With Belgian beer, chocolate, diamonds and art, Belgium has something of interest for every visitor. Check out its two largest cities, Antwerp and Brussels, on this day trip from Amsterdam, and learn about all-things Belgian from a guide. A visit to an Antwerp diamond factory and walking tours of both cities are included. See the gothic Cathedral of Our Lady in Antwerp, pose for photos by the Mannekin Pis in Brussels, and make the most of ample free time to shop for those all-important Belgian chocolates.

Highlights

  • Fully narrated tour
  • Day trip (destination A to B)
  • Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
Leave central Amsterdam, and travel across the border by coach to beautiful Antwerp, Belgium’s second largest city. Start with a visit to one of its diamond factories to learn about Antwerp’s diamond heritage, and then explore the city center on a 30-minute walking tour.

Visit Market Square, and learn about the celebrated baroque artist Pieter Paul Rubens as you walk past Rubens House — a gallery dedicated to his work. Stop for photos by the Cathedral of Our Lady, a place of worship with the accolade of Belgium’s largest gothic church, and admire the charming buildings of Antwerp as you walk around. Architectural wonders abound in the little city, and your guide will point out the most interesting sights.

After your tour, make your way back to the coach for your journey to Brussels. Get your bearings in the Belgian capital on a 45-minute walking tour, and see the Royal Palace of Belgium, the buildings of the European Commission, the Grave of the Unknown Soldier and, of course, the bronze Manneken Pis statue.

With the top sights seen, you then have over two hours of free time to explore on your own or perhaps shop for souvenirs. It’s also a good opportunity to grab lunch, or perhaps treat yourself to some of Belgium’s famous chocolate and beer. Food, drinks and any entrance fees are at your own expense.

Later, at the prearranged time, return to your coach and relax on the 2.5-hour journey to Amsterdam. Your tour finishes back at the start point in the evening.
