Greet your private guide in Delft’s ambient Market Square and admire the grand architecture of Stadhuis (Town Hall), an impressive 19th-century structure. Inform your guide of any sights you wish to see and relish the opportunity to customize your itinerary according to your interests.

Then, amble along Delft’s picturesque streets to the Old Town, home to historical landmarks such as Agneta Park and the Old Church (Oude Kerk). As you stroll adjacent to canals, you’ll learn of Delft’s links to Johannes Vermeer, a Dutch Golden Age painter born and raised in the town.

Delft is famous for its association with William of Orange, the leader of the Dutch Revolt and the independent Dutch Republic. Enrich your knowledge with history-rich commentary as you learn about the influential figure’s tragic end, and see his tomb in New Church (Nieuwe Kerk).

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the region's history and we greatly enjoyed the information. He was very personable and thoroughly enjoyed the topics, which made the tour even more enjoyable. He joined us for lunch at the end of the tour and we had great fun.
