The Road Less Travelled

Let’s forget tourist cliches and crowds, and yet still discover the authentic Netherlands.

(Fields of tulips like this can only be seen in April and early May, I’m afraid. Blame nature!)

Why Choose Me

Off-The-Beaten Track

Oh, I get it! The tourist trade is full of cliches. I only give tours I myself would like to take.

Glowing Reviews

The internet doesn't reward modesty, so I (faux) reluctantly encourage you to check out my reviews:

Flexible

My itineraries are tried and tested, but I'm always happy to be flexible if you have a special request.

I'm The Guy From The Site

This is my business. I'm not a hired hand.

I enjoy what I do.

Itineraries

The Classic Dutch Day Out

If you simply want to get out of Amsterdam and see a bit more of the Netherlands then this is the tour for you. We travel scenic backroads, pass through little villages, stop off at a beautiful Golden Age town, drive through polders and over dikes. We take a peek into a Dutch family farm (not a tourist farm, and surprisingly engrossing for most guests), visit a working windmill from the 1600s, and we can incorporate cheese and Dutch apple pie into our eating options.

Other Possible Tours

Delft & The Hague

My second most popular itinerary. Two cities for the price of one!

Giethoorn & Naarden

Well, Giethoorn is very touristy, very busy, and quite a drive from Amsterdam. But if you want to go, we’ll go!

Utrecht & Vinkeween

Picturesque city and lovely wetlands! That’s it in a nutshell.

Bespoke

Sometimes people have a very specific request. I can likely accommodate and plan the best route for you.

I'm originally Irish, have lived in NL for eight years, and have also lived in California, New York, and Spain. I love storytelling, I write, perform improv comedy, and would much prefer to take you on a tour than be in an office somewhere. No Excel spreadsheets for me!

Rory

I love exploring the world and sharing this passion with visitors to the Netherlands.
My tours are relaxed and I'll answer 95% of your questions about Dutch culture (it'd be arrogant to claim 100%).

Reviews

I run tours under two websites – this one and www.amsterdamtulipstour.com. My TripAdvisor reviews are compiled under the Tulips Tour banner. I also just started www.dutchcheesetasting.com. You can check out its reviews on Google.

What an amazing time we had with Rory and what an amazing host! We toured the countryside, stopped in beautiful small towns, got up close to windmills off the tourist trail (no crowds!)
