I had a great introduction to the city of the Hague by Michel this Saturday. He was enthusiastic and provided enough information about the city's history within the wider context of Dutch history, enriching his stories with jokes, anecdotes, and images. I would highly recommend both the tour and the guide!

At the end of January, we were lucky to get on a free tour of The Hague. To begin with, the city seemed gloomy to us, but our guide Ronald was able to completely change our attitude to the city and show The Hague from a completely different point of view. Also Ronald has very good sense of humor and tell us about some holland staff. Not only he did the tour, which lasted 2 hours, go very quickly, our guide also helped us find the best places for food, shopping and suggested where you can see the most important masterpieces of The Hague!

I quite liked the walking tour. Ronald was prepared and showed us maps and relevant pictures. Overall, I found the tour informative and entertaining, while the pace was just right. Ronald was mindful not to leave anyone behind either. I totally recommend taking the tour; it will help you decide what to visit later and spend more time on. 😁

I loved it!! We had lots of fun during the tour. Oskar was a very good story teller, was very enthusiastic and really knew what he was talking about! It was very nice to have some inside information about the city and learn some more about The Hague's history. The tour was a nice length, not too much walking and overall I had a really nice experience. Definitely would recommend!

We went to the Peace Palace before joining this tour, discovering gems of shops and bistros on the way there. It was a hot day to juggle the usual tourist gears and jump from shade to shade, but Ronald, our guide, always waited until everyone was within hearing range and told stories about the sights, surroundings and their backgrounds that showed us the Dutch spirit and history reflected in the choices of the royals to the comic sculpture Harry around the Boterwaag at the Grote Markt.

We realized the significance of the less obvious landmarks like the unnamed Dandy sculpture, the Old Church and the Gold Weighing Station too, for the above reason. When we went back to the city the second time a few days later, I could relate to Ronald's explanations much better and could plan our day better based on his tour.

Oh, the various ethnic foods are truly great in this city, retaining their authenticity with good prices.

I along with my friends joined the Free Walking Tour with Ronald in The Hague. We started our tour from Mauritshuis then followed at the square where William of Orange statue is built. Ronald explained to us the details of history and how William of Orange was the forefather of The Netherlands, explaining the minute details why the dog is there on Statue. He also explained to us the surrounding building and its significance. We proceeded to the prime minister's office and to the royal summer palace. He was well versed with the history of the city and had detailed knowledge about the places, be it the historical hotel where people ruling Indonesia use to live or how it had an entrance for the horse carriage. Explaining the famous Hague bluffs with a statue. It was a two-hour-long trip, really enjoyable with Ronald's wit and humor. The best part of the trip was Standbeeld Haagse Harley and how he represents the divide in the society.

Ronald was an extremely knowledgeable and very humble guide, with loads of loads of information. He covered almost all the major attractions in just two hours. I would strongly recommend people to take walking tour trip with Ronald.

Ronald was an amazing tour guide! He is extremely knowledgeable, and gave us a crash course on The Hague without making it boring. He covered a lot topics, including many of the royal palaces, several museums, the popular Hague candy (hopjes), the royal family, architecture, and the Dutch government while also telling us folklore stories which I very much enjoyed. The tour was made even more informative with the many maps he showed us that he carried along with him, in addition to sharing with us a piece of haagsche hapje candy, and providing us with a guide on what to do and eat in The Hague that he wrote himself - he truly went above and beyond, and was very friendly and open to questions. Although I had been to the Hague before, taking Ronald's tour gave me a newfound appreciation for it. I highly recommend to everyone, and I wish I could take more tours with him in other cities!

We went on the morning tour at 10.30am on the first day of our trip. The tour was a great walking tour that takes you to many of the key places in The Hague. The pace and the information wasnt too much and i never felt rushed away from a spot that we were looking at.Our guide Oscar was also great at giving recommendations for eating like a local and avoiding the tourist traps

I recommend this walking tour for anyone who wants to know a bit more about my city, The Hague. I joined a friend because I was curious about what a tour guide could tell more then I already know about the city I love. Ronald is a great guide, although he is not originally from The Hague, I am happy to say that he taught me a few things I did not know. He has lived here for 40 years, loves The Hague and next to architecture and art, he has a lot of anecdotes and a great sens of humor. He speaks English very well and is also very interested in other cultures and countries. He also made lovely a picture of the group that will be posted on the FB. This guide tour is free but of course you can give something to show your appreciating at the end of the tour. I just mention this because I was not prepared for that, as I don't have much cash on me nowadays. Well that maybe an incentive to take this tour another time and be prepared :)

We had a very nice tour with our guide on a cloudy Thursday afternoon. We got to learn a lot about the city, saw beautiful buildings and got to taste typical Den Hague sweets. We can highly recommend taking the tour.
