What people are saying about Delft

Onze gids liep prettig rustig. We kregen alle tijd. Meer dan genoeg informatie en uitleg. Voorlopig kunnen met alle adviezen van onze gids nog wel even voort in Delft.

The churches are nice but you have to add an extra charge to climb the church and see the panoramic view. Otherwise, the explanations were clear

If you like history this is great fun. The city of Delft is very atmospheric and cosy, Dutch... You really feel welcome
