Historic, rural and sidecar fun experience

This is a very divers rural and historic tour. And so much more fun then a normal tour just because of the fact we do it with a sidecar.
Explore the beautiful and diverse centre of the provinces of Holland and Utrecht, which includes rivers, lakes, forests, polders, medieval castles, golden age mansions, windmills, the royal palace and pancakes while riding a sidecar.

I am Marco Hupkes, your guide. My background is: traveller, guide, outdoor-instructor, comedian, teacher of history. Allow me to show you my home country and I'm sure we will have great fun together. See you soon and have a nice day.

By the way: if you have tour ideas of your own let me know. I love to do tailormade things.

Greetings, Marco.
