En esta excursión de día completo para grupos pequeños, descubra Giethoorn, la pintoresca ciudad donde la gente vive con y sobre el agua. Disfrute de un paseo en barco a lo largo de las granjas restaurada. Tendrá tiempo libre para almorzar y explorar el lugar por su cuenta. El recorrido continuará hasta el Dique Cerrado (Afsluitdijk), el dique de 32 kilómetros que conecta las provincias del norte de Holanda y Frisia. Los Países Bajos son famosos en el mundo entero por cómo tratan la gestión del agua. El Afsluitdijk, construido para dominar lo que antiguamente era el Zuiderzee (ahora el lago Ijsselmeer) es un excelente ejemplo de la destreza holandesa con el agua. (Nota importante: Solo visitaremos el Dique Cerrado durante el período del 18 de marzo al domingo, 27 de octubre de 2019). A continuación, nos dirigimos de vuelta a Ámsterdam y podrá disfrutar también como complemento de un crucero por los canales de Ámsterdam de 1 hora, que podrá realizar a su propio ritmo (valorado en 16 EUR). .
History of Enclosing Dike interesting. Boat ride was not good. 81 people were crammed into 2 boats. We were seated with out backs facing the front with a window and a wood pillar blocking my bride for one hour. Uncomfortable to have people sitting so close on back bench with occasional bumpimg if we tried to turn to see. Exploring the islandWas good, ice creamGood, prices in shops good.
I enjoyed this day trip- gave some variety to my Amsterdam trip and even though I love the hustle and bustle of a city, this was a nice change. The village was very interesting and I enjoyed the boat ride. Compared to other tours I found this one very relaxing and not rushed at all. The bus ride is not long and we had plenty of free time to explore Giethoorn, Also, often on these tours there is no time to eat or you just grab something quick for lunch- not the case at all for this tour. We had plenty of time to have a nice lunch in a restaurant.
We had an nice trip to Giethoorn. It is a pretty and picturesque location. We went for a boat ride as part of the tour, later we went on our own for a walk and had a leisurely lunch. A laid back and enjoyable day.
Gisthoorn was great And it was neat to see the cute village of Giethoorn by boat but we feel the tour operator Lindbergh stretched it into a full day to charge more. We spent 4 hours or more in a bus looking at nothing but flat farm fields to see the inland sea dike. There was nothing to see??? Also we had too much free time in the tiny village to shop or eat lunch. This tour needs to be 5-6 hours. Drive to Giethoorn, take boat ride, 1-2 hours free time return to Amsterdam. Tour guide was fine, boat guide was good and enjoyed the village for 1 1/2 hours.
