Why is a tour date/time not available in the calendar?2024-04-08T14:07:39+00:00

All tours for this date are fully booked. Please consider another date or time to come and visit Delft.

If you really want to come on this date and have a larger group, consider taking a Private Walking Tour of Rotterdam. You can enjoy Delft with your own private guide!

Can I reserve the tour for more than 6 people?2024-04-08T14:02:40+00:00

Our booking system allows reservations for a maximum of 6 people per booking. Our experience shows us that other attendees appreciate smaller groups within the tour. It keeps the tour up to speed and it’s easier to make new friends between smaller groups. We kindly ask you to respect this.

If you are visiting with a larger group, consider booking a Private Walking Tour of Delft. You will have full attention of your own guide and it leaves more space for improvisation during the tour.

Do you still wish to join a Free Tour with a group larger than 6 people? If we have enough availability, you can make multiple reservations in our booking system under the same name and email address.

What language is the tour given in?2024-04-08T13:55:26+00:00

Our daily tours are given in English. We try to use clear, basic English to tell our stories to people of all nationalities. If something is unclear during the tour, please tell us and we will take our time to explain it.

In the summer season, we are planning to launch Free Walking Tours Delft in Spanish. If you are planning to join with a group, we offer paid private tours in English, German, Spanish and Dutch. For more information about private tours, visit our Guided Tour webpage.

Is the tour route wheelchair & stroller accessible?2024-04-08T14:04:51+00:00

Yes, some areas have stairs, but it’s possible to go around them and visit the sites with wheelchair or strollers. We must admit, however, that the small stone roads are not the most comfortable for those on wheels. If you are willing to bear that for two hours, you can have a great tour with us.

Excellent tour with Nidas yesterday! I really appreciated his knowledge of architecture and the honest, fact-based, and sometimes comedic approach to presenting the history of Delft.

Shera passed to us a large amount of knowledge about Delft. We found the town beautiful, and Shera knew the little-related facts and stories to bring it alive. We especially enjoyed the discussion of Royal Delft porcelain.

William of Orange

The Dutch father of the fatherland, William Orange is also known as the leader of the successful Dutch Revolt against Spain, which led to the Royal family from Orange of Nassau and the Dutch Republic

The famous Dutch historian and writer Greet Mak called Delft a ‘lining viewing box, full of canals and picturesque corners’. The perfect description for one of Holland’s most delightful places, with beautiful bitty bridges and quirky quays, built on an intrinsic water network.

Delft is about as old as Amsterdam and rose to become one of the bigger cities of Holland in the 14th century. Being the biggest beer brewer back in the day, its liquid golden history is still honored today by its numerous small breweries.

The city centre of Delft is quaint and easy to explore, with its old city walls containing much of its original allure. Its limited accessibility for cars makes Delft perfect for a Free Walking Tour. Give us 2 hours of your time and we will give the highlights of this wonderful city and its hidden gems and hotspots.

Delft boasts a rich history, rooted in the murder of William the Silent, the father of our fatherland. It is the birthplace of Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, who invented the microscope and the origin of the iconic Delfts Blue pottery, a factory that has retained its original charm from 1653. This is not just a history tour, our guide will also introduce you with life in the city today. The Technical University of Delft has one of the largest campuses in the world, which is why this student city is chock full of bars and restaurants that cater to every budget.
