Haarlem

Once a major North Sea trading port surrounded by defensive walls, Haarlem retains its medieval character with picturesque cobblestone streets and gabled houses. With monuments dating back nearly 800 years, it‘s no wonder so many great artists of the Golden Age wanted to capture its beauty and atmosphere. Not only is it home to some of the best museums and world-famous artwork in the Netherlands, it is also regularly voted one of the best shopping cities in the country.

Belgian Delights

Creating great-tasting chocolate is an art, with Belgium chocolate being a gold standard. The chocolate industry dates back to the 17th century when explorers brought back cocoa beans from South America, which were then used to make hot chocolate for the wealthy. Indulge your passion for sweets with a visit to one of Belgium‘s chocolatiers, learn more about how chocolate is made and taste one of the true delicacies of Belgium.

Keukenhof Flower Garden

During this excursion you will see one of Europe’s largest garden displays, the Keukenhof Gardens, which is located close of Amsterdam. This park, with its art, royal flair and creative diversity attracts over a million visitors each year. Seven million tulips, narcissi and hyacinths form a colorful carpet of blooms. Round, oval, triangular and rectangular borders line the park’s driveways, making a cheerful ensemble of colors, shapes and scents. Alternating exhibitions, known as parades, bloom in several pavilions. Numerous sculptures also lurk between the flowerbeds, as harmony between art and nature is a major feature of this park.
