Holiday Information

There is simply no better way to enjoy iconic Dutch tulips in the "Garden of Amsterdam" than on a 5 day mini spring break. Spring in Holland is the most beautiful season, so why not enjoy it cycling and cruising to some unforgettably beautiful areas to see where Dutch tulips – and a wide range of other flowers - are grown, before being shipped around the world? Enjoy some memorable days on board your comfortable barge, with excellent service and a gentle itinerary. 
The Tulip Tour starts in the fascinating city of Amsterdam, called, by some, the smallest metropolis of Europe. Highlights of the city include the UNESCO heritage-listed canal system, its quirky ‘leaning’ buildings, Anne Frank’s home, the Rembrandt House Museum, the Royal Palace of Amsterdam and Dam Square. 
During the tour you can visit the famous Bloemenmarkt, the world's only floating flower market in the centre of Amsterdam. You'll also discover the open air museum ‘Zaanse Schans’ with its beautiful windmills, traditional wooden houses, an old Dutch village, a cheese farm and a traditional wooden clog maker and enjoy guided bicycle tours and some city walks.
Other highlights include the historic city of Haarlem, the world famous Keukenhof flower park near Lisse and the largest flower auction in the world at Aalsmeer. (The flower auction is not open on the weekends and holidays; if your trip departs on 27 March, 28 March or 19 April a visit will not be possible).
