Duration: 9 Days
Tiptoe through the tulips, tread through famous battlegrounds, and sprint to the irresistible bonbons on this aromatic, multi-country panorama tour. Three nights in Amsterdam, two nights each in Luxembourg and Brussels, plus one night in the medieval town of Bruges is the perfect introduction to the sights and delights of the Benelux countries. Springtime departures include the exploding colour of Holland’s famous bulb fields and the extraordinary Keukenhof Gardens while summer and Autumn departures lead you to the bursting flavours of barley and hops at the Heineken Experience where you’ll hear—and taste—the story of the world-famous beer. With intricate canals flowing as freely as the lager from lively Amsterdam to perfectly preserved Bruges, get ready to float up to some of Europe’s most impressive museums, markets, palaces, cathedrals—and confectionaries!!
