Why Travelers Choose This Tour
All you need is one afternoon to visit two of Holland's most iconic cities and the remarkable miniature version of the Netherlands at Madurodam. A smart choice if you're short on time.
This afternoon tour takes you to Delft and The Hague from Amsterdam, with a final stop at Madurodam. Start your tour in central Amsterdam and board the sightseeing coach for the roughly hour long drive south. On arrival, watch how Holland’s iconic blue-and-white Delft pottery is produced at 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 a bit of time 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, where you can 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.
I did not regret purchasing this trip, it was a good value for a price. The tour was very well organized, we didn't have to wait anywhere. The Delft porcelain factory was great. I was a little bit disappointed that we've hardly seen any of the Hague. I've been to the Hague before, so for me it was still a good deal, butI thought we will get a chance at least to tour a city by foot.
This was an incredibly large group of 80, but this was not the problem. When we did the tour of the Delft pottery factory, they divided us into 2 groups of 40. We could not hear the tour guide at all, she was unavailable for questions and we had no idea what we were looking at as we walked through the small space. She basically gave the tour to the first 10 people in the group. When I asked our guide from the bus a minor question about the tour, she was unable to help in any way.
When we went to the Hague, the guide on the bus did a poor job pointing out the buildings in town and often was joking with the bus driver while the microphone was on.
When we went to Madurodam, we were given access, but not directed to where the introductory movie was (it was fantastic) and everyone else but our group had access cards that they could put up to stations to hear informational recordings. We received no cards like this which come with admission price, so we all just walked around with little idea of what we were looking at.
I discovered that the Madurodam was a great place (turns out it was an extremely awesome war memorial) and when I discovered on my own information about the place, it was one of the coolest places around. This was via NO HELP from our tour people. I recommend these locations, but perhaps with a different company, one who is interested or has the ability to share information with the tour group.
Made it possible to visit several sites in short period of time and for not that much more $ than on our own because of included entrance fees. We thorough enjoyed Madurodam which we wouldn't have done if not included.
The tour was excellent. Huge double decker bus but very efficient. Guide was knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. A separate guide at the delft factory was good. We were able to spend an hour at Madurodam which was the specific purpose of this tour.
The tour of Delft, The Hague and Madurodam was very frustrating. We arrived at Delft first for a tour of the china factory that was divided by language. The vast majority of our group spoke English and the room was not large enough to accommodate all of us and allow us to see the demonstrations before they moved on to the next room. After that stop, where we were urged to hurry out, we stopped in the town of Delft. The bus was forced to park about a 10-15 minute walk from the town center where we were headed. When we got there the tour guide told us to be back on the bus in an hour and reminded us it was about a 15 minute walk to the bus....leaving us with about 30 minutes in Delft. The
