Following our overnight flight from Boston to Amsterdam, we transfer to Bruges, Belgium where we spend our first night at the 4 Star Crowne Plaza Hotel.  The following day, we hop aboard the Premium Barge MAGNIFIQUE for a second night & tour of Bruges.  Spend the next 6 days cruising & biking through some of the most beautiful cities of Flanders (Western Belgium) & Holland:  Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp, Kinderdijk, & Amsterdam.  In Kinderdijk, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, we’ll see an impressive row of nineteen large windmills, one of the most iconic sites in Holland.  Check out the back of this flyer for detailed barge itinerary.  After our last night on the barge in Amsterdam, we’ll spend our final 2 nights at the 4 Star Movenpick Hotel Amsterdam City Center before flying back to Boston.
