My main activity is history research. That reflects on my tours. They're always different, never routine!
I do not intend avoiding the famous highlights. But also, with any tour, we'll discover a multitude of places unmentioned in the guidebooks.
Places with a story:
People's history. Not the bricks and the stones only. As explained elsewhere on this website, Holland is the result of a 1000 years of (water) engineering. Survival was always fully dependant on the decisions of people. And people are bound to make mistakes. In the past, today, and I reckon in the future as well. The offer is to show you that fascinating story of these Low Countries by the sea during a history walk, a bicycle day trip or in other ways, like with a presentation or during a cooking session. For a better understanding of present day Holland, its culture and the people.
The Netherlands have a reputation of unsettled weather. Forecasts longer than a couple of days ahead remain hazardous, even with modern technology. While a rainy day can be unpleasant for a bike trip, that's no problem really for a walk in a historical city. Plenty of possibilities.
We can simply adapt the way we're going to discover Dutch history & heritage to practical conditions and possibilities. By mutual agreement, of course.
Made-to-measure & personalized:
You're very welcome to mention specific interests in advance. Or you can leave it all to me. You'll get the best of the day and the season.
The essence is that any activity is just for you, your family, your party.
Small scale. Nothing to do with "fast food industrial tourism".
True, a tour with me will take you considerable time. Half a day or full day. But what you get is a unique experience, focused on your interests. A day you sure will remember.
Upon receipt of payment your order will be packed and posted either the same day, or at latest the next working day.
Paypal and credit cards are processed almost immediately, while bank transfers can take 24-48 hours.
In general we find that deliveries to Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane metro and VIC regional are made within 1-3 working days. NSW, SA, TAS, ACT and NT take 2-5 working days. Regional QLD, WA and other remote areas will take 5-7 working days.
Please note these are only expected deliveries times and occasionally delays may occur.
We use Australia Post for all of our deliveries except for Bulky Items. For bulky items we use Direct Freight Couriers.
COMBINED POSTAGE FOR THE PURCHASE OF SEVERAL ITEMS
Our internal shipping charge calculator will tell you the cost of your postage prior to your checkout. In most cases buying more than 1 item will result in cost savings to you.
- Small items up to 500g cost around $7 postage. Depending on the weight and size you will get 2 sometimes 3 small items posted for this amount.
- Most larger items post for about $12 and you will generally be able to add 1-3 small items at no extra charge
- Once you purchase products over 3 kg in weight there is generally, only a small amount of extra postage charged
COMBINED SHIPPING CHARGES FOR BULKY ITEMS
You can add smaller items together with bulky items and there will generally be no or a small added postage cost. Ordering items such as 2 bike cases may not result in any savings due to their volume. Ordering mid-size items like two fluid trainers together will result in very good savings though. You will get your quote for shipping costs before you checkout.
