Private Paleis Het Loo & Giethoorn Tour

Giethoorn, Paleis Het Loo and Apeldoorn
5 out of 5 stars (1 review)

Description


You will be picked up at your hotel in Amsterdam and driven through the gorgeous Dutch countryside to the beautiful town of Apeldoorn in the province of Gelderland. Once in Apeldoorn, your driver will show you around the Paleis Het Loo, or the “Het Loo Palace.” However, the building is not a palace, but a gentleman’s summer retreat home replete with a magnificent Baroque garden. Designed by Jacob Roman and Johan van Swieten, the classic Dutch Baroque house was completed in 1686 for King William III and Mary II of England. After restoration in the 1960s, the building was opened to the public with a national museum and a library devoted to the Royal House of Orange-Nassau. Entrance is not included.

After your tour of the grounds, your driver will take you to the town of Giethoorn in the province of Overijssel. The town was founded by fugitives from the Mediterranean area in 1230AD and is known as the “Venice of the North”- instead of main roads, the village has canals. Aside from biking, villagers tend to get around by boat and most houses are built on islands connected to each other with high bridges. After you get some free time to explore the town on your own, your driver will take you back to your hotel in Amsterdam.

Reviews

" Het Loo & Giethoorn "
5 out of 5 stars
The palace at Het Loo includes 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th-century rooms, well furnished and well labeled, in English as well as Dutch, not to mention extensive and beautiful gardens. ***** Giethoorn = charming village of thatched houses on canals. **** Our driver Wim was affable, knowledgeable, accommodating. He speaks excellent English and has a good sense of humor. You could not ask for a better driver. ******
