What people are saying about Delft

This was a very small group, only 5 of us so it was almost a private tour. Juliette was our guide and she was great, she provided us with loads of information about the places we visited and the history and the life in general. As we were a small group we had extra walking stops in Rotterdam (markethall and cube houses) and in the Hague (Parliament) which weren't in the itinerary which was great. I'd recommend introducing a walking tour in Rotterdam and the Hague at the expanse of the harbour tour which could be omitted. Highlight was definitely Delft, which is amazing. Thanks Julitte and Jan (the driver).

It was a great tour. Despite the weather being rough and it raining almost the entire day our tour guide Eva made sure we make the most of our trip and visit every place planned for us. She was energetic and interactive with all of us on board. The driver Peter too was kind and polite. The only recommendation I would give, is to have us see more of Rotterdam city instead of the cruise ride that is booked for an hour. Thank you for the experience!

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.

Excellent guide of Juliette English French and Spanish Competence and professionalism You should have more time for Delft and less for Rotterdam In general the tour is good
