Highlights

  • Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
  • Explore the local streets on a walking tour of the city
  • Fully narrated tour
  • Perfect introduction for first-time visitors
After pickup from central Amsterdam, head an hour south to the beautiful old town of Delft. Here you’ll take a tour of the Royal Delft, where the Netherlands’ famous Delft pottery is made.

As your guide will explain, this is the only remaining factory of the 32 that were established in Delft during the 17th century. See the production process throughout the factory and tour the museum to see a huge collection of Delft earthenware antiques, giving you a glimpse of the history of this iconic blue-and-white pottery, which was inspired by Chinese porcelain. You’ll also see a reproduction of Rembrandt's The Night Watch artwork made from original Delft blue tiles.

After your Royal Delft visit, you’ll have about 30 minutes to explore the city independently. Walk through the historic town center, filled with canals and historical sights such as Oude Kerk (Old Church), Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), the Oostpoort (Eastern Gate) city wall remains and the historic Waag (Weigh House).

From Delft, continue your journey to The Hague, the former capital of the Netherlands and today the seat of the Dutch Parliament. The Hague is often referred to as the judicial capital of the world, home to many international courts, European Union institutions, multinational companies and embassies.

Hop off the coach for a 30-minute walking tour of the Binnenhof, a complex of buildings that has been the meeting place of Parliament since 1446 and the center of Dutch politics for many centuries after. Walk by the Houses of Parliament and Noordeinde Palace, one of the three official palaces of the Dutch royal family. This is the 'working palace' of King Willem-Alexander.

Finally, make a photo stop at the Peace Palace, which houses the International Court of Justice and is used by the United Nations and the Permanent Court of Arbitration. Your guide will explain this site's significance.

Your half-day trip ends in central Amsterdam in the evening.

Interesting Delft factory with informative commentary by the person from the factory. The tour guide provided interesting info during the coach ride about Netherlands. We get to wander around the city square in Delft. It rained very heavily while we were there so we just had a drink in one of the cafés. More shops here selling Delft ceramics. The walk in The Hague is not strenuous at all.
