Amsterdam - Haarlem - Volendam - Zaanse Schans - Amsterdam

Take a trip back in time to discover the old-world charm and traditions of Holland stopping in the pretty town of Haarlem. We join a Local Specialist this morning for a visit to the Corrie ten Boom House and Museum. Learn how this watchmaker helped countless Jews escape Nazi prosecution during World War II, which would ultimately lead to her arrest. We travel to the quaint fishing village of Volendam on the shores of the Ijsselmeer, our gateway into a Holland of yesteryear. Visit Zaanse Schans, sample delicious Dutch cheeses and investigate the inner-workings of one of the country's many windmills. Along the way, you'll learn about the fascinating history of the Zuiderzee and its incredible story of land reclamation and battle against the encroaching sea. This evening, we join some of our local friends on a farm and indulge in a meal of authentic Dutch delicacies.

Our next stop is edgy Rotterdam, which was almost completely rebuilt after World War II. Ascend the iconic Euromast Tower for spectacular panoramic views of the world's largest port city before meandering back to Amsterdam via Kinderdijk to see the stunning views of a series of 18th century windmills.

Amsterdam - Gouda - Amsterdam

The powerful aroma of delicious Dutch cheese will infuse our senses today. Seemingly frozen in time with its beautiful 15th century town hall and medieval cheese weighing station, Gouda's status as a cheese trading town dates back to the Middle Ages. Witness this proud tradition first-hand in the town's beautiful Market Square before spending the rest of the day at leisure (Please note, during the opening of Keukenhof, an excursion to see the tulip fields will be included instead of the visit to Gouda). Returning to Amsterdam this evening, you'll be treated to a superb Farewell Dinner in the heart of the city.

NOTE: Keukenhof excursion included tickets during Tulip season as an alternative to Gouda.
