Your scenic river cruise through Holland and Belgium begins in the colourful capital of the Netherlands—Amsterdam. Visit the world’s largest flower garden at Keukenhof—with more than seven million bulbs, including tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths planted across 70 acres in Lisse.
This beer-enthusiast cruise through Holland includes a beer master travelling with us to host food-and-beer pairings, tastings, and lecture. Visit Antwerp, Belgium’s second-largest city, combining ancient buildings and monuments with modern architecture. Visit a local brewery here to sample Belgian beer, and take a canal boat tour with brewery visit in Ghent, including a visit to St. Bavo’s Cathedral and back to Holland to visit Middelburg, Veere, and Willemstad. 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.
Return to Amsterdam to see the most fascinating areas of the city on a canal cruise with beer experience along the elegant Grachten. Continue your European vacation with a high-speed train to Paris. Spend three nights in Paris—“The City of Light”—to enjoy guided sightseeing in this iconic city with a Monograms holiday package. Spend a free day as well to explore the wonderful cafés, museums, and legendary cityscapes in the most romantic city in the world. Your Local Host is available with recommendations and assistance in making the most of your free time in Paris. Your Tulip Time cruise and visit to Paris will bloom in your memory for many seasons to come.
