In the footsteps of your grandparents with your own private guide!

A lot of people around the world have Dutch roots.

If you also have Dutch ancestors and you know the name of the region, town or village where they were from, it is a great and often emotional experience to visit that region and discover more about your family.

I will take you into the region and if you provide names and other details I can also assist you in finding out more details about your ancestors.

We will combine your heritage trip to the roots of your family with visits to other sites and places of interest.

It is a great opportunity to learn more about your family history while still seeing some great places in the Netherlands too.

Join me on this unforgettable experience to your own roots in the Netherlands!


The itinerary depends on the information that you provide about your ancestors. Just tell me what you aleady know about the origin of your family and I will customize the tour for you.

I recommend comfortable walking shoes, appropriate weather gear and some cash for your personal expenses for this tour.

Don't forget your camera!
