Fly to Amsterdam, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your chosen hotel. After arrival, you will have the evening free to relax.
After breakfast, we'll travel to central Amsterdam where you'll have the afternoon free to shop and sightsee. Visit famous sights, such as the Van Gogh Museum, the Royal Palace and the renowned Rijksmuseum, or perhaps enjoy our private afternoon cheese and wine cruise.
In the late afternoon, our coach will return you to the hotel.
Enjoy some free time in the morning and a late breakfast. At about 1pm we'll depart for beautiful, historic Maastricht, where you'll have time to explore, shop and sightsee. Stroll the delightful, pedestrianised cobbled streets around Vrijthof Square, relax in a cafe or bar, enjoy a meal in one of the many restaurants, or perhaps join our private afternoon river cruise.
This evening, take your seat in Vrijthof Square to see André Rieu and The Johann Strauss Orchestra, Choir, Soloists and Special Guests live in concert. Enjoy the stunning sights and sounds as the innovative showman plays waltzes, classics and music from operas, films and musicals in this beautiful, atmospheric setting.
After this not-to-be-missed experience, our coach will return you to your hotel.
Enjoy another relaxed morning, and a late breakfast, before our afternoon trip to Antwerp, the Diamond Capital of the World. You'll have time to explore the city's great market square, pretty cobbled streets and fine Gothic churches - or perhaps the magnificent railway station and Rubenshuis museum - before our coach takes you back to your hotel in the late afternoon.
Transfer back to the airport to board your flight home, taking with you a host of memories of a very special break to André Rieu's hometown.
Please note that this is an outdoor concert with no tiered seating, which will start at approximately 9pm and finish at about 11.45pm. Afterwards our coach will return you to the hotel, arriving at around 2am. It will be necessary to walk between the coach drop-off/pick-up points and the concert venue. Your show/event ticket(s) will be given to you by your Newmarket Tour Manager on the day.
