Upon arrival, we'll enjoy a boat excursion (included), to get a closer look at this lively port and a chance to learn about the amazing process of how millions of tons of goods are loaded and transported upstream to many countries including Germany, France, all the way to Switzerland.
The afternoon is yours to explore Rotterdam’s maritime heritage such as the famous White House of Rotterdam, the Crocked Cube Houses, Erasmus Bridge and other innovative architectural marvels found throughout the city. A visit to the Markthal (market hall) offers a lively atmosphere, plenty of shopping opportunities and a chance sample the edible delights at one of the many food stalls at the famous Binnenrotte. Check in at our 4-Star hotel will be available in the late afternoon, and a three-course or buffet style dinner (included) will be offered that evening at the hotel.
Day 2: Our day begins with breakfast at the hotel (included) to fortify us for a fantastic fun filled flower packed day at the renowned Keukenhof Tulip Gardens. Here, we will experience this year’s annual theme “Flower Power,” which features 7 million flowering bulbs in a breathtaking Spring display. Enjoy wandering the boxwood maze with that overlooks the fields of blooming tulips that surround the park or visit the working windmill where you can purchase a ticket for a “whisper boat ride.”
The main attraction, The Flower Parade, passes the Keukenhof Garden along the Keukenhof Corso Boulevard at about 15:30 in the afternoon (time will be reconfirmed by your guide). We suggest getting in place early to ensure you have a good location and vantage point to see the large flowered covered floats, luxuriously decorated cars and parade spectacles. On our way back, we will enjoy a scenic drive through The Hague and be able to snap pictures of the well-known International Court of Justice. We arrive back at the hotel for a relaxing evening and a three-course or buffet style dinner (included). The rest of the evening is yours to continue your explorations of Rotterdam, or you can unwind and recharge for the final leg the of the journey.
Day 3: Our final day begins with breakfast at the hotel (included) before departing for the Clara Maria Farm, a fourth-generation Dutch family owned and operated cheese farm and clog production. Here the van Wees family will proudly introduce us to some classic Dutch traditions with a cheese-making and clog-manufacturing demonstrations followed by delicious cheese samples and a chance to purchase wares and gifts from their shop. Next, we journey to the heart of downtown Amsterdam, where you are free to explore the city’s museums and canals at your leisure.
