Day 1Fly to Amsterdam, meet your Tour Manager and transfer into the heart of the colourful Dutch capital. Spend the afternoon in this exciting city of canals and cobblestones, bars, coffee shops, cafes and world-class museums.
Day 2A wonderful day awaits you today. After breakfast at your hotel, you'll board the coach to begin the journey to the gardens at Keukenhof. Here some seven million flowers carpet the ground in a breath-taking horticultural display that attracts visitors from around the world each year. Wander the pathways that meander through this floral paradise, perhaps stopping in one of the gardens’ restaurants and cafes for lunch. You can even take an optional canal boat ride (payable locally) along the waterways that thread their way through the stunning gardens before returning to your hotel for dinner this evening.
Day 3The delightful villages of Holland's windmill-dotted landscape and the reclaimed Zuider Zee form the background to this morning’s touring. Stroll the pretty streets of the historic fishing village of Volendam – once trodden by the likes of Picasso and Renoir – and catch a glimpse of Dutch life through the ages in its preserved traditional houses. You’ll also enjoy behind the scenes insights into two of Holland’s most traditional crafts as we head to Zaandam and its famous windmills to watch a wooden shoemaking demonstration at Zaanse Schans in Zaandam, and visit the famous cheese-producing town of Edam. Later this afternoon you’ll return to your hotel to relax, freshen up and have dinner in the surrounding area.
Day 4Today you'll bid farewell to your hotel, and return to the airport via Utrecht, one of Holland’s most lovely medieval cities and famed for its Gothic cathedral. Enjoy far-reaching views from Holland’s highest tower, the Dom Tower, and perhaps stop for a coffee, beer or light lunch (the local smoked eel and herring are worth trying) in one of the many cafes, restaurants and bars that line Utrecht’s canals and cobbled streets - a final highlight of your delightful Dutch break.
