Discover Delft & the Hague and see the Dutch countryside using the public transport
In this Full Day Tour you will discover charming Delft, which is the town of the artist Johannes Vermeer, Delftware and tomb of the Royal family. You will explore this charming town on a walking discovery tour which will included the Old & New Church and the city hall.
We will travel 'green' using the comfortable, reliable and inexpensive Dutch public transport system.
After lunch we travel to the Hague, the city of the government, the Royal Family and the Peace Palace. You will see the Houses of Parliament (partly being renovated at this moment), Palace Noordeinde (the working palace of King William-Alexander) & the Peace Palace combining a walking discovery tour with the public transport.
Your private licensed guide will inform you while traveling about the Dutch eternal fight with the water. You will see how the Dutch will keep their feet dry in a country where about 40 per cent lies below the level of the sea. You will see some windmills underway and in springtime perhaps some flower fields as well.

I am not a driver. I prefer to use the Dutch public transport system, which is environmentally friendly, reliable, relatively fast and a great way of discovering our country. I do also have colleagues available with private transport.
