As Seen in The Telegraph: Dutch Tulips by Bike & Boat

Cycle through the typical Dutch countryside in spring
Cycle through the typical Dutch countryside in spring
From as early as March, you have a chance to see the tulips in Holland. Writer Andrew Eames travelled to the low lands to discover why a boat and bike tour is the best way to see the Netherlands. The article that he wrote for The Telegraph is a fantastic read and good resource on the cycling trip and via this way we wanted to share the link.
His experiences on our Tulip Tour - Deluxe trip were very positive, and in his article he contemplates on the reason behind the tulips uplifting our spirit. 
 

Prior to the morning of our own tulip fever, we’d already covered a fair bit of ground.

 

:: Read the Telegraph Travel's article 'Why a boat and bike tour is the best way to see the Netherlands' of 29 April 2018

 
The article says: "Tulip tourism is a long established phenomenon, and the issue these days is how to approach it in a new and innovative way. Which is where the luxurious Magnifique II comes in, with its hot tub on the roof, its bar, its three-course dinners, and its state-of-the-art fleet of bikes." 
The Magnifique I, II and III are deluxe barges (Category A+) offering cabins with ensuite facilities, which you will make your home on our Tulip Tour - Deluxe departures. If you choose to travel on the Tulip Tour - Comfort trip, your base will be the Fluvius barge (Category A).
