2023 Tour Details
Tiptoe through the tulips, tread through famous battlegrounds, and sprint to the irresistible bonbons on this aromatic tour. Three nights in Amsterdam, two nights each in Luxembourg and Brussels, plus one night in the medieval town of Bruges is the perfect introduction to the sights and delights of the Benelux countries. Early springtime departures include the exploding color of Holland’s famous bulb fields and the extraordinary Keukenhof Gardens while late spring time, summer and fall departures give you the chance to visit Floriade, the international garden show that takes place only every 10 years. With intricate canals flowing as freely as the lager from lively Amsterdam to perfectly preserved Bruges, get ready to float up to some of Europe’s most impressive museums, markets, palaces, cathedrals—and confectionaries!We love Paris in the springtime! We love Paris in the fall! And you’ll love spending three nights in the City of Light with a high-speed train trip from Brussels to Paris. Sail on the Seine, sip champagne, shop on the Champs-Élysées, or sit for a street portrait at Montmartre. Whatever you do, don’t forget Paris!

"A European tour is very educational and lots of fun. It is always enjoyable to see guests return home with thousands of beautiful pictures and wonderful memories. My greatest satisfaction as a Tour Director has always been that I can let my guests not only see a city, but also feel and experience the absolute magic of a city like Paris. That cannot be found in any guidebook or on the Internet!"
Escorting tours for more than 15 years
"After many years of studying history then tourism, plus combining that with my love of travelling and exploring, becoming a Tour Director was an essential part of my DNA. For me having a part in assisting guests to enjoy the diversity, extraordinary beauty and the unique culture that Europe has to offer is unbelievably satisfying. I am constantly told by my guests that "You love being a Tour Director don't you Earl?", to which I simply reply, "Is it that obvious?""
