Disembark and enjoy free time to further explore Giethoorn’s trails and paths, or ask your guide for recommendations for lunch (own expense).

Regroup for a visit to IJsselmeer (seasonal) to see the enclosing dam Afsluitdijk, admire the body of water and and learn more about the feat of engineering.

Your tour concludes at the departure point. When the tour ends, receive a complimentary canal cruise ticket to be used in Amsterdam during your stay.

Very scenic and unique place

It is a highly visited place and deserves to be so rightly. It is a small village with just one walking road and a canal passing through it. There are houses on both sides of the canal. Each house looks different and is landscaped beautifully,...More

It is a long trip; but, we found no other way to get there that would work. If we had rented a car it would not have been faster and much easier to get lost as it is not on any direct route. We had a truly lovely day that... More
