Spring is one of the most beautiful seasons in Holland, so why not enjoy it cycling and cruising to some unforgettably beautiful areas to see where the Dutch tulips – and other spring flowers – are grown before being shipped around the world.
Enjoy some memorable days on board a premium passenger barge while enjoying excellent service and an alternating itinerary. The Tulip Mini-Cruise is centred around the fascinating city of Amsterdam - known by some as '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, the very centre and heart of the city, world class shopping and much, much more.
You can visit the famous Bloemenmarkt, the world’s only floating flower market in the centre of Amsterdam and 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 Gardens near Lisse and the largest flower auction* in the world at Aalsmeer.
*:The flower auction is not open in the weekends and holidays; instead we offer a free tour through the famous canals of Amsterdam.
