After morning pickup at your Amsterdam accommodations, travel in an air-conditioned minivan or car across the Dutch border into Belgium. The tour can accommodate up to six people, making it a great option for families and small groups.
Begin with a visit to Bruges, often referred to as the ‘Venice of the North’ and known for its exceptionally well-preserved medieval architecture and fairy tale–like charm. As you wander through the narrow cobblestone streets and past scenic canals, learn about the rich history of this West Flanders capital and how it was a dominant center of trade during the Middle Ages.
Continue on to Ghent, capital of East Flanders. Learn why this university and port town is called one of the world's most authentic cities, and discover the unique melding of medieval history and modern culture as you explore its winding streets and contemporary attractions with your guide.
Relax on the return ride to Amsterdam, where the full-day tour concludes with hotel drop-off in the evening.
