The Low Countries of the Netherlands and Belgium embrace the North Sea which over the centuries has become a vital part of their cultural and even physical fabric. The region is home to innumerable quaint towns, golden cities, fairy-tale castles, unspoiled farmland dotted with windmills, and picturesque vistas. Fabulously historic, bursting with the cutting-edge art, both old and new, these two small countries in Northern Europe are full of unexpected riches: from the labyrinths of romantic canals in Amsterdam and in Bruge and the watery landscapes of storybook countryside carpeted with millions of flowers to the highest calibre art at celebrated museums and the imposing architecture of Brussels, as well as its creative cuisine (topped with the world's best chocolate!), the experience of getting to know this part of Europe offers unforgettable rewards of having truly experienced the Old World. 

The Masters and Artisans Tour will start in the Netherlands' capital city of Amsterdam. From our base of an upscale, boutique hotel in the city center, we'll experience both the most famous and the most unique aspects of this city. We'll take a dinner cruise in the labyrinth of the magically lit canals, visit Anne Frank's House, the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, explore Delft and Haarlem, witness a flower auction in Aslmeer and visit the world's most beautiful spring flowers garden in Keukenhof, bike through the storybook Dutch countryside and be awed by the windmills of Kinderdijk. 

The second part of the Masters and Artisans tour will take us to Belgium, where from the base of our hotel, located in the historical center of Bruges, we'll explore Brussels and Ghent, as well as exploring Bruges itself. We'll take a walking tour focusing on the Art Nouveau architecture in Brussels, tour a chocolate museum and learn about assesing the quality of chocolate (tasting included), take a romantic cruise on the peaceful canals of Bruges and explore the reflection of traditional lifestyle on the Ghent's architecture.

Wonderful tour. Lots of variety, both urban and rural. It was nice to only move hotels once. Good choice of hotels and restaurants.
Mary-Louise from Minnesota

Can't say enough about the wonderful trip.  From the hotels to the tours and the restaurants, everything was top notch and I could tell that there was a lot of thought and planning into the process. Our tour guide Kerry was fabulous, she really went above and beyond in making sure we were all well taken care of.  I will be recommending Sights and Soul and look forward to taking another trip. I have traveled with another women's travel group and Sights and Soul is by far a better company in so many ways.  Thanks for making  the trip to Holland & Belgium a memorable experience!
Kathleen from Illinois

This was a great tour. Excellent excursions were included, great guides, restaurants were fantastic. Other tour participants were friendly. We had a great time.
Tina from Massachusetts

I loved this tour! The combination of natural beauty, artistic perfection, wonderful cities and small towns was just great. Each day brought more adventures to be excited about. The hotels, especially in Bruges, were wonderful. Adored Grand Casselburg Hotel. Food was glorious. The restaurants were so well chosen, great food and atmosphere. Finally, what a great group of women were on this tour! I’ve made a bunch of new friends with whom I look forward to traveling.
Amy from Massachusetts

This tour was amazing, from the food, sights, smells and the group of people. I have wanted to see the Netherlands and Belgium for as I can remember, and this trip exceeded my expectations and will be the trip I will always remember. Marta was amazing. She brought the tour to life and has the patience of a saint!
Tiffany from Wisconsin

Everything about this trip was well planned, the hotels, the restaurants, the activities, the sights, our tour leader – all outstanding.
Cynthia from Pennsylvania

If a picture is worth a thousand words, than being there is worth a million. This was an exceptional trip. I was swept over with emotion at the beauty of the tulip fields and the flowers at the Keukenhof Gardens. The entire tour was one great experience after another, I will definitely go with Sights and Soul Travels again. Thanks again to Marta, she was a wonderful tour guide.
Beverly from Florida

The trip was Awesome! Marvelous! Fantastic---as always. The choices of activities, accommodations, and restaurants were superb.  On a scale of 10, this trip gets an 11.  Thank you and many thanks to Marta who made this trip a success.  The choreographing of schedules  is complex and Marta made it seamless and transparent and did so cheerfully.  She is a real pro at herding cats !  I can't wait for the next trip with Sights and Souls.
Connie from Oregon

You do everything upscale. I like that. From the moment you land until you take off for home. Everything is planned and everything is the best that there is.

Why travel with other women?
Many women do not have families or compatible friends who wish to travel. When going on a main-stream tour, women often find that most activities are geared towards couples and quite often they feel left out. Singles' tours are not always what women are looking for. If you do not have a traveling companion, there is also the issue of the expensive "single supplement", sometimes as much as 50 or even 100 percent of the tour cost. By going on women-only tours, women can easily avoid paying for the single supplement by sharing a room with another woman traveler.
