Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip multicity airfare from New York City to Brussels and Amsterdam starts from $752 in January (Aer Lingus). Add to that $635 per person, including taxes, for three nights at the Crowne Plaza Brussels, and $596 per person, including taxes, for three nights at the Rembrandt Residence Hotel, and you're spending $1,983 for air and accommodation alone. For $699 less, this package gives you airfare, 6 nights accommodations in two cities, standard rail between them, breakfast daily, and all taxes and fees.

More Options include a half-day city bus tour of Brussels—complete with stops at the Grand Palace, St. Michael's Cathedral, and the Royal Palace, among other popular sites—for $34 per person; full-day tours of the medieval city of Ghent and Bruges, the "Venice of the North," for $59 per person; a tour of Amsterdam by bus and boat for $34 per person; or a half-day windmill appreciation tour through the Dutch countryside, with stops at Zaanse Schaans heritage park, the old fishing villages of Volendam and Marken, and a tour of a cheese farm in Edam from $44 per person.
