My husband and I booked this walking tour as part of our trip to Amsterdam and the Netherlands. John provided us with an exceptional experience that started with him meeting our train at 9:30 a.m. and ending in the early evening by a local restaurant where we enjoyed a meal before heading back to our hotel. We walked about 9 miles that day, but it was worth every minute. John shared so much information and history with us that we simply would not have received on our own. The highlights for us included seeing "The Girl with the Pearl Earring," by Johannes Vermeer and "The Gold Finch," by Carel Fabritiusat at Mauritshuis, both iconic and beautiful pieces of art. John also took us to Panorama Mesdag, the largest panormic painting in Europe. Coming up the top of the stairs to view this was breathtaking. My husband and I are huge history buffs which we shared with John. He started the tour by sharing the history of The Hague and its founding by the House of Orange-Nassau walking through the grounds of the palace. We also wanted to see the Peace Palace due to the legal and historical significance of it, so John also arranged for us to go the grounds. We also walked to the mansions occupied by the Nazis during WWII and was able to see the scarring in the trees caused by barb wire that was wrapped around them. John is very knowledgeable having lived in The Hague for over 30 years (originally from Britain). He was very personable and funny. Throughout the day, John would encourage us to pose for photos in great locations around The Hague. There was so much that we saw that day (too much to list!) and he made it a day we will not soon forget. He ended the trip with some nice tokens from the area, which added a special touch to end the day.

It was a great pleasure to show you my home town and super that you liked my Sights and Stories so. The Art with my Artistic insights when hardly anyone else is about in the museum helps makes for an unforgettable visit indeed. It would be super to meet you both again one day and perhaps we can Tour Delft and Rotterdam together as well !

John's Tour was my own B-day gift. We were a group of four, and I cannot imagine having had a better celebration! We have been living in The Hague for quite some time (some of my friends for almost 10 years!), and John let us discover a new city, full of history, anecdotes, hidden gems. We walk for almost 4 hours ,having and entertaining as well as interesting afternoon. We cannot wait to go to Delft with him! He is very knowledgeable and clear. I cannot recommend John enough, not only if you are visiting The Hague but also if you live here and just want to enjoy and to know better city. Sometimes it is just about turning off your cell phone and look up and around! Thanks John for letting us travel through time with you!

John is a gracious, thoughtful and considerate guide who was able to show us all the sites of the Hague in just a matter of hours. He carefully catered to our wishes and brought so much more to the picture as well. My husband who usually finds tour guides to be corny said "He was such a great guy. We need to do more tours like this!" I cannot recommend this tour enough.

In addition to the great couples tour of the sites and sounds of The Hague, I had the opportunity for a unique solo experience of a trip to the Overloon WW2 museum. John orchestrated every last detail. He rented a car for the 2 hour drive and provided coffee and snacks for the ride and even packed a lunch for us. That roast beef sandwich on John’s home baked bread was delish! John pre purchased the entry tickets to ease the process. We toured the museum which was more than you could see in 1 day. It was a great experience. John is friendly, knowledgeable and we enjoyed good conversation throughout the tour and car ride door to door from and to my hotel. I recommend John to anyone visiting The Hague area that are looking for their own private customized experience at a comfortable pace! Larry

Hi Larry, Super of you to write such a detailed review and indeed it was a pleasure for me to spend 3 days with you Touring The Hague, Delft, and the WW2 museum was really special. Thank you for sharing the stories of your dad and his great contribution and it was a surprise for me to find out that my dad fought in the battle of Overloon too with his service as a gunner in a Sherman tank as part of the Black Bulls. See you again one day, maybe in Rotterdam perhaps, but in the meantime, kindest regards, John P.S. Maybe TripAdvisor are able to rotate your photo of a Sherman tank in the museums' D-Day diorama for us too(?)

With such limited time to visit an important place such as The Hague, we felt that we needed a tour guide so we can spend the time touring rather than figuring out directions. And John is the perfect tour guide for The Hague! He is so knowledgeable and beyond that, you can feel his genuine love and passion for all things Den Haag. And now we love The Hague too. :) It's also great how he emphasizes that a tour is not a marathon. He is thoughtful and very much attuned to the needs of his clients, and flexible to maintain a balance of comprehensiveness and comfort in his tours. His service starts even before the tour, and continues after the tour, for any questions you might have. Thanks John, and we hope to see you again!
