Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • Arriving at Amsterdam Schiphol airport today, you will be met by your driver for the half hour private transfer to your hotel. Depending on your time of arrival, you may wish to start exploring the city. We recommend exploring on foot, immersing yourself in the diverse and multifaceted city with its canal-threaded landscape.

  • This morning is yours to spend as you wish, before an afternoon exploring the stylish Jordaan district with a local private guide, either by bike or on foot. You’ll discover the postcard-worthy Nine Streets area, manicured courtyards and brick canal houses, and venture onto the Houseboat Museum, gathering insight into the local life of the city.

  • Leave Amsterdam and drive through the lowland countryside to Keukenhof Gardens where you’re free to wander the neatly manicured gardens, brimming with around seven million tulips, pungent hyacinths and daffodils. The tulip has come to be a loved symbol of The Netherlands, and the sleek flower is flaunted throughout the fields in true kaleidoscopic style. When you’ve finished here you’ll continue southwards to The Hague.

  • Your first stop is in the city of Delft, whose well-preserved medieval old town and rich history provide many notable sites and quaint vistas to delve into. We’d recommend a spot of lunch in one of the city’s lively streets or various market squares. Next you’ll visit the well-known Royal Delft factory for a private tour, followed by a hands-on workshop.

  • Depart The Hague and drive southwards, crossing into Belgium and on to Antwerp, where the city’s historic charm, modern downtown and large port blend seamlessly. You have free time here to wander where artists such as Rubens and Van Dyck once lived, taste signature local dishes or enjoy a boat ride on the Scheldt River. Following Antwerp, you’ll continue driving southwards to the lesser-known but worthwhile Liège.

  • You’ll be collected by your local guide for a private walking tour of Liège’s highlights, including the city’s opera house, Butcher’s Hall, Curtius House and the Cathedrale Saint Paul. While best known as a former industrial giant, Liège has a small but active historic district that mixes architecture and museums with a sense of everyday life. The afternoon is yours to meander the city or nearby areas such as Huy, Chateau de Modave, or Vervier.

  • Leave Liège and spend today exploring the battle sites, museums and memorials related to the Battle of the Bulge, the last major German offensive in World War II. If you have any personal connection to the battle, let your specialist know in advance. We can attempt to tailor the tour to the relevant memorials and sites in the area. You’ll end your day by arriving in Luxembourg and settling into your city hotel for the evening.

  • Venture out to the Mullerthal Trail for a private hike through ‘Little Switzerland’. Made up of over 200-million-year-old rocks, caves and waterfalls, you’ll meander on trails through the national park’s lush and craggy forest, passing through caves and the tri-forked Schiessentümpel waterfall. After some lunch you'll visit Luxembourg’s ornate Vianden Castle for a shared guided tour within its Romanesque walls and Gothic trimmings, before returning to the city.

  • You may have some time to spend in Luxembourg City this morning, depending on the time of your homeward flight. You’ll then drive to Luxembourg airport where you return your hire car and board your onward flight.
