6-day Tulip Cruise Cologne-Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Cologne

Spring in Holland

Fares From £1,295 pp


Tulips? Holland! Come with us and see for yourself: In spring, the Keukenhof flower garden is full of blossoms of every conceivable colour and shape. Of course the itinerary includes a visit to Amsterdam with a round trip along the famous canals past the traditional town houses. The region of North Holland is principally known for its idyllic nature and as the home of the typical Durch windmills. The large expanse of continuous inland water at Markermeer and Lake Ijssel will be a great addition to your cruise experience. Rotterdam and its vast seaport and the sedate Nijmegen contribute their own part to this cruise for all the senses.
