Delft, The Hague and Madurodam Half-Day Trip from Amsterdam

Visit The Hague during your half-day trip

This afternoon tour takes you to Delft and The Hague from Amsterdam, with a final stop at Madurodam. Start your 5.5-hour tour in central Amsterdam and board the sightseeing coach for the 1-hour drive south. 
On arrival, watch how Holland’s iconic blue-and-white Delft pottery is produced at the Royal Delft, the only remaining earthenware factory from the Golden Age of the 17th century. View a large collection of Delft antiques at the museum and marvel at a likeness of Rembrandt's The Night Watch reproduced with original Delft blue tiles.
With roughly 30 minutes to explore the historic city center independently, meander past landmarks such as the Oostpoort (Eastern Gate), Waag (Weigh House), Oude Kerk (Old Church) and Nieuwe Kerk (New Church). Then meet back up with your guide for the drive to The Hague, considered the world’s judicial capital. There will be a tour of the city by coach of the former Netherlands capital.

Next stop on the tour will be Madurodam. Reaching Holland's miniature city, take an hour to wander among miniature models of famous Holland attractions replicated in minute detail. See Amsterdam’s canal houses, the Alkmaar cheese market, spinning windmills and ships sailing through the harbor as well as the largest miniature railway in the world.

After your half-day tour, depart for central Amsterdam in the evening.

Wow, this was a great tour. Although the time for each sightseeing destination was not enough but it was a intro to the other places outside of Amsterdam city it self. The shopping stops was a bit too long. The tour guide was very clear and bus driver was friendly. The bus was clean however on the upper deck, it gets hot so we would need to tell the driver to turn on the A/C. Would recommend this tour for a great highlight of Amsterdam.

Enjoyed this afternoon trip to Delft and The Hague. It is a quick trip but gives you a nice overview and gets you out of the city of Amsterdam and see a bit of the countryside.

Our guide for the afternoon tour was Marianne who was excellent, knowledgeable and understanding! She even knew when to stop talking. Our first stop was Delft, with time for the tour of the lovely factory and gift shop. Would have liked a stop in their garden cafe, but we went on to the town square for a little free time and coffee. We carried on to the Hague for a walking tour of the important buildings which was interesting. Michael was our driver, very careful and slowed every time places of interest were pointed out. We returned as the sun was almost setting, a perfect afternoon. Thank you.

Once again, Viator comes through with clean transportation, knowledgeable guides, and a thoroughly enjoyable visit to charming Delft (and the fascinating working pottery factory) and The Hague (with a visit to the Peace Palace). All along the trip are facts and anecdotes to enhance our enjoyment!

The ride to Delft was lovely and the town of Delft was so charming. Our only complaint is that we were not given enough time to browse around the city. The choice was to browse or eat lunch, and we chose the latter because of the timing. The factory tour in Delft was terrific, but once again we needed more time to shop at the end.
The Hague tour was interesting and well worth the trip. The tour guide was knowledgeable and was eager to share the history and culture of his country. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed this introduction to the Netherlands.

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.
