Kids really loved the boat tour. Rowing your own is strongly recommended instead of a guided and shared one. To do so better to check-in around noon to find an available boat. Then an hourish walk would be fine. Absolutely the boat trip. If you’re...More

We visited Giethoorn on a whim and it turned out to be the highlight of our 5-day trip to the Netherlands! I'm not sure if we rented a boat from this place or not, there are many, but we rented a boat for 1.25 hours...More

We were questioning whether we should take the drive and do this, and I am so glad we did. It's a beautiful place to see. We went on an overcast weekday and arrived before noon. Very little water traffic at first, but it became busier...More

We rented a boat for 2 hours, but we were held back by traffic for more than 45 minutes . The owner did not return part of our deposit claiming we were responsible for returning the boat late

If you wish to travel this place, rent a boat is the best option. You can follow the route provided by the owner and take a short boat trip. This place is so lovely which like living in a fairytale.

We had heard about Giethoorn and were very glad we went there. Thankfully, it was not on a weekend, so there were plenty of boats available to rent, and the canals were not too crowded, especially in the nature area. We had a very relaxing...More

An unique and calming experience in Giethoorn. Try to be there before 10am to avoid big crowd of tourists. It's worthy to spend whole day there, especially when the weather is good!

Do not waste time and money on a 2-3 hour trip on a boat. a 1 hour trip is fine, or maybe 2x1 hour trips. Fact is, the nature reserve part is a waste. Once you have seen a reed, the others will pale in...More

A day Trip to  Giethoorn, 130 kms from Schipol , is highly recommended. It is an idyllic village with thatched houses on either side of the canals, that stay connected by  around 170 small wooden bridges. Apparently  the  population is only  2,620.  Giethoorn is often...More

I’m sorry there doesn’t seem to be a contact phone number. There are quite a lot of these operators by the canal side. It gets VERY busy.
