Amsterdam & Brussels Bound 2023

Amsterdam & Brussels Bound 2023



We’ve fallen in love with this dynamic cruise through The Netherlands and Belgium, you will too. Get around town like a local with a variety of bike tours. Experience Amsterdam’s famously gezellig cityscape—a Dutch quality that roughly translates as “cozy.” Discover futuristic architecture in Rotterdam, walk along Middelburg’s majestic harbor and sightsee with local students in Ghent. Brussels delivers a historic, yet hip vibe, and of course, the best chocolate.
