Churches, blue pottery and Vermeer's Girl with Pearl Earring


Delft is one of the oldest cities in Holland and it is famous for its Blue pottery. We will visit the traditional factory where you can see how the pottery is made and painted by hand. Of course we will make a walk around the medieval central square. In 1584, William the Silent was entombed in in a mausoleum in The New Church. Since then members of Royal family have been entombed in the royal crypt. The latest are Queen Juliana and her husband Prince Bernhard in 2004.

The Hague is the political capital of the Netherlands with its many embassies. Among the highlights are a visit to the governmental centre of the Netherlands and The Mauritshouse museum.
Here you can see some beautiful famous paintings by Vermeer (view on Delft), Rembrandt (Anatomic lesson), Jan Steen, Paulus Potter (the bull) and Rubens. Highlight of the collection is the girl with the pearl earring by Johannes Vermeer.

At the end of the excursion I will drive you back to your hotel in Amsterdam, or other city.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was the 3rd tour we scheduled with Vincent—every bit as special as the other two. His car provided a very comfortable ride as he described the surrounding countryside on our way to Delft. Knowing of my interest in Delft pottery, he selected a small, authentic factory/store where we purchased several gifts. We continued to be impressed by his knowledge of The Netherlands & its history and of the art he showed us in the Maurits House in The Hague. He is kind & patient; we can't recommend him enough!
