WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY
Our Smithsonian tour was amazing. It was educational, scenic and fun. All the guides were exceptional and truly gave us insight into our destination.”
The tour "Waterways of Holland and Belgium" was a truly wonderful, joyous experience - the places visited were interesting and often awe-inspiring; the ship was a lovely "base" and the leaders all were marvelous - and, I might add, we had a thoroughly delightful group of fellow travelers!”

BRUSSELS PRE-CRUISE OPTION
The capital of Belgium, this cosmopolitan city has become a crossroads of modern Europe—both the European Union and NATO have their headquarters here; residents speak variations of French, Flemish and German; and the grand boulevards and parks have a Parisian flavor while retaining Flemish character. Accommodations for two nights are in a deluxe, centrally located hotel.
AMSTERDAM POST-CRUISE OPTION
The historic heart of Amsterdam, laced with tree-shaded canals and stately 16th- and 17th-century merchant houses, is designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, and is the perfect prelude to your cruise. A guided city tour acquaints you with its landmarks and famous monuments. Walk through Jordaan, the most picturesque neighborhood in Amsterdam and a center for art, musicians and antiques; and visit the impressive Anne Frank House museum. Enjoy Five-Star accommodations for two nights in The Renaissance Amsterdam Hotel.
