  • Giethoorn is an amazing place to visit well worth the time. The tour made it very easy. I would have preferred more time on the canals rather than the local waterway.

  • Nathan was incredible and so informative! I noted my father was very slow in his old age and he tailored the entire tour around our needs. Highly recommend!

  • Giethoorn is very beautiful. The canal ride was a lot of fun. I only gave it a 4 out of 5 because it is a LONG drive to get there. We also did the Windmills, Volendam, and Marken trip. That one was cheaper, but felt more active. We got to do more things in shorter amount of time.

  • A wonderful day trip to Volendam and Giethoorn. Our tour guide was friendly, informative and knowledgeable. The bus was comfortable and our driver was very nice.

  • Best tour guide that I had met so far from the same company, unfortunately I had forgotten her name. I enjoy the fact that the tour guide was very informative and the personal stories that she shares of her childhood makes the experience more personal. Nice place to visit despite the rainy weather.

  • The driver was very professional. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and outgoing. We had our own time to explore and enjoy lunch in Gienthoorn.
