A charming city, Delft will make you fall in love with it. On this guided tour, you will be visiting some popular places in the city like a traditional factory where you will get to see how Delft’s famous blue pottery is made and painted and the charming medieval central square. The tour itinerary also includes a visit to the enchanting city of The Hague where you will get to explore the quirky Madurodam.
Cities of the Royal family, Delft Blue pottery and Madurodam miniature village.
The tour can be organised every day but on Sundays the New Church in Delft can not be visited and in the weekends the visit to the Blue pottery is less interesting because there are no professional pottery painters then.
Delft is one of the oldest cities in Holland and it is famous for its Blue pottery. We will visit the traditional factory where you can see how the pottery is made and painted by hand. Of course we will make a walk around the medieval central square. In 1584, William the Silent was entombed in in a mausoleum in The New Church. Since then members of Royal family have been entombed in the royal crypt. The latest are Queen Juliana and her husband Prince Bernhard in 2004.
The hague is the political capital of the Netherlands with its many embassies. Among the highlights are a visit to the governmental centre of the Netherlands, the palace of the King and the International Court of Justice. Madurodam is a park that resembles Holland in miniature size. Buildings, markets, canals, windmills, Dam Square, the Delta works and much more is perfectly replicated to the smallest detail. Windmills turn, airplanes land at the airport, boats float in the Port of Rotterdam and in the canals of Amsterdam, parades take place.
