Top notch it was really worth it! The boat trip in Rotterdam's harbor was memorable. The visit of Delft was just the right amount of touring and some time to ourselves. The Didn't do much in the Hague but at least went there. The day was full throughout. Our guide Willem did an excellent job with his maps and historical story-telling, which filled in alot of the blanks for me . Very well done and would recommend it.
