Our guide William is the best!!!!!

We have to say that Trigger Tours completely exceeded our expectations! This might not been the cheapest tour but it was really worth the money. I highly recommend private tours over the big group tours.

We had a very professional, knowledgeable and friendly guide. Unfortunately it was raining but that was not the guide her fault. Highly recommended.

Giethoorn is really beautiful, we are very happy that we took this tour. We also went to Zaanse Schans but in our opinion Giethoorn is much more fun. A very unique experience with Trigger Tours.

Great tour with our guide Anja! Thank you Anja!! We also left a review on TripAdvisor 🙂

Our guide Anja was very friendly and had so much knowledge about Giethoorn and the area. We got picked up at our hotel around 9:00am and it was quite a long drive. We arrived at Giethoorn around 12:00am and went on a boat. Giethoorn is really a must-see and to go around a boat is unique experience. This is the main transportation for Giethoorn. The town was very busy but it was still a fun day.

So worth it! This was really a great day with our guide Tony. We enjoyed every minute!

Everything about the tour was wonderful. Trigger Tours customized this tour so we can also see the Afsluitdijk. We can really recommend this to anyone! We were very impressed by how the Dutch deal with water. Our guide William had so much knowledge and was really accommodating. I can’t say enough. Probably one of the best tours we have taken.

We booked this tour after reading many great reviews online. On their TripAdvisor page the reviews were very impressive. But now we understand! The communication beforehand was great since we had many questions. Our guide was super friendly and accommodating. Overall it was a great tour!

The tour was fantastic, led by a knowledgeable and accommodating guide: Robert.

August 23, 2020

A relaxing, informative tour with an amazing guide. Many thanks to Robert for the wonderful day.

August 25, 2020

We stayed in Amsterdam and booked 6 day trips to different destinations outside the city. Out of all these places our favorite was Giethoorn. We visited during the low season so it wasn’t too crowded. Robert gave us a lot of interesting facts about the village and the history of the area. Overall a great tour.

During corona it was great visiting the Netherlands. Giethoorn was very quiet what made it a much better experience. We think this is probably the only time you could experience the village like a real local. The guide was very accommodating and we recommend taking a private boat tour when you arrive.

A really great day besides having to return home early because of the horrible weather.

June 25, 2021

It was a great day with our guide Peter. He is very experienced and a lot of fun. The tour was really private so we were the only one. This made it a great and personal experience. In the past we booked private tours with companies that will put you together with other people. So we were really happy this company actually offered real private tours.

July 3, 2021

Had an unforgetable trip. Very well organised with our amazing tour guide and driver.

July 21, 2021

We did this tour with our family of 7 people and it was great. Peter was an amazing guide!

Giethoorn was amazing! We got really lucky having Peter as our guide.
