All cities were visited. Everything was explained very well and shown what was really important to know. There was time to move freely in the cities. We took a break to take photos in front of particularly interesting buildings, such as the International Court of Justice. The only disadvantage was that in my opinion there were too many fellow travelers. A large, confusing group where I was personally worried about being accidentally forgotten because I couldn't imagine that the tour guide would be able to remember all the faces, especially at the first few stops. A clear time was set when we would meet again at the bus and no one was forgotten. I really enjoyed the trip, but I prefer to travel in a small group of 5-20 people.

Our guide Pia is the best. She is kind, caring, dedicated and gave excellent commentary of the various sites. She gave clear advise regarding meeting up times and made sure that no one gets left behind. our driver Peter is kind and efficient.

It’s a super way to spend a day taking in lots of Southern Holland. It’s great value for money and you don’t need to think about managing your own logistics while soaking up history, culture and geography.

The tour was great! Tony was an excellent guide and Frank an excellent driver! I think that we should spend some more time in The Hague.

It was very nice, well organized and very informative. Our guide Pia was very friendly and helpful.
