Day 1: Channel Islands to Amsterdam

Jersey clients will meet their Bontour Tour Manager at Jersey Airport (departure 07:05 with British Airways) and Guernsey clients will join with the whole group at Gatwick Airport (depart Guernsey 07:00 with Aurigny).

Our British Airways flight to Amsterdam will depart from Gatwick North Terminal at 11:00. On arrival at Schipol Airport at 13:25 we will be met by private coach for our 30 minute transfer to the 4* Movenpick Hotel Amsterdam City

After check-in we will have time to relax after our early start and long journey and settle in to the hotel and local area before we enjoy a welcome dinner together as a group in a nearby restaurant.

Day 2: Amsterdam

We’ll fuel up for a long and exciting day ahead with breakfast at our hotel, before first embarking on a guided tour of the Netherlands capital. Led by our English speaking guide, we will explore on foot and by coach, visiting the highlights of this atmospheric and welcoming City. We will hear how Amsterdam has evolved from a humble fishing village into the vibrant and eclectic destination it is today, and see many of the City’s most famous landmarks including Dam Square and the colourful flower markets.

Amsterdam

After our tour we will enjoy the rest of the day at leisure. Perhaps take the opportunity to visit one of the world-famous museums or art galleries that Amsterdam is speckled with, including the Van Gogh Museum, or The Anne Frank House. Our guides will be happy to make suggestions and provide further information if required. Alternatively you may wish to hire a bicycle and explore Amsterdam like a local, or simply sit back and watch the world go by over a coffee and a stroopwafel.

If you are interested in visiting a specific museum or gallery in Amsterdam, in particular Anne Frank House, please let us know at the time of booking as advance reservations may be required. Our customer services team will be able to assist with this.


Optional Canal Dinner Cruise: £88 per person

Setting sail at 20:00 enjoy a sumptuous 4 course dinner and unlimited drinks (wine, beer and soft drinks) as you glide smoothly along some of Amsterdam’s most scenic canals, and witness the sparkling lights of the city after dark.


Day 3: Keukenhof Flower Garden & Utrecht

Following breakfast at the hotel we will check out and make forth by coach for our next destination. Departing at 09:00 we will take a journey of around an hour to Keukenhof, also known as the Garden of Europe. Open for just 8 weeks each spring, the garden attracts visitors from across the globe to witness the lovingly tended carpets of rainbow coloured spring flowers. Over 7 million flower bulbs are planted each year across a variety of gardens, creating a treat for the senses like no other. Our visit in early April is the ideal time for seeing the tulips Holland is famed for at their peak.

Keukenhof Flower Garden

Having tiptoed through the tulips to our heart's content, we will have time for lunch, before the journey of around an hour onward to the quaint and quirky city of Utrecht, 4th largest in Holland. On arrival we will check into the 4* Park Plaza Utrecht before embarking on a short walking tour of the city with our English speaking guide, taking in the tree-lined canals and iconic 15th century Domtoren, from which the medieval part of the city radiates out. The brave among us will have opportunity to return and ascend this 112m tower tomorrow, should we wish to!

Dinner this evening is at leisure, a chance to enjoy one of many local canal-side restaurants, or simply relax in the hotel and order room service.

Day 4: Castle de Haar & Utrecht

This morning we will enjoy breakfast in our hotel before being collected by coach for a 30 minute drive to the real life fairy-tale De Haar Castle and its landscaped gardens. The largest and best known castle in Holland, De Haar dates only from the early 20th century but was designed in a luxurious medieval style, and in the 1960s was quite the place to be, receiving visitors such as Brigitte Bardot, Coco Chanel and Roger Moore.

Castle de Haar

The surrounding gardens are just as impressive as the castle itself, and invite visitors to stroll for miles over bridges, around ponds, to romantic viewpoints and through blooming borders and meadows planted with flora of all varieties, colours and scents. We will enjoy a 45 minute guided tour of the castle interior before spending some free time exploring the gardens.

On our return to Utrecht we will have lunch together before embarking, with our Tour Manager, on a pleasant 1 hour canal cruise of the city. Take in the architecture and atmosphere from a different angle as we slip serenely along the water.

The balance of the day and dinner are at leisure.

Day 5: Utrecht to the Channel Islands

Today we will wish a fond Vaarwel to Holland and depart for home. A private coach will whisk us from the hotel back to Schipol Airport ahead of our 13:50 departure to London Gatwick, arriving at 14:10 local time.

Guernsey clients will be required to collect their luggage and proceed to Aurigny check-in ahead of a 16:25 onward departure. Jersey clients will remain with our Tour Manager and proceed to our onward British Airways departure at 15:50.
