Tauck Exclusive – Private Opening at Mauritshuis

Exclusive evening with dinner, music and Golden Age art at the Mauritshuis

You’re the guest of honor for a Tauck Exclusive private opening, tour and dinner at the acclaimed Mauritshuis museum in Den Haag (The Hague). The museum is housed in a restored, classically styled 17th-century mansion where a world class collection of Dutch Golden Age paintings features masterpieces by Rembrandt, Holbein the Younger and Vermeer, including Vermeer's iconic "Girl with a Pearl Earring." Enjoy a personal welcome from a museum official who shares insights about the art you will see here and dine to live music performed by students from the Royal Conservatory of the Hague.

Visit beautiful Keukenhof Gardens

Spring is definitely in the air at the Netherlands' Keukenhof Gardens

It’s only open to the public two months a year... but during those two months in spring, Keukenhof Gardens in the Dutch town of Lisse puts on an annual show that can best be described in visions. Just picture tulips, multicolored and in the millions; daffodils, golden-hued with beauty unmatched; hyacinths, pink, purple and white perfumed and pretty; and narcissi, cupshaped and showy, all flowering simultaneously as far as your eyes can see. It's a show you won't want to miss.

Had to tell you how fabulous our cruise was! The crew and Tauck staff were extremely professional and acommodating.

First class as Tauck always does. The cruising staff were so nice and helpful. Our tour guides were very knowledgeable, interesting, and fun. Loved the flowers, windmills, cheese factory, brewery, the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, Brugge, & Antwerp. Fascinated by the Dutch & Belgium history & culture lessons. The classical trio on the boat - amazing.

Most Memorable Moment:

The reason we chose this trip was to see the tulips at their peak. The Keukenhof Gardens, which are only open 8 wks/yr to show off their tulips, were SPECTACULAR. The colors & varieties of flowers and the design of the beds were breathtaking. Wish we could have stayed in this paradise for more than a couple of hours!


The new growth of Spring is always an uplifting and life inspiring event. The ONLY way to improve this 'event' is to add Tulips and Chocolate and a "change of venue" to the Netherlands and Belgium. During the 8 weeks that Tulips are peaking is a truly superb time to visit this area. Belgium Chocolate "speaks for "itself".

Most Memorable Moment:

Lunch under infrared heaters and covered patio at the Clock Tower Square in Bruges was my most memorable moment, the mussels in a wine/curry/garlic "brew" were delicious!
