Grand Holland Tour
VISITING: Utrecht, Volendam, Marken, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Enkhuizen – Zuiderzee Museum & Zaanse Schans, Efteling Theme Park, The Hague & Madurodam
Dates: Group 2 , 4 – 30 August
We meet at the airport at 5.00 am for our Air Malta flight departing at 7.40 am and arriving in Amsterdam at 10.50 am. We will be transferred to our 4-star hotel NH Utrecht. After check-in, we will proceed to visit Volendam. We will be able to gaze upon its real beauty while witnessing a typical fishing village that has been preserved for the past 6 centuries. We can also opt to take a boat across the lake to the island of Marken (extra – weather & time permitting). The characteristic small houses, which together with the canals and the drawbridges form the most picturesque spots, present the visitor with an atmosphere of geniality and romance.
Our first full-day optional excursion will take us to Amsterdam. We shall start with a city tour of Amsterdam, passing by many historical buildings and interesting sights such as the Royal Palace, the National Monument and the Skinny Bridge. We will later visit a windmill on the river Amstel, together with clogs and cheese factory. One can also opt for a canal cruise (extra) to enjoy this beautiful city. Then, we will have some free time for personal sightseeing and shopping.
Today, we will go on an optional full-day excursion to Rotterdam, the largest harbour in the world. Rotterdam is situated in the province of South Holland, on the banks of the rivers Waal and Nieuwe Maas. A visit to Rotterdam would not be complete without a tour of the harbour or without going up on the highest lookout tower in the Netherlands, the Euromast (extra) standing at 185 metres. The rest of the afternoon is free for some shopping or for further sightseeing in this great city.
We shall start our full-day optional excursion with Enkhuizen where we will visit the Zuiderzee museum (extra). In the afternoon we will make our way towards Zaanse Schans, an old, openair, museum-village on the bank of the River Zaan. Along with its typical windmills and houses, it clearly depicts what a typical village on the River Zaan must have looked like in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Today’s full-day optional excursion gives us the opportunity to spend a day in the oldest theme park in the world, with over 100 million visitors since its opening in 1952, the Efteling Theme Park (entrance extra). A whole day full of amusement and adventure awaits us. In the late afternoon, we shall return to our hotel.
Today’s full-day optional excursion will take us to The Hague; the political capital of the Netherlands, visiting Madurodam – ‘Miniature Holland’, which depicts many Dutch towns and villages. In the miniature park, almost every Dutch landmark has been reproduced on a miniature scale (entrance extra). In the afternoon, we will make a panoramic tour of the city, passing by the Peace Palace which houses the International Court of Justice and other historical landmarks. Time permitting, we will make another shortstop in another notable attraction.
After breakfast, we will leave the hotel and make our way to the airport for our Air Malta flight departing at 11.50 am and arriving in Malta at 2.50 pm
