Bruges, Ghent, Brussels, Gouda, The Hague, Delft, Amsterdam, Utrecht

Families will love this private luxury tour of Belgium and Holland. Stay in the region’s best hotels, and enjoy activities suitable for all members of the family: riding boats along canals, touring castles, seeing art masterpieces, learning to make chocolate, visiting a cheese-making farm and more.

Begin in Bruges, a fairy-tale town of canals and medieval architecture that’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stroll through atmospheric backstreets, city gates and squares. Enjoy a boat tour along the canals. See Gothic buildings, ancient monuments and great art museums. Other options include climbing to the top of the Belfry for views over Bruges, visiting a lacemaking studio, touring a local brewery, sampling locally made chocolates and biking through lesser-visited neighborhoods.

Next, transfer to Brussels, stopping en route to tour Ghent, a charming university town, to see highlights such as the beautiful waterfront quays, landmark Belfry tower, imposing Gravensteen (Castle of the Counts) and medieval Patershol quarter.

Spend the next two nights in Brussels, the capital of Belgium. During flexible private touring, walk through the Grand-Place, the city’s iconic main square. See the renowned Manneken-Pis fountain and enjoy a chocolate-making workshop. Tour the Belgian Center for Comic-Strip Art, visit locations related to Tintin and his animated stories, or visit the Atomium and Mini-Europe. Along the way, perhaps sample Belgian specialties such as waffles, chocolate pralines and frites with mayonnaise. Artisans of Leisure can also arrange special interest activities around Brussels such as visiting museums; seeing the European Parliament; and touring a local beer brewery.

En route to Amsterdam, stop in Gouda to watch the lively cheese market (schedule permitting) and sample some of the namesake cheese. Also visit a local farm to learn to make cheese.

During private, insider-led touring in Amsterdam, enjoy a cruise through Amsterdam’s famous canals; tour world-renowned museums such as the Anne Frank House, Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum; and visit the most interesting neighborhoods to see our favorite markets, courtyard gardens, gabled houses, canals, bridges and backstreets. Also tour historic houses that evoke the Dutch Golden Age, such as Museum Van Loon, the home of a co-founder of the Dutch East India Company. Other options include visiting the Dutch Resistance Museum and other Jewish sites, touring a small local brewery, and dining on culinary treats such as rijsttafel (“rice table”), an Indonesian-influenced meal of many small dishes that’s served in specialty restaurants throughout Amsterdam.

Just outside the city, visit highlights such as Zaanse Schans, an open-air museum filled with windmills and traditional architecture. Explore the museum’s village-like atmosphere, visit a cheese shop, watch wooden clogs being made, and perhaps sample traditional Dutch baked goods.

One day, visit The Hague to see highlights such as art masterpieces, royal palaces and the Peace Palace (seat of the International Court of Justice). Also, visit the charming historic center of Delft and the Royal Dutch Delftware Manufactory (Royal Delft), with the option of a hands-on porcelain painting workshop. Alternatively, visit the miniature town of Madurodam.

Other private excursion options include visiting Utrecht, a beautiful university town to walk along the canals and tour local landmarks; touring the Castle de Haar, which has towers, a moat and expansive grounds; touring the Kroller-Muller Museum—an acclaimed art institution in the middle of a national park—and Paleis Het Loo, a 17th-century royal palace with extensive formal gardens; or visiting Edam, a former port town famous for cheese.

This tour can easily be extended to include destinations in Germany, France and other countries.
