Valkenburg & Three Countries Tour

Medieval Valkenburg is a hidden treasure of Holland. With a ruined castle, ancient houses, water mills dotted along the river and a pedestrianised main square, it is easy to picture a bygone era of medieval life, and it is from here that we are based for our fantastic packaged tour of Southern Holland and its neighbouring countries. With themed dinners, wine tasting, a cruise and a steam train journey to name just a few of our many inclusions, Valkenburg may not be such a best-kept secret for much longer…
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Three Countries Tour
Today we board our coach for a full day step-on Three Countries guided tour. We start by driving through South Limburg towards the historic spa town of Aachen, in Germany. We then head for Vaals, South Eastern Holland, where we visit the Drielandenpunt, the highest point in the Netherlands from where we can see the borders of Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands! After free time here for lunch, we drive through Belgium and visit the Netherlands American Cemetery at Margraten and enjoy a walking tour. We then head back to Valkenburg and enjoy a Three Countries themed dinner at our hotel.



Day 3 Steam Train & Mondo Verde World Gardens
Today we board the Zuid-Limburgse steam train for a wonderful journey from Simpelveld to Valkenburg, travelling through the beautiful countryside of Limburg. Our next visit is to Mondo Verde World Gardens where we will enjoy a light lunch before exploring the different gardens and buildings from around the world, including Japanese and Chinese gardens, a Tuscan style villa, an American cactus desert and the famous Roman Trevi fountain.



Day 4 Maastricht
After breakfast, we travel the short distance to Maastricht, one of the oldest cities in Holland. We embark upon a 2 hour boat trip through the historical harbour of Maastricht before exploring the city at our leisure. We then board our coach for the short trip to Apostelhoeve where we enjoy a tour of the vineyard and wine tasting.



Day 5 Departure
After breakfast, we begin our journey home.
