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!

A Recent Review of this tour

What a fantastic experience we had with Frank for the day! He had previously researched our family history and even pre-visited the places he intended to take us. We saw so much of South Holland and the places my dad had spent his childhood years. Frank took the time to explain things and showed us a working windmill and small dairy that was reminiscent of my dad's upbringing. Frank was very knowledgeable, warm, and a wonderful person to spend the day with! We were so pleased and would highly recommend!!
