In spring the famous bulbfields of Holland bring bursts of colour to the landscape and on this tour we visit Keukenhof Gardens, which offer the visitor 70 acres of colourful splendour, take in the amazing flower parade and experience The Hague and the beautiful town of Delft.
Day 1 We travel to Dover for the short sea crossing to Calais and then make our way through Belgium directly to our hotel in The Hague. Suitable stops will be made en route for meals and refreshments.
Day 2 A full day excursion to the world famous Keukenhof Gardens, with plenty of time to enjoy the gardens created in 1949 as a showpiece for the Dutch ﬂower industry, and to walk among the magniﬁcent displays of tulips and other bulbs which bloom in their millions. During the day you can leave the gardens to view the annual Flower Parade as it makes its way from Noordwijk to Haarlem.
Day 3 This morning we travel to the gorgeous town of Delft and enjoy a 45-minute cruise along the canals, past historic landmarks and centuriesold bridges. Spend the rest of the day in Delft, or return to The Hague – your driver will do two transfers back to your hotel. Tram number 1 departs from outside our hotel, with both the beaches and the city centre only 10 minutes away.
Day 4 We travel through Holland, across Belgium and on to the port of Calais for our afternoon sailing to Dover. We then return to the local area, meeting our taxis and continuing home.
