Giethoorn makes an excellent outing from Amsterdam. This little eight hundred years old town in the North East of The Netherlands is filled with beautiful canals and fairy tale-like wooden bridges, which make it charming and worth a day trip.

I can’t rave enough about Tomstravel Tours. I just returned from a 3-day pvt. guided tour with Tom. From my first correspondence via email I knew I had selected the BEST touring company to meet my specific needs. I wanted to visit the areas north of Amsterdam, specifically the picture postcard village of Giethoorn. He created a terrific and very FLEXIBLE itinerary based on my personal interests & activity preferences—-biking, boating, wildlife, & photography. I felt quite fortunate to have Tom as my guide for those 3 remarkable & memorable days. He spoke perfect English and knows his native country inside and out. I learned so much about the areas we visited in addition to enjoying all the sites/activities.

What do we want to do in a Giethoorn day tour from Amsterdam? It’s really enjoyable to walk (or cycle!) in this idyllic -car free- town. But it’s even more fun to go in a boat through the canals, overlooking pristine gardens and picturesque thatched roof cottages. We normally combine it with a visit to another charming town such as Urk or the historical city of Kampen.
