Greet your private guide in Delft’s ambient Market Square and admire the grand architecture of Stadhuis (Town Hall), an impressive 19th-century structure. Inform your guide of any sights you wish to see and relish the opportunity to customize your itinerary according to your interests.
Then, amble along Delft’s picturesque streets to the Old Town, home to historical landmarks such as Agneta Park and the Old Church (Oude Kerk). As you stroll adjacent to canals, you’ll learn of Delft’s links to Johannes Vermeer, a Dutch Golden Age painter born and raised in the town.
Delft is famous for its association with William of Orange, the leader of the Dutch Revolt and the independent Dutch Republic. Enrich your knowledge with history-rich commentary as you learn about the influential figure’s tragic end, and see his tomb in New Church (Nieuwe Kerk).
If you wish, discover Delft’s artistic heritage during a visit to the Royal Delft, the last remaining Delftware factory from the 17th-century. Famed for its distinctive blue-and-white pottery inspired by Chinese porcelain, the factory boasts a collection of beautiful hand-painted treasures.
When your tour concludes, bid your guide farewell and continue exploring Delft independently.
