The early morning light drapes itself across meandering canals, old stone bridges and vibrantly-painted building facades. As you bicycle past the flower market, with its kaleidoscopic colors and dizzying fragrances, you’ll finally understand the allure of Holland.

And when you experience the bucolic splendor, fantastic museums, incredible food and medieval abbeys where the monks still run their own breweries, you’ll realize Belgium isn’t too shabby either. Stroll through cityscapes and country roads that offer artistic wealth, innumerable monuments, historical buildings and quaint, old churches. In the evenings, relax in exclusive accommodations hand-selected for their sophisticated and luxurious ambiance.

Explore the old and new parts of beautiful Amsterdam and visit the Royal Palace, the National Monument, the Skinny Bridge, and the beautiful houses along the canals. If you feel a sudden urge to be skilled in the art of flirtation, head to the famous Red Light District where the working girls strike come-hither poses in windows and beckon to passers-by. A short train ride through picturesque landscapes and you arrive in lovely Brussels where you’ll enjoy a private guided tour of monumental square, Grand Place and the city center. In Antwerp, take a tour of some of the oldest breweries and sample wheat beers, pale lagers and golden ales. In Bruges, visit a chocolate factory and experience what Heaven must be like when you sample the mind-blowing confections on display. This trip promises moments of the most delicious kind. ...

Amsterdam's infamous Red Light District is in the very centre of the city, concentrated on two canals, Oudezijds Voorburgwal and Oudezijds Achterburgwal, and the interconnecting streets.

  • Joy L. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    Private tours were the best. Enjoyed being able to stop and see sights big groups wouldn't be able to do.

  • Tilda B. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    Our agent Enrique was phenomenal. He booked every aspect of our trip, from transportation, tour and hotel. All we had to do was show up. Best vacation!!

  • Gary C. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    My excellent experience with Kensington Tours started with Michelle Callaghan, a consultant for Ireland and UK, followed by a very friendly and knowledgeable person in KT Air, ending with our guide Paul Wilson who my whole family loved. I am lucky enough to have traveled internationally for both business and pleasure for decades, therefore I have to compare. The entire experience with Kensington, from start to finish, was a 10.

  • Elizabeth M. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    I love being able to call Kensington and tell their agents where I want to go and what I'd like to see when at my destination. All I do is pack my suitcase and from the moment my plane lands, I am taken care of and looked after. It turns a "trip" into a "vacation" as well. It's hassle free, first rate.

  • Margarette H. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    We enjoyed the trip immensely! All our tour guides did a good job. I'd like to especially call out Alexandra from Lisbon and Javier from Toledo as outstanding. Our primary drivers Jose in Lisbon and Muhammad in Morocco were also outstanding! Special appreciation for our Riad accommodations in Marrakech which was magical!

  • Noor K. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    Very well organized tour . I will recommend it to every one who wants to travel. Excellent tour.

  • Rebecca K. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    Jaclyn was the best!!! I have already referred her to a friend! She was quick responding and really listened to what we like! Definitely will use her again!

  • Razieh M. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    Absolutely outstanding service. We loved it. Very professional staff and timely with schedules. It saved us a lot of time and we got to see a lot more than we would have done had we done this all by ourselves.

  • Ann P. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    Great vacation. People in Iceland are wonderful, cordial, friendly.

  • Santanu D. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    Your tours are not inexpensive but worth every penny of the extra cost. You do your homework and the guides are superb. Your service during the trip is personal and responsive. I have seen this in three continents.
