Join us for this wonderful river cruise through the waterways of Holland and Belgium during tulip time! You will fly into Amsterdam to board and unpack once for a relaxing 7-night river cruise. Your tour will take you to Volendam, a charming old fishing village. We will travel through the beautiful countryside of Holland, visiting Arnhem and Middleburg, the Dutch Capital of Zeeland. The trip continues on to Belgium, with stops in the Imperial City of Ghent, and then on to Bruges, one of Europe's most perfectly preserved medieval cities. We will continue on to Antwerp, Belgium's second largest city before returning to Holland. We will visit Kinderdijk, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you will marvel at Holland's largest concentration of Windmills. We will also visit the famous Keukenhof Gardens, with over 70 acres of peaceful ponds and more than seven million tulips and other flowers. Our trip will end in Amsterdam with a farewell dinner and a typical Dutch folklore show, before flying home.
