For a long time, Amsterdam has been at the top of many people's travelling ambitions. One of the original party city venues for many British tourists, the city is often a choice for sporting teams looking for a test against the best.
Let's set the records straight. There is a lot more to Amsterdam than is assumed. Like Rome, Barcelona, London & Paris, this is one of Europe's greatest cities & it's doors are wide open for Youth and Senior Rugby Teams alike.
We can plan tours to suit the ages of your team. Whether it be putting you at the heart of the nightlife or planning an action-packed & great fun itinerary for the Mini & Junior teams.
A superb sporting city with an almost unrivalled list of experiences to fill up your itinerary for an excellent tour to the Dutch Capital.
1. Kick Rugby with Dutch International Sep Visser
2. The National Dutch Rugby Centre
3. Madame Tussauds, The Amsterdam Dungeon & the Ajax Arena
4. Clara Maria Cheese & Clog farm and Zaanse Schans Windmill Village
5. The Hilversum Easter Rugby Festival
The Dutch are the best hosts in Europe. What is more, they can now back up their skill off the pitch with their skill on it. In 2019, we have sent some good teams to the Netherlands on Tour who have returned with much different thoughts on Dutch Rugby.
Amsterdam is the heart of the game in the country. Within a short drive from your digs, you can be at one of many great clubs. The real highlight of the tour will be the generosity of the hosts and the quality of their facilities.
The Hilversum Youth Festival each year is a highlight, but as every year passes, our connections with clubs increases & we're able to create some exceptional rugby programmes for all teams across the Netherlands.
Heading into 2021 our Dutch Tours are up their with the best on offer.
For those fortunate to live in the North of England, we'll collect you in an executive coach and transfer you to North Shields Ferry Terminal. From here, DFDS Seaways offer daily overnight crossings to Amsterdam. Often sighted as a real highlight of tours to Northern Europe, the DFDS crossing is superb fun.
You'll spend the night in 2-berth and 4-berth Cabins, enjoy an all-you-can-eat dinner & breakfast, enjoy live Music on the Stage and in the Troubadour bar. It may be the highlight of the tour!
On arrival in Holland, you'll be in the destination in no time.
For those in the South, you'll travel by executive coach from your club to Dover Ferry Terminal before sailing to Calais or Dunkirk. A short 90-minute hop over the channel will have you in Belgium in no time at all. Great value for money - the difference in price between staying in the UK & hopping across to Europe is minimal.
Once you're back on land, it is go go go to your location.
Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is one of the major hubs in Europe with great links to budget and chartered airlines across the globe. Given the traffic that passes through the airport, flights to Amsterdam are generally cheap.
From Schiphol, the superb road network in the Netherlands means you can be at any one of our Dutch & Belgian locations in next to no time.
We have links with several fantastic hostels to cater for every group. Whether it be above a nightclub for senior rugby teams or tucked away for a Youth group.
