Valkenburg, Amsterdam & the Rhine & Moselle Valleys

What our previous travellers have to say about this tour

"Leger are such a fantastic company and I will continue to travel with them for many years"


John Taplin


John has been travelling with Leger for almost a decade, during which time he has visited destinations including Spain, Austria, Italy and most recently, Holland. Attending services at his local Cathedral is a massive part of John’s life and it was a meeting with the Canon Precentor at Wakefield Cathedral that inspired his interest in Aachen Cathedral and the most recent Leger holiday that he joined…

I joined this holiday as it looked extremely interesting in the brochure. Following a conversation with a member of the clergy at the Cathedral, my interest in visiting the Cathedral in Aachen grew to the point where I just had to make a visit. As I have travelled with Leger so many times and as their tour programme is so varied, I was certain that I would be able to find a tour which would allow me to visit Aachen and the Cathedral, as well as enjoy a Leger holiday. Valkenburg, Aachen and the Rhine Valley was the perfect choice for me, as not only did it allow me to make my visit, but it also gave me the chance to see some new places, as well as to re-visit Amsterdam.

The tour itinerary involved visits to some great places. Although I had visited Amsterdam before, it was nice to go back, join the canal cruise and see the sights. In Valkenburg, we made time to visit the castle, which was magnificent. I would certainly recommend a visit to the castle to anyone who was thinking about spending time in Valkenburg.
We always travel by Silver Service, as the coaches are so comfortable and the drivers are always friendly. Our drivers were Rob and Glynn and as I have travelled with Rob before, it was really nice to see a familiar face. They looked after us very well and made sure that everyone had a great holiday.

The De Bogaerde Hotel was very comfortable and the staff were very friendly. It is well located so we were able to walk into town on an evening.

Although I enjoyed the whole holiday, the highlight of the tour for me was definitely my visit to the Cathedral in Aachen. It far exceeded my expectations and I am so pleased that I was able to travel with Leger to fulfil my ambition. Leger are such a fantastic company and I will continue to travel with them for many years. In fact, I will be going to Spain again later in the year with them and I cannot wait.


"The highlight of this trip was the pretty little town of Monschau in the district of Aachen, a truly charming town."

Having been recommended to Leger by friends in 2012, we are hooked on their tours. We tried a short tour first for 4 days to Rouen and the seaside towns of Normandy just to get the feel of it, and we loved it. Since then we have taken more tours and have the Highlights of Eastern Europe coming up in the summer, visiting Germany, Poland, Hungary, Austria and Prague, and the Christmas markets of Salzburg, Munich and Innsbruck in the winter. We did this tour in 2013 we loved it and wanted to go again this year.

Having recently returned from your Valkenburg, Amsterdam and the Rhine Valley tour we must say it was worth it (as always). We stayed in the Hotel De Bogaerde in Valkenburg which had excellent food and facilities and was situated in the middle of the town among some beautiful scenery. 

In Amsterdam we went on the optional Canal Cruise excursion,  finishing up at a Diamond Factory (one for the ladies!). The highlight of this trip was the pretty little town of Monschau in the district of Aachen, a truly charming town with its cobbled streets, wooden beamed houses, all multi-coloured and some crooked set amongst a canal and stunning scenery. It took you back in time. I took over 50 photographs we were so overwhelmed.

We mixed well with the others on our coach as we always do and we had a great laugh on the way. Linda and Jeff, our drivers, were superb! They were friendly, informative and expert drivers, and deserve a mention. The coach was spotless and comfortable, with drinks and snacks available when needed. What more could you want?

We will continue to travel with Leger in the future. With so many tours to choose from we haven't decided what to book for 2016! All the tours are excellent ! 

We look forward to travelling with Leger again very soon.
