Your scenic river cruise through Holland and Belgium begins in the colorful capital of the Netherlands-Amsterdam. Visit the world’s largest flower garden at Keukenhof-with more than seven million bulbs, including tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths planted across 70 acres in Lisse. Alternatively, you can also visit the charming town of Gouda-famous for its Dutch cheese and other culinary delights.
Next, sail to Antwerp, Belgium’s second-largest city, combining ancient buildings and monuments with modern architecture. Join a guided tour of Ghent, including a visit to St. Bavo’s Cathedral and back to Holland to visit Middelburg, Veere, and Willemstad. No trip to Holland is complete without a visit to the technical miracle that is the Delta Works, a storm flood barrier almost six miles long.
Return to Amsterdam to see the most fascinating areas of the city on a canal cruise along the elegant Grachten. You’ll then continue your European vacation with a high-speed train transfer to spend 3 nights in Paris-“The City of Lights.” Enjoy guided sightseeing of this iconic city, and spend another day at your own pace to experience the wonderful cafés, museums, and legendary cityscape in the most romantic city in the world.
