Tailor made tours surrounding your forefathers

Do you have Dutch ancestors and would you like to learn more about your heritage?

I offer a special tailor-made excursion based on information you provide regarding your Dutch forefathers. I will plan a trip to their birthplaces or other significant locations and combine it with landmarks typical of that specific region. I will do basic research using various available online regional and historical databases to create a basic picture of your ancestors. To find out what their lives might have looked like, what they would have eaten, the sort of clothes they would have worn, the church they attended and look for any traces that are still visible in modern day Holland.

I will plan the trip according to your wishes. I can complement any trip with typical Dutch scenery like a trip to a windmill, flower fields, a visit to a historical town or a museum.

Please make your booking well in advance for an optimal result.

I completed courses in geneolagy and I will do a proper research.


An itinaray will be customized in accordance with the results of research and your personal interest.
I aim to mix a heritage tour with typical Dutch features like windmills and neat villages.
