What people are saying about Delft

this tour lets me to know the three cities. I love Rotterdam better than other two cities, because there are so many different styles of buildings. especially that market building, it looks like a big arch from a distance, but it looks like a glass wall up close.

The guide Andre and driver Peter took such good care of us. My family has learnt so much about the different areas in Amsterdam from the trip. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

The tour was informative and fun, with a brief history of Delft. A great way to start your day in Delft as it helped orient you to the area.
