Tours » Dutch Nostalgie Tour of Surabaya - 1 Or More Days

Our "Nostalgie" Tour has been designed for our many Dutch clients. It is intended as an exploration of colonial Dutch-era remains in Surabaya. While we are not of Dutch ancestry ourselves, Dutch colonial history is a hobby of ours and we have a thorough knowledge of Surabaya’s colonial past. You may be searching for family connections with Surabaya, or just interested in your country’s history here. The tour can be over 1 or more days.
