traveller reviews

  • Our trip was fun and very interesting. The barge and food especially far exceeded out expectations. J. Mason. Wagstaffe, NSW. Australia.
Experience the great cities of Holland and western Belgium on this classic barge and bike trip between Amsterdam and Bruges. Enroute visit Antwerp and Ghent whose historic centres will enchant you with their history and refined culture. Wind your way by bike along the Vecht river with its impressive mansions and country houses, visit a cheese farm and the 19 windmills in Kinderdijk. Via Dordrecht and the Kreekrak lock, the barge cruises through the 'delta' province of Zeeland to Belgium. Cycling with the group and guide or on your own with a set of maps and directions - the choice is yours. In the evenings, relax on board your comfortable barge or explore the towns on foot.
