John is one of the best tour guides that we have used in the last 15 years. He’s very enthusiastic, very knowledgeable and just a pleasure to walk around with. If you’re in Delft or Rotterdam or The Hague I would highly recommend spending some time with John

We hired John for a 1.5h-long VIRTUAL Delft city tour for an online event we had organized. It was a phenomenal experience! John was able to bring Delft to life via the video call and I can only imagine that it is even better in real life. Definitely recommend!

As a single female who has taken tours all over the world, except Asia, I highly recommend taking a tour with John to see Delft and/or The Hague. He is from England, so his English is perfect and can be easily understood. He has lived in the area for 40 years, so he is extremely knowledgable in the history, geography, architecture and everything there is to see and do. Because of him, I got to see areas of the Delft Pottery Workshop that were not open to our tours. I not only got to see the main points of interest, but he was able to show me things that I would have missed had he not been my guide. He adjusts his tours to fit the needs and interests of those taking his tours, but also makes suggestions so you will not miss anything really important to see. He also adjusts his walking pace and rest times to fit those on his tours. I felt completely safe being a single female on tour with John. His instructions on how to get to The Hague and to Delft and where we would meet were completely clear and worked perfectly. I highly recommend you taking a tour with John. I felt his prices were very reasonable given the amount of knowledge and the tour he provided. I highly recommend taking a tour with John. He is excellent.

John was absolutely the warmest most knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide we have ever used. He not only lives in the area, he is incredibly knowledgeable about the history, art, and cities of Delft and The Hague. Do not look any further- he is THE person to see either ( or both) Delft and The Hague.

It was such a pleasure to meet you All and I am so glad you liked my Sights ( your Vermeer inspired 'View of Delft' photo is great) & Stories. Hope to see you again one day in Holland and perhaps we can also Tour Rotterdam together !

John Rice is the penultimate guide for The Hague. He met my husband and I at the central train station and we spent the next 7.5 hours, learning all about the history of The Hague - as well as Delft - in an engaging, humorous, detailed way. Not only is John a fount of knowledge, but he allows you to set your own pace and keeps up a running commentary about whatever you choose. I can’t recommend his services enough. He made both cities come alive for us and made our trip all the more memorable.

My husband and I toured Delft in the morning, combined with a The Hague afternoon tour.

It was a truly memorable and productive day, and John was able to show us the key places in these cities, and tell us the history of Delft and The Hague with remarkable detail and depth without feeling overwhelmed. It is actually a really important place in global history, and John will show you why! From The VOC, to Vermeer, to Leeuwenhoek; please do take the time to visit Delft.

We highly recommend to combine both Delft and The Hague in a day. We were even able to squeeze in a bit of shopping in Delft, thanks to John's efficiency! We highly recommend John, and couldn't thank him enough! :)

We had a great English tour of Delft and all the history surrounding the old town by our tour guide John Rice. It was the first of 3 tours we ended up booking with John. He introduced us to the area the moment we stepped out of our hotel in The Hague and stepped onto the light rail tram to Delft. John cited points of interest all the way. He is very knowledgeable. There was never a dull moment in the tour and are so many historical hidden gems and architecture in and around Delft. If you ever visit The Hague, Delft or Rotterdam, contact John to show you around. You will be glad you did.

John is an absolute pleasure to have as a tour guide. He is knowledgeable, friendly, and considerate. During our tour, there was intermittent rain, and at one point, John had us huddle in a doorway to stay dry. He kept us engaged by explaining further details of things we had seen earlier in the tour. I highly recommend this tour!

After spending a day with Jonathan in The Hague, we knew we wanted him to take us to Delft! We had a second WONDERFUL day with him. John's knowledge of the location and history put our visit to the top of our list! It was wonderful....from the tram ride down, to the walk all around, and especially the tour of Royal Delft. He is VERY knowledgeable!!! It was a second great day for our first visit to The Netherlands. I highly recommend a tour with Jonathan! It was a very pleasurable day!

We arranged a private tour with John Rice for our 5 couples. John was very responsive to emails and provided tour information as well as train options from Amsterdam.

John met us at the train station, customized the tour based upon our interests and the weather, and arranged lunch for us at the coziest little restaurant with an indoor courtyard. We would never have found that place on our own so it was a great treat to enjoy such a local touch.

The tour itself was extremely informative. John has an academic-level knowledge of the history, the people, and all of the events that shaped Delft. As a Brit, John has perfect English. He also has a great attitude, is friendly, and is focused on his customers to ensure that their needs are met.

Fantastic day. We highly recommend John Rice and Tour Delft.

Thanks for such kind words Ken, it was great to meet you all and to be able to give you all the stories behind the sights - Lunch was very kind of you and perhaps next time we can Tour The Hague together on your holidays in Holland. Kindest regards John
