Your chauffeurs collect you from your Amsterdam hotel at 2.00pm for the short drive to the Savoir Faire, moored at Haarlem. Once aboard your hostess welcomes you with a champagne reception and an introduction to your crew and ship. Shortly afterwards we begin our cruise to Leiden, Holland's oldest university town, where we shall moor overnight. This evening your chef welcomes you to your table with the first of many delicious offerings. Candlelit crystal and gleaming silverware add to the romantic ambiance of what promises to be the first of many memorable occasions.


Acres of Tulips at Keukenhof Gardens.
A peaceful morning cruise past Leiden and through the oldest lock in Holland at Leidschendam. After lunch we drive to the world famous Keukenhof Gardens with the largest display of flowers in the world. Here you will see hundreds of varieties of tulips, hyacinths and other beautiful bulbous plants. Afterwards we continue our cruise into Delft.

PLEASE NOTE: after May 18 Keukenhof closes. After May 18 we visit the Peace Palace, providing no one is on trial


Hand-Made Porcelain
After breakfast we take a walking tour of the Royal Porcelain Factory, where beautiful hand painted ceramics are still made. We then take a stroll around the cobbled streets and over canal bridges in Delft, observing scenes that could have been painted by Vermeer. Afterwards we join the Savoir Faire for a cruise through the busy port of Rotterdam and onto Gouda.


Gorgeous Stained Glass Windows in Medieval Gouda
This morning your tour guide will escort you through the streets of medieval Gouda, where you will see the most famous of all stained glass windows in Holland. A leisurely stroll through town is a must, with its traditional bricked main square, small boutiques and famous for its cheese, pipes and candles. After lunch we cruise through charming towns to our overnight mooring at Uithoorn.


A Unique View of Amsterdam from the Water!
Before breakfast we visit Aalsmeer Flower auction today. Afterwards we begin our cruise along the winding Amstel River into Amsterdam and then through the very heart of this enchanting city where small canals and unique architecture take you back to a bygone era. You can literally reach out and touch the passers by. Leaving Amsterdam we join the mighty North Sea Canal and head west towards our overnight mooring at Zaandam. After lunch your tour guide drives you to Zaans Schans with its clog maker and working windmills. There's even the first supermarket in Holland.


Haarlem - Famous Museum of Dutch Masterpieces
Our final cruise takes us to Haarlem, a town of exceptional beauty with its main square, once used for jousting and the famous Frans Hals Museum. There will be plenty of time to enjoy this wonderful place and to shop around its many boutiques. Tonight we celebrate your company at the Captain's table with mouth watering offerings from your chef.
