Western Europe’s big cities have their own special allure. Amsterdam is transforming itself, repurposing the old buildings that line its famed canals into intriguing new streetscapes. Reserved Brussels becomes a nexus of quirky chic at night. And Paris is, as always, Paris: the most romantic city on Earth. The capitals of the Netherlands, Belgium, and France are ideal for those who prefer to savor their Europe slowly.

Start with a privately guided tour of picturesque Amsterdam that passes its stately mansions, historic bridges, and colorful flower markets. In Rotterdam, visit the quintessentially Dutch borough of Delfshaven and the historic city center of Delft, then tour the monuments of The Hague. Later in Brussels, take in the Grand-Place, Royal Palace, and other landmarks before a tranquil guided walking tour of medieval Bruges. Finally, take a private half-day walking tour of Paris with a knowledgeable guide before heading to the Palace of Versailles, Louis XIV’s sprawling royal chateau, symbolic of both the extravagance of the ancien régime and the revolution that overthrew it.

Kensington Tours creates private trips from the world’s finest ingredients. Tailor-made with care by your personal Destination Expert, your personalized trip is always a one-of-a-kind experience made just for you. Expert local guidance and 24/7 service come standard. ... Show More »
