try to reserve the electric boats.
Once in a lifetime experience

If you are looking to visit the beautiful village of Giethoorn, as well as the windmills in Zaanse Schans, this is the perfect tour. Make sure to request Aku with Cherry tours. He was a AWESOME and extremely informative the entire trip. 5 Star service all around. Everything ran like clockwork.

Save your time and money; pick a different tour of Giethoorn and Zaanse Schans
, Sep 2021
Over half of the tour time was riding in a van. The tour guide did not have a good command of the english language, therefore, it was hard to understand her. She did very little narrating. She could have given us information about the people, history, culture, demographics, climate, or anything, but didn't. Once you get to the destination, Giethoorn, it is a lovely area to walk around. However, it was already 1:30pm and we were so hungry, we opted to not go on the canal cruise (which was the main attraction) because it would have been another hour before we had lunch. Really, we were just left to walk around this small area of shops. The Zaanse Schans tour was not well done either. The guide says a few words, then leaves you to to go see the windmill and then walk around the shops by yourself, which is probably okay since I wouldn't want her to follow me around. The only store that she stayed with us was at the diamond store. I'm assuming it was because if anybody did buy a diamond, she would get a commission. I'm not sure what a diamond store was doing on this particular tour. Overall, while the sites were interesting and beautiful, the lack of a competent guide ruined this tour for us.

Hello Alan, We are very sorry and surprised to hear about your experience. The tour is 9 hours and the van ride is 3.5 hours. This tour is popular because getting to Giethoorn by public transport is at least 3 hours one way, driving is only half of the time. We were lucky that day we had only 5 people which was more efficient. I accompanied the group for wooden clogs and cheese factory live demonstrations and I was standing behind the group. Diamond museum is optional, not expecting you to buy any, but to get to know famous Dutch diamond making/cutting technique and design (design with tulips is only available in the Netherlands). Sorry to hear you don't appreciate the art. I am sure the other two people on the same tour (Irish couple) were happy with the tour as they offered tips. It is the first time of my 8 years' career as a tour guide, received a comment like this about my English standard. I run tour for expats developed a travel community. Expats keep coming back to join my tours around Europe, they recommend friends, colleagues and family to join me as well. If my English is not up to standard, I don't see any reason why 'Cherry Tours' is successful running till now. You are right the boat trip is a highlight as it is the only way for a round trip to see the historic centre of Giethoorn. I usually ask the group if they want to take boat trip first or lunch first, or you could have communicated with me that you want to have lunch first. No problem for me. I did offer to run the boat trip again after lunch and they said no need due to the weather a bit windy with drizzle, which is indeed typical Dutch weather. On my tour, I share more information regarding travelling, culture and significant and interesting facts of the Netherlands, not to mention the destinations we travel to. You may read the reviews on TripAdvisor. I am sorry to learn that you did not enjoy the trip as many do. Just wish you could have told me on that day so I could offer the tour the way you wanted. All I wanted was to make your day well spent, this is my goal for each tour with different people around the world. Wish you happy travelling! Best Regards, Cherry

Hello Maria, Thank you for your great review. I didn't even remind you to write a good review for us. It was such a wonderful time with your lovely family especially driving the electric boat cruising around Giethoorn. Thank you for being the captains. Maybe we will welcome you back on Spring time again! Happy travels! Regards, Cherry

Totally worth the money!
, Jul 2021
This trip was well worth the money. I highly recommend this trip and this company. Cheery is an excellent guide. She was very informative and gave us plenty of time to browse and took our pictures. Our group was very just 4 of us and because there were less tourists than usual, it was beautiful and peaceful! Our driver was also awesome.
