The tour consists of three parts:
Section A: July 13-22nd, Germany, Belgium & Holland farm tours & sites starting with the spectacular Aachen Horse Expo
Section B: July 23-30, A riverboat cruise from Amsterdam Holland to Basel Switzerland with Avalon Cruises
Section C: July 30-August 7, Overland from Basel into Austria with historic & equestrian sites ending at the Worlds Singles Driving Event
It is possible to do each of the sections separately, or combine them all for the total package.
Pricing is in Euros so the price in CDN$ or US$ is subject to the conversion rate at the time the tour is fully paid for. As Aachen draws a huge crowd, hotel accommodations are limited; hence it is important to book this tour now. The international fight from your nearest departure city to Dusseldorf (closest airport to Aachen) and your return flight from Amsterdam are not included. The price per person (Double occupancy) for Section A is €2700 (which presently equals less than US$ 3000)
Section B is the river cruise from Amsterdam to Basel and is the “non-horsey” part of the tour. These river cruises fill up early but there are still some Superior Cabins left with Avalon for these dates. Price (including taxes) per person (Double occupancy) is approximately US$ 3500 but varies with the options you choose on the boat, availability of cabins, etc.
Section C is still being developed. I expect that there will be fewer of you choosing all 3 sections, so we can perhaps tailor this itinerary to the preferences of those of you who decide to come on that Section.
For international flights, I recommend that you contact Corinne Marian at Peerless Travel Ph 1 800 294-1663 #307, or contact your own travel agent.
There are application forms & waivers to complete, and a $500 deposit is required to hold your place on the tour.
Please call or email us anytime with questions. If you like horses, you should definitely come on this “once in a lifetime” Equine Tour.
