I really appreciated the personalization as to our itinerary and all the information specific to my family that Jaap provided during my custom ancestry tour. Jaap even was able to make contact with the church caretaker in one of the small villages in order to get us access to visit the church. Jaap also prepared several documents for me with more information as to my family history. Thank you Jaap for a wonderful day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words, Theresa!

Fabulous experience! Jaap's research of our grandfather's history was well beyond of what we expected. Jaap emailed information ahead of time to help us understand who was who in our family history and what motivated many of them to embark on a new life in America. We toured various villages and we enjoyed a wonderful lunch in the town were our grandparents met. Without Jaap's tour we would have missed this unforgettable experience and treasure trove of family history. Highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mike and Evan. I loved researching Mike's interesting ancestry and learned a lot from that myself. And it was wonderful to tour with you. Hope we'll meet again some day.

The tour that Jaap created for us was absolutely perfect. His ability to research ancestral roots uncovered things our family did not even know about. He then created a tour that included incredible experiences linked to the important milestones in our family history. I sincerely appreciate the work that Jaap put into the planning of the tour. It was the best experience I have ever had. We would highly recommend Jaap for your Friesland experience!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words Graham. It was an honor for me to guide you through your rich and interesting Frisian family history.

Knowledgeable, informative and personable guide made the tour a most enjoyable experience. Introducing us to the local Oranjekoek was a treat.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Stanley, thank you for five stars. It was a great pleasure to guide you and your wife and son. And it was great to find out that the Witte Kat is still alive ....
