This private luxury tour of Belgium and Holland is the perfect introduction to the best of both countries. It features private cultural touring, historic towns, masterpieces of art and architecture, great food and beer, and accommodation at the top hotels.

Begin in Brussels, the capital of Belgium. During flexible private touring, walk through the Grand-Place, the city’s iconic main square, to see the ornate facades of the Town Hall and guild houses. Explore elegant backstreets to see Art Nouveau architecture, and tour the Horta Museum, an Art Nouveau masterpiece and UNESCO World Heritage Site. See the renowned Manneken-Pis fountain. Visit museums such as the Royal Museum of Fine Arts, or browse antiques districts and open-air markets. See the European Parliament and other institutions related to the European Union. Artisans of Leisure can also arrange special interest activities around Brussels such as attending a performance at the Bozar or one of the royal theaters, a Belgian beer tasting or tour of a local brewery, visiting locations related to Tintin and his animated stories, seeing the Chinese Pavilion and Japanese Tower, visiting the Atomium and Mini-Europe, or touring the Van Buuren Museum. If desired, also browse gourmet food markets, and perhaps sample Belgian specialties such as waffles, chocolate pralines and frites with mayonnaise.

Enjoy a private day tour to Bruges, a fairy-tale town of canals and medieval architecture that’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During private touring, stroll through atmospheric backstreets, city gates and squares. Enjoy a boat tour along the canals. See Gothic buildings, ancient monuments, and museums such as the Groeningemuseum of fine art and the Hospital Museum, which has a collection of Hans Memling paintings. 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, visiting the Basilica of the Holy Blood, biking through lesser-visited neighborhoods, and seeing the historic Beguinage housing, also a UNESCO site. If time permits, also stop in nearby Ghent to see highlights of the city.

Next, transfer to Amsterdam, stopping en route to tour The Hague and Delft or Antwerp and Rotterdam.

During private, insider-led touring in Amsterdam, enjoy a private cruise through Amsterdam’s famous canals; tour world-renowned museums such as the Rijksmuseum, Anne Frank House 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, seeing interesting contemporary architecture, shopping for antiques, 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.

One day, visit the early morning Aalsmeer flower auction to watch the bustling activity on the market floor as beautiful flowers are prepared to be shipped all over the world. Also 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. If your timing is right, we can also arrange a visit to the beautiful gardens of the Keukenhof (mid-March to mid-May) to stroll among thousands of colorful tulips, hyacinths and other flowers.

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