Itinerary

What To Do On Your Holland Vacation

Day trips and Sightseeing: Holland (or correctly: “The Netherlands”) is a great little country that offers picturesque towns, superb museums, beautiful canals, windmills, excellent bicycling and exuberant flower exhibits. Will there be enough to do for 2 weeks? You bet. You’d need more time than this just to visit all the major museums. Besides, Belgium is not far either. Cities include: Amsterdam, Delft, The Hague, Rotterdam, Haarlem, Utrecht, Gouda. There is surely no single place in Europe with more world-class museums per square mile than Holland: Leiden alone has 12 museums, including the National Antiquities and Ethnology Museums; Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Kröller-Müller Museum, Porcelain Factory in Delft, Mauritshuis in The Hague, Boymans-Van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam. Visits to the Keukenhof in Lisse, or the Aalsmeer Flower Auction will put flower lovers into seventh heaven. The windmills that everyone thinks of when they think of Holland are close by: Molenmuseum “De Valk” in Leiden, and The Kinderdijk between Rotterdam and Dordrecht. Even brief ventures into Belgium: Brugges (3 hours) and Brussels (2.5 hours) are possible.

Off-the-beaten-track treasures that can’t be beat: Try a walking tour of Amsterdam and a tour of seventeenth-century Dutch Masters on display at the Rijksmuseum, both led by our staff person Marike, who is a knowledgeable museum guide, or attend a concert at the world-famous Royal Concertgebouw. Visit the Aalsmer Flower Auction. Even the humble pleasures of buying fresh bread and pastries at the bakery down the street or shopping for bread, cheese, spices, fish or flowers at Leiden’s open-air market are unforgettable on a Dutch Untour.

We loved everything about Umbria! It was nice to be in a location with other Untourists as it gave us social opportunities in the evening. Umbria has many special discoveries like the Piano Grande with its wildflowers

The food everywhere in Umbria was wonderful. Our favorite towns were Trevi where we had cappuccino in the square every morning and wonderful streets to wander, Spello with its flowers on every doorstep and in every window, Bevagna and Gubbio which had colorful banners hanging everywhere as well as beautiful flowers

We were met by Connie from Untours at the Zurich airport, and she accompanied us on the train to Spiez and filled us in on everything we needed to know. We were 4 blocks downhill to gorgeous Lake Thun with its ferries that provided access to all of the villages along its shores and to the wanderwegs that led to the breathtaking surrounding mountains. The views were incredible and the people were consistently warm and welcoming, The Dreambook's descriptions were a dream come true.
