Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest multicity round-trip airfare from New York City to Amsterdam and Paris starts from $644 in late-February (Aer Lingus). Add to that $454 per person with taxes for three nights at the Best Western Apollo Museumhotel Amsterdam, and $703 per person with taxes for three nights at the Timhotel Boulevard Berthier, and you're spending $1,801 on airfare and accommodation alone. For $482 less, this package gives you airfare, six nights' accommodation in two European cities, flights between them, daily breakfast, and all taxes and fees.
More While in Amsterdam, treat yourself to a candlelight cruise through the canals for $41 per person, tour the city by bus for $29 per person, or take a half-day guided tour—featuring stops at a cheese farm in Edam, the Zaanse Schaans heritage park, and the historic fishing villages of Marken and Volendam—for $47 per person. While in Paris, absorb some local culture at the famous Paradis Latin cabaret show for $115 per person, enjoy a guided tour of the Louvre Museum for $65, or treat yourself to dinner at the Eiffel Tower followed by a cruise down the River Seine for $175 per person.
