Let a comfortable, air-conditioned luxurious minivan take you to today’s first destination in about 90 minutes. The journey goes 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 Giethoorn is definitely one of the most picturesque villages of the Netherlands. The town has been one of the most popular tourist villages of 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. After a short walking tour of the village you have time at leisure to discover the village on your own. Your driver/guide will reveal the city’s unique character, and give you insider’s tips about great local restaurants, shops, attractions, activities and more.
