Your Destinations

Start your stay in magical Amsterdam.  Since the 1st of August 2010, the Amsterdam Canal District is officially listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.  The historic urban ensemble of the canal district of Amsterdam was a project for a new ‘port city’ built at the end of the 16th and beginning of the 17th centuries. It comprises a network of canals to the west and south of the historic old town and the medieval port that encircled the old town and was accompanied by the repositioning inland of the city’s fortified boundaries, the Singelgracht.

Then head up the gorgeous Rhine and watch the land of German fairy tales role past your window with it's picturesque steep-roofed houses and cobblestone streets, rushing streams and stormy mountains.

Later, bid tot ziens (farewell) to Holland and set sail for Germany.

Cologne is one of Germany's largest cities, with a river skyline dominated by the soaring twin spires of its magnificent gothic cathedral. This afternoon, choose between an included Guided City Walk or a 'Jewish Cologne' tour. The Old Town offers up a great choice of cafés, shops and taverns so be sure to try a Kölsch in one of the many taverns and shop for a bottle of 4711, the original 'eau de cologne'.

After a walking tour with a local guide, cruise the dramatic Rhine Gorge, an incredibly beautiful stretch of river where quaint, fairytale castles stand sentry on the steep, terraced banks. Pass the legendary Lorelei Rock, where it is thought the sweet songs of sirens lured enchanted sailors to their doom. Reaching Rüdesheim, enjoy a visit to the fascinating Siegfried's Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum and free time to explore the Drosselgasse.
Day 5: Excursions to Mainz & Heidelberg (included today: Mainz guided walk and Gutenberg Museum visit, Heidelberg Castle visit + breakfast, lunch & dinner)
