We were lucky to join a relatively small group allowed time for questions at the same time savoring the scenery. Friendly captain and tour guide, speaking English and German to accommodate the group. I got to know the city better by exploring from different perspective. I would definitely join the boat ride from Den Haag to Delft next time.
