Full description
Discover the Dutch roots of the Roosevelts, the American presidential family, in the company of an expert local guide. After getting picked up from the Lloyd Hotel in Amsterdam, a former migrant lodging house, head to the impressive harbor of Rotterdam, the second-largest city in the Netherlands. Stop for a coffee break in the famous Hotel New York and sample a delicious cake or pastry from the hotel's own patisserie.

Next, make your way to to the province of Zeeland. Visit the Oosterscheldekering, the largest Delta Works in the Netherlands, and learn about the impressive technology that protects the Dutch from the devastating effects of the sea. Afterwards, head to the city of Middleburg where you will visit the 15th-century town hall. Later, marvel at the stunning gothic abbey where the Four Freedoms Award is presented by The Roosevelt Foundation every two years.

Finally, enjoy a trip to the Dutch island of Tholen where the ancestors of Theodore and Franklin lived and worked as farmers. Enjoy a delicious meal at a restaurant on the island, washed down with a freshly-poured Roosevelt beer, before heading back to Amsterdam in the evening.
