Fly to Amsterdam, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your chosen hotel. You will then have the evening free to relax before the excitement of the following day.
After a late breakfast and a free morning, board the coach at about 1pm and transfer to Maastricht. Arriving in the mid-afternoon, you'll be free to shop and sightsee in the city, or to join our optional private river cruise. You'll find plenty to distract and interest you in the attractive shops, cafes and bars that line the pedestrianised, cobbled streets around Vrijthof Square.
In the evening, take your seat for a wonderful summer concert performance from André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra, Choir, Soloists and Special Guests. André's trademark waltzes will bring the music of 19th-century Vienna to life, and there will also be beautiful melodies from opera, musicals, film and well-known classical compositions.
Transfer back to the airport to board your flight home, taking with you a host of memories of a very special break to Andre Rieu's hometown.
Please note you will be asked to supply Passport / ID documentation details for each passenger at the time of booking or as soon thereafter.

At this time, exact outbound and inbound departure times have not been confirmed. Times shown are our best estimate based on current information. Final timings will be confirmed to you in your Final Travel Documents, approximately 10 days prior to departure, though we will make every effort to secure timings close to those indicated when you book.
An Airport Development Fee has been introduced at a few UK Airports. You will be required to pay this charge at the following airports prior to checking in for your flight: Durham Tees Valley and Norwich. The amount varies from airport to airport, but it is generally between £5 and £10 per person (not included in the price of your holiday). Please visit the airport's website for further information.
We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
