Tulip Time Cruise

8 Day river cruise: Amsterdam to Amsterdam

10 Days: Saturday, April 6–Monday, April 15, 2019

This river cruise begins in its popular, modern capital of Amsterdam—this 700-year-old city offers an abundance of classic architecture, cafés, and restaurants to explore before you embark on your river cruise through Holland and Belgium. Sail through Rotterdam’s harbor; garden enthusiasts will delight in a visit to see the breathtaking colors of Keukenhof; opt for an excursion to the city of Gouda before sailing to Antwerp—Belgium’s second-largest city, combining ancient buildings and monuments with modern architecture. In Ghent, Belgium, join a local expert for a guided tour of the city, including a visit to St. Bavo’s Cathedral. 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, constructed after the floods of 1953. Return to Amsterdam and see the most fascinating areas of the city on a canal cruise along the elegant Grachten lined with homes dating back to the city’s “Golden Age.” From seemingly unending fields of color from Holland’s gardens, to windmills and waterways of Amsterdam, to the ancient and modern mix of Belgium’s architecture, this European river cruise is sure to grow in your memory for endless seasons to come..
