Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your tour begins as you board your motorcoach for a short drive to The Hague. En route, you'll pass lowland countryside dotted with farms, canals, flower fields and windmills, the perfect symbol of Holland's past.

Upon arriving, take a narrated drive through The Hague, passing the Houses of Parliament and the Peace Palace, often called the seat of international law as it houses the International Court of Justice, the principal judicial body of the United Nations.

Your tour continues with a drive to Delft, where you'll join your guide for a short walk through the narrow streets of this charming 17th-century city. Although most famous for its porcelain, Delft is also the birthplace of painter Vermeer, and the site of William of Orange's assassination.

Here, visit De Porceleyne Fles (Royal Delft Factory), the Netherland's most famous delft factory. While others may turn to mass production, the Delft Factory painstakingly creates its famed earthenware using the same methods employed since the factory's founding in 1653. You'll take a guided tour of the factory and watch artists demonstrate the hand painting that makes each piece of Delft a work of art.

Before driving back to the pier, you'll have free time to shop in the Delft store.
