Tour Itinerary

Your European river cruise through Holland and Belgium begins in the colorful capital of the Netherlands—Amsterdam. Visit the world’s largest flower garden at Keukenhof—with more than seven million bulbs, including tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths planted across 70 acres in Lisse. Next, sail to Antwerp, Belgium’s second-largest city, combining ancient buildings and monuments with modern architecture. Join a guided tour of Ghent, including a visit to St. Bavo’s Cathedral and back to Holland to visit Middelburg, Veere, and Willemstad. No trip to Holland is complete without a visit to the technical miracle that is the Delta Works, a storm flood barrier almost six miles long. Return to Amsterdam to see the most fascinating areas of the city on a canal cruise along the elegant Grachten. You’ll then continue your European vacation with a high-speed train transfer to spend 3 nights in Paris—“The City of Light.” Enjoy guided sightseeing of this iconic city, and spend another full day at your own pace to experience the wonderful cafés, museums, and legendary cityscape in the most romantic city in the world. Your Local Host® is available with recommendations and assistance in making the most of your free time in Paris—as part of your Monograms Paris vacation package. Your Tulip Time cruise and visit to Paris will bloom in your memory for many seasons to come. You’ll want to return again or add more beautiful journeys to your future travel wishes.

Health and Safety Protocols for Globus Tours

Today's world has changed, but what remains certain is Globus' commitment to guest safety, comfort and peace-of-mind while traveling with us. To that end, Globus has established a worldwide Assurance program, with enhanced on-trip protocols and procedures, to ensure the health – and happiness – of guests throughout their travels with us.

It all starts with Globus' Global Health & Safety Team, dedicated to ensuring that cleanliness of all operations exceeds today’s travel standards—from start to finish. The following areas address Globus' commitment to providing a safe and clean environment for guests.

A SAFE & WARM WELCOME

Globus will enact new tour check-in procedures and pre-trip health screenings to offer guests a safe start to their journey, including adherence to social distancing requirements.

BLENDING CULTURAL PROXIMITY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCE

Globus will ensure safe distances for guests throughout the journey, on coach and during excursions. This includes providing masks for guests use at any time where social proximity could be an issue as well as the possibility of reducing group sizes, if required. And wireless listening technology – including Globus' Go Beyond Devices in Europe – enables safe distances between guests and other travelers on excursions.

FOCUS ON GUEST AND TEAM MEMBER HEALTH

To ensure a healthy environment for team and guests, Globus will conduct regular temperature checks for both guests and team, and when necessary, masks will be worn by Globus' team members when with guests.

TOUCHING HEARTS, NOT HANDS

Traveling with Globus removes many of the “touch points” of travel, including luggage handling, check in/out, expedited entry into attractions and more. Globus are further reducing risk with hands-free service, meaning all self-services replaced by staff, including buffet meals replaced with table service. Globus will also ensure hand sanitizing is available throughout each trip, on coach and in hotels.

COMMITMENT TO CLEAN

As a part of Globus' commitment to clean, Globus is requiring enhanced cleaning procedures with hotel partners, on motorcoaches, vehicles and throughout every trip, including additional daily disinfecting procedures that go above-and-beyond already strict health and safety procedures.

PARTNERS IN DISCOVERY AND IN HEALTH

Globus has strict health and safety protocols, which have been in place for years, focused on ensuring all aspects of operation- from vehicles and equipment used on trip to excursions and hotel procedures. This process will continue with new, elevated health and safety checks, to maintain their promise that each touch-point on tours and cruises are considered in their commitment to guest and team member well-being.

We loved the tour, ship, and excursions! Staff super healthful. Still working on special diet meal plans but learned some new foods I could eat! They went out of their way every single time we needed anything. Fun filled and educational and dream of life time to see these beautiful countries in the Netherlands and Belgium. Hope we can return someday!

1. The cabin was wonderfully and thoughtfully laid out. There was enough space and space was well planned and functional.

2. The staff was friendly, pleasant and professional. They made every effort to accommodate passengers. 

Food on Avalon is marginal and don't know why. With just a little imagination could have been great.

Tulip Time Cruise, Apr 9-16, Avalon Waterways,ship Luminary, itinerary, accommodations, cuisine, all the dinner wine & beer you wished, tours & excursions, all were out of this world fantastic! Cruise Director "WAS THE TRIP"!!!!! He was a barrel of energy, interest, hard work, efficiency, information, history, economics, politics, culture, technology, & more, plus SERVICE!!!!!!!!!! Many thanks to you all for the time of our lives!
