Riverboat Cruise: Holland and Belgium in Spring 2017 SOLD OUT

  • Tauck's Esprit Riverboat

    Belgium and Holland, Amsterdam (map)

    51.231205 4.404637

  • Some trips are extremely popular and sell our more than a year in advance. I said that in my original posting, and all of the cabins with no single supplement are sold out. There are 2 or 3 cabins available for 6k or 7k per person, but that's it. You have to act fast if you possibly can when there is real value to be had.


    Have a ringside seat for nature's spectacular annual springtime show on a memorable 8-day trip including a 7-night cruise through the inland waterways of Holland and Belgium aboard a premium riverboat. Everywhere, a spot of local color... throughout your cruise in Belgium and the Netherlands... from tulips, daffodils and hyacinths abloom in flower boxes or in grand gardens... in historic windmills preserving a vanished way of life... at a chef-topped lunch in a terraced countryside castle... in gabled houses dressed in maritime lore along Amsterdam’s tree-lined canals... in Dutch paintings, Belgian chocolate and bier. Check out Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands' bulb country.  View the medieval treasures of Bruges or Ghent. Visit a World Heritage Site showcasing 19 windmills from the 18th century. Tour renowned art museums and World War II memorials. Explore Amsterdam, Maastricht, Antwerp, Brussels,  and more on one of Tauck's most popular European river cruises...  

    The date I am targeting is April 17, 2017, a Monday. It is right in the middle of Tulip Season. The pricing for this cruise will be set at the end of February, but fully refundable reservations are being taken now, with an $800 deposit required to hold your space. Pricing is expected to be similar to 2016. These cruises sell out far in advance, and some categories are already sold out. Please check out the details and the cost on Tauck's website, but here are some sample prices from 2016:

    No Single Supplement in Category 1: 2016 price $3790. Six cabins available for 2017 on April 17th departure

    Category 2: $4075 Double; $5705 Single

    Category 3: $4245 Double; $5943 Single

    Category 4: $4760 Double; $6664 Single

    This pricing includes ground transfers, most meals including premium drinks and wine, all shore excursions (which Tauck values at over $900 ), and all gratuities.

    I have been on two Tauck trips and found them to be truly wonderful experiences.

    Please give me a preliminary expression of interest by 6:00 this Wednesday. Thanks.
