Had a great day out to Giethoorn on this trip - we had a brilliant guide called Aku who was very knowledgeable about the area and also very helpful and friendly. Aku organised the boat trip which was very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend this trip - Geithoorn is a beautiful place to visit!

Giethoorn Canal Tour
Susan_M, Aug 2023
A great small tour through the country side to the small town of Giethoorn. Loved cruising the canals and seeing the houses. First time to ever see a peat lake. Don’t miss it.
Day in Giethoorn with fantastic guide
Jonathan_C, Aug 2023
One of the best tours we have ever been on. Giethoorn itself is quite pleasant. Wall to wall tourists, but we knew that going in. What made the tour special was our guide, Aku. Extremely knowledgeable about all things Giethoorn, Amsterdan, Holland, etc., but also worldly wise, with a fascinating background. Someone we would have been happy to sit and talk with for hours.
Great tour, flexible...

Absolutely fantastic tour
Gary_A, July 2023
AKu the driver was so attentive to everyone. Witty and informative guy. This is a must do when in Amsterdam. Highly recommend this.
Best of tours, cutest village
Andrea_L, July 2023
Highly recommend. I’ve gone twice with different guests and all were impressed with the tour and our guide. I’ve gone on five boat tours in the Netherlands with a friend of mine, and he remarked this was the best by far—handily beating the booze cruises we’ve been on. Aku is a great tour guide This is a complete experience—pick up and drop off from Centraal, commentary on the ride to Giethorn and knowledge about the charming town and its history, but also the best times to beat traffic for a superior boating tour. He picked us on time, drove safely and speedily, and was considerate and welcoming. His recommendations for where to spend our free time time exploring the town and the dining options were excellent. His hospitality is best in class—he not only pointed out some of the best sights, but took group photos of the whole boat that turned out great.
Excellent trip and excellent guide!

My tour guide Anzi Aku was a delight to travel with. Nothing was too difficult for him to help with. He was very knowledgeable not only about Geithoorn but the Netherlands in general and I was able to learn a lot about the history of the country from him. Highly recommend a tour with Aku as he will really make your trip memorable. Thank you Aku!!
Amazing day tour

Beautiful village
Carol_F, June 2023
Akuma was a fantastic guide. I would highly recommend this tour. The boat tour around the village allowed us to see a lot. With mobility issues, he was great at assisting us into and out of the boat. We lucked out with a perfect day, it was absolutely gorgeous.
Great Tour
Stella_L, June 2023
We had a wonderful day with Aku. The drive was a bit long but Giethoorn was worth it. The boat ride was enjoyable and the village was beautiful. We appreciated Aku picking us up at the hotel because we were a small group. Everything about the day was great. I highly recommend this tour.
Favorite tour!
Erin_C, June 2023
Best tour! Aku was an amazing guide. Safe driver, knowledgeable, and friendly. You could tell he loves his job and works hard to ensure the best trip possible for his guests. The ride is about 1.5 hours through beautiful countryside. We stopped at an AMAZING restaurant recommended by Aku for lunch, then did the hour boat ride. There was plenty of time to explore the village and shop. 10/10 would recommend and will do again next time I’m in the area.
Highly recommended, great tour guide

Fantastic day out for families
Andrea_L, May 2023
My family had one last full day in Amsterdam and we wanted to do something special and memorable. So glad we booked this day tour. Aku was a really personal and helpful guide, super attentive and knowledgeable. He makes you feel like a welcome guest to the Netherlands. He planned our small group trip very well to Giethoorn and always checked that each member of the group was happy with our choices. He did his best to avoid the crowded bits so you can really enjoy the Giethoorn experience. Great van drive, great lunch spot, great boat ride, wonderful alone time, and a really nice treat to stop at the beach on the way back. Super nice guy, one of the best tours we've had.

Our day trip to Giethoorn was one of our best days In Amsterdam. A beautiful sunny day. It was an amazing experience , Aku has made this trip a most memorable one. Aku was a fantastic guide. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and our tour was very enjoyable. We highly recommend Aku and his small group tour to everyone. Also Aku will provide a chance to ride the boat by ourself for sometime alone the cannel and the lake, so it was another great experienced we ever had. Thanks again Aku for making this trip very enjoyable
