What people are saying about The Hague

Top notch it was really worth it! The boat trip in Rotterdam's harbor was memorable. The visit of Delft was just the right amount of touring and some time to ourselves. The Didn't do much in the Hague but at least went there. The day was full throughout. Our guide Willem did an excellent job with his maps and historical story-telling, which filled in alot of the blanks for me . Very well done and would recommend it.

Truly inspiring! This is probably the most complete museum of its kind. It took us over 3 hours to see most of this amazing building and could easily have used up another hour. The cafe area is so well organized, as though in a town surrounded by old artisan shops and interesting extras.

Was very nice, enjoyed the trip due to the detailed explanation from our guide julliet rainmaker. Some of the facts if travelled ourselves, we would have missed out. Beautiful city view of delft, Rotterdam and hague is worth the visit. Will defenetly travel more of these guided tours.

Very easy to use. Tour guides in the tram were so friendly and helpful. The audio guide was both informative and entertaining. Really a great way to see the city!

It was better than I expected. Compact and nice tour.
