WHAT WE DO FOR YOU
Before your journey begins it is important to research the history of the family (or families) on which you would like to focus. Based upon the information you provide (names, dates, family trees, pictures, letters, addresses), we will do further research. We rely on a big Dutch network, and also dive into the regional and local archives. What we discover is the source of the personalized tour designed just for you. We work on good faith and do not charge a research fee. If we do not have enough clues to continue drafting a program, we will let you know. If not we will decide together on a budget for further (genealogical) research.
Develop a Personalized Tour
We put all the names, dates, places, pictures, maps and stories together and use this to create your personalized Dutch Roots Tour. The itinerary will be drafted in close cooperation with you. If you’d like to see more of the country, we will take suggestions based upon your interest, needs, and ideal pace.
We are also available for booking accommodation, renting bikes, buying entry tickets, arranging local guides, or boat tours. And of course we will provide all the documents, pictures, and genealogical information our researchers uncover during the research phase.
Be Your Guide
Your guide, who is your host, driver and interpreter, will know the ins and outs of your program and can tell you all about Dutch culture and history, as well as the surrounding landscape. He or she will provide all the services you might expect from a good guide: from offering an insider’s perspective into the Netherlands, to buying entry tickets. Our guides are passionate about their work; for them, it’s all about the fun of discovery as well! Our guides are flexible and good improvisers; they will know when to be there for you, and when to give you some space.
