What To Expect

Visit the tiny village of Giethoorn, aptly named “the Little Venice of the Netherlands” on this picturesque full day tour. Famous for its incredibly tranquil atmosphere, the village, located on the border with Germany, offers the ultimate getaway from the noise of the city. Here you will find no roads and no cars — just picturesque antique farmhouses, parks and beautiful canals. Roam the the fantastical setting of the countryside and find yourself at the Enclosing Dike, a 32km long dike connecting North Holland and Friesland. Capture the moment and enjoy the serene ambiance unlike any other. The primary method of moving around the village is by taking a boat: hop on one and two are the canals of Giethoorn for a full tour of the village. Have some free time to explore: hunt for souvenirs, take plenty of photos and dine at one of the many village restaurant with stunning views of the canal.

  • Hoi Lam Phoebe 9 Oct 2018
    Glad to join this day tour to save the time in finding ways to travel to Giethoorn, also to learn brief history of Netherlands as shared by the tour guide on the way. There’s ample time to tour around Giethoorn on own for taking as many pictures as you want :) Just to be sure to arrive at the meeting point 30 minutes before to redeem the ticket.
  • Sin Tung 28 Sep 2018
    Nice place and nice tour! Giethoorn is worth to visit and have a boat trip there. Just meet at the central station and convenient that we take the bus there. Recommended!
  • Bee Bee 24 Jul 2018
    Giethoorn scenery nice! But not much explanation from tour guide. Suggest take own tour instead.
  • man yi 20 Jul 2018
    It’s a wonderful trip. Although need to take almost 1.5 hr coach to go there it’s really valuable and unforgettable!
  • Damian 14 Jul 2018
    Giethoorn is so beautiful and there are many nice restaurants to choose from for lunch. Tour well organised and tour guide really great.
  • susanty 12 Jul 2018
    Great experience, worth it. Our guide , I think his name is bennedick , is a great guy.
  • Yat Woon 6 Jul 2018
    I’d say it’s worth the time to visit this little village. Thanks to others who commented about arriving at least 30 mins earlier, the guide started to gather people at 9.05 even though the start time is 9.30. The guide didn’t do much as we were left to roam around on our own. I’d also recommend renting a self drive boat for a 2 hour tour around the island.
  • Pui Lam 3 Jul 2018
    very decent trip nice view nice tour guide but the departure time is more than 35 - 40 minutes earlier than actual scheduled departure time, which may make people cannot catch up
  • Hiu Lee 25 Jun 2018
