2022 Tour Details View 2021 Tour Details »

Tiptoe through the tulips, tread through famous battlegrounds, and sprint to the irresistible bonbons on this aromatic tour. Three nights in Amsterdam, two nights each in Luxembourg and Brussels, plus one night in the medieval town of Bruges is the perfect introduction to the sights and delights of the Benelux countries. Early springtime departures include the exploding color of Holland’s famous bulb fields and the extraordinary Keukenhof Gardens while late spring time, summer and fall departures give you the chance to visit Floriade, the international garden show that takes place only every 10 years. With intricate canals flowing as freely as the lager from lively Amsterdam to perfectly preserved Bruges, get ready to float up to some of Europe’s most impressive museums, markets, palaces, cathedrals—and confectionaries!

 Tour Director

With GLOBUS, there’s no better way to get to know your destination than through the eyes of a Tour Director. We’d like you to meet one of our Tour Directors, who average over a decade of experience and are representative of the type of expert that will be with you on your vacation.

EARL SHANNON

Escorting tours for more than 15 years

After many years of studying history then tourism, plus combining that with my love of travelling and exploring, becoming a Tour Director was an essential part of my DNA. For me having a part in assisting guests to enjoy the diversity, extraordinary beauty and the unique culture that Europe has to offer is unbelievably satisfying. I am constantly told by my guests that "You love being a Tour Director don't you Earl?", to which I simply reply, "Is it that obvious?"
