Leiden is an ancient and impressive historical city (city rights since 1266) full of charm and character. Perfect for those who like to cycle, or simply stroll the banks of the pretty tree lined canals. It is here in Leiden (St Peter’s church) where the pilgrims departed for America.

Other highlights include many great buildings such as late Gothic masterpiece St. Bavo’s Cathedral on the main square, graced by the fact that both Handel and Mozart played the magnificent Muller organ there. Come face to face with the 13th century town hall, the magnificent Butchers’ hall (Vleeshal) built by Lieven de Key and the Fish auction hall (Vishal) and dream back in time. Or experience the atmosphere of the many historic courts. You will have some free time visiting a fine selection of boutique shops.

  • Day 5

    Thursday - cruise from Haarlem to Zaanse Schans

    Our morning cruise takes us north up the Spaarne river and North Sea Canal to the region of Zaandam with its traditional Dutch green ‘dollhouse’ architecture. In the afternoon we tour Zaanse Schans, an open air conservation area and museum, giving you a vivid impression of the Dutch way of life in the 17th and 18th centuries. This historical area consists of authentic houses and windmills, an historic shipyard, pewter factory, a cheese and dairy farm and an age-old grocery store dating back to the 1900‘s. In Zaanse Schans you can visit 6 working windmills, a clog maker and a cheese maker and mustard mill – everything that the Dutch are famous for can be encountered here in this tiny village. A real treat and an absolute must for anyone traveling to Holland. Zaanse Schans is one of Holland’s top tourist. We shall continue our authentic Dutch voyage with a short drive to Volendam – and visit this old world-famous traditional fishing village, where one can admire the original atmosphere retaining its wooden houses and soak up the past traditional folk costumes casually worn by the locals in the maze of narrow streets, wooden houses and little canals. A blast from the past!

  • Day 6

    Friday - cruise from Zaanse Schans to Alkmaar

    In the morning we leave the windmills behind and sail through a picturesque rural area on the Zaan river all the way to our destination for today - Alkmaar, also called the City of Cheese. Its weigh house was the first in the country and it is here that the weighing and trading of cheese used to take place. Near the weigh house many outdoor cafés can be found. Like Amsterdam Alkmaar houses a great many 'hofjes' or almshouses: typical 17th century enclosed courtyards with little houses inhabited by single women and usually supported by the church. A little less than 400 heritage sites, canals and the harbour dominate the townscape. The historic centre, surrounded by moats and canals, still maintains its Old World character with many fine buildings from 15th through the 18th centuries remaining in use today. Alkmaar played a pivotal role in the Dutch struggle for independence when the town defeated the Spaniards in 1573 by opening the locks and flooding the surrounding area. This marked the beginning of the end of Spanish domination in the Low Countries. Today’s afternoon excursion will be completed with a short drive to a nearby historic port of Hoorn - a town and a former Dutch East India Company base in the Dutch province of North Holland. It lies on the IJsselmeer, a lake north of Amsterdam. Shops and cafes dot its 17th-century town center, which is anchored by the Roode Steen, the main square surrounded by a collection of monuments. The train ethusiasts can enjoy the historic steam train journey.The harbor features the Hoofdtoren, a 16th-century tower built for defensive purposes. Museums include the Westfries Museum, displaying the richness and paintings of the Westfrisian Golden Age.

  • Day 7

    Saturday - Alkmaar

    Today we will be sadly saying our farewell and after your last wonderful breakfast on board you will then be driven to the designated drop off point (airport or the hotel of your choice).
