    There was so many interesting facts about the Netherlands and their "water" management over the centuries. Of course the tulips were amazing as expected. I felt rushed in Ghent, Antwerp and Bruges. We did not have enough free time to have a beer and fries, as the tour guides kept suggesting. I am not a big shopper, but it felt like you had to choose between shopping, going to the toilet or getting some local pastry or snack. It had become a hassle getting Euros in coin form for tipping the driver and the local guides. Many places don't take anything but credit cards, so there wasn't anywhere to get change for a 5 Euro or more. We were told they would take dollars, but this tour had seperate bus drivers and local guides everyday and sometimes 2 different sets in one day. This could be clarified in the documents so that people would understand that they needed a lot of one dollar bills, as the exchange places don't issue coins.

    Collette representatives were rude and made us feel unfordable. It seemed like we were a burden to them on every occasion. There also was an obvious issue between the ships crew and the Collette reps. We saw several arguments between Collette and ship employees. From the first day Collette didn’t follow the schedule that they sent us in our black book. We were in Amsterdam 2 days before departure staying in the hotel Collette arranged which was dirty and our view from the only window was a brick wall. Collette didn’t pick us up at the designated time nor made any attempt to contact us or the hotel. We were forced to take a taxi. We Explained the situation when we got on the ship to the Collette representatives and they just blew it off and they said we would be reimbursed for the cab which never happened. They never apologized or explained why we were not picked up at the time that they told us to be in the hotel lobby. We waited over an hour before asking a representative from the hotel what they suggested us to do. The hotel called the taxi. That was just the beginning of a horrible trip. Every guest I spoke to had similar feelings about Collette and their treatment of all of us. I’m sure you have received many negative responses from other customers about the trip. Several people said they would be contacting Collette expressing their mistreatment and writing letters.

I would love to do it again so I could absorb more of it. The amount of walking from the tour coaches to the destinations or back and forth to the hotel was difficult. The lines to check in and get through security at the Amsterdam airport took over 3 hours. that was a bad ending to a glorious trip.

    There were some issues with the trip (i.e., local tour guides that were hard to understand or boring; whispers not always working; long lines in trying to get through security at Amsterdam airport when departing, etc.). The most memorable part of the trip was the bus and canal tour of Amsterdam with Hank as our local tour guide.

    The tour exceeded my expectations. The food was excellent and the tour was excellent. Our tour manager and Collette Guides were excellent. There was quite a range of variability in the local guides. Our visit to Kuekenhof was too short - we needed more time there, but we were rushed to leave to take us to a cheese production site. I would have preferred much more time - we didn't have time to see everything. I would prefer that the optional tours be included and the tipping taken care of within the price. The idea of having to tip every single bus driver, tour guide and employee on the riverboat seemed a bit excessive.

    I fell within the first hour of being on the ship and broke my nose. It was taken care of by medical person on ship. Of course no knew my nose was broken. I suggest that you advise your guests in advance of the step leading into the bathroom. The floor was raised about 2 inches and I either missed the step or caught my toe on it. When I hit the floor, my face hit the shower step. I really don’t remember exactly how it happened. I would suggest being sure guests are made aware of that step.

    We covered a lot of territory in the short time of the cruise. The towns in Belgium were wonderful and we had enough free time as well as tour time. We were going for the tulips and unfortunately it was the only rainy day we had. The tulip fields were headed the day before but we still thoroughly enjoyed. the Keukenhof gardens. The windmill tour was great as was the guide. Her ancestors were millers so our tour was very personalized. The Delta City Works was also a great tour. It was very fascilnating. We were glad that we spent 2 days in Amsterdam before the cruise began. We would encourage anyone taking this tour to take advantage of a few days in Amsterdam. It was an inviting city.

    Tulip gardens and Delta Works tour were my top two - very different but hard to judge which was best.

    The 2 Collete tour managers were seldom seen. Favorite experience was the tulip gardens and Delta Dam excursion.

    Since the tour was entitled Tulip Cruise, I think there should have been more than 2 1/2 hours at the KUKENHOFF Gardens.nthe included excursions were nice, but the trip felt rushed at the end. The two highlights were both on the last day

    The whole trip.was a wonder experence. The only thing I would change is if you are leaving from California leave a day early. We got there at 10 PM and sailed the next morning.

    The trip met our expectations. It was well planned and not lacking in experiences. The local guides were well informed and friendly.

    We truly enjoyed the company of so many people on the boat. The entertainers, singers, were wonderful. The excursions were all so good. We enjoyed looking at the land with its houses, livestock, etc. as the boat went from port to port. The canal cruise in Amsterdam was very interesting.

    The trip was nice and very inclusive but a notch or two above my energy level, too much walking. the Keukendof Gardens were magnificent. On foreign trips the guides should have good English. The Collette guides were not bad but the Cruise Director on the ship was very nice but had a heavy Romanian accent that was hard to understand.

    Our tour manager was Boryana. She was good. She was competent, but as is the case with many Central Europeans, very serious, and more focused on tasks. Jane Pritchett was the Tour Manager for the other half of the 87 person tour group, and she was outstanding--personable, upbeat, very helpful, positive, kind, caring, genuine. Both did their jobs well, we just preferred Jane's style. The ship was amazing, and the staff was great. We would definitely like to ravel on that cruise line again. The tour inclusions were very good. We liked the places we visited. There was a lovely balance of walking, standing, and riding. Great daily guides, very informative. We liked the tours and then the free time to do a few things on our own. The trip was great from start to end! Collette went out of their way to make it possible for four of us to visit the Airborne Museum in Arnhem. Only one person booked and paid before the tour left the US, and Collette not only honored their commitment to take the trip with one or more people, they paid the costs for all of us to go there. My father was a pilot that dropped the paratroopers on Sept. 17 for Operation Market Garden which the museum in Arnhem commemorates. It was very important for my husband and me to get there, and we are very impressed and grateful that Collette made that possible. Thank you.

    Everything about the tour was good - last day seeing the tulips was our highlight - we love flowers.
