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 more to Amsterdam than the two things that people assume. Like Rome, Barcelona, London & Paris, this is one of Europe's greatest cities & it's doors are wide open for Youth and Adult 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 M&J's.
A superb sporting city, an almost unrivalled list of options to fill up the itinerary Amsterdam is one of our prime choices for your tour.
1. Kick Rugby with Dutch International Sep Visser
2. The National Dutch Rugby Centre
3. Madame Tussauds, The Amsterdam Dungeon & the Ajax Arena

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 2017, 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 2018, Holland will be our #1.
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.

Once you're back on land, it is go go go to your location.
