Giethoorn Tour – Custom Private Tour (8-hours)

Giethoorn is an idyllic village in Overijssel where countless thatched farms have been built on small peat islands connected by over 170 small wooden bridges. In Giethoorn, a typically Dutch village, you can perfectly see how the Dutch love to live with and on the water. In an environment full of lakes, reed beds and forests lies this picturesque village with its many handsome farms with thatched roofs and characteristic wooden bridges. Giethoorn was established as a settlement of peat harvesters. Peat cutting created ponds and lakes, and people built houses on the islands between them. Visit ‘The Venice of Holland’ and enjoy the sight of unique farms from the water’s surface.

Wilfred was an excellent tour guide. We had a great experience in Giethoorn and a good lunch at a new spot away from the crowds. We say an amazing windmill and then a fun visit at the dairy farm. We thoroughly enjoyed our day!

Stefka was an excellent guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and flexible in working our itinerary to fit the weather and my desires. She also provided an excellent vehicle. Could not have asked for more.
