Excellent attention. For personal reasons, we could not get to the tour in time, but we contacted immediately on the cell phone and they gave us directions to get to the place and join the tour.

Amazing tour! I will not hesitate to recommend it to everyone. Cherry, the tour guide was amazing. She is very friendly, knowledgeable and caring. She told us a lot of interesting stories about the village and Netherlands.
The day started at the cafe next to Victoria hotel, right opposite to Amsterdam central station, very easy to find. The tour guide and driver were very punctual. The coach took us straight to the centre of the village. We had a nice lunch together in Giethoorn, then had a boat trip, and 2 hours to explore the village on our own. I managed to take tons of nice photos.
On the way back, Cherry shared with us the photos of Giethoorn in different seasons and some other nice places in Netherlands.
Another thing to mention, I was having a bad cold on that day, and Cherry frequently checked if I'm ok. She is very caring person!
Next time when I'm back, I will definitely join her tour again!

Cherry is very caring and informative. It is her own business so she tries to do her best to make the trip most enjoyable

Cherry and Pierre are an amazing duo and made this trip truly spectacular. They are super knowledgeable and made the tour an interactive experience I would highly recommend this day trip to Giethoorn, a villiage that looks like it comes straight from a post card.

The most lovely place! Just like in the pictures. Very nice people. The boat trip was great and the captain more so. You have plenty of time to walk trough the lovely houses, take photos and buy suvenirs. You can also have a nice lunch in those surroundings.
I strongly recommend this trip

Wow this was an amazing experience. Our tour guide Said was amazing! He was so accommodating, helpful and kind. He was able to make us feel welcome and he helped us experience the best visit we could have! The town is amazingly beautiful, the drive was nice and Said was the only tour guide in Amsterdam who ensured I received a front seat as I get motion sickness from car rides. This was an awesome tour and I'd recommend to anyone! Take this tour! We lucked out and only had 9 in the group making it much cozier. We had a nice canal ride and a lunch not included that was good and worth the 15 euro including beverage. The town is very quaint. Go there for the scenery, it's not a place to shop or do a lot of activities but trust me, you don't need them - the scenery is breathtaking! Thanks Said!

Wonderful tour! The guide, Cherry, was amazing, so attentive to the needs of all participants. Giethoorn is a charming town and we had a delightful time. Also, Cherry arranged a lunch for those interested and the food was very good as was the service.

Highly recommend this wonderful day trip from Amsterdam. Cherry is the owner of this company. Giethoorn is like English country houses on canals. You are well taken care of on this trip. Victoria hotel is easy central meeting place right at Amsterdam Central Station. You don' have to worry about lunch. On the comfortable luxury coach convenient with washroom, you are given a lunch menu to pre-order from a nice restaurant in Giethoorn, if you choose to join. Almost everyone joined. Food is good. Price is good. Easy walking tour is a relaxing, welcomed stretch after bus ride and lunch. Lots of time to wander around to take lots of photos, and for coffee or ice-cream. Not rushed. Canal tour was fun. Also a chance to see landscape outside of Amsterdam. Bus ride about one and a half hour each way, depending on traffic. Cherry is friendly, calm, and provided great info. The whole experience was leisurely and enjoyable. Giethoorn was beautiful. Must do.

A day trip to Giethoorn is worth the time if you like cottage gardens and walking in a small village setting. Taking a boat ride through the town is worth doing to see the gardens and hear about the history of the town. While the town is worth visiting this company provided little beyond transportation to the town. The tour guide provided no information about the area or people during the 1 hour drive to the town. Also, we had a group of 4 plus the driver squeezed into a small car - very uncomfortable.

I went to Giethoorn on a day trip with Cherry. We had an emergency there which slowed us down but we managed to get to the meeting point almost on time (3 minutes late) but there was no trace of the group or the bus. A few minutes later, Cherry responded to our calls and texts and told us she was coming back.

Immediately after getting inside the bus, Cherry tells us that she thought we were on the bus and that "She was not a computer!". We were not accusing her of anything but she was defensive because she knew she was wrong. We were a group of 26 people so she either did not count or ignored the fact that 2 were missing.

That was not even the worst part. After ignoring our explanation, we went back to our seats and she started berating us while using the microphone and in front of everyone else. As if having to go through the stress of our emergency was not enough, we also had to be publicly shamed. She kept on making jokes about being late and how we were wrong and that she was going to make us spend the night in Giethoorn and that " we are lucky she did not"!!!

I cannot remember everything she said but I was certainly appalled by the treatment buts he obviously could not care less about us. She gave all of her attention to the expats because they can turn into repeated customers whereas we were soon to go away.

Later on, she realized her mistake when she talked about reviews and I gave her a dissatisfied look so she tried to fake some niceness towards us. My friend tried to use this opportunity to explain again what had happened but Cherry wasn't even listening. Terrible person that I do not wish to see again!
