We booked this tour by chance on Internet, after reading all the good reviews. This trip was very excellent! Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. He was also our car driver, and a boat driver LOL We had a very good time, thank you!

Said was awesome! Our tour began with Said picking us up at our hotel which saved us from figuring out transportation to the original pick up spot. He then drove us to Zaanse schans to tour of windmills, cheese store, and wooden shoe demonstration. All were very interesting. Then we went to Giethoorn and it was a delightful town. We had a delicious lunch, ice cream snack and a fun canal cruise! Said was there to meet any needs we had. We would highly recommend him for future tours!

This was the most amazing trip in the Netherlands(of course there would be a lot)This fulfilled our fairy tale dream in Giethoorn. Scenic view and experience roaming around by boat. We had our trip from Zaanse schans to Giethoorn and we had a beautiful long day. But it’s all worth it. Said was our guide and through him we had not just fun but we learned a lot. He was very nice and informative. We were in a small group which was really good. And Said was really the best photographer 😃. We are surely going back for next year for the Tulips festival.

Great tour ! Syed was our guide and he was super helpful and insightful. We enjoyed both villages a lot. The windmills were cool to see and the boat tour was excellent ( we got a small boat and Syed was driving it ). Would recommend it to anyone !

Cancelled Trip to Giethoorn
JOHN

We booked for Giethoorn trip for for July Friday 23, 2021. On Thursday (July 22nd) evening our presumed tour guide called us to request if we could postpone the trip to Saturday 24, 2021 and that he would come and pick us up at our residence in Amsterdam at 9 AM. We agreed and on Saturday morning at 7 AM we received an SMS message (which we opened a couple of hours later as we were waiting for the driver who obviously did not show up) stating that the tour guide vehicle is broken, and if we could postpone the trip for another day. Unfortunately we were leaving Amsterdam a couple of days later. It was quite disappointing to loose that opportunity to visit Giethoorn, considering that the cancellation was at the last minute and we couldn't plan another option in such short notice. However we did receive the same day, full refund of the trip, and from that point of view, Viator and the tour guide were professional.

Saïd was a very good guide and driver. Thanks to him, we spent a nice day despite the corona virus. We were only two people so it was fantastic.
