DAY 1: Depart from home / Fly overnight to Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Depart from home for The Netherlands. The particulars of your arrival overseas are detailed with your flight itinerary.

DAY 2: Arrive in Amsterdam

Upon arrival at the Amsterdam airport, claim your luggage and clear customs. If your luggage is lost, fill in a PIR form before leaving the customs area – VBT representatives are not allowed into the customs area. (Please note: Also make certain your VBT luggage tags are affixed to your bag so your VBT representative can identify you.) After exiting customs, enter the arrival hall and look for your VBT representative, who will be holding a VBT sign and who will make arrangements for your transfer via taxi or minibus to your Amsterdam hotel (transfer time is approximately 20 minutes, depending on traffic).

Important: Transfers are provided by Schiphol Taxi, who will be looking for you and carrying a VBT signboard. You may be approached by other companies offering a transfer. Please use only Schiphol Taxi, telephone +31 654 354 601 or +31 681 299 101. Transfers provided by any other company will be at your own expense.

Please note: If you cannot find the VBT representative, or have been delayed in customs because of lost luggage or another reason, please go to the Red & White Meeting Point in the main arrival hall and wait there. You can also go to one of the yellow information desks in the main hall and ask if they will telephone Schiphol Taxi (using the number above) on your behalf.

Please note: The hotel check-in time is 3:00 pm, but they will do their best to get you to your rooms as soon as possible. After checking in, you have free time to explore Amsterdam. VBT provides you with City Information that includes recommendations on what to see and do in Amsterdam.

Try one of Amsterdam’s wonderful restaurants for dinner on your own.

Hotel: Hotel Vondel

DAY 3: Embark barge / Warm-up ride / Cruise to Vianen

VBT No-Air Package guests: You are responsible for making your own way to meet our barge. Plan to arrive between 1:00 and 1:45pm. Please note that you cannot embark before this time, as the barge is being prepared for you. If you are late, you must contact the barge as soon as possible to make alternative arrangements, as we will sail at 2:00 pm. The barge will be moored in Oosterdok, near the entrance of the NEMO museum, behind the Amsterdam Centraal train station. Please refer to the information listed in the tour handbook.

VBT Air Package and Pre-Trip Extension guests: After breakfast, make sure your luggage is packed and ready to be transported to the barge. At 9:30 am, meet one of your VBT Trip Leaders in the hotel lobby for a guided walking tour of Amsterdam, visiting many of the city’s highlights and taking some free time for lunch on your own. You will board the barge at 1:45pm and depart at 2:00 pm. At the docks, meet the barge crew and your second VBT Trip Leader, who will welcome you aboard with refreshments. Cruise out of Amsterdam on the IJ waterway, catching glimpses of houseboats and floating houses.

You will dock before dinner for our warm-up ride, which follows the river Vecht. This evening, gather with the group for a welcome dinner onboard. You moor overnight in Vianen, a small city on the river Lek.

Please note regarding Wi-Fi onboard the barge:  Each device (smartphone, laptop, etc.) receives 50 MB per day free, to be used on that day. Additional amounts can be purchased via credit card or Paypal. Ask your barge crew for details. However, due to the nature of the barge movements, internet access is not always available. As such, if stable internet access is critical to you, VBT recommends that you purchase your own bundle before traveling overseas.

DAY 4: Cycle to Kinderdijk / Cruise to Dordrecht

After breakfast, cycle along the small canals of the rural region of Krimpenerwaard. You will trace the route of the river Lek through Schoonhoven, known as the “Silver City” for its long silversmithing tradition. Continue to Kinderdijk, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where 19 of Holland’s famous windmills — some more than 260 years old — adorn the horizon. Then you can ride (or cruise, if you prefer) to Dordrecht, one of Holland’s oldest towns and birthplace of the state of The Netherlands, founded by William of Orange. Take some time to stroll through the city’s historic center to get a glimpse of its rich past. This evening, your barge captain will give a short talk and introduce the crew. Moor tonight in Dordrecht and enjoy dinner on board.

DAY 5: Cruise to Willemstad / Cycle to Tholen

This morning, enjoy a short language lesson while sailing to Willemstad, an old fortified town on the Haringvliet. There’ll be time here to explore. The massive walls were laid out in the shape of a seven pointed star, each rampart named for one the seven provinces of the Republic of United Netherlands.

Then cycle to Tholen, once an island in the middle of the large Zeeland streams where many people fished for their living. Today, it is connected to the mainland, but it remains a picturesque village with relics of an eventful past. Pedal through its quiet farmlands and pause for a picnic lunch at some historic locks before arriving in Tholen. Here you will rejoin the barge and enjoy dinner onboard.

Antwerp is known as the “Diamond City” and the native city of the painter Peter Paul Rubens. You may wish to visit the Cathedral of Our Lady and the Market Square, lined with beautiful historic townhouses. Tonight, enjoy dinner on your own in a local restaurant.

Located at the confluence of the Schelde and Leie rivers, this “City of 200 Bridges” was founded around 600 AD and boasts many beautiful buildings dating to medieval times, when the textile industry brought great wealth to Ghent’s merchants. After a leisurely lunch on board the barge, embark a local boat for an excursion into the center of Ghent with a guide. There’ll be time to explore this attractive medieval canal city on your own. Many old patrician houses have been preserved in the city center. One historic building is the 1425 Cloth Makers’ Hall, where textile merchants used to meet. The city’s major church is St. Baaf’s Cathedral, constructed and enhanced in various styles over many centuries. In the cathedral, admire a number of masterpieces of medieval painting, including Jan van Eyck’s famous “Adoration of the Lamb.” Try one of the local restaurants for dinner on your own.

DAY 9: Arrive in Bruges

During breakfast this morning, you will begin cruising to Bruges. Alternately, if you have chosen the longer ride option, you will begin your ride as your barge sets off. The barge will briefly dock farther along the waterway, at Aalter Bridge, where the day’s shorter cycling route begins. The barge rejoins the main canal and meets us all in Bruges in the late afternoon.

Regarded by many as Europe’s best-preserved medieval city, Bruges is laced by a network of canals lined by beautiful houses built by wealthy textile merchants. A 350-foot, 13th-century belfry tower, which houses Europe’s most famous carillon, presides over the city’s Market Square. You have ample time to marvel at the medieval ambiance of this lovely city and to walk its winding streets. Dine on the barge one last time this evening.

VBT provides you with City Information that includes recommendations.

Bruges was northern Europe’s leading trade center between the 13th and 15th centuries, driven largely by its thriving wool and textile industries.
