As a solo traveller, my preference is to join small group tours, (ours consisted of myself and 3 others). It was a very fun trip and our guide Ibrahim was very cheerful and entertaining and insightful. He wanted us to get a great experience with the boat ride within the village and I enjoyed very much. Next time, I will visit with my family and hopefully, Ibrahim will still be our guide. Planning to come back during spring time to see the colors of Giethoorn.
