I visited with my husband, did canal cruise trip, unfortunately a dark rainy day still very beautiful. Journy was memorable, well worth a visit if you are visiting Netherlands.

Clearly before anyone can hire a boat they undertake no instruction.... so many people on the canals in little boats with zero understanding how to manoeuvre - especially with a beer in hand!

Me and My Family were very satisfied with Giethoorn. This place is a small village around 90minutes from Amsterdam. Giethoorn not as famous as Volendam or Dams Square, but It is a nice touristy place. Not too big, not crowded, you dont have too queue...More

Really impressed with the friendly staff who were keen to help and arrange good quality boat hire for the day. Central location, linked with a great cafe at the heart of busy Giethoorn. Thank you - thoroughly recommended.

Giethoorn is a very beautiful place, but I found the scenery as seen on google. The drive from amsterdam was only 1.5 hour, so I guess giving it a try won't hurt too much. At least I enjoyed driving a boat in those little canels.
