TUESDAY 27 AUGUST

Mid day, 4 hour visit to Delft including lunch.

The historically important city of Delft is best discovered and contemplated from its centuries-old canals. For 50 years the canal cruiser boats of Rondvaart Delft have been sailing people along its canals, historic landmarks and centuries-old arched bridges.

[The experienced team of captains and guides are all passionate and knowledgeable about the rich history of this picturesque city and pride themselves on the live commentary they deliver in several languages. ]Come and see the beautiful old town from the canals that gave it its name, learn about Delft’s illustrious history in Holland and its royal connections including William of Orange, Hugo Grotius, Dutch Masters Johannes Vermeer and Jan Steen, seafaring heroes Piet Hein and Maarten Tromp, Delftware, the leaning tower of Delft which is taller than the tower of Pisa and so much more.

Rondvaart Delft operates four cruise ships of which the silent boat “William the Silent” is one of the first fully electric canal cruise boats in the Netherlands. All vessels are purpose built for the canals of Delft in order to fit under the low bridges and with their retractable roofs are suitable for all weather conditions.

Lunch and transport will be provided during this excursion.
