Best of Holland
from $2885
Duration: 7 Days
Trace the steps of the Dutch Masters, ramble through rainbow fields and explore centuries-old maritime heritage, ending your Dutch discovery with Dignie and Gina at a 'Be My Guest' dinner in Groningen.
Day 1
Arrive Amsterdam (2 Nights)
What better place to start your jaunt through Holland than Amsterdam? Spend your day strolling through its pretty streets and tree-lined canals, stopping for a coffee and speculaas along the way. Join your Travel Director and fellow travellers this evening on a scenic canal cruise, including a light meal and welcome drinks, admiring the centuries-old façades.
Day 2
Amsterdam Sightseeing
Delve into the Golden Age and its extraordinary art, architecture and history, traversing the city's inner labyrinth of canals and narrow streets, along which hundreds of sturdy Dutch bicycles rattle day and night. Enjoy a Small Group Sightseeing tour of the Rijksmuseum, featuring the works of great Dutch masters, including Rembrandt's 'The Night Watch'.
Day 3
Amsterdam – Aalsmeer/Keukenhof – The Hague – Delft – Rotterdam
We rise with the birds this morning, taking a trip to Aalsmeer to visit the vibrant flower auction and see the vividly hued blooms for which Holland is so famous. Alternatively, during the flowering season (end of March until mid-May), we'll enjoy an included visit to the tulip fields of Keukenhof - the mesmerising sight of several million flowering bulbs planted across 32 hectares will leave you in absolute awe. This afternoon, we travel through The Hague to the historic town of Delft and 'Dive Into Culture' at the Royal Delft Pottery workshop where we'll gain insights into the manufacturing of this delicate hand-painted blue and white porcelain. We continue to edgy Rotterdam, which was rebuilt from the ground up after being destroyed during World War II. Your orientation tour will reveal an innovative city with architectural treasures worth capturing on camera and a vibrant multicultural scene around every turn.
Day 4
Rotterdam – Arnhem – Oosterbeek
We travel north to Arnhem to see John Frost Bridge, so named to pay tribute to the commander of the British forces that held the bridge for four days with a mere 750 soldiers, during the World War II Battle of Arnhem. We stop for a visit of the Airborne Museum to learn about the Battle of Arnhem. This afternoon, we'll also visit the Hoge Veluwe Park and the Kröller-Müller Museum, featuring the second-largest Van Gogh collection in the world.
Day 5
Oosterbeek – Zwolle – Groningen
We head north to the beautiful Hanseatic city of Zwolle, where we'll join our 'Local Specialist' for a walking tour through its medieval centre. Ending our day in Gronginen, we'll 'Connect With Locals' joining Dignie and Gina on their farm for a hearty 'Be My Guest dinner' and meet-and-greet with their neighbour's cows, just in time to see them being milked.
Day 6
Groningen – Volendam – Amsterdam
'Dive Into Culture' and saddle up to explore the university city of Groningen during a guided bicycle tour of its medieval centre. Ramble along the city's ring of canals like a local, before enjoying a stunning drive through the mesmerising Frisian Lake District en route to Volendam, a former fishing port on the edge of IJsselmeer. 'Dive Into Culture' and learn about the craft of wooden clog making and Dutch cheese, followed by a celebratory Farewell Dinner.
