I have always been interested in the hague as an American and my husband is a criminal prosecutor. However, we did not go in any of those government buildings and I believe having done research before that it’s very difficult to get in or they have a lot of restrictions. The buildings that I saw from the outside and the paintings were lovely. The pottery was fascinating.

I liked everything: the organization, the guide Peter was wonderful, he told us a lot during the excursion. I recommend it. Besides, there is no audio guide, only English and Spanish.

Great! This was THE place I wanted to see this time in the Netherlands. Audioguide was a good pace. Having demos throughout the factory was cool.

Brought my family this time. It was just as amazing as my first trip back in 2008.

The guide’s ability to speak English is very very poor.
