High Tea boat ride on the Vecht

Tea time!

For this boat ride, we recommend an early and light lunch. Or else a late breakfast. So that by about three o’clock you will be really hungry for a traditional English treat: High Tea, served on the Vecht.

Cruising down the river

You are aboard a beautiful salon boat. With close friends and family, cruise the river in style. The views are as beautiful as they are varied: green shores, expanses of water and classic country houses. And then, in the middle of the Vecht, your High Tea is served. Up and coming English, with the combination of sweet and savory treats. Mini brownies, mini cheesecake, sandwiches, whipped cream puffs, scones, savory muffins and fresh fruit: a table full of treats to sit back and enjoy. Of course, there are also several tea blends to choose from. Everything satisfactory like this? Is there anything else we can do? The crew is at your service.

High tea and afternoon tea

Properly considered, high tea is supper consumed, with tea, at a high table. In the afternoon, people in England serve afternoon tea, with all kinds of tasty snacks. And we call those, in turn, the High Tea. Who cares. As long as your High Tea on the Vecht is delicious.

Back and forth, or....?

Along the Vecht are numerous convenient boarding points (with parking) to begin your boat tour. For example, you can board in Maarssen, Breukelen, Loenen, Nigtevecht, Weesp and Muiden. From there you can sail back and forth for a bit, or disembark in another place. Transportation back to your departure point can be arranged for you.
For example, your boat trip on the Vecht with High Tea could look like this.

    • 2:30 p.m.
      You will board the salon boat in Vreeland. The captain will welcome you and tell you about the route to sail. Then your cruise begins.
    • 3 p.m.
      The buffet of your High Tea will be opened.
    • 4:30 p.m.
      Returning to Vreeland.
      The standard High Tea cruise lasts two hours. But if you want to cruise on the Vecht for longer, that’s possible too. We are happy to consult with you about a suitable arrangement.
