Bus tour to Giethoorn from Amsterdam (how long it takes?)

Hello,

Please, could anyone inform me if there is any day tour Bus from Amsterdam which would take us to Giethoorn ?

Could it be done in one day? Viewing its photos it seems that it's indeed an idyllic village.

All your help and insights are greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Meylan

Travel by publlic transport will take 2:20h. (single) and cost +/- €40 p.p. return

First train from Amsterdam to Steenwijk, then

Not sure if a day trip to Giethoorn from Amsterdam is worth the effort. You'll spend 4-5 hours on the road going out and back. I would only recommend this if you see this as an opportunity to enjoy the countryside from the window of a bus or train. Otherwise I would recommend visiting a nice village closer to Amsterdam, such as Marken, Volendam, Enkhuizen, Muiden of Delft. Not as special as Giethoorn, I have to admit, but much less of a hassle.

The journey to this lovely village is nearly 85 miles from Amsterdam.

I was driving and it took us nearly 1:30 min to reach this heavenly village.

A visit to this village is a must for the tourist to Neatherland. If possible one must spend a night or 2 in this village. The beauty is breath taking and hats off to the people who made such a place for human habitants. The ones who are reciding in this village have been very fortunate.

The calm and peace from the hussy life is what a human wants and this place is just perfect for destressing from the busy day one gose through this days.

Enjoy and surely sit at one of the pizzeria with a cigar and a bottle of winen, located in the middle of the village.
