Day One: Fly from the UK
Fly to Amsterdam, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your chosen hotel. You will then have the evening free to relax before the excitement of the following day.
Day Two: Included Maastricht coach trip and concert
After a late breakfast and a free morning, board the coach at about 1pm and transfer to Maastricht. Arriving in the mid-afternoon, you'll be free to shop and sightsee in the city, or to join our optional private river cruise. You'll find plenty to distract and interest you in the attractive shops, cafes and bars that line the pedestrianised, cobbled streets around Vrijthof Square.
In the evening, take your seat for a wonderful summer concert performance from André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra, Choir, Soloists and Special Guests. André's trademark waltzes will bring the music of 19th-century Vienna to life, and there will also be beautiful melodies from opera, musicals, film and well-known classical compositions.
Day Three: Fly back to the UK
Transfer back to the airport to board your flight home, taking with you a host of memories of a very special break to Andre Rieu's hometown.
You will be staying in a good-quality, four-star-standard hotel in the Eindhoven area of the Netherlands. All the hotels used will have good bars and restaurants, and the hotel bedrooms will have private facilities, trouser presses and hairdryers.
N.B. Some of the hotels we use have not been officially star-rated, but have been assessed by us as the equivalent of a four-star-standard hotel.
Hotel transfer times
The transfer time from Amsterdam airport to your hotel is approximately 90 minutes.
Please note that this is an outdoor concert with no tiered seating, which will start at approximately 9pm and finish at about 11.45pm.

Airport development fees
An Airport Development Fee has been introduced at a few UK Airports. You will be required to pay this charge at the following airports prior to checking in for your flight: Durham Tees Valley and Norwich. The amount varies from airport to airport, but it is generally between £5 and £10 per person (not included in the price of your holiday). Please visit the airport's website for further information.

Combining hotel transfers
We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
