The focus of my visit to Amsterdam, Delft, and The Hague was historical Dutch art and architecture. On our second day Walda met me in her wonderful, small, comfortable for long legs, Citroen and took me to Delft for a tour of the Royal Delft Factory followed by a walking tour of Delft. After a light lunch, we drove to The Hague to viewing the city and government buildings and tour the Mauritshuis Museum to see gems by Vermeer, Rembrandt and more. Walda is excellent and a very informative guide. JS
