On this garden-and nature-themed Tulip Time cruise, visit spectacular Keukenhof near Lisse, Antwerp’s Botanical Gardens, the world’s largest flower auction, and small hidden-away private gardens in Amsterdam. An expert will travel with you on this cruise, sharing his knowledge about botany and the world of plants.

Your scenic river cruise through Holland and Belgium begins in the colorful capital of the Netherlands-Amsterdam. Visit the world’s largest flower garden at Keukenhof-with more than seven million bulbs, including tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths planted across 70 acres in Lisse.

Next, sail to Antwerp, Belgium’s second-largest city. Discover its ancient buildings and monuments combining with modern architecture, or visit its splendid Botanical Gardens-an oasis in the heart of the city. Join a guided tour of Ghent, including a visit to St. Bavo’s Cathedral and back to Holland to visit Middelburg, Veere, and Willemstad. No trip to Holland is complete without a visit to the technical miracle that is the Delta Works, a storm flood barrier almost six miles long.

This beautiful and historic springtime river cruise concludes in Holland’s capital city. Do not miss a visit to the world largest flower auction followed by a canal cruise along the elegant grachten, or a visit to some of the city’s best-kept secrets-the private gardens and courtyards of Amsterdam.

You’ll then continue your European vacation with a high-speed train transfer to spend 3 nights in Paris-“The City of Lights.” Enjoy guided sightseeing of this iconic city, and spend another day at your own pace to experience the wonderful cafés, museums, and legendary cityscape in the most romantic city in the world. Your Local Host® is available with recommendations and assistance in making the most of your free time in Paris-as part of your Monograms Paris vacation package.

Your Tulip Time cruise and visit to Paris will bloom in your memory for many seasons to come. You’ll want to return again or add more beautiful journeys to your future travel wishes.
