Great tour. Very organized and the guide was excellent. A visit to Afsluitdijk is very interesting to know part of the history of the Netherlands. Giethoorn is fantastic, it looks like a village from a fairy tale. We had a lot of free time to have lunch, walk around and take lots of pictures.
It was an incredible experience, all the staff were super friendly and attentive at all times. It was totally worth it.
The Giethoorn tour, passing through the closing dock, is highly recommended! The town is fairy tale! Worth knowing.
Great tour! Many thanks to Ivette for the great day! :)
Giethoorn is a fairytale town, totally recommended.
