This is a unique day excursion from Amsterdam to a part of the Netherlands that is unknown to many tourists. You’ll see a great harbor, beautiful centuries-old buildings, breathtaking Dutch polders and coasts and picturesque villages. And above all you’ll experience the Dutch roots of the American presidential family Roosevelt. The first stop is Rotterdam. Important architect designed buildings has risen here. And still this area offers echoes of a fascinating history. In the famous Hotel New York we have a coffee break. Then the tour is going southwards to Zeeland. We first visit the Oosterscheldekering, the largest Delta Works of the Netherlands. In the city of Middelburg thereafter you’ll visit the 15th century town hall. And you'll enjoy the late gothic abbey, where the Four Freedoms Awards are awarded every two years. The ancestors of presidents Theodore and Franklin Delano and first lady Eleanor were farmers on a Dutch island. So after lunch a polder is waiting for you. A polder on the island of Tholen, which was in the 17th century the birthplace of the Roosevelts. The polder is near the village of Oud-Vossemeer. In the old town hall of this village you’ll learn more about the roots of the Roosevelts. This tour is a search for the roots of the ever-inspiring presidential family. Guests will also experience the unparalleled beauty of the Netherlands for an entire day.
As a passionate historian and journalist I recently developed The Roosevelt in the Netherlands tour. In this tour I guide mainly American tourists from Amsterdam, to Rotterdam, Middelburg and Oud-Vossemeer. I was born and raised in Oud-Vossemeer. My father was a farmer in “The village of Roosevelt.” After studying history at Utrecht University, I worked as a journalist in Dutch cities such as Middelburg and Rotterdam and in Indonesia. I have been based in Amsterdam since 2001. Now i work as a freelance historian / filmmaker and of course as a guide for Roosevelt Tours. A few years ago my partner Monique and I made a documentary about a forgotten emigration from the poor farmers of Zeeland to Brazil in the 19th century. I love to tell about good stories from our past, and especially about shared past, like the Dutch-American history.
