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.

Als "Hagenees" herkende ik heel veel en het werd leuk verteld. Dat je onder sommige bruggen heel erg moet bukken/duiken moet wel voor iedere boeking eerlijk worden gezegd.

De rondvaart is meer dan de moeite waard. Den haag heeft heel wat moois vanaf het water te zien.
De gids is zeer deskundig en vertelt veel over zijn /haar stad😀
