Giethoorn Day Trip

At the arranged time the tour leaves the centre of Amsterdam, travelling northwards for an hour and a half across Holland. There we arrive at the picturesque town of Giethoorn: a municipality which finds on its border the Weerribben-Wieden National Park, one of Holland's most beautiful natural spaces.

Having arrived at the outskirts of the town, the tour leaves the bus to enjoy a trip by boat through the canals of Giethoorn. This means of transport is the only way to access the centre of the town, and during the crossing you will have the opportunity to contemplate typical Dutch houses and the wooden bridges which allow you to cross from one canal bank to the other. 

The tour will also teach you about the history of Giethoorn, where the absence of motor vehicles is what gives this beautiful town its nickname: "The Dutch Venice." Having concluded the boat trip, you will have time to have lunch in the town, a perfect opportunity to discover the gastronomy of the Netherlands. 

Having eaten, the tour returns to the bus to return to Amsterdam.
