Tour started on time, 9.30am, coach was comfortable and clean, driver good. Guide was very good, well informed, excellent linguistics and delivery plus a sense of humour. Great way to see highlights of The Hague, Delft plus pottery tour, miniature park, Rotterdam and lastly a harbour cruise. Tour took longer than advertised, back to Amsterdam at 8pm

An impeccable tour, the cities we visited wonderful. I would only recommend more time in The Hague and Delf, less time in the miniature park. The park will be very nice but we would have preferred The Hague and Delf more.

Great trip! Hague, Delft, Maduroland, Rotterdam-it would have taken days to hit all this one our own. Our guide, Pedro, was the absolute best! He kept everything moving and was very informative.

Excellent tour. We covered much ground. Enjoyed it all! Very well planned tour. Guide and driver were very nice, knowledgeable and helpful.

Great organizations! Thanks alot to Adrian - fantastic guide! Recommend this excursion!
