netherlands_keukenhofIt’s not too early to begin planning for spring travel, Road Trips Gardeners. If tulips and other spring flowers are on your mind, consider this: Emerald Waterways has a new tour just for you.

Highlights of the Netherlands & the Beauty of Belgium cruise begins and ends in Amsterdam, circling canals through Holland and northern Belgium. The eight-day, seven-night tour begins April 6, 2015.

The tour begins with a canal cruise and walking tour along Amsterdam’s historic, cobbled streets. Also included? An excursion to Keukenhof Gardens, regarded as the most beautiful spring garden in the world and Europe’s largest (think: more than seven million tulips, daffodils and hyacinths filling close to 80 acres with color and fragrance).

In Antwerp, Belgium’s second largest city, a walking tour reveals a modern and organized city that retains an intriguing medieval heart. Bruges, once home to the world’s first stock exchange in the 13th century, looks like something out of a fairy-tale. In the Netherlands, there’ll be stops at Arnhem, Edam (a town known all over the world for its cheese) and the fishing village of Volendam.

Emerald Waterways is part of the Scenic Tours Group.
