Ruijs Travel

Our Business History

The history and experience of Ruijs Travel dates back to 1919 when, from a small Dutch village called Lith, the Ruijs family started  operating tours.

Throughout the years business grew quickly and Ruijs Travel expanded tour operations into the 21st Century, yet remains family-owned. Leadership of the current fourth generation continues to grow the business, without losing sight of the customer’s personal attention, service and detail.

Over the years, strong relationships with vendors have been built up, and Ruijs Travel has become a reliable partner for them, guaranteeing the delivery of excellent services to you:
Our experience is your advantage.
