1. Visit the Girl with the Pearl Earring, The Hague & Delft
Spend the afternoon exploring The Hague and Delft. Visit the Mauritshuis, see the Girl with the Pearl Earring in person, and learn about the other masterpieces in the gallery's vast collection. Then escape the city and discover the old-world charm of Delft. Get picked up by your guide from your hotel and head directly to the Mauritshuis, right in the center of The Hague. Listen as your certified guide gives you in-depth information about the precious works of art in the collection. See works from the great Dutch masters, including Rembrandt, Vermeer, Ruisdael, Frans Hals, and Rubens. Witness for yourself the majesty of the Girl with the Pearl Earring. Next, take a tour of The Hague's city center and wander along the charming cobblestone streets of the old town. Pass by the Houses of Parliament — the actual residence of the Dutch king, and the Binnenhof — the inner court. Continue with your guide to Delft and meander along the narrow streets lined with quaint houses, woven throughout with canals, and dotted with historic churches, including the church where William of Orange is buried. At the tour's conclusion, get dropped off at your hotel, lodgings, cruise, or the Schiphol Airport.
