Itinerary

Day 1

Fly to Amsterdam, meet your tour manager and take a leisurely stroll into the heart of the colourful Dutch capital.  Set out on an included canal cruise - which is sure to be a highlight of your visit - before enjoying a small amount of free time exploring the cobblestone streets and winding canals of this exciting city. Why not discover one of Amsterdam's world-class museums or watch the world go by as you sip a coffee from one of its numerous cafés? In the afternoon, continue to central Rotterdam and your hotel.

Day 2

A 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 3

The delightful villages of Holland's windmill-dotted landscape and the reclaimed Zuider Zee form the background to this morning’s tour. 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 one of Holland’s most celebrated crafts as we head to Zaandam and its famous windmills to watch a wooden shoemaking demonstration at Zaanse Schans in Zaandam. Later this afternoon you’ll return to your hotel to relax, freshen up and have dinner in the surrounding area. 

Day 4

After a leisurely breakfast, you’ll depart your hotel and travel a short distance to The Hague, a northern coastal city and the country’s administrative and political centre. As it’s home to an assortment of historical buildings and museums, as well as a charming old town and beautiful beaches, there’s no shortage of things to see and do. Following time in the historical centre there will be time to enjoy the beach with its famous pier and selection of restaurants and shops. Later in the day, you’ll return to Rotterdam’s Centraal Station to catch the evening Eurostar back to London (the journey time is around three hours and 20 minutes).  Back to top
