Trip Itinerary

08:30 - 9:00 - Pick up Location
Hotel ibis Amsterdam Centre, Stationsplein 49, 1012 AB Amsterdam, Netherlands.
11:30 - Giethoorn
We invite you to the magical hamlet of Giethoorn in the north of the Netherlands for an unforgettable experience. The village is known as the “Venice of the North” because of its many canals and lack of roads. On a 1-hour guided boat excursion, you will visit the fantasy settlement of less than 3,000 inhabitants. A leisurely cruise around the canals allows you to take in the landscape. On foot, tour the restored village and witness how each farmhouse is situated on a little man-made island. Explore the village’s small walkways to find hundreds of bridges and take in the tranquil environment.
15:00 - Zaanse Schans (Windmills Village)
Your final stop will be at the most charming typical 17th-century village, which has dwellings and a cluster of wonderfully restored windmills from the nation’s industrial background. In the picturesque village of Zaanse Schans, you may wander past the gorgeous greenhouses and visit a factory where the clogs renowned in this region of the nation are created. Nothing beats Dutch cheese! Come taste some at the Catharina Hoeve Farm. Learn how they make world-famous Dutch cheeses as well.
17:00 - End of the tour
Hotel ibis Amsterdam Centre, Stationsplein 49, 1012 AB Amsterdam, Netherlands.
