Meet your guide/driver at our central meeting point in Amsterdam. A comfortable, air-conditioned single deck bus will take you to today’s destinations. The journey takes you through the typical flat Dutch ‘polder’ landscape. Polder is land that has been reclaimed from the sea, and most of the land where you drive through today was a sea until the 1950-ties. Your first destination will be Giethoorn, definitely one of the most picturesque villages of the Netherlands. The town has been one of the most popular tourist villages in the country and is nick named the Dutch Venice. Just like Venice, Giethoorn has many canals and the only way to get around town is by boat or walking. No cars are allowed in the old town, whose history dates back to the middle ages. During a short walking tour trough the village, your guide will reveal the city’s unique character, and give you insider’s tips about great local restaurants, shops, attractions, activities and more.
