Amsterdam, Delft and The Hague Experiences
Stroll with your guide from your hotel, the Sofitel Amsterdam (part of the “Legend” collection), to the oldest part of the city, along ancient canals, beautiful houses and tall church towers. Pass Chinatown and visit the famous flea market. See the remains of the Jewish Quarter and the floating flower market.
After a short walk on the main shopping street, you will see Dam Square with the Royal Palace right in the middle.
Today, your guide will take you on a guided tour through the Rijksmuseum. The newly-renovated museum holds one of the largest collections of Rembrandt’s paintings in the world. There are numerous other famous paintings on exhibit such as paintings from Steen, Hals, Vermeer, Rubens, Avercamp and others.
Just outside the Rijksmuseum, you will board a historic Saloon Boat for a guided lunch cruise through the Amsterdam canals. You’ll end at the famous Anne Frank House. Her former hiding place is now a museum.
The name Delft is synonymous with porcelain, and this town is justifiably famous for the blue-and-white pottery that Italian immigrants began making here in the 1600’s. Delft flourished as the 17th century headquarters of the Dutch East India Company and was home to one of Holland’s greatest painters, Jan Vermeer.
But the greatest attraction of Delft is the town itself, which is crammed with 17th and 18th century houses, streets that overlook canals, magnificent public buildings, outdoor markets, and a surprising number of museums.
The Hague is one of the most extraordinary cities in Holland. Not just because it is home to so many international organizations, but also because of its location near the beautiful North Sea coast and many historical sights.
This capital is known as “the city of peace and justice” and is called “the residence city” because of the many members of the Dutch royal family who live in its chic neighborhoods. With your guide, you will also visit a cheese farm. For more than 100 years, this farm has been specializing in Gouda cheese and traditional clog making! Enjoy a wooden-shoe-making demonstration and a cheese tasting.
