Welcome to the Dutch Tour Company, a quality incoming touroperator since 2012!
We are Salomé and Ian, a working couple that have been organizing tours and activities together for the past 9 years. We have worked with travellers, tour companies, universities and businesses from all over the planet.
After specialising for years in tours for private groups and educational student travel, 2020 forced us to adapt most of our activities to virtual programs. We were able to change to virtual tours and activities. Ever since then we have organized many virtual tours for universities, schools, businesses, travel groups, non-profits and communities from around the planet.
