Giethoorn is a unique water village in the Netherlands. The village is also called the Venice of the Netherlands. The excavation of peat soils has created a unique canal system, so that the houses in the center can only be reached by boat. The houses in the center of Giethoorn are picturesque farmhouses with thatched roofs. In addition, the houses are on small islands since they are all completely surrounded by water. This makes it impossible to reach the houses by car. Only by boat or walking where a bridge must be crossed. During the cruise you will sail through these small canals and under the bridges while enjoying coffee or tea. The guide / captain gives you text and explanation about the unique water village. The emergence of the village is discussed as well as unique features that make the village different from all other villages in the Netherlands. Afterwards you will have sailed through the center and over Lake Giethoorn and you have learned how Giethoorn was created.

* A traveler said: "My third time in Holland and can’t get enough of it! I did use Toms Travel Tours in the past and decided to hire them again. This time we went further than the obvious locations in Amsterdam and it was glorious! We went for the first day to Haarlem, which was, as they post it, a complete delight! What a cute interesting city! On this one day my mum joined us and Joyce took some much care that she was having a good time as much as she did. But this was only the start! We went on a second tour to the countryside, which was so pristine and we learned a lot about the Dutch water management. Our guide, Chris, was a fountain of knowledge in this respect! On another day we went to the Rijksmuseum with Ingrid. Two hours passed watching and learning about art without even noticing, she made the visit so interesting and dynamic. After this, Tom organized a private canal cruise for us that was the absolute top of all our trip. What a treat! Big big thanks to Tom, Ana and team for this wonderful experience!"

Haarlem in the Second World War, Resistance & Jewish history Walking Tour
This is a new unique and original tour of Haarlem that shows the significant sites in and around the town centre associated with the Second World War, the Dutch Resistance Movement, the people they tried to protect and local Jewish history and monuments. Nearly everyone has heard of Anne Frank, but not many people know of Corrie Ten Boom and her family who sheltered and smuggled hundreds of Jewish people to safety until they themselves were betrayed. If you have seen the recent film "the Resistance Banker" then you will have heard of Walraven "Wally" van Hall who secretly bankrolled the Dutch Resistance movement, sadly Wally was executed in Haarlem to serve as an example to the people here. Several key members of the Dutch Resistance movement including local heroine Hannie Schaft were from Haarlem. She was only one among many local people who decided to join the resistance. On the tour you will find out more about their stories and wartime in Holland and the Netherlands in general.
