Netherlands Escorted River Cruises
Holiday tours along the Rhine and Amstel
The Netherlands comprises enchanted castles perched on grassy hilltops, twisting canals and endless fields of dazzling flowers that are punctuated with windmills which are symbolic of the country. Yet there are so many more reasons to choose an Amsterdam cruise; uncover rich histories of ancient sites on guided tours and become absorbed in the cultural diversity of each destination.
On a Rhine cruise you sail to many different countries including Holland, Germany, France, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Belgium. Docking at many towns and cities along the way you can enjoy interesting tours and excursions that get you acquainted with notable highlights. On a holiday in Holland you can visit the historic and charming village of Edam which is most famous for its waxy cheese before sailing to Nijmegen, the Netherland's oldest city. Antwerp in Belgium is a lively city that boasts extraordinary architecture exhibited by the impressive Houses of the Guild and the Town Hall. The pedestrianised Grote Markt lies at the heart of Antwerp's old city and its vibrant atmosphere makes it an exciting place to explore. When you return to Amsterdam on a cruise in springtime you can admire the gorgeous displays of colourful flowers and take a tour of the windmill at the Keukenhof Gardens.
