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.

Great tour through Delft with Harold. Learned about the history, visited one of the official Delfts Blue pottery and the New and Old church.

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