What people are saying about The Hague

We were thrilled with the museum visit! Recommended for anyone who is a little interested in history. One prison cell is still in its original state, which is very worth seeing. and, however, I find it unsuitable for small children due to the reports from the prisoners there. The staff is very nice and helpful. A lot of background information can be called up with the Audi Guide, also in German. Great value for money and interesting visit!

cozy relaxed atmosphere on board and at the same time very helpful where necessary and a good guide who told a good story about The Hague in a natural way. The cooperation between the guide and the skipper was also coordinated. Highly recommended I myself grew up in The Hague in my youth in the 1950s and 1960s and now in recent years I have returned for a day.

The guide and the captain were wonderful and the guide was distinctive and outstandingly informative and funny. Very comfortable tour

Very interesting. But unfortunately you can't see much. Just one cell

I loved the museum, and the folks that worked there were super helpful.
