2023 Tours

March 18-April 1, 2023

Small as the country by the North Sea may be, it has a dazzling number of historical, cultural and engineering sights. From the Dutch masters of painting to sober medieval and ornate renaissance architecture.  Explore historic monuments, modern engineering, and, to pique your gustatory senses, a tremendous variety of cheeses and chocolate.

Netherlands

These are just a few of the many exciting and interesting things the country has to offer. Come with us and see the very best of them, enhanced by fascinating lectures and guided tours executed by local experts. Bikes will be on board and will be available for organized tours.

You will discover the Netherlands in an unusual way via its most typical element: the water. Rivers, canals, and lakes abound, and you will sail many of them on the lovely Fiep. This comfortable barge will be both your main mode of transportation and your group’s hotel for the entire trip. The Grand Tulip tour gives you a wonderful insight into the heart and soul of The Netherlands.
