Full description
Experience the regal manners of the Dutch capital on a private 2-hour walking tour of The Hague, and see royal palaces and handsome administrative buildings with long and interesting histories. From the old hunting residence of the Counts of Holland, built by Count Floris IV in 1230, The Hague has developed over the centuries from a wealthy village (called the most beautiful and richest in Europe by the 16th-century Italian travel writer Lodovico Guicciardini) to a place of grandeur and the seat of the Dutch government and parliament. As you explore the sights, including the historic Binnenhof complex of buildings built in the 13th century, learn the hidden history of the city. Hear how Emperor Charles V gave the command to plant 4 rows of lime trees in the Voorhout, and learn about the dramatic decapitation of Van Oldenbarnevelt, as well as the assassination of the De Witt brothers. Along the route you will pass a series of former and current royal palaces, including the Noordeinde Palace, the “working palace” for the present King Willem-Alexander.

It was a successful tour of The Hague, we saw a lot and Mr. Franssen was a great guide with a lot of background knowledge. I would love to book this trip again and again! I can recommend the excursion especially for private groups. You can learn a lot about the city, there is a lot to walk for, but that was not a problem.

It was a very interesting tour from an architectural point of view - everyone (16 participants LionsClub Essen Stadtwald) agreed that we would have missed a lot without this event. A small restriction, if you have general walking problems, you should avoid this tour - 2 hours of asphalt walking requires a certain level of fitness.

- very good guidance - adjusted time with a "liquid stop" (was a group guidance) - guidance took place in German and was very understandable - gladly again at any time
