Tailor-made Hockey Tours in Holland

Field hockey may be the second most popular sport played in Holland after football, but it is a religion by the thousands of male and female players. Field hockey facilities are outstanding throughout the country, with some clubs boasting 7 or 8 astro turfs side by side!!! The standard of play is first class.  

Top players from around the world come to Holland to play in one of the only proffesional leagues in existence.  Whilst social and less experienced teams are well catered for, Holland is a must for any serious hockey player and we really encourage our teams to try and take in a top division game if they can fit it in their itinerary.

  • Gullivers stepped in to help us out when another company let us down at the last minute.  We were very impressed with, and grateful for, the efficient way that Gulliver put together a tour for us to closly match our previous plans and we felt entirely secure once we had confirmed our tour with them.  Our boys had a fantastic experience whilst on tour and the coaching session organised for us with a professional player was a real highlight, as was the visit to see a top level hockey match and the guided tour of Ajax football stadium.  Having our own coach and driver available made it possible for us to visit a number of different places.
