Is this luxury or adventure travel?

3 Aug 2017


Our Boat-Bike Tour from Bruges to Amsterdam on July 16-23, 2017 aboard the Magnifique II exceeded our expectations for relaxed active travel, organized, capably-staffed with kilos of two-wheeled bike touring fun. We enjoyed the companionship of three-dozen international travelers with different experience levels and interests, which made for interesting meal-time conversations. Bikes were serviceable Dutch masters and more comfortable than anticipated. We often opted for self-guided day-rides with increasing confidence in the “knooppunt” node system. There was ample time to complete each day’s itinerary and always an option to stay on the boat. The accommodations on the boat (barge?) are first-rate from staterooms to amenities to meals, including a sundeck, on-board hot-tub, wifi, A/C, and three-course dinners. For those who appreciate details- the wifi worked most reliably in the staterooms, and the temperature of the A/C was controlled by the Captain. The small number of staff worked with grace and good humor. They were generally easy-going, affable, happy to help, and fun to interact with. Thanks to Hester, Marnick, , Sylvia, Jolien, Leroy and Captain Paul for your cheerful hospitality and friendly encouragement to relax and enjoy our experiences in Belgium and Netherlands.
