Giethoorn Day tour from Amsterdam Schipol Airport

Hi,

I have a one-day layover at Amsterdam Schipol airport in mid October. Does anyone know of any day tour company that does Giethoorn tour within 9 hours inclusive of transfers from and to the airport?

Thanks to advise!

Just DIY, www.discoverholland.com (total up 2 hours using train and bus).

But in October it's arguable whether the trip is worth it. season has finished and gardens are ugly. Broek in Waterland close to Amsterdam would give a comparable experience then for far less travel time and cost.

Agree with above. There is a lot more to see nearby Amsterdam as beautiful as Giethoorn without travelling for 4 hours (two hours to Giethoorn and two hours back). Better use that time to see some nice places nearby like Broek in Waterland, Marken or Muiden.

Do you think it would be possible to hire a tour guide to ride bikes to those places you mention?

Maybe he could organize it himself?
