Western Front Explorer Cruise Review

“I absolutely love the Keukenhof Gardens – I’ve been multiple times and they never fail to impress – I’m so glad they’re included. On the last day too, so I got to take those lovely pictures STRAIGHT back to my family. Literally. This holiday was everything you’d expect from APT; a well-paced itinerary with lots of excursions.”

Lucy Clarke, London
